WAKING UP: An open source film about a positive resource based future
Waking Up is an open source movie about a positive future with a resource based economy, an abundant world and updated values and technology. We need more collaborators in writing, promoting and finishing this film.
Waking Up is about a former businessman, who chose cryogenic preservation of himself in 2010, in the hope that humanity once might be able to thaw him up and cure his disease some time in the future. And this is exactly what happens.
A hundred years later, around the year 2110, the world has gone through massive changes towards the positive. Both technology and human values has developed into a whole new world, positive in all aspects for humanity. One of the aspects is that money and property is gone, and people do things for other reasons than trading and hoarding wealth. Waking Up is about Ben’s experiences in this world and the difficulties he faces in waking up to this new reality. The film will show the new technology, design, architecture, values, social and economic system.
In the scene below, Ben is walking in the woods with his newly acquainted guide, Aweena. He has only been awake for a few days, after several weeks of curing and restituting his body while he was asleep. He is a bit confused, and can’t really understand what has happened. He feels somewhat attracted to this new world and to Aweena, but at the same time he has trouble believing it is real.
The scene is a ‘demo scene’, showing the concept of the film, and is not meant to be as it is in the finished movie. The scene was also a submission to the Cinema Out of Your Backpack festival where it got the 'official selection'.
If you are a producer or experienced in the international film industry, consider applying for a position in the core team. When the story and the script is done, we will focus all our efforts on getting this movie filmed professionally and marketed globally to present a viable positive alternative future for humanity.
