Subtext in Production

Writers ask us all the time, "Do you know anyone who has used Subtext in the development of a feature film or television series? Has anyone sold anything using Subtext?" And the answer to that question is a resounding "Yes."

Made with Subtext

  • October Faction - Netlifix series
  • Tangled: The Series - Disney animated television series
  • Ask No Questions - award-winning documentary on Chinese state-run media
  • Some of The Traitor's Blade series of novels from Sebastien de Castell
  • The Spellslinger series of novels from Sebastien de Castell
  • Callaloo - an animated feature film sold to Dreamworks

Currently in Development

Other projects currently in development using Subtext:

  • videogame series for an animation studio
  • an original RPG videogame from an independent developer
  • two book series from Avatar: The Last Airbender creator Mike DiMartino

Again, all of those are in the middle of production so we can’t say much about them--except that Subtext played an important part.

And yes--Subtext can be used to develop interactive entertainment as well as documentaries based on real-life events. Anytime a narrative is involved--anytime you're trying to engage an Audience in the telling of a story--Subtext can make a significant difference in your project.

Secret Projects We Don't Know About

Of course, these are only the films, television series, and novels we know about...once your feature film idea or novel series is sold please let us know so we can add you to the list!
