What if TYT were to somehow organize or host a Hunger Games style tournament? Influencing the game in real time could some amount of money. It could be a way to have rich people compete for fame and influence, and the profits can go toward progressive causes.
I am not sure what that is exactly. I like the idea of a competitive environment for investing in new projects.
I think writers have an outsized influence from now moving forward. Your ability to collaborate with others creating story and art is the new frontier. I encourage progressives to pursue this direction.
It’s a concept. We get to build it.
This is an unrelated subject, right? Writing isn’t what a tournament is about. Another thread might suit your idea better.
No I am talking about Hollywood and how you are using their framing. Generally framing is crucial.
In the words of Zack De La Rocha
Amistad was a whip, the truth was feathered and tarred.
So how would you frame the idea?
Cooperative and collaborative with competitive elements.
So you’re saying that in your opinion, a ‘hunger games’ is too competitive?
I am saying hunger games is dystopic, and if you choose to dwell there the things you create will reflect those feelings.
The dystopian setting is beside the point of a tournament or action filled competition.
Based on zero sum scarcity hysteria too?
At the core of it the idea and the framing are inextricable intertwined, that is my entire point.
No. Not related to zero sum stuff.
