I'm looking some help and advice to ensure there are no hiccups in moving the original script to a CC license.

I bought (paid for) the script from Alex Whitmer, the original author.

Where does this leave me in respect of IP and the ability to decide on licensing of the work?

At the moment, the plan is defenitly to film the original script in it's current form.

This too will be included as part of this collaborative project.

From the site of Alex Whitmer, screenwriter and author of "The Shed":

This site is all about film – from a screenwriter’s point of view.

All film begins with story, after which all the other disciplines, in a glorious show of collaboration – usually anyways – interpret and dissect and maul that story until you have – film, one of the two greatest communicators of ideas in the history of humankind. The internet is the other.

On this site, there are numerous articles on writing, pages with feature and short screenplay samples, and pages with industry information.

How can we expand the ideas in the original scripts to include the points of view of the serial killer and the detective hunting him. My idea for the base part of the story is: Script 1: Serial killer stalks woman. Serial killer kidnaps woman. Serial killer tortures woman. Script 2: (occurs after script 1 in timeframe) Woman escapes. Woman captures torturer. Woman goes insane exacting her revenge. Script 3: (overlaps script 1 and 2 in timeframe) Detective tracks serial killer to woman's town. Detective tracks down the house the serial killer uses. Detective arrests woman thinking she is the serial killer. Keep in mind that the scripts need to follow the overall story. Ordering of the scenes will be done (hopefully) by hundreds of hands in hundreds of ways.

I'd love to help with story development ideas, but I'm not 100% sure what kind of help you're after.

The general plot sounds fine, though perhaps a bit too familiar to audiences?

And what did you mean by "How can we expand the ideas in the original scripts to include the points of view of the serial killer and the detective hunting him"?

by: Justin Pradier

I'd really like to see the woman start off with sheer determination to give the killer as good as he has dished out, but her true self not being able to cope and she travels the slow spiral into madness as she tries to reconcile what she is doing with her true self. How can this be shown?

New task: The Scripts

These are the original scripts. One is the short film version written by Alex Whitmer, the other is what was the start of my vision for the film.

Justin Pradier created a new production "The Shed Collaboration"

A serial killer's final conquest.
A detective's final case.
A young woman's nightmare.

'The Shed' is a short film script by Alex Whitmer which I purchased with the intent on turning it into a feature length film.

I have now decided to use the script as the basis for an idea I have for an attempt at creating a CC based mixable movie.

The goal of The Shed Collaboration is to create 3 scripts, each from the point of view of the 3 main characters. This process will include planning of camera angles, set designs and production notes as well as dialogue.

Phase 2 would then be to crowdfund the funds for hiring the crew required to film each set of scripts resulting in 3 films worth of raw footage that can then be released under a creative commons license, allowing for the remixing of the 3 scripts. You could create a detective movie, a psychological thriller, a horror or a mix of the three.
