“Gluten Free” documentary PitchBy Matthew Wheeler
Content outline of documentary What is Gluten? Who is affected by gluten? What are the affects on people who eat Gluten? How are “Gluten free” people countering not being ableto eat Gluten. What are experts doing to try and cure this problem.
Why you should invest inmy production This documentary topic is unique from mostdocumentaries you find on TV these days. It is an informative documentary which people (affectedby Gluten or know someone who is) will benefit fromwatching. From market research, I have found that there arebarely any market competitors who have touched thesame topic for a documentary. This makes mydocumentary stand out in the market from other marketcompetitors.
Target audience My target audience is people who areaffected by gluten. This is a large targetaudience due to the fact that every one inten people in the UK is diagnosed withcoeliac (a illness which has effects on theperson when they eat Gluten)
Market Competitors One of my market competitors that I analysed wassupersize me. I find that “super size me’s” biggeststrength is, as opposed to just talking about howbad McDonalds is for you, he is actuallyshowcasing it. This is much more entertaining forthe audience to watch.
