Sci-Fi LIES is a factual entertainment series about two ‘future investigators’ who will take us to the brink of what’s possible and scientifically test the seemingly impossible to declare what is FUTURE TRUTH or SCI-FI LIES. This unique popular science series brings theoretical science to life in a humorous and entertaining way to test the underlying principles of science fiction’s greatest inventions.
Imagine a world where you can make yourself invisible at the drop of a hat, where you can teleport yourself through space and time, or explore parallel universes. It’s the stuff of science fiction, right? Well, we’re actually much closer than you think.
Our hosts are motivated by a quest for knowledge; guided by open minds, sound reasoning and the scientific method. Their ‘guru’ is Arthur C. Clarke, one of the world’s most renowned science-fiction authors, his 1968 novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, is still a classic today. But Clarke was also a ‘futurologist’, fascinated by profiling possible futures, including his accurate prediction of the communications satellite. Our hosts loosely base their investigations on Clarke’s Three Laws of Prediction:
1st Law: When a distinguished but elderly scientist stages that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2nd Law: The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3rd Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
This entertaining format and its creative use of emerging technologies engages the audience, allows them to discover new insights and be inspired, without being schooled.
The Lost Treasure of Zimram
The real life murder mystery of Zimram Youram – Australia’s First Indian.
Zimram Youram was a remarkable 18th Century adventurer who journeyed from the glittering Islamic palaces of Hyderabad, India to the menacing gaols of Dickensian England. Upon transportation as a convict, Zimram is the first known Indian national to set foot on Australian soil. Later, he became one of Tasmania’s most popular and wealthier free settlers before his untimely murder…
In 1848, near the small town of Norfolk Plains (Longford) in the remote island convict colony of Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania), an elderly Indian man lies brutally murdered on the floor of his home. How did he get here? Who killed him and why?
This dramatized, presenter-led feature film takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride that transports viewers through three corners of the British Empire of the 18th and 19th Centuries. The Lost Treasure of ZIMRAM pieces together the spellbinding life and times of Australia’s first Indian.
The film will explore Australia’s early colonial history through the fresh prism of Zimram’s little-known story. We know that Zimram Youram was born and raised a Muslim, but did he die as one? How did his Indian ethnicity and Islamic faith define his life? What pressures of assimilation where brought to bear on him? How does Zimram’s life and times echo through time and resonate with the lives of contemporary Australians, Indians, British and Muslims today?
In a world where the Indian diaspora is commonplace and life as a Muslim in the west is increasingly complex, how does Zimram’s story reflect the challenges and opportunities that face us today.
Born for greatness. Bred in captivity. Bound for freedom.
REPLICA| AURORA is a sci-fi thriller about a captive teenage genius who must escape her captor – the most powerful man alive – and save her best friend – a self-aware super-computer – the only entity alive that can challenge her oppressor’s totalitarian rule.
This feature film or telemovie feeds into the broader REPLICA story universe including the original television series REPLICA/ MARS.
REPLICA|MARS is a concept for a sci-fi television series about a desperate group of crash landed colonists, who must struggle to survive on alien soil or fall victim to its deadly secrets.
REPLICA|MARS is envisaged as an unravelling web of mysteries, revealed through interwoven storylines set in the Mars-based present (2099) and the Earth-based past (2099 and earlier). The back-stories covered constitute the Past storylines and will be revealed in flashbacks.
REPLICA|MARS is intended to be more than the concept for a television series, but the concept for an entire sci-fi universe. We intend the REPLICA Universe to be adaptable and franchisable, in the manner of the Star Trek, Stargate, Lost or Battlestar Galactica concepts.
Our intention is to attract financial and creative partners. We seek to continue the development of a commercially viable sci-fi property that will adapt to multiple media – television series, feature films and video games.
