    Deleted Scenes: The Door That Could Open But Wouldn't

    Deleted Scenes: The Door That Could Open But Wouldn't

    We pitch another adventure story in which the strange goblin man (Tom Hiddleston) tries to lead a teen girl (Millie Bobby Brown)into a whimsical adventure. But... well, she's having none of it, and she's taking some of his whimsical world with her when she leaves.

    We also chat about the adventure genre in general and how wide and varied it can be.

    This is the Deleted Scenes for episode 301 of the Life's a Pitch Podcast, if this is your first time listening, we recommend going back and listening to the main episode, these out-of-context bits will have a bit more... context!

    Episode 301: Mom! There's A Treasure Map In My Cornflakes.

    This week we pitch some Adventure movies, but I guess there's a hangover from the product placement movies last week, because we pitched an ad anyway.

    Honourable Mentions:
    Johnny Johnny Eating Stars - The stars of hollywood are going missing, but will Dad from youtube be dragged into it? Find out the value of immersive narrative in this self-aware short film.

    The Great Ad-Venture - Madison Avenue is haunted by the ideas of ad men past. If Elijah Wood is to renovate the old offices into luxury apartments, he needs to get to the 'bottom' of this ass-spankin' ghost problem.

    Deleted Scenes: You Know When You've Been Tango'd

    We try to delete one of the worst ad campaigns in history by making everyone associate it with a tragic death, then we talk about eating the rich and selling out in movies!

    This is the deleted scenes from episode 300 of the Life's a Pitch podcast. If this is your first time listening, we recommend that you go back and listen to the main episode, then all this will make a bit more sense.

    Episode 300: Supercoke Vs Pepsiman

    Episode 300: Supercoke Vs Pepsiman

    This week, we're finally bowing to our corporate overlords and pitching ideas for product placement movies! Tom Holland and Keanu Reeves clash as the battle for the nation's identity comes into question.

    Honourable Mentions:
    The Dragon Who Gave Up Smoking - Big Tobacco the Dragon says "Don't give up"
    Is Pepsi ok? - An origin story to Pepsiman, little Max Pepsi is in a horrible accident, and someone's bought up the whole supply of sugar and is threatening to shut down Ma and Pa Pepsi's little family business. If only there was a sugarfree solution!

    Deleted Scenes: The Newer Testament

    Deleted Scenes: The Newer Testament

    We talk about Biblical movies, or "Bible Fanfic" and pitch a weird allegory about planned obsolescence in prophecies.

    This is the Deleted Scenes for episode 299 of the Life's a Pitch podcast. If this is your first time listening, it might make sense to go back and listen to the main episode, so this all has context!

    Episode 299: I Want To Be A Slug Priest

    Episode 299: I Want To Be A Slug Priest

    This week we try our hand at some more classic bible fanfic as we make biblical movies!
    Youth Pastor Parcell (Tom Holland) can't get his christian message through to the youth of the neighborhood, especially not with Rockstar Hottie (Tim Curry) corrupting them with drugs and guitar music! That's when an tiny saviour (Rhys Darby) is found in the most unlikely of places.

    Honourable Mentions:
    The Burning Bush - Moses, an easy-going musician, is treated to a manifestation of Yaweh in the form of a burning bush, and finds it so RAD he makes a whole festival around it in the desert.
    The Beatles Meet the Apostles - Losing your most talented member can be rough on any band, but will Paul McCartney heed the lessons of the original BTS (Big Time Saviour)?

Following the Fool ,

Pitch Perfect!

Tom and Matt are a delight, they work off of each other quite well, and they have a solid slate of guests come through to help them pitch some of the best movies that frankly SHOULD be made. Hollywood, I'm looking at you.

Hilarious

Always look forward to episodes of this great podcast. The humor is ever present and the hosts and guests are great!
