Remember Waking Up? The open source movie about a positive future with a resource based sharing economy? Well, first draft is finished. Harald Sandø (yours truly) has spent the last year writing the script based on a story the Waking Up community approved. I am not going to reveal the story here, but can give you a teaser:
“When Ben, a wealthy investor, comes down with a terminal cancer in the year 2014, he undergoes cryogenesis to preserve his body until a cure can be found. 100 years later, he wakes up to the shock of a lifetime: money and capital are gone, all goods and services are freely shared, and everyone now works to protect and preserve the planet rather than destroy it. Is this the so-called communist future he had always feared would come to fruition? Or is this world a new paradise? But as utopian as this world seems, it still has its share of problems. Ben is about to find out exactly what those problems are–and whom.”
As far as I know, this is the first attempt of a science fiction movie about a positive future. The whole script is also online as an open source initiative. You are invited to read it and take part in the further development of the first draft of the screenplay.
