ULTRA-SHORT PITCHING COMPETITION

A few days ago, I wrote about the industry’s most famous pitch – a mere three words – “Jaws in Space.” It was the original pitch for Alien. And I set an ultra-short pitching competition to find a two word and a one word pitch – the only ones I know of.

Here, then, are my answers.

A two-word pitch – “Harry Potter.”

And that one-word pitch? “Superman.”

Obviously, before either of those were actually turned into film. Tell me if you come up with any others.
