View Full Version : One script - 10 films

06 June 2005, 02:27 PM
Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this - if not, let me know and point me in the right direction.

A project is currently underway by a filmmaker in Australia (Adam Todd of Iconoclast Productions) which involves gathering ten filmmakers each shooting their own version of the same script "House on the Hill" which is attached here.

Anyway, he's found another filmmaker in L.A. who's come aboard so now he's looking for eight more to join. He'd like for these filmmakers to be from different countries so we now have Adam in Australia and Jack from the U.S. Anyone interested in joining, even if you're from Australia or the U.S., are welcomed to contact Adam at Please copy myself in the email:

Here's the advertisement Adam is using in search of willing filmmakers to join. The plan is to put all ten versions of this film on one dvd. This is live action but I thought it would be cool if someone did an animated version or even partial animation. Anyway, read Adam's ad below then read the attached script (10 pages) and let us know if you're interested. Thanks.

FROM ADAM TODD (Iconoclast Productions based in Australia):

I've recently become involved with a writer in the USA over a short
script that I feel was quite well written. Especially for a short

Anyway, he mentioned that another producer based in the USA was also
interested so I proposed the idea that we collaborate as two teams and
the film from our own interpretations and in our own countries. Then
final products.

I then added that I might be able to find a few other people in other
countries and it would be nice to have say 6-10 teams all making the
short over the next six months, compile the shorts on a DVD and send
back to the teams. Of course the films can also be entered as
combined or
singular entries into festivals as well, or even screened in your own
region if you're up to organizing it.

I think it's a great project and am seeking SERIOUS expressions of
from countries other than Australia and the USA to participate.

Presently we would like to open to one team from each country.
However, we
may consider applications from an already existing participating
as resources, regions and facilities are all often very different.

This is not so much about "production quality" as it is about telling
story from your teams interpretation.

If you are interested, please contact me OFF LIST with your full name,
contact details, and country of production.

I'll submit the Expressions of Interest to the writer and other
for review.

Please note that the production will be set to a time table and you're
commitment to meet it will be critical. We're not going to hold your
and push you along. Find a Producer who will do that because we'll be
with our own efforts! Deadlines presently have not been decided or
discussed so anyone who jumps in now will have some kind of say.

Teams will be given full access to the Iconoclast Production Management
System online as it will already contain all the details for the script
project. You can use as much or as little as you like.

This will be fun! Lets show the world what we can all do!

I'll talk to my friends. Maybe you'll get one from Cuba!

That would be great! If you guys do decide to pursue this let Adam Todd ( and myself ( know whether it'll be live-action, animation or partial animation - or whatever, really, it's up to the individual to decide how this story will be told.

Any chance this could be done partial animation? Some scenes shot as live-action and then cutting to animated scenes - back and forth? Or a live action actor/actress speaking to an animated actor/actress?

Either way, let me know if you can get someone to come aboard. Adam Todd, who's coordinating this, plans to award prizes - not only will everyone work towards putting together an awesome dvd of ten films but it'll be a competition as well between the different teams. Let me know here or at what you're able to find out. Also shoot Adam a line at
