Life in 2050 Film Treatment Workshop


Hosted by science fiction writers Philip Palmer and Tony Ballantyne alongside environmental scientist Jonathan Cowie and microbiologist Dr. Simon Park.

This workshop has a mission and needs your help! At SFL we want to see more low-budget, British, science fiction films made: films that look into the near future and challenge some of the decisions humanity is making today. Will there really be clones mining the surface of the Moon for Helium 3? Will the sea levels have risen so high that there are only a few survivors living in giant Arks?

Using the fantastic Hunterian Museum as inspiration and with the professional skills of a screenwriter and an author to assist you, try your hand at devising a plausible sci-fi movie idea, set in 2050. You could steer clear of bug-eyed aliens and focus on something closer to home. Whether it is Fantastic Journey, Coma or Moon in feel, make it feel real. By the end of the day, we want you to have worked out your basic drama and plot.

This is a FREE WORKSHOP scheduled to run from 10.00am until 4.00pm with an hour for a working lunch and coffee will be provided to keep you firing on all cylinders.
