In the third week of the Mastering Movie Genre Foundation Certificate tutor Ian Long visits Sci-fi.
Science fiction is a sprawling mega-genre which continues to galvanise cinema. Many of the most successful contemporary films are some variant of SF. But these stories don’t have to be cripplingly expensive! Contrary to general belief, there’s a great tradition of low-budget science fiction, which thrives on great ideas.
This workshop will show you how to make sense of a genre which includes so many and varied strands – post-apocalyptic stories, tales of robots and aliens, time-travel, smart drugs, etc – and suggest where you can find the novel ideas which are its stock-in-trade, and which will challenge and entertain audiences.
