“Pitching” is a vital step in creating a good documentary

By ASHLEY HAU, Siu-ki


Nov 6 – Creative ideas are required in good documentary. The director, Wong Siu Pong, said: “Pitching idea is an important step in producing a documentary and you need to convince the producers by telling them the worthiness of your idea.” However, “pitching” is not popular in Hong Kong.


Wong, the director of "Fish Story", attended the general assembly at Shue Yan University in this afternoon. He shared his experience about entering the documentary industry.


"It was a fortune that my first documentary was already invited to join a film festival, which allow me to get the first ‘admission ticket’ into the documentary industry," said Wong. He later joined various programs and tried to accumulate experience in pitching documentary ideas through doing the proposal. He said creating good portfolio was the first step to enter their industry.


"Documentary is different from television program. A documentary can give you different impression when you watch once in every year," said Wong. He continued that documentary did not like feature film, which did not have assumption in planning and pitching processes. Wong added documentary aimed to communicate with the audience, so a message is needed to convey in a good documentary.


"Pitching" is not a popular culture in Hong Kong, but in China and Taiwan, said Ada Li, CNEX Foundation Manager. She indicated that most of the television program and documentary were produced in-house or bought from other places. She said only the Radio Television Hong Kong required to "pitch" stories as some of their program are outsourcing.


Li continued that more free channels would be available in the future, so the culture of "outsourcing" and "pitching" would flourish. She reminded the students to aware this coming trend.
