BOOK SCOUT

LITTERARY WATCH

We scan past and present international literature production and unveil plots for movies to come.

 

Reviewing new publications gives us the ability to foresee and analyze trends to come. We are able to keep an eye on the most recent literature or not yet published or translated manuscripts.

THEME REPORTS

Selection of novels, plays, comic books, according to specific themes and guidelines.

 

The works that stand out are analyzed by our team according to their potential to be adapted as screenplays.

Initiative Film is at the root of bridges and connexions in between the book world and the film industry and guides directors and producers in their research for books to adapt.

Literature as an inspiration isn't a new phenomenon, but the number of films inspired by books is growing. In view of the large scope of choices, we often face this following questioning: How to find the book that will be the one that you wish to adapt ? Unless you fall in love by chance with a book, orchestrating an encounter between a book and a director or producer is a more reliable way of finding the appropriate source of inspiration. 

 

Initiative Film tackles this issue, either by specific research around identified desires revealed by the director or producer, either through a theme report, which gathers books around a specific prism.
