Exploration of Social Issues: Sci-fi films often use futuristic or alternate settings to explore and comment on contemporary social issues. These can include politics, environmentalism, ethics, discrimination, or the consequences of technological advancements.
Scientific Concepts: Science fiction often incorporates scientific principles or speculative theories. It can involve scientific advancements, genetic engineering, cloning, quantum mechanics, or the exploration of new scientific frontiers.
Themes of Humanity: Sci-fi often explores what it means to be human, the limits of human potential, or the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence. It can delve into existential questions, identity, morality, or the nature of consciousness.
This is my first-ever stab at creating a film in this genre and by incorporating these elements into the science fiction screenplay, I aim to create a compelling story that would engage the audience's imagination and leaves them wanting more.
