Launched today, TaleFlick is a new digital platform allowing storytellers to shop content to the entertainment industry. Announced by Hollywood producer Uri Singer of Passage Films and former Netflix and Apple executive George Berry, TaleFlick allows authors to submit their work to the platform and have it placed into the first-ever library of searchable content that has been categorized and curated for studio executives around the world.
Studios, networks and streaming services are constantly on the hunt for quality original stories and content, and the competition for new intellectual properties (IPs) has been heating up. The new platform is a huge innovation in the way original stories will transition from the page to the screen. TaleFlick provides authors with a more direct way to potentially monetize their stories and secure important studio relationships.
How Does TaleFlick work?
Submitted works are entered into the TaleFlick platform and advanced algorithms categorize and classify the content, with each piece of content also being reviewed by TaleFlick’s on-staff team of industry experts. This ensures that the best works are easily searchable by studio executives seeking compelling stories to bring to the big and small screens.
The TaleFlick platform, which accepts published books has a simple process for authors seeking to have their content made available for studios to view. For a fee of $88 per title, per year, submitted stories will be curated and then made available for one year on TaleFlick.com. Authors retain all rights to their books but give TaleFlick the option to bid on their rights and present their stories to studios and production companies.
Currently, TaleFlick has already selected over a dozen works on the platform to be pitched major studios and Fortitude International has already optioned two female-driven properties – historical fiction Madame Presidentess and essay collection Starfish on Thursday. Both center on strong women going up against overwhelming adversity. The company is eyeing feature adaptations of each, demonstrating that TaleFlick is already making an impact on the industry.
