John Storm and Dan Hawk, at the helm of the Elizabeth Swann, discover they have no way to make it in the book or film world without a protracted gestation time, but discover they make excellent comic characters, ideal for publication as graphic novels.

 




Q11 JOHNNY24 - HOW WILL YOU PLAN AND SCHEDULE TO ACHIEVE PROJECT COMMERCIALISATION? HOW WILL YOU MANAGE THE PROJECT EFFECTIVELY?

Q11.
Risks (this question will be scored out of 10)

Explain:

11a - your approach in managing your project effectively

11b - your project plan identifying any links or dependencies between work packages, indicating the lead partner assigned to each and the total cost of each one

11c - your project risks and how you will mitigate them

 


11A. We consider this project too important to take on significant financial burdens at t his stage - over and above that the directors might personally inject. Risks that can and should be avoided. Having generated the IP, copyrights and trademarks, secured subject website rankings, etc., it might be considered imprudent to put the project in jeopardy, by rushing into a loan situation, that could tip us into insolvency - without first having tested the water. So handing all the hard work input so to date to potential competitors. Indeed, that would be counter productive for the British economy, as it is likely that US comic producers, European or Japanese Manga, might snap the concept up at an undervalue, or free, for the benefit of their exports. For example, turning our British super hero into an American or Japanese hero.

 

11B. Work packages are agreed between the Lead Partner (B Dusart) and story development (J Hunter), in a relatively flat management structure, where all participants are included in decision making. Our trainee (L Perrin) is assigned research tasks and other areas of administration, not having any creative input, other than opinion as to artwork and script quality and third party opinion as to editing of the latter.

 

In this case the work packages we are seeking help with, are "Characterisation" and "Script Conversion to Comic dialogue."

 

These will be shared and assigned to: 

 

1. J Hunter (for head shot pictures) of the character list below - 29 in total. And to edit existing script to suit speech and other commentary for the Cleopatra Comic Script. Total cost not to exceed 00.00 over six months.

 

2. B Dusart, to approve and confirm acceptance of the developed twenty-nine character arts. Then to approve Comic Script adaptation. The lead applicant, also to keep books relating to overheads and expenditure, and to instruct our Accountant to prepare interim accountancy reports. Total cost not to exceed 00.00 over six months, including accountancy fees limited to the supported period.

 

3. J King, to review script, and assist 1. & 2. is developing a Comic script. Total cost not to exceed 00.00 over three months.

 

4. L Perrin (trainee) to assist 1., 2. & 3. above, as part of his work experience.

 

Overheads directly related and attributable to this accelerated undertaking, including additional studio rental and proportional overheads, limited to 00.00. Total costs: 00.00

 

11C. Well never be able to stop our project from changing its cost profile completely. Hence, there needs to be an allowance for change, as in operational flexibility; its the very nature of business.

We prioritize risks, ranking them according to the likelihood they will happen and how much damage they can cause. The most challenging risk in this team is absenteeism, caused by colds and flu, as hit us over Christmas. We need to allow staff to work flexibly, to make up time that may have been lost in the proposed six month period. To get in front of delays before they start causing trouble. There is always the possibility of incorrect project forecasting, for which we hope to have allowed sufficient, at pain of staff working at a reduced rate for longer.

There is always a cost risk that a project will spend more money than was originally budgeted. It will either lead to an overspend on the project or a reduction in the deliverables as money is pulled from other areas to compensate for increased costs. We have this firmly in mind, conscious of the Terms and Conditions, some of which appear somewhat harsh.
