The Other Side of The Wall, A TV series
The wall is prison.
The other side can be many things: loved ones, old ways, new opportunities, social scorn, community support, loneliness, learning and temptation.
No matter what, life is harder on the other side.
The Other Side of the Wall is conceived as a character driven narrative about individual convicts going through the precarious transition from incarcerated life to freedom without bars. For each of our characters, getting on the other side of the wall is a unique story revealing as much about the individual as it does about the place he or she has crossed over to, the place he or she has returned to. The stories bear unvarnished witness of what it takes to survive as an ex-con in a world where the sentence may have been completed, but the price is still to be paid.
There is nothing common about the stories to be told. Each takes place in a different culture, in a different country with uncommon challenges. This gritty, hard-nose television series is produced by seasoned IQ producers from around the world who are invested in making outstanding content. It can only be accomplished because of the common trust and sustaining access shared with the various filmmakers.
Exquisite Corpse, an IQ collaborative short film
Exquisite Corpse is a short film produced by IQ filmmakers as a collaborative project. The concept comes from a game played by Surrealists, including André Breton, that exploits the mystique of accident. Each player would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal most of the text, and pass it on to the next writer. The technique got its name from a line which came up during the first time it was played: “Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau” (The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine)
30 filmmakers from around the globe made a film based on this same concept. It was created sequentially over a period of 300 days. Each director had to contribute a 30-second scene, having seen only the last 3 seconds of the previous piece.

Actimo: testing of software by IQ body
Eske Grunge is the CEO for the IT company ACTIMO. Eske has, with great success, created a very smart software that enables businesses to send videos to and from their mobile phones. Among other features, the system enables you to have an intelligent overview of who opened the film – and who actually saw the whole thing.
We are a start up company that actually went right into production and sales the moment we got our invention to work. Large companies here in Denmark are already in demand for our software, but we want to go global with our inventions. We quickly realized that what we need for that further step was a global test of our software from people who do not only understand new software – but people who already deliver top quality content and communication all over the world. People like IQ.
When Eske Grunge contacted IQ – production company owners from more than 15 countries started testing Actimos software. And soon the test results started coming in.
I was extremely happy when I read one of the first responses – from Costa Rica. Not only was IQ member Roberto Sanchez very satisfied with our software – he also offered his experience and knowledge of Central America. Now I really want to talk further with Mr. Sanchez.
Roberto Sanchez is CEO for 921 PRO:
I am always interested when I see new business possibilities – and testing a new software via IQ gives me the possibility of staying on edge. And yes, when I see a business possibility – I go for it.
Donna Hampton, CEO of CAPITOL Productions Sydney, Australia and President of IQ :
The Actimo software worked very well when tested, the video played-back had great picture and sound quality. IQ is happy to assist, to share the knowledge our collective group has and to assist like-minded global partners.
The Actimo software was tested in Canada, Australia, USA, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador, India, Switzerland, Chile, Argentina, Panama, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Poland, Hong Kong, England, France, South Africa and Kenya.
I am so very satisfied with this global test. The investment for doing it will come back tenfold. When my company Actimo reaches new levels with new inventions – I hope that IQ will, once again – give me that global touch through the organization’s strength in content combined with these guys also being independent film producers. My technical department loves this. And so does marketing. Thanks IQ.
