wow… it’s a bit cloudy in beverly hills… but this shot is amazing.
Going to be writing a plot outline for my writing class based on the mythical land of Agartha, a hidden civilization thought to exist beneath earth’s surface. It will be set at a foggy, snowy ski resort on top of a dormant volcano that is thought to be full of tourists but in actuality it was abandoned due to strange rituals that took place there. The story centers around a family and a middle school kid named Philip, who doesn’t want to go on vacation but his parents insist that they go check out this new resort that was advertised as being “build” a few weeks ago. When they get there, everything looks ok, until Philip begins to notice the strange behavior of the guests there. An earthquake shakes the mountain side one night, revealing part of the rocky cliff beneath. After this strange occurrence, people begin to become sick with an unknown virus that causes them to sometimes speak in an unknown tongue, have unquenchable thirsts for water, and become bipolar or unresponsive. Slowly everyone in the resort seems to take part in strange religious ritual get-togethers and Philip begins to become increasingly paranoid once he is involved in them just to satisfy his parents. Basically, it’s a story about a kid being thrown into adult responsibilities too soon and must make decisions that could put the world or himself at jeopardy, pushing his inner fears aside to help those he trust.
While i do enjoy watching sci-fi films, seeing so many that have to do with the dystopian trope every week is kinda overwhelming after a while. I mean, i love seeing the ideas and philosophies being played out in these movies but i just don’t want to constantly be put through the films that are sure to rip my heart out, like “Children of Men”. I enjoyed watching it for the art direction, music, and choreography but other than that i just felt so down afterwards. Where’s a positive science fiction film when you need it. ;-;
