Esther Inglis-Arkell:  "Worldbuilding is a major challenge for science fiction creators -- building a plausible world from scratch involves thinking about lots of variables. But sometimes, to imagine the future, the best way is to look to the past. Classic literature can help you build a world more believably alien than anything you've yet imagined."

Focused reading of exemplars (master works) will improve writing.

"The science fiction classic is 20 years old. Lisa Granshaw reports on the franchise's growth and fanbase, and the buzz--and mixed feelings--surrounding its forthcoming big-screen reboot."

Camila Lorena Longo's curator insight, September 1, 2014 1:26 PM

There’s more than one reason why Stargate succeeded in keeping and growing a loyal following. Actor David Hewlett who portrayed Dr. Rodney McKay in the TV series believes one of them is timing. The Internet was growing around the time ofSG-1, giving fans a way to share their passion and spread the word.

This is an unusual one. But I really enjoy reading the works of H.G. Wells and upon viewing this, I felt it kept to the quality of that author.

 

Enjoy.

A Solitary World — a breathtaking homage to H.G. Wells, with text adapted from five of his most celebrated works: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914). Read by Terry Burns and featuring an appropriately haunting score from the young British composer Lennert Busch, the film belongs to — pioneers, perhaps — an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem.

Roger Ellman's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:27 AM

OK. So is this Progress?  Are Humans Moving Forward?

Well - art, creativity and idea-innovation are all part of that. So in the loose and all-embracing way we love, the sanswer is yes!
