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?
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:
Serial killer stalks woman.
Serial killer kidnaps woman.
Serial killer tortures woman.
Script 2: (occurs after script 1 in timeframe)
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.
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.
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.
