Dave B and Casey gave themselves a crazy challenge: come up with 30 movie pitches in 30 days. This podcast explores their many fake movies ideas and their very real movie inspirations.
The Final Pitch ...or is it?
Starting this podcast was a great idea. Ending it would be a terrible one. So in that spirit, Dave B. and Casey are talking about bad ideas. And how a potentially bad concept can lead to a good one. Then they pitch the worst ideas from their 30-day movie pitch challenge.
And while this might be the end of their first season, they’ll be back.
The Haunting of Pitch House
This episode is all about the genre we love to scream at. Dave B. and Casey talk about how horror films have shaped their lives. And they tackle the biggest question of them all: Fast zombies or slow zombies? They also pitch two films that fit into two different subgenres of horror, but are both somehow connected to BLACK CHRISTMAS (2019).
In space, no one can hear you pitch movies. So Dave B and Casey are using this episode as an opportunity to talk about all things sci-fi.
Dave B and Casey turn to a life of crime… in the movies, of course. This episode is all about the crime genre.
Fade in on Dave B. and Casey arguing about why those who pronounce the word biopics as “BI-opics” are wrong. Then they pitch some movies about people.
We open on a movie pitch that soon realizes it’s in a movie about movie pitches. That’s right… Dave B and Casey are going meta.
Masterclass in Creativity
Casey and Dave B crack me up with their encyclopedic movie banter. Their voices and personalities play off each other in a classically comedic way. But this podcast is way beyond entertaining. Casey and Dave break down their mission behind the podcast: to help loosen you up and trigger your creativity. Listening in on their playfulness and joy in pitching is infectious. For screenplay writers the education on genre and mixing it up is invaluable. I myself had no intention of pitching a movie when I started listening to this podcast. Seven episodes in, an idea came to me and I pitched a buddy-picture idea to a friend. Whether or not anything comes of it, I’m now hooked—like these guys—on getting ideas out into the world.
Two movie geeks go mano-a-mano
I love movies, I love creativity, and I love Dave B and Casey. This is the perfect podcast to add to your rotation.
The only downside? Not being able to actually see these movies (yet).
It’s a fun way to spend 30 minutes and I’m looking forward to the next 58 movie pitches. I liked it enough to actually open the *Apple Podcasts* app like some kind of monster just to leave this review so other people will subscribe.
