Star Drunk is a short sci-fi film that has been both written and acted by drunk people. Directed by Chris R. Wilson and Zach Persson, the movie is quite a mashup of Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and copious amounts of liquor. Hit ahead for the movie and another “behind the scenes” video for the movie. It isn’t easy to act drunk.
“Epic” is not a word we throw around often, but it’s one that simply falls when we see the work and renderings of Vil Tsimenzin (Simon Williamson). The renderings are so well done that you can’t help loving the execution. What we are looking at here, is the science fiction series where the designer envisions a series of objects, gadgets and accessories for the future. The set includes gear, an intergalactic probe, and a very Matrix-like helmet.
This set of posters by Society6 user mitchell87 presents classic sci-fi novels in a lovely illustrated form. War of the Worlds is kind of the king here, though we must add that The Midwich Cuckoos look suitably creepy.
About a year ago, redditor thefrek made an unofficial flag for Earth. He recently reappeared with more flags for the entire solar system, for the future Martian revolution, and for the Solar Federation that might happen into the future. A fun sci-fi story could be constructed around these flags. They are available for purchase here.
