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.
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.
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.
We will produce the soundtrack first and then build the scenes around the music. If you would like to contribute your skills let us know soon as we are eager to get a soundtrack together to shop around for producer support.
This Just In
Additionally, we have just recently decided to have about a 50/50 mix of digital characters and real human actors. The digital characters are being created in Blender
and other programs. If you have sculpting skills we need you on our team. Can you do cgi backgrounds? Can you rig characters for animation? We need your skills. We can work something out. It's guaranteed to be fun. And you can contribute from wherever you are on the planet.
is a tiny production company. We are putting together the basics in terms of equipment and supplies to begin shooting and to complete, edit and put out for distribution The Virtual Guy movie. We need insurance, money to pay for food and expenses for actors and crew
, software and fast computers and all of the things that go into creating an extremely frugal mixed film and animation 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 some gear and incidentals. Now we will implement a serious campaign for funding to push us into pre-production. As we do this we will also be creating a Film Making Collective of Seth Fans from the US, Europe and Asia. Each of us will contribute our time, skills and energy to the project. Payment will come in the future when we complete and distribute the film. If you would like to get involved phone me at (707) 278-7223 and we can talk.
