Brand new in 2020: M:brane Pitch Training!

Producer Thomas Borch Nielsen, Nice Ninja, DK join our team as Pitch Tutor for M:brane.
Pitching is an artform and requires skills and lots of training!
In 2020 we are thrilled to be able to expand with pre-pitch training including an online session prior to the event with follow up online meetings and also meetings directly in connection to the event in Malmö for the officially selected producers in the Pitch Sections. For the Pitching Teams it is a unique possibility for strengthening their presentation skills, which in the end can “make or break” a successful outcome of attending the Forum. This new M:brane initiative will become a leverage of kids & youth content and status.
We are so pleased, that Thomas Borch Nielsen has agreed to work with our pitching teams prior to the Forum. We have witnessed Thomas’ own pitching skills at a number of occasions, where he pitched his own projects at the Forum Stage. And let’s be frank: We are in awe of his ability to make a strong, vivid, entertaining pitch that keeps the 5 minutes full of value. Beyond that, he is a seasoned trainer for international pitching teams and we welcome him with widespread arms to the M:brane team.
Thomas Borch Nielsen says:
"M:brane is the perfect opportunity to pitch your project to the world and I will do my best to help you make an awesome presentation."
