Digipitch is a SAAS-based screenwriting and pitching platform for the Hollywood industry utilizing the Blockchain for secure transactions for non-represented and represented writers.
The Passing of our Mentor
Ken Rotcop was the acknowledged Grand Master of Pitching, the creator and owner of Pitchmart, an internationally recognized pitch festival for writers and development executives. He was the first to establish the bridge between unknown aspiring screenwriters and Hollywood.
Digipitch, although the brainchild of Eric Wayne Key, was inspired by Rotcop back in 1999. Ken mapped out the blueprint in which scripts were pitched – Key took that method and re-imagined it digitally.
As a former Creative Head of four Hollywood studios including Embassy Pictures, Cannon TV, Trans World Productions and Hanna-Barbera, Ken supervised The Lion in Winter, Carnal Knowledge, The Graduate, and Charlotte’s Web. As a screenwriter, Rotcop’s most prestigious production (which he both wrote and produced) was For Us, the Living: The Story of Medgar Evers, which starred Laurence Fishburne. The movie won the Writer’s Guild Award, the Image Award, and the Neil Simon Award.
Mr. Rotcop passed away on October 6, 2018 after a brief illness.
He will be missed greatly.
