Quotations from the experts

 

I hope that FreshPitch can move ahead together with all creative producers who are enthusiastic and awed about recording, protect Chinese documentary producers, and create an environment for co-prosperity with additional materials and co-growth of various recording forms. With the foundation, documentaries appropriate to Chinese history and culture should be produced to establish a virtuous ecosystem that contributes to documentary development in China. I also hope that the devotion and persistence of all documentary producers can be rewarding.

 

——Li Chengcai, a scholarly producer sought after by political, commercial and academic elites, and an expert advisor to FreshPitch

 

 

This is an exciting era. Recording and publishing dribs and drabs of life have been a right and joy for almost all people. More eyes in the world find more stories, which will acquaint us with the other parts of the world. Thanks to connectivity, we can acquire new audiences. This provides a stronger force that makes a closer connection between ideas and actions.

 

——Zhao Qi, a world-renowned documentary producer and director, the founder of FreshPitch

 

 

Documentaries reveal the reason why we become us.They are not ethnic screams in a narrow sense, but clips produced in artistic forms with verism. It records the past, as well as the present and the future. I hope that audiences can appreciate the gentleness and vastness of the documentary format in addition to the cruelty and line drawing. Todays China needs calm constructors, deposits of wisdom and bold innovations.

——Gan Chao, a leader of the factual content cross-boundary industry, an expert advisor to FreshPitch
