As Star Wars Episode VII quickly approaches, we keep the sci-fi spirit alive with this bonus episode of my full interview with Sky City Haya director Adad Warda.
Adad Warda is the director, writer, creator and producer for the proposed sci-fi TV series, Sky City Haya. Haya is a production of epic proportions with a vast international cast, exotic locations, and amazing visual effects and set design. All for a promotional video! That’s right, Adad and his team put in as much work as some filmmakers put into a full film to make a badass promo video that he and his producing partner Thom Wineland plan to use to get funding for making the actual series.
I think you’ll love this interview as we cover issues like: sci-fi stereotypes; world building; racial variety; their strategy to make a promo video about the series as a way to find investors; what makes a good sci-fi; lessons learned from mishaps during production; and running a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Read Adad’s guest blog post about the making of the video.
