Developing


At HoC, anyone can present ideas to be developed for film, television or a short. We want to stockpile as many properties as possible so that we are always ready to pitch when we see an opportunity. The process always starts with a seed idea. This idea is often accompanied by a phrase like "it would be cool if" or "that's ridiculous, nobody will buy that". Next is a treatment. A treatment is basically a script without the dialogue. If the idea is still interesting at this point, we will start producing artwork. I'm a big fan of artwork that is as new and original as possible. If the idea is still compelling, we produce a bible and write a script. At this point it is time to call the agent and prepare to pitch to studios.
