SCREENWRITING & FILM PRODUCTION

PHILOSOPHY

Built into the desire to imagine a different world is a need to construct it too. We IMAGINE... But out there, in bloodless organisations of film construction, are rules to be obeyed. WE REFUSE. So, we think, IMAGINE  and THINK IT THROUGH: how would it look, sound, feel, this thing we desire to IMAGINE and CONSTRUCT.

We TREAT these IMAGININGS to our best thought and WRITE THEM UP on this, our WEBSITE OF INTELLECTUAL INSURGENCY.

And, if you want to imagine OTHER films too, we hope you will help finance us to REWRITE, EDIT & REVISE them, enabling us to satisfy our MUTUAL need to CONSTRUCT  them.

With esteemed PRODUCERS, we plan, propose and CONTRACT, get the budget SHOOT and EDIT the film world we DESIRED to IMAGINE, and CONSTRUCT it DIFFERENTLY.

 

INSURGENCY FILMS

1

INSURGENCY FILMS has taken control of our screenwriting & filmmaking, to make the world different, to world-wide our audience - for their sake, all our sakes, control it with real and felt experiences along the way, growing and learning, developing and imagining:

INSURGENCY FILMS is screenwriting to control a better future, a film making future of exploration and communication of life's great and final things.

INSURGENCY FILMS wants it deep & philosophically hard, imaginative and experimental - to do that we've got to control 'it'.

'INSURGENCY' - 'Control' - the combination seems contradictory, but the best exploration is disciplined: don't forget film history - INSURGENCY  thinks and is the author of these radical, addictive, inflammatory, mesmerising films, because, like the great screenwriters, INSURGENCY  is self-mythologising to avoid the banal, dull and mediocre commercial blag - self-mythologising creates authorial identity which means creative control.

Author the ALIEN INSURGENCY now!

If you've got it you've got it - and the individual identity of the work will emerge - don't do it unless you have.

Definitely not just restorative 3 act structure

especially. not Hollywood cheap closure - narrative is nuclear more than that!

3

Remember the films you can't forget - want to make them with cohesion , not just personality but expressionism & northern vision - on land. Some things not asked yet - or even asked - films must deal with this life-shite

4 - senses

Show it bleed, hear it, smell it, touch it, taste it.

But not just literally - metonymy & synecdoche, dictionary no good - need metaphorical meanings. Complicate it: Mine the film mind

5

Dig the deconstruction

Clever clever - authors should work the sub text & visual vocab to make our audience, forge a market for ideas in a material world, make the audience radicalise thoughts that cut convention

Film needs to smell it - sense it - like charred flesh - the being is the seeing.

6

lifelong mission to cook future film. Tell the tale all in one - but not monologically!

To enter-tain - bust the brain - tear the traumas of earth terrain - world imagine! don't constrain

7

The 21st Common Era 'Earth' century - vote for cinematic space travel - no limits - for a new inter-subjective audience

we'll be judged ok - but by exposing ourselves to other, Alien excitement

8

know that they'll be excited too - an inside peak from our our extraterrestrial P.O.V. Sneaking out of experience of experiencing

Don't get a lot of that in homogeneity land - McFilm world.

9

Remember seers & dreamers witches & poets - cannot be understood - now. Write cinema that crosses the normality of argument &

dramatises oppositional waves.

10

Challenge consciousness chemicals cosmos crime, countering com modification, counter colonial criminology.

Cut through the blinding detail of the bloody obvious

11

Come with me on my own journey and see what I see on film

See another place, planet, time but now

Suffer the hubris, hovering hamartia

Burn your mind-screen intensity heart beaten to a magic reality on film

Push frames, threads and human-life forms to their  narrative limits

12

Experiments outside my skin:

films that touch your nerve,

film the fragile truth,

film the metaphorical realities,

film places others intuitions do not yet film.

Build the Intellectual Alien INSURGENCY!

 

So we hope INSURGENCY will see you this Earth year for a chat about stories, screenplays, science fiction and science fact, what I take to be the current metaphors, organising principles or controlling ideas at the heart of world wide debates about human-altering technologies of the past, present and future - these screenplays, writings, films - terraforming the newly grown cerebral cortex of the planet.

Our intellectual insurgency is ongoing.

It's a lifelong project, working title is Alien Semantics: metaphors  of   human consciousness and cosmology in science fiction and science fact.

I would like you all to help me by participating in the science fact side of it. I cannot think of many more robust or independent human minds than yours and as a model for brilliant thinking, I would like to contribute to your contribution to human achievement. I would like you to join my exploration and communication of life's great and final things.

All these screenplays are interested in SETI, the search for extra terrestrial intelligence. Whether it is likely or not in our lifetimes I think  our  writing now on/in the ethics of criminology, alientation, chemical dependancy, sexual orientation, cultural formations, genetic engineering sets out a methodology for approaching a totally new human experience. Possibly even an inhuman future experience,  and developing a communicative competence for expressing it. I think in between two or more schools still. I'm interested in being different and thinking differently, if it is possible.

To think of screenplays, films, computer games, novels, histories and scientific explanations as all somehow metaphors for our human consciousness and cosmology is to challenge our 'natural' thinking.  Our fears and prejudices, hopes and aspirations.

You, my friends have all inspired me in this head on thinking, in your own lives, challenging our  sense of fear and panic over 'other' ways of 'shopping', 'living', 'fighting' enjoying, being, and  technologies of reproduction. As it happens, if you know me, then I would say you have shown me the plasticity (positive and negative) of human life forms and the similarities with other silicon intelligences and given me hope.

I think similar thinking may be required to explore the 'story' element to the myths of our earthboundness and humanity found in science fiction and fact. And there may be a 'relativistic' understanding of human communication with other species on earth. And similarly a 'relativistic' appreciation of the otherness of thinking required to conceptualise alien consciousness.

If we write up our journey into Science Fiction and Science Fact, 'ideas'  of Alien Consciousness and Communication we might find or create a theoretical, even functional Alien Semantics and make CONTACT.

What a great story that would be.
