Q3 JOHNNY24 - PROJECT SECTOR SCOPE & ALIGNMENT

Which of these sectors does your project address? What should I include in this section?

Select one main sector:

advertising and marketing
architecture
arts and culture
broadcasting including sport
crafts
design
fashion
film
games
music
- publishing

A. Publishing. The applicant is technically dormant, in the preparation stages leading up to trading. The applicant wishes to become a publisher, as a pathway to films. The applicant is the proprietor of three titles suitable for adaptation to graphic novels, copyright asserted and trademark granted for one of the titles (Kulo Luna) and TM applied for (Elizabeth Swann and John Storm) - where trademarks might not be appropriate for two of the titles (Cleopatra The Mummy and Treasure Island Blackbeard's gold), but copyright protection is secured via cover art. The applicant aims to take the first of the 3 titles, and covert it into 3 parts of around 65 pages each, to equal a normal comic length/read for each issue. Of which, the applicant seeks to develop the first of the 3 parts, up to print format, with the completed adaptation ready to be converted to artwork, limited to the first part of the first story. The applicant has a draft script for Kulo Luna and Cleopatra The Mummy. The applicant proposes leading with "Cleopatra The Mummy." As being a commercially attractive subject, likely to be assimilated in the graphic novel world, as a title that is original, but where the subject matter is sufficiently alluring to readers of such publications.

 

JOHNNY24: SCOPE AND ALIGNMENT

 

Q3. How does your project align with the scope of this competition?

 

Describe how your project fits the scope of the competition. If your project is not in scope it will not be sent for assessment. We will tell you the reason why.

 

What should I include in the project scope?

To be in scope your project must:

- demonstrate a clearly innovative and ambitious idea

 

- be new to your business, with a demonstrable impact to your growth plan

 

- create a new revenue stream, for example new products, services or IP

 

- respond to the changing market conditions, such as new modes of audience consumption, or the adoption of new technologies within the sector

 

- be market ready within 12 months of receiving support

 

- demonstrate value for money


A. The applicant is new to publishing and the film world, and is an SME based in East Sussex. The proposal constitutes a business plan that is both innovative and ambitious, responding to changing market conditions. Taking a company that has developed intellectual property, to the next stage of the process to become a publisher, leading into films, via simple act of publishing in a format that is readily digestible, since the format parallels the Story Boards used in film production. The intention to progress the series of three original stories under development, from initial book story form, through the publication of graphic novels, to films scripts, aimed at live action and/or animation features, demonstrates an achievable growth plan.

 

But more importantly, where the applicant is an unknown, and relatively unskilled in the literary sense, such lack of prowess prose wise, is overcome. Since, a picture paints a thousand words. These days the film community is a relatively closed shop, the graphic novel versions of the original stories, overcomes.

The applicant proposes readying the first issue (Cleopatra The Mummy) of the proposed 3 series projects, from draft script, to be able to proceed to print ready artwork, within six months from the 1st of June 2023, leading to an initial print run of the first part of the first story, within 12 months from 30th of November 2023.

This will generate an income stream for the company. That income stream is to be re-invested, minus overheads, in the artwork for the second issue, while simultaneously developing the Treasure Island story. Such as to be able to keep the/any customer base generated from the debut 'First Issue,' informed of, and eager to read the next in the series of ocean and climate adventures.

The suggestion is that the proposed cure, represents value for money, because the risk is reduced, since the act of publishing, will generate an income. Regardless of whether or not, movie makers decide the Franchise represents good box office.
