Entertainment Experience was a film-project and competition in which two films were created:
- One "user-generated film" made by "The crowd" (contesting teams of newbie/amateur film-makers) .
- and one professional film made by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven (in the Netherlands version).
The process of making the film was shown in TV, on the Dutch TV channel Veronica.
The film script consisted of eight parts. Part one was written by Kim van Kooten. "The crowd" (participators of the competition) wrote the scripts for the seven following parts. Each of the participating film crews made a single short film, corresponding to their part of the film, while Verhoeven filmed all the scripts for his version.
The project was launched on September 21, 2011 and finished at the end of 2012.
Paul Verhoeven announced the name of the movie on 7 May 2012 on the television show De Wereld Draait Door. The international title of the movie is Tricked. (The Dutch title is Steekspel). It was suggested by the participant Trudi van der Stelt AKA 'Trudiola'.
On 24 September 2012, the movie premiered in the Tuschinski Theater in Amsterdam. Both the version by Verhoeven and the version that the contesting teams made together were shown.
On 28 March 2013, Tricked had its public release in EYE.
In March 2013, Lotgenoten (Counterparts), the version of the winning team "IO Filmproducties" (of Stephan Brenninkmeijer), was picked up by Benelux Film Distributors for nationwide release on dvd and video on demand.
