EPISODE ONE – S1
The first four episodes document the unpredictable and inspiring immersion in the Make48 inventor’s competition to develop REAL products. With the constant pressure of the “ticking clock” we engage up close and personal with the teams as they brainstorm, design and build their ideas in order to pitch a working prototype to a team of industry savvy Make48 judges.
From napkin drawing to design, we’ll watch these competitors suffer the highs and lows, showing the true nature of bringing a prototype to life in only 48 hours.
Of course, our teams may seek advice from our “Tool Techs” – professional inventor/fabricators – at any point along the way, as Make48 aims to provide a level playing field at all times. Industry A-listers will also roam the competition floor and give advice on all facets of teams’ development.
At the 24 hour mark the inventors go before a focus group of industry experts to pitch their initial ideas and get feedback. Utilizing this advice the teams must tweak their designs and marketing, all in anticipation of their final pitch before the judges.
At the end of Episode four, time is up!
