The Tongal Community consists of so many incredible creators and filmmakers, producing thousands of amazing videos every year, and as that community has grown – as that output has grown – the content we’ve been able to showcase on our YouTube channel has accumulated over 30,000 Subscribers. However, it’s never really been tailor made for our YouTube… until now. Now, we’re giving you the opportunity and creative freedom to let your out-of-the-box ideas fly, to play around and showcase your work directly to Tongal’s over 30,000 subscribers.
In this project, we’re asking you to create original content for the Tongal YouTube Channel, with any kind of video from 1 to 5 minutes in length. These can be individual videos, or even a limited video series, with a budget of $250 per video. Our goal is to greenlight a minimum of 4 videos for the first batch. If you’re pitching a series, this project will serve as a chance to develop your pilot.
While we’ll be refining the YouTube Channel over time, for the first quarter of 2021 THESE. VIDEOS. CAN. BE. ANYTHING. What do we mean by that? SCRIPTED. UNSCRIPTED. VIDEO LISTS. MINI-DOCUMENTARIES, HOW TO’S. FOUND FOOTAGE REMIXES, ANIMATIONS. MONTAGES. VIDEO ESSAYS. SHORTS. PRODUCT REVIEWS. COLLAGES. PUPPETS. CRAFTS. VLOGS. We’ll even consider existing content for the channel, and like we said, it can be an individual video, or a short series.
For your Pitch, we’re open to taking a look at ideas and concepts that aren’t yet fully formed, and happy to help you develop something that has potential. Look below at our reference videos to see the level of diversity we’re open to. When you submit your videos, our producers may have revisions and suggestions.
This is an always-on project and you can submit anytime. However, we will be reviewing the first batch of pitches on Feb 1 and on a bi-weekly basis moving forward.
