The Art of the Pitch

Having become bored with the pleasures of being a broadcaster with LBC and Abu Dhabi Media Company and wielding unimaginable power in commissioning programs and approving budgets for television, Karim Sarkis has now decided to run his own production company, Sync Media, so he too can experience the unglamorous life of the content creator. 

"Write from the heart. Follow your imagination. Create your dreams and success will follow."a.k.a. Rubbish advice and other myths in the content creator's business journey.

    • Lina M

      Hi Mohammed - missed seeing you tonite. It would have been a good idea to have a few people try out their pitches on Karim. Wish you'd suggested it earlier. Would have asked people to come come prepared.

    Well it was okay, but somewhere lacking there shud have been introduction from organiser, and worse was there were people who were tired so just were not interested to interact and bluntly said on face , why on Earth were they attending if they were tired , and business cards when asked people denied well how one connect and what's the sense for having meetup well my time is precious , I have come to interact and even I had hard day and tired , so this was Dissappointing point.Not accepted at all.

    By the way, I'd just like to mention that I am currently working on an indie short-film project with a friend of mine. If we get our film complete soon, it would be our pleasure to screen it if everybody's interested. Just thought I'd put it out there.
