Martin to talk about adapting his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Martin's Hollywood bullshit detector was on high alert.

Their geek-boy résumés probably didn't hurt: Benioff, a D&D dungeon master in his youth, did the screenplay for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Weiss had a video-game-themed novel under his belt. Nor did their willingness to shelve all other creative pursuits—no small sacrifice for Benioff, who had adapted his own first novel, The 25th Hour, into the Spike Lee film starring Edward Norton, and followed that up with the fabulous 2008 book City of Thieves...."

How to Finance Your Next Film with European Co-Production Funds | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
If you’re a US-based filmmaker, you may not have considered co-production funding before because there are zero co-production treaties between the USA and Europe. (In comparison, Canada has 50. Thanks American studio system!) However, with a tiny bit of creativity, you can actually tap into hundreds of European film funds who actually want to invest in your movie.

carefully selected references, out of the big business projects driven by marketing. Here are some very fine inetractive work, listed and reviewed.

 

It would then be a good idea to carry on with rich media articles produced by the New York Times, The Guardian or smaller and newer media outlet taking full advantage of all that the digital age can offer in terms of user experience.
