I’m thinking maybe this could be workshopped into a futuristic action style movie that portrays sea-steading in a positive light as per the short story.
If you’re interested check it out at the above link for $10USD. I’ve contacted a few movie producers to discuss the project and I’m also very interested in selling the rights to the story and perhaps developing it, as a means to promote the institute’s work within a popular culture context.
I can picture if the movie were made, a DVD extra could be added that shows some filmed interviews wih the institute’s key people, demonstrating the modular design of what you’re trying to achieve to promote your work and the movement more broadly.
Definitely check it out and get in touch with me if you know anyone in the movie biz! Allcomers welcome!
