Ridley Scott / Science Channel
Having worked with Prologue before on Through the Wormhole, the Science Channel asked us to work on marketing for their latest television series, Prophets of Science Fiction. We shot Ridley sitting at a table writing in a notebook, as he writes, magical animated outlines of futuristic buildings and schematics begin to rise up from the table’s surface. Scott explains that the prophetic writings and futuristic visions of the world’s great science fiction authors are now becoming a reality, as the frame becomes enveloped by the pre-visualizations that illustrate this fact. These illustrations depict grand images of robot armies, attacking alien ships, and flying commercial vehicles, as well as the names of the scientists and authors who were among the first to conceive ideas such as time travel and virtual reality.
