At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉
The other day on my way into work, one morning radio program had found a bit of news that they were making fun of. Apparently, there's a View-Master movie in the works. And they just found that hilarious.
The question they posed to one of the guys on the air was: How could they possibly make a movie about a View-Master?
And off the top of my head, I came up with two different ideas. (One could be a Twilight Zone episode, and the other is more of a bio-pic.)
If I can come up with a couple ideas...
What if your story had to start (somehow) with or contain a View-Master? (And hey, it sounds like no one is attached to this project, yet, so you might consider pitching your idea to the studio.)
