I recently stumbled upon sizzlepitch.com, a website designed to help film and video producers find home for their projects. Be it drama, non-fiction, web or stand-up comedy, you can upload your project-in-progress and even get help on it. The CEO, Jijo Reed, assured me that they have had success getting both development and production deals. Here is what he says on sizzlepitch.com:
