TV series

Claude Jalbert

As you know, a screenwriter may have to lend their pen to many types of projects. Whether it's films, TV series, or even theatre plays, the screenplay projects are numerous! However, a screenwriter can also compose complete scenarios himself in the form of novels or even write stories of comic book characters!

TV Show for JPM

Claude Jalbert

Following up on our news from last week, here are some of the projects on our agenda for this year and for 2023! We are currently working on the production of a pilot for our web series Together Separately, which will start soon, as the shooting is planned for next September! Also, if funding is obtained, we may shoot our first web series as early as 2023 – details will be revealed as soon as production begins! Finally, a few short films from the novel Face à moi are currently being discussed and could be shot by the end of the year or early 2023. Please note that this aspect of JPM has been part of our strategic planning since its inception in 2015, but as we are first and foremost content producers, we have done our ideation work and hope to put all these ideas into images very soon.

JPM productions

On preproduction!

Claude Jalbert

It was in 2022 that we decided to develop the video side of the business. JPM is currently in preproduction for two feature films, Eclipse and The Northern Blonde. We are putting together the production team and doing the financial planning for these two films. A 2D animated Beaver series project is also in gestation. The mini-films are written and the production team for the 2D animation is on the horizon... To be continued! We'll give you news very soon!

JPM

The Canadian Beaver

Claude Jalbert

If you are already subscribed to our Beaver Facebook page, you will already know that you will soon have the chance to read about his new adventures in the next volume, "The Mansion of Lost Souls." Perhaps you are wondering how the creative process goes for each of our new issues?

Well, here is a short summary, just for you! And that's really because we love you guys, because we don't usually tell everyone our secrets!

Usually, we write a storyline of a story which allows us to synthesize an idea. It should be summarizable in two or three sentences maximum. Then, we write what we call a short synopsis. A short synopsis, depending on the length of the film or a book, can take a quarter of a page to a full page. In the case of Beaver, Volume 4 will be 46 pages long, so a paragraph or half a page will be enough to make up the short synopsis. For longer films or projects, sometimes a long synopsis is necessary. For example, a film lasting an hour and a half requires a 90-page script (1 page = 1 minute). To write a good screenplay, a long synopsis can be 10 to 20 pages long, which provides the screenwriter with enough details about the screenplay to write it and add the dialogue.

Can a screenwriter write a book?

The answer is obviously yes. However, since the two media are very different from each other, they cannot be done together. Even if the scenarist's work is very close to that of the novelist, his writing work must bend to many constraints: a budget, the time spent in each scene, the requirements of the producers, directors, the channel, a distributor, and occasionally the actors. In short, a screenplay will be completed only after various changes and requests have been met. The screenwriter usually bases his work on his own ideas, and it has to be validated by a set of people before it finally sees the light of day on the screen. The writer, who is alone with his story, will not be accountable to anyone if he goes through the self-publishing stage. If he depends on a publishing house, he will obviously have to answer to his publisher. The writer will therefore have much more creative freedom and latitude with his story than the screenwriter.

Rock Music Album

Claude Jalbert

A wind of change is blowing through JPM: we are currently in production! Our brand-new project? The recording of the rock music album entitled "The Unfinished Work" by the band Fragile.

The songs on the album are mainly composed by the author-composer Sylvain Dufour, whose favourite instrument is the bass. Inspired by 70s prog, the musical style is a mix of this period as much in the composition as in the sound, and it will be interesting for those who want a different listening experience. The arrangements vary a lot from one song to another, which make the album a rich one, musically speaking. Many artists have collaborated on this project. The album is scheduled for release in the spring of 2023! To learn more about our latest projects, continue to follow us on our blog.

The Zonzons

Claude Jalbert

JPM is on a roll when it comes to comics! A new series, The Zonzons, will soon appear! The first volume, “The Zonzons Leave Earth,” scheduled for release in the spring of 2023, is the story of three guys who leave Earth to seduce the most beautiful women in the galaxy. But when they arrive on the first planet, things don't go as planned. They have to deal with local conflicts. Our Zonzons, whose primary philosophy is hedonism, try to escape the problems in which they are immersed. Their crazy adventures will plunge us into a universe that is totally wild, but without a doubt, hilarious.

Caracters vs actor

Claude Jalbert

As a screenwriter, you will often need to make compromises. For example, a role that you have already written may not completely correspond to the actor or actress chosen for the script, or you may have to change the actor or actress during the shooting. Indeed, it happens very frequently that this type of problem occurs and that we sometimes have to rewrite a scene. The changes may be minor or major, depending on the case.

Screenplay and story

Claude Jalbert

You may be wondering what the difference is between the screenplay and the story of a movie. The screenplay is the body of dialogue and includes some descriptive elements. It is, in a way, the interpretation of the characters' adventure. It would be plausible to say that one page of a screenplay generally corresponds to one minute of shooting on screen. The story is the adventure and the plot to which the characters will be subjected! It can be told in the form of a summary or even a synopsis.

The Complex of God

Claude Jalbert

The Complex of God, our latest screenplay, will soon be available on our online store! Follow us to find out about the release date or visit our online store and learn a little more about us!

Four colourful characters evolve in rather dark contexts where cynicism dominates their view of the world. Their philosophy of life is both frightening and lucid. Behind their eyes are souls in search of truth, gentleness, light: in short, hope. It is in this short slice of life, chaotic and frighteningly gray, that you will discover beings who walk on a disastrous road. It is by observing them in their microcosm that you will undoubtedly discover a little humanity in them.

Face à moi Trilogy!

Claude Jalbert

You have been following our page for a while now, but do you know our novels well? Here is one of our trilogies, Face à moi, available in full version or in three novels.

Face à moi is a coming-of-age story unfolding in the eyes of a young man from generation X who refuses to grow old. Alternating between stories and diaries, Sam shares with us the compelling twists and turns of his quest for the adult persona he may already possess. A champion of humour and self-deprecation, Sam is more than a character; he is so familiar that we easily recognize ourselves in him. Our anti-hero provides touching reflections and definite laughs. The particular colour of his style makes him a "humorous oddity" who will please anyone who wants to escape into a unique and rich universe.

Quality of a screewriter

As you have probably noticed, screenwriting is a very structured process and can sometimes be a real headache! It is very important, when writing a project, to present the main character well. It is important to focus on the character's world and life experiences. In this initial presentation, the audience must be able to identify what the character lacks in his or her life or the challenges he or she must meet. This setup will often set the tone for the rest of the story, so that the viewer will want to know how the character will fare. The stronger this plot is, the more viewers will want to watch the film.

The Characters

Claude Jalbert

Have you ever wondered why some characters from novels brought to the big screen were portrayed as we imagined them when we read them? Well, it's largely due to the work of the screenwriter!

The screenwriter is the artist who imagines the stories, characters, and situations portrayed in film adaptations of other works. His role is to produce the script for an audiovisual project. He will an alternative narrative based on your novel, enriched with comments and directions that the production professionals will ultimately realize in their final adaptation of your masterpiece!
