About the Rupturian Script http://www.rupturian.com/Script.html
Rupturian is a Sci-Fi concept that allows for the creation of a franchise that includes movies and TV miniseries, books and e-books, video-games, and toys. The required initial investment / loan is $6 M for the production of the first movie of a trilogy; out of the $6M, $500,000.00 will be used to market its distribution. We are expecting to receive back from the State of New York, $1.5 M as an incentive to promote the movie industry. The franchise potential revenue in 5 to 6 years is over $100 M. How is it possible to produce the first movie of the trilogy with $6 M? Please see About the Rupturian Budget in http://www.rupturian.com
In the old Greece, during the golden times of Aristotle, Socrates and Plato, the latter used to present his philosophical concepts via dialogues… well, I am going to do the same.
I am going to make an interview to myself as a way to explain the differences between the movie Rupturian –Extinction on Earth” and the novel “Last Call from Earth –Stage I, Biological Survival”, both of them created under the Rupturian concept. Doing this I’ll cover the subject of this blog “About the Rupturian script”.
The novel versus the movie
Under the Rupturian concepts, I wrote the first novel of the trilogy “Last call from Earth”, which deals with the biological survival of the Human race before a major catastrophic event.
Q. I understand you prepared a script for Rupturian –Extinction on Earth. How different is it from the novel Last call from Earth?
A. The script contains the same basic elements and concepts, but presented and developed in a different way, and in a different order. That’s the beauty of the Rupturian concept; that is, several stories may be written about it.
Q. Could you give an example of a different way?
A. The basic event in the story is that humanity faces imminent extinction. In the book that is caused by a collision against our universe of another universe; due to the collision there is a rupture through which strings escape (strings are the basic components of everything that exist in our universe), and consequently, our atmosphere is affected…. This is a concept very difficult to communicate and develop in a movie. The script was changed so that now what we have is a supernova; that is, a major explosion (or implosion) of a star. In the history of our planet, 440 million years ago, a supernova almost finished life on Earth. A supernova makes the script more realistic.
Q. And also more graphical and dramatic; I can see that. Do you still make it happen on December 21, 2012?
A. No. It happens in the immediate future, but not a specific date. This makes the story more permanent.
Q. Could you give an example of a change in the order of the story?
A. In the book, the story starts in the XXIII century, 280 years from now, and we look back to what has happened up until that moment; in the movie, the story starts at the present time and moves forward.
In the book, the people in the colonies that we establish in other planets get sick with CRDS (Circadian Rhythm Degeneration Syndrome). The disease is caused by a disruption in the normal functioning of the DNA, caused by not teleporting microorganisms that the human body needs to be normal.
In the movie, the people that would remain on Earth after the supernova are the ones that would get sick with CRDS. While the radiation of an atomic bomb affects living organisms immediately, the radiation from a supernova affects the DNA resulting in cancer, dementia, and physical malformations. With this change, the script becomes more realistic… but in the end, during the last minutes of the movie, that doesn’t happen because we are saved using advanced Rupturian technology to create a gas cloud diffuser that filters out the life damaging particles of a supernova.
Q. The overall concept of the Rupturians remains the same?
A. Yes. That’s a key concept. Without the advanced Rupturian technology and their vision of reality the Rupturian stories don’t exist.
Q. Looking at things in perspective, how do you see the novel versus the movie?
A. I would say the novel is the classic version, the way I thought about it for the first time, without putting any constraints to my imagination. And the script is the result of many, many revisions of all sorts to make it more realistic; it is the result of a team effort. The final script is the result of several revisions made by a team of professional writers that include Brad Schreiber, Peter Mellencamp (STAR TREK) , Paul Young (THE LORD OF THE RINGS) and Paul Guay.
Q. Which one do you prefer?
A. Both; the first one for sentimental reasons. I still remember when I thought about it for the first time. I was in New York in a very cold winter, the boiler was broken, and I had to wear my coat in bed in order to sleep. I had just read a couple of books about the fabric of the universe and the strings theory, in my mind I created a minor big bang explosion and the Last Call from Earth started to exist. In practical terms I prefer the script, since it is the result of thinking and rethinking the same concepts, by several people, over and over again, until the story became simpler, more realistic, and with emphasis in the most important aspects.
Q. Still thinking about a trilogy?
A. Yes, but in Rupturian the story is different.
In Rupturian I, we are going to be hit by a supernova that will finish life on Earth, but we are saved using the advanced technology of the Rupturians.
In Rupturian II, with the advanced technology of the Ruprurians we start to explore vast areas of the universe, but with such an advanced technology we come close to destroying ourselves, like the Rupturians did.
In Rupturian III, via recordings in the Rupturian Intergalactic Network (RIN), we will see how and why the Rupturians annihilated themselves; all of them committed a collective suicide, destroying even their planets… Only one Rupturian remained, because he was travelling in a parallel dimension, and he is the one that appears in the first movie of the trilogy.
And then, if we get pictures from the new James Web Telescope, currently in construction, we will have a fourth movie: “The Birth of the Universe” where we will see how our universe started in the Big Bang, we will discover the origin of life, and we will do soul transplantation from one body to another.
Q. Sounds really interesting, unique, realistic and educational. I can see you have created a whole world in your mind. I can also see that you still have soul transplantation from one body to another…
A. Yes, but not until the fourth movie. In the first one what I have is “teleportation”
Q. Why is that better?
A. Soul transplantation into another body has religious connotations; one of the most critical issues being: What happens to the soul that was in the recipient body before? The concept of teleportation, on the other hand, is normally accepted without moral, ethical or religious concerns. So I rather leave Soul transplantation to the very end.
