The H Collective brings more to marvel at with Chinese book adaptation

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Isn't it about time filmmakers supplemented the public's Superhero Diet? While DC Comics and the Marvel Universe has given us lots of creatures and critters to, well, marvel at, The H Collective has plans to adapt a Chinese classic novel with a mythic variety of creatures to stand apart from the usual cape and tights fare. Read on...

From Screenmancer in LA...

LOS ANGELES, CA: The H Collective (THC) will adapt the Chinese classic text and compilation of mythic geography and beasts The Classic of Mountains and Seas into an epic feature, creating an entirely new Universe. Kent Huang, the Chairman of the company and Mark Rau, European Chief will supervise the production. THC recently partnered with the MOVE Network, the world’s leading NFT Platform, and will look to create NFT products utilizing film stills, scripts, posters, and a series of collectible artworks around The Classic of Mountains and Seas as well as other projects and IP from THC.

The Classic of Mountains and Seas, also known as Shan Hai Jing, is largely a fabulous geographical and cultural account of pre-Qin China as well as a collection of Chinese mythology. The book recorded over 40 countries, 550 mountains and 300 waterways along with the geographic and cultural information of the nearby realms. Some of the creatures were also appeared in Warner Bros. fantasy movie franchise, Fantastic Beasts.

The H Collective’s European Chief. Mark Rau said: “We look forward to developing “The Classic of Mountains and Seas” and working with MOVE Network to pursue the greater value of blockchain technology together by incorporating them into the entertainment landscape. New technologies are bringing new opportunities. So we are very looking forward to being part of the changing process of financing and developing Intellectual-Properties. By the amazing new partnership with MOVE Network, we are now able to roll out globally NFTs based on our successful Entertainment IPs.” 

The Classic of Mountains and Seas will follow a group of kids who accidentally fall into a parallel world encountering exotic creatures and people. On their journey to find their way back, they learn the importance of friendship.  

THC and MOVE are also looking to build a ticketing system with NFT to secure the box office, providing an alternative way for investors to recoup at an early stage. THC is currently in development on Academy Award Nominated Uli Edel’s Shadow Song, which is based on the 2017 Award-Winning short, A Children’s Song, which the company also produced; as well as The Vineyard, a coming-of-age film penned by Tory Kamen which Mark Steven Johnson will direct.  The H Collective previously produced the Aaron Paul starrer The Parts You Lose from Oscar Winning producer Mark Johnson and Brightburn with Elizabeth Banks and from producer James Gunn.

MOVE Network is part of a larger technology group, Aladdin Technology Holdings, who are specialist in blockchain, fintech platforms and emerging platform technology. Aladdin headquarters are in Hong Kong with offices in Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, London, San Francisco and Toronto and aim at helping multinational companies and IP owners have access to emerging technologies to operate their blockchain business.

Launched in 2017, with offices in Los Angeles, Berlin, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo, The H Collective is a global film finance, production, marketing and distribution company behind a diversified slate of high-quality films with strong Franchise IP potential.
