BESE PILOT COMPETITION
Zoe Saldana launched BESE as a digital platform and content studio to broaden and reshape the cultural narrative by shining light on stories that reflect today’s America. American Latinx is a growing, thriving community and a cultural force but their stories have remained historically marginalized. BESE fills a niche for young Latinx audiences craving positive portrayals of the modern American experience that reflect the new mainstream. The goal of this contest is to find a new voice to help us do this.
THE CHALLENGE: Submit a 2-3 min pilot presentation that, if chosen, will be developed into an episodic short-form web series.
Each episode should have a cost breakdown between $1,000-$1,500, including crew, gear and any stock footage licensing. The series will play on the website BESE.com, as well as all of BESE's social channels including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
The theme of the pilot should reflect at least one of the pillars of our content programming: Nation, Culture and Identity. The style and format is open - documentary, experimental, light-hearted comedy - but the concept should be big enough to become an evergreen series. Although the series should be rooted in Latinx themes, we are open to working with all kinds of filmmakers and hearing their stories about representation and identity as well.
