I like how this movie is going to be about real science. Do you think science could get this country out of the slump it's in?
Thanks! I absolutely do! There are so many great science programs that don't get the funding, and once the few that do, the next administration cuts them off before any results can be seen in the economy. Science is not only great for an economy, it is great for Mankind! We must keep moving forward! We must evolve! We must spread out among the planets. We must protect this Earth from the extinction causing asteroid that will one day come.
I always thought it was cheesy how in most sci fi the aliens basically are humanoid, with a head, arms and legs. Do you think aliens would really be shaped like humans?
I do only in the sense that they would want to create a look that wouldn't frighten us. Those that don't care about us certainly will look more like bacteria or jellyfish. I imagine any alien contact with us will be through their biomechanical avatars and robots, though their robots will probably seem very lifelike, even appear sentient and autonomous.
My biggest pet peeve in sci fi is when a movie is supposed to take place in the future and there is music I heard in high school on the soundtrack! What kind of score are you going to have for Nebula?
Lol, yes! There is hopefully one song from the 1970's that will be the closing credit song, but I seriously doubt we are getting the rights. It was only going to be used as a punchline. I believe some of our crappiest music will be considered classics in the future, lol.
I want an electronic score very much like "Forbidden Planet" and the work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. However, I want it to be organic, if that makes any sense.
How far into the future is this film set?
Well, it is very far, and it spans millions of years. The main characters sleep for 1000s of years, wake up, do maintenance jobs, then sleep another 1000 years. Humans evolve, and devolve, and these sleep workers stay the same and are in constant danger of being replaced by the latest human form. They have to fight to stay relevant.
Can donating a dollar to a crowd funding campaign really help?
We're looking for $78,000, so if we get 78,000 people backing us with one dollar each, lol... That will help!
I'm very excited by the contributors we now have being true genre fans and even big names in the field of special effects and science fiction. That seal of approval by people that create in the field of science fiction, science, NASA, Space X, and Astronomy feels so unimaginable!!! It makes me feel there is an audience of people like me whose pet peeves are sounds in space, lol
Thanks so much! I am looking forward to this film!!
Thank you so much for having here with your MORMO readers!
