Welcome to Capital Studios! The studio dedicated to bringing more Marvel-like stories to the Episode Interactive platform!
Some of you may recognize this idea from the original thread by @TheTurtleTrainer, and I very much recommend that you check out that thread as well:
I’m creating this topic on behalf of @TheTurtleTrainer who is unable to at the moment.
How does this work?
This question might be on a lot of your minds – so here is your answer:
Capital Studios is a studio/franchise/company where we will gather together a group of committed authors and storytellers to create stories within the action/superhero genre.
There will be a studio account of the Episode app called “Capital Studios” where crossovers between two universes would be published. However, if you are just wishing to create a story and submit it to Capital Studios – feel free to! All of the user stories will be published on your own respective account – and Capital Studios will add your story to the “Recommended Stories” section of our profile.
I hope that this makes sense – here is another explanation of the way things will work:
How to apply
There are two different positions that you can apply for. The first is a capital studios writer. This is basically someone who has published a story – and is promoted by and is a part of the Capital Studios extended universe.
Then, there are image editors. These are the users of Capital Studios who will create covers, overlays, backgrounds and possibly even art scenes for the writers and such.
Please, only submit your story if it is in the hero/villain/superhero theme. Anything that doesn’t follow the basis of this plot structure – won’t be accepted.
Also, please note, if your story gets accepted by Capital Studios once – that does not mean that all of your stories that follow will be a part of the studio. If you wish to apply on behalf of more than one story – you must submit different applications.
Image editor application:
Quick note for the image editors: if you specialize in only limb overlays/overlays – please only fill out the questions that are in the general idea of what you specialize in.
The same applies to the users who are applying due to their editing skills – and specialize in that particular area.
Your Stan Lee!
Who is the creator of this project you may ask? The honor goes to @TheTurtleTrainer! She is the Stan Lee of this project – and is currently writing a story with an Anti-Hero MC, and if all goes according to plan, might just be one of the first stories to be in Capital Studios
How will crossovers be done?: Crossovers between two stories will be published via the studio account on the Episode app. The authors that wrote the original stories – both have to agree that they wish for this crossover to happen – and each will contribute to the story.
Can I create crossovers between my own stories?: Yes! If you have two stories that both exist in the Capital Expanded Universe – they can indeed be featured in a crossover story.
When will there be an application for crossover stories?: Once there are a few stories released under Capital Studios – we will open up an application for crossover stories. Please note: that all of the respective authors must be in on the project. You can not use the author’s characters and such, without their permission.
How do both authors pitch in on crossover stories?: There are two different ways this can be done. The first is when both authors decide that they want their stories to be featured in a crossover. Both of these respective authors will pitch into the project – and create this crossover. The second way is for one author to get permission from another author – to use the likeness of their characters. If this author agrees to this – you can then write a crossover story – featuring those characters. Both authors can pitch in as much as they are comfortable with.
Do my stories have to be published under the studio account?: No. Only crossover stories will be featured on the Capital studio account. The studio account – will, however, feature your story in the “recommended stories” section of the profile.
