About

What I want to do is different.  Bold.  Has not been done before.

I want to tell a story about the future of the human race 50,000 years from today.  It is called "The Myth of Gaia".  Gaia is the name of our planet Earth.  it comes from the Greek Geo, that's where we get words like geology and geography.  So Gaia is Earth.  After 50,000 years, humanity became so advanced living in planets orbiting other stars, and lost their real history and roots.  There was a myth that they really came from a planet called Gaia.  A historian and his daughter are set on an incredible adventure to find out the truth about their real origins. The truth was shocking and riveting.  It's a story that will raise goose bumps all over your skin.

I have written the first 4 chapters, but the entire plot and script and outline is all done. Reviews by friends and relatives are very encouraging, and humbling, to say the least.  

In 50,000 years, Life of Humanity will be Beyond Our Imagination
In 50,000 years, Life of Humanity will be Beyond Our Imagination

I am a scientist and passionate about science.  Real science, not fantasy, not magic.  My story has no shooting, killing, no magic or fantasy.  Every single incident is based on real science.  Real science is much more exciting and "magical" than any fantasy.

The story has conflict, for sure, but I focus on the science part, which is exciting enough, and I don't include killing and shooting and wars in space.  There is enough of that from Hollywood.

I have elements of mystery, discovery, history, psychology, puzzle solving, daring, heroism, technology, fear, courage, ambition, anxiety, romance, deception, loyalty, adventure, and a look back on our roots and how what we do today can have everlasting influence on what happens to us in the future, even 2000 generations from today.

I can't afford a real movie production.  So I came up with this great idea.  I will hire student animators, artists, and buy stock music and high quality stock images, and I will tell the story myself, sitting on a chair right in front of every single image and animation. I have attached this video so you can understand what I mean. I have uploaded a trailer for my Myth of Gaia videobook/movie, so please try to watch it.  It's only 5 minutes.

I will also produce the entire story in PDF comic format to send to all my backers free of charge by email.  Every backer of $50 or more will get the DVD of the whole story free of charge, plus shipping.

Risks and challenges

I do it all myself. The only risk is if I become ill for some mysterious reason. I take a health check every six months, the last one taken was 3 months ago and I was given an outstanding bill of good health by the doctors.

I will do the filming myself in my own home studio, as I have already done a demo sample in the attached video for you to see.

I will purchase animations, music, images from getty images, shutterstock, iStock, National Geographic. If I can't find the right image, I plan to hire art students to draw the right graphic for me, preferably using the computer.

There is a risk of the computer breaking down, so I will purchase two computers to do the work. I will also purchase backup on Dropbox and Google to back up all of the data to ensure there will not be any loss of any of the work done.

I am dedicating the rest of my life to creating innovative REAL science fiction stories in this unique format, telling the story myself with the images and animations right behind me on the screen while I sit on a chair and talk.

I have 9 such amazing stories, and The Myth of Gaia is the first one. All others are written, I am only starting with The Myth of Gaia.
