Hi, I’m Marty Shea, co-creator of “A BILLION TO ONE” a dramatic web series, written & directed by filmmakers around the world, and set in over 25 countries. It debuted this week and is the third major project from CollabFeature, an award-winning global filmmaking collaboration, that I co-founded.
The idea behind CollabFeature is to unite talented creators to create bigger, more competitive films and series than we could make on our own, by pooling our resources, creativity and audiences. “A BILLION TO ONE” is our latest example of this. It cuts between multiple storylines around the world, following characters who are all being considered by a dying billionaire to be his heir, allowing for a diversity of stories, voices and cultures.
Besides running ColalbFeature, I’ve been working in the film industry as a producer, production manager, director and other positions for 17 years. I’ve worked for HBO, Paramount, Universal, General Motors, Budweiser Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, and many others, but my heart has always been in independent filmmaking. I’m here to talk about A BILLION TO ONE, CollabFeature, and how we believe uniting with other filmmakers is much better than going it alone and competing with each other.
So… any questions?
