SHORT ARMS - LONG LEGS PITCH




Back in the spring I put together this pitch for Nickelodeon's International Open Mics ...
"Open Mics give creators the chance to “show not tell” their idea for a breakout character. Creators are invited to produce and deliver a fully funded, 3min non-airing pilot featuring a break out, visually diverse and funny new character."...
I thought this would be the perfect time to pitch Short-Arms Long-Legs, who I thought up a few years ago, but sadly he was turned down. They just didn't think he was the kinda kid other kids would want to be like. I can understand where they were coming from, but for some reason I've always been drawn to characters like this. Characters with obvious flaws and short comings that they manage to work around in clever ways.
