Where did the idea come from ? Who are the project holders ?
The idea was to go one step further in the Show Industry. We want to a create a social network that gives the opportunity to the fans across the globe to choose what they would like to see implemented. The holders are Paul Fotiades, Antonis Triantafyllopoulos, Thanos Valimitis and Marie Barazian.
What do they do ? What’s the project about ?
Script-Up gives scriptwriters the opportunity to promote for free print material of their copyright and detailed synopses of completed scripts for films, series, theatrical plays, books and videogames. The readers’ evaluation/review will be the first feedback for producers/publishers that are in search of new ideas and if the script is likeable by the audience they’d ask to read the complete version and then produce/publish it. Scipt-Up aims to enter the market of films, series, books, videogames, theatrical plays and anything that has script in its core.
Why did they create it ? What kind of impact (social, artistic, innovative,) does the project have?
We want to give the opporutnity to talented screenwriters from around the world with limited resources to promote their work. Our project has social and artistic impact because, in a way, it gives the fans the freedom of speach on which script they would like to see implemented.
How does the SMATH Project help them? What are the next steps?
On the one hand we gained some important knowledge and on the other hand we saw that many things we had thought about the future development of our product were right. We are in the process of final and official implementation of Script-Up to launch it towards the end of 2020 with the beginning of 2021.
