NYC: Twisted Pitchers

August 11, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Twisted Pitchers

How much can a twist change your pitch?

Want to elevate your pitch? Then join us for Twisted Pitchers. This popular and creative simulation game previously explored at Kidscreen Summit, is now being brought to CMA with host David Kleeman!

Small groups will be challenged to develop an idea and pitch it in just 10 minutes. Some elements are the same for all, and some are unique to each group—the idea is to find out how much a single twist can alter a concept. Come as a team, or meet up with new friends, but get ready to try and hit our creative curveballs out of the park.


Date and Time: Tuesday, August 11th, 6:30 to 8:30pm
Location: 1900 Broadway, 8th floor, New York, NY 10023


More about our host:  David Kleeman

Strategist, analyst, author and speaker — for more than a quarter-century, David Kleeman has led the children’s media industry in developing sustainable, kid-friendly practices.

As a thought leader and connector, Kleeman loves exploring big questions like “what is the future of children’s media content in the streaming age” or “is children’s play changing as they interact with a mix of the digital and the physical.” At the same time, he enjoys creating playful events where people from media, education, research and child development can create and collaborate on the fly. He’s done this work for PlayScience and the American Center for Children and Media.

Kleeman is advisory board chair to the international children’s TV festival (Prix Jeunesse), a 2013 Senior Fellow of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media, a board member of the National Association for Media Literacy Education, and a Governor of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 2014, he received the “Pioneer” Award from Kids @ Play Interactive.

Kleeman travels worldwide seeking best practices in children’s and family media, technology and products; he has given presentations on six continents.  He writes extensively for trade and general press, including three book chapters (J. Alison Bryant’s “The Children’s Television Community”; Singer & Singer’s “Handbook of Children and the Media”; and Chip Donohue’s “Technology and Digital Media in the Early Years“). He also writes frequent commentaries for the Huffington Post and Kidscreen.
