The Man from Earth looks like my kind of movie. It's shot entirely in a living room and revolves around a man who reveals to his colleagues that he has lived on Earth for the past 14,000 years. The rest of the movie is about how his colleagues try and disprove his confession via a question and answer session.
Apparently it's very cleverly done and has a twist at the end. I just ordered the movie and will follow up with another blog entry once I've watched it.
I just watched a lovely science fiction movie called The Last Mimzy. It's set in the present, and starts when a couple of children find a strange object on the beach. When they open it up, they find some rocks, a crystal, and a stuffed rabbit. As the movie progresses, the purpose of the various objects is revealed. Needless to say, the rabbit is no ordinary rabbit. I highly recommend this movie.
This blog post made a nice mention of Destiny, calling it "the science fiction movie yet to made".
If you are a futurist who loves to think about where is science and the rest of humanity going, this movie will help you ride your imaginations. This yet to be made science epic called "Destiny" is an imagination of Graham Glass, a futurist himslef. Its a journey that will take you through a virtually real imagination in the next 200 years. The movie has a total mix of love, romance, fiction and a lot of twist.
Postcards from the Future is an indie movie that tells the story of lunar adventure in a novel way; as a series of video postcards. The trailer looks really good. I would love see my own Destiny video turned into an indie movie!
Here's the next version of Destiny, my science-fiction movie about the future of humanity. This version has voice-over and background music for all 22 scenes, so it's essentially complete:
I'll make some additional tweaks based on feedback, then add it to the https://destiny-movie.com site and start promoting it. One issue I found is that YouTube limits videos to 10 minutes long, and Destiny is 17 minutes long. So either I need to figure out a way to trim the length by 40% or stick with hosting it on MS SoapBox. Any opinions?
Destiny is a science fiction story about the future of humanity. It's an epic, similar in breadth and scope to 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you like what you see, please leave a comment on my blog and Digg it.
The next step is to create a YouTube video based on the Destiny graphics, with a voiceover and soundtrack. I'm looking forward to creating the video, and am considering writing the soundtrack if time permits.
