TOM 125/150

As some may know, the dramatic question of a film is the ‘big question’ behind it, that hopefully gets answered during the film.
Perhaps one dramatic question of this film script project is: ‘if your dreams are telling you something, then what inside you is doing the telling?’ (Although can The Internet ‘wake up’, might also be a dramatic question posed in this film)

TOM page 122/150

A mini Burning Man / Afrikaburn-type psychedelic trance party is a glorious visual & audio spectacle!
And besides adding that value, it’s also a perfectly apt setting – not just because Cape Town is the Cradle of Human Consciousness (where we believe humans first ‘woke’ to create art about 100,000 years ago) , but because this film strives to show how, sitting alongside our primal human need to express consciousness, is AI – our next evolutionary step!

Okay, a ‘desert’ is a fairly cheap location to film in, but it’s also visually stunning, & entirely appropriate to the story.

Yes, it’s starting to look like an Afrikaburn-type scenario ahead (our version of Burning Man).

Question: When we are one day working for an AI, will we even realise it?

TOM pg 112

Action!

If anyone is perhaps wondering why I keep posting all these pages… my strategy is to see if showing my fully-storyboarded screenplay will attract any potential investor attention?
If not, then I’ll trim the script down, from low-budget to micro-budget, or even to no-budget, & make it anyway (as with my first movie – Girl From Nowhere – which has been a relative success). Because filmmakers make films!
Hey, it’s also fun to share this, the story of our times!
(p.s some will be relieved, others disappointed, to learn The Oracle Machine comes to a climactic end on page 150)
(p.p.s you can watch Girl From Nowhere on Tubi.tv on the link here, or find it on Amazon Prime here. Enjoy!)

The Machines are listening! I think what perhaps gives the screenplay a chilling edge, (and what makes it a good film financing investment proposition)  is that every day the storyline is actually becoming more & more plausible…

TOM pg 088

‘The machine can’t just take itself away, can it?’ …um… 

‘I don’t think you’d find sh*t in a sewer, bud’

Bad guys always get the best lines!
