"A Canadian success story!"-MacLean's

Pitch documents two childhood friends trying to do everything in their power to sell a comedy script they've written together.

Kenny Hotz and Spenny Rice bornin Toronto, this dynamic duo began filmmaking almost a dozen years ago.Together they have written five scripts and produced two short films before collaborating on Pitch.

The directors expose their valiant efforts to hawk their first feature screenplay at the 1996 Toronto International Film Festival.This humorous documentary recounts their relentless attacks on celebrities, producers and anyone else who will listen.Unperturbed, the filmmakers take their script to Hollywood.Pitch reveals the anxieties, psychoses and ruthless tactics that lie beneath the surface of show business - providing great entertainment in the process.
