The Company Behind 'The Pitch'
London based production company, Wilder, a home to directors, producers, writers, thinkers and doers, has a long history of award-winning
shorts. Last year we were on the hunt for a comedy script to make a new short to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
We were thrilled to be introduced to TV comedy writers Will Maclean and Marc Haynes, and their hilarious script for 'The Pitch' got an instant thumbs-up from all the team.
All we needed then, was to secure the talents of a top director, in this case Wilder favourite, John Hardwick, two great leads in the form of Richard Glover & Justin Edwards, our wonderful Wilder crew & choose a day to shoot.
Filmed over one day in an office in Covent Garden, 'The Pitch' must go down as our most enjoyable shoot ever!
