few weeks back we spoke to you about a great project
Opera Society", which is a non-profit production
company formed to create new and original Sci-Fi programming
to be distributed on the web, and that you, the viewer,
would help influence. This company is made up of an
outstanding team of international professionals (writers,
actors, directors, make up artists, production designers,
model makers, VFX artists) who have worked on such
productions as Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Space:
1999, Stargate, X-files, Dune, Alien, Outland, Tron
and many more...
We Sci-Fi lovers, are more and more the victims of
short-sighted producers when it comes to the continuation
of our favourite series. These shows increasingly
never see a proper ending due to bad programming,
ratings and... the power of money! Of course these
points are important, but production companies treat
Sci-Fi as a business. Profit, that's their only concern
and the shows are only alive as long as they make
money and attract big ratings for their advertisers.
BUT if there's a possibility to change things, would
you take that chance? Well, Space
Opera Society is trying to affect change and they
need YOUR help to make the dream come true. If each
of us gave a
few dollars, we would be showing Hollywood that
we have had enough! Give those companies a signal
that we fans are tired of their lack of respect. A
show is canceled due to poor ratings? Fine. But at
least give us a chance to watch a proper ending, give
us the respect by producing the final episodes. We’ve
given them our time and faith, it’s only fair
to give us closure, in return. Respect the fans as
well as the creative teams that have put all their
energy in creating these shows!
Opera Society is NOT working like these companies.
It's a non-profit company focused on quality and you.
YOU decide if a show must continue.
The final episode of V ended with a frustrating cliffhanger...
that will never be resolved. With SOS, you'll never
get this frustration. They respect you because you
are the ones that makes these shows live and breathe.
You will be in control as investors.
Here, we have a great opportunity to make things
Don't wait, support them by making a donation (recommended):
Or support their new fundraising programme, sponsored
by FOX (The Crowd Funder Show): https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/cdqG2
SOS aspires to become THE virtual meeting place for
lovers of science fiction, and fans are being invited
to participate in the development of projects, to
freely discuss their passion in an environment of
respect, and of course to watch our productions.
By adopting financing though crowdfunding, and a
transparent business model, SOS will go where few
production companies have gone before. In this regard,
SOS is inspired by New York`s Metropolitan Opera,
as the MET Members (fans and opera lovers), and SOS
donors (fans and enthusiasts of traditional sci-fi
shows) know that their investment will be used for
the productions, and profits will be reinvested in
the development and production of new projects.
Amongst the people working or supporting the project,
you have people such Special FX wizards like Space
1999’s Martin Bower, Wes Sargent, (Stargate
SG-1, Atlantis, Universe), Eric Chu (Battlestar Galactica),
script-editors like Christopher Penefold (Space 1999),
writers like Steve Warnek (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine),
Greg Norris & Laura A. Van Vleet (Both from Star
Trek Voyager), actors such Kevin Sorbo (Hercules,
Andromeda), Armin Shimerman (Quark in Star Trek DS9),
Nick Tate (Space 1999)... and more!
