Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho (“The Alchemist”) is letting Net users submit their interpretations of his own work, “The Witch of Portobello”, through MySpace says Variety.
The book is divided into 15 narrators who interact with and interpret the lead character Athena, and Coelho has invited filmmakers from across the world to submit their interpretations of each of these narratives to his MySpace account.
Musicians are also invited to submit a general theme for the movie or themes for specific narrators. An editor will then weave submissions into a 52-minute TV movie dubbed “The Experimental Witch”.
Submissions must be delivered by July 25 and an independent jury will determine winners with results revealed on August 24th.
