It's not so much a science fiction film. It's more of a horror film.
I just learned something good and useful from Casey Faris. Thank you. Every lesson regardless of subject and opinion should be structured like Shut Up And Play, guitar tutorials. Get straight to the demo and performance. No intros, or theme music, or zany visual trademark gags...until the explanation starts later on. Everybody is searching for knowledge and inspiration, but frustration is always just beneath the surface, hence the angry critiques. This guy knocks the ball straight at you. He's good, he's precise, and he asks for donations...at the end. If his creations don't help you, then no hard feelings. Most of his viewers stay, benefit, and come back for more.
If it's just about the story, then save the $billions$ and circulate it on a paper flyer. It has to be in our experiences, and in the air to be on the screen. The teller of the story is the key.
