Iron Sky Fanchise is the fan-powered franchise. We want to create awesome online content set in the Iron Sky Universe. You have the ideas.
Pitch us a story or a concept you think would fit the world of Iron Sky and we could produce it together!
What we want to do is to find great ideas and work with you to make them into great content. This is not a competition, we aren’t looking for a lucky winner. What we offer you is to take your hand and walk trough the creative process with you, with all it’s highs and lows.
We’ll do an open call for pitches, be it for films, games, VR experiences or something we haven’t even thought of! We only have a few ground rules:
We will select our favorites, develop them with you on our crowdsourcing platform at ironsky.net, put them into production and travel to infinity and beyond! Short & feature films are of course the most familiar format to us, but we live in the future and have so many awesome ways to spend our time. If you have a great idea for a VR experience, a comic, podcast, game or something completely different we’d love to hear it! There are no limits on the media or the genre.
We are looking for simple pitches of under 500 character at this stage. However, once we move into development we’d love to have you more involved and use your talents. Your involvement beyond the pitch would depend on where your interests lie, maybe you would be the screenwriter, sound designer, director, producer or whatever position your skills would shine in!
We will do an open call for ideas. Short pitches or idea descriptions, no longer than 500 characters. Preliminary schedule for this is from May 2016 till the end of January 2017.
We select our favorite pitches and after that we will contact the authors if they would like to continue developing them further and in what capacity.
At this stage we’ll develop the most promising ideas further with you, up to the synopsis stage. Ideas can move towards development even before the January 2017 deadline for submissions.
Based on the synopses created in the development phase we will select a final group of projects that will move forward into pre-production.
Each project will be assigned a producer who is responsible for moving it forward. It could even be you or somebody else found through our platform. Iron Sky Universe will oversee the production and provide support.
At this stage we’ll get ready to produce the projects. Creating scripts, budgets and breakdowns. Basically this is the “all engines are go” stage. Though as this is show business, things can still chance.
Once we get here, it’s time to make the project into a reality!
We will create an individual release plan for the projects during production, with most of the projects most likely distributed digitally. We would expect that all upcoming Fanchise productions are able to stand as their own individual entertainment experiences or as part of a collection. For films we will aim for cinema screening(s), for other media we will select the most appropriate distribution methods.
