The Virtual Guy Film Project Now in Development
The Virtual Guy
is a SciFi Musical Comedy Film currently in development at Spacious Moment Productions
. We are in development, meaning, we are creating interest and looking for support in the world community for our project. We are developing relationships with gifted animators, film editors and sound people from all over the world. Spacious Moment is based almost exclusively on donations.
This is the story of action hero Guy Everman
, and Misha Yu
, his brilliant inventor girlfriend. Guy loses his brain, (I know, pretty common) but fortunately Misha has created an artificial brain
prototype. She installs it in Guy's head and programs it with the characteristics of the perfect boyfriend. Hilarity ensues.
The Virtual Guy explores the themes that Seth talks about in his books. The Human Virtues
, the ideas of Loving Understanding and Courage
and Intentional Reality Creation
, as well as what constitutes a healthy human relationship
are presented with humor. If you've read the Seth Returns books, you know that Seth talks a lot about simple humor - Good Humor
, he calls it - as being the foundation for the more profound states of consciousness.
Awakening Awakening Awakening
The Main Theme of the movie is Awakening
. We will analyze several important awakening scenarios currently operative in our modern culture including the Apocalypse, the Ascension, the Rapture, the Recovery Movement Spiritual Awakening and the Singularity
. The humor will not come from bullying and harshly negative criticism. The truth will be revealed with loving humor.
Cyber Cyber Cyber
The original idea for the movie came to me when I wrote some articles for a cyber-culture magazine called Mondo 2000
. (See Seth Returns Backstory
2nd Episode for more info) Back then l wrote satirical pieces, making fun of the cyberpunk and techie communities
. Now is a different era. These days we are all cyberpunks. We are all participants in the expanding cyberculture. So I thought it would be a good idea to write the screenplay and begin to look for actors, producers, interested folks, now that an audience exists for this material.
I wrote the script and immediately started looking for a Cast and Crew. I had thought that it would be difficult to get people on board who knew what they were doing. But I soon discovered that actors and crew are often very eager to get involved in a fun project, even if the money is not yet there. I received a great response from talented and experienced actors and film professionals
who wanted to participate. We will choose from this pool of candidates the best ones for the roles and crew positions according to their availability and what the budget will allow when we begin shooting.
What We Have
~ A funny full-length (90 Minute) movie script
~ 15 Original Funny Songs
~ Assorted props and sets
~ Nearby locations on which to film scenes
Growing The Virtual Guy Movie
We are forming a music publishing company
to publish all of the songs here at Seth Returns. We will record the songs right here in our little studio. It's beginning to look like my daughter Erin will sing at least a few of the female leads and I will sing some of the male leads. So this soundtrack is going to have a family feel to it.
For the remainder of 2019 we will be filming backgrounds and scenes that don't require actors. We will also continue to make props and confirm locations. When we have a budget in place for gear rental and expenses for the cast and crew, we will gather our people together and get to work. Principle photography for The Virtual Guy begins in the Spring of 2020
The Look and Feel of the Movie
We are creating a psychedelic, 50's-style Science Fiction Musical Comedy
. We will stress the anachronistic sense of living in the past and future simultaneously. The film will feature inexpensive but effective special effects, and a goofy, catchy soundtrack.
is a tiny production company. But we still need the basics in terms of equipment and supplies to begin shooting and to complete, edit and put out to distribution The Virtual Guy movie. We need insurance, money to pay for food and expenses for actors and crew
, and all of the things that go into creating an extremely frugal film production. Check out the Frugal Film Makers group on Facebook to get an idea of what I mean. Frugal Film Makers
Or this group Low Budget Films
We are grateful for the donations we received as a result of our Indiegogo Campaign. Those monies helped purchase a microphone, a green screen, some tripods and other incidentals. Now we need to implement a serious campaign for funding to push us into pre-production. Why should you donate to The Virtual Guy Film Project? Because we are creating a Film Making Collective of Seth Fans from the US, Europe and Asia. At this time, none of us are being paid for contributing time, skills and energy to this project. Payment will come in the future when we develop an operating budget. For now, we will make a movie out of loving appreciation for Seth and all he has done for humanity over 55 years of educating, coaching and enlightening us all.
When someone donates time or energy or money to the project, or when someone buys a piece of gear for us from our Amazon Wish List
, they automatically become a part of the movie in some capacity if they wish to participate. They may have their names or pseudonyms placed at the end of the film if desired. Big donors may appear in the movie, if they wish. We will make that happen for gear or money contributions of $500 or more. Obviously, if donors do not seek recognition, we will repect that. Everything will be kept completely anonymous. Also, if you want to act in the film in one of the written roles, we are still forming our cast. Drop us a line if you would like to participate in this capacity. We are open to negotiation.
Well we hope you will support us as we take The Seth Teaching to the world with our movie.
