TTT Suggestion: The philosophers
« on: February 17, 2013, 02:48:52 AM »
Hi Paleopals,

As you wanted your trailers to have a science sort of bend this year I thought this was appropriate. OK, the title has philosophy in it, but that is not so far away. Plus: "what to do for the apocalypse" is a kind of recurring theme. ;D

that looks awesome! I wonder how they will decide when one gedankenexperiment is over and the next starts, and how they transition between them.  But thinking about it, if each student has their own kind of apocalypse, what just separates it from just being speculative fiction.  And if they all work together, then how is this really any different from all the tabletop RPG games that people play with similar scenarios?

I like that they were going to hide from the first apocalypse... in like. ankor wat.

i didn't like that they had to yell at each other. I think i'm kind of a wimp. I don't like movies where people yell at each other.

Doesn't that exclude a lot of movies?
