Title: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: Ingwar on Oct 08, 2018, 07:05:23 PM
QuoteRidley Scott's Raised By Wolves ordered straight to series at TNT

TNT has greenlit straight to series Raised By Wolves, a serialized sci-fi series from master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott (The Martian, Blade Runner, Alien: Covenant), who will also mark his television directorial debut with the series. Acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski, the visionary behind the highly lauded film Prisoners, will serve as showrunner as well as a writer.

The series is being produced by Scott's Scott Free Productions in association with Turner's Studio T and Madhouse Entertainment, with Scott, Guzikowski, David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle) and Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), and Madhouse Entertainment's Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners) and Robyn Meisinger (Prisoners) serving as executive producers. The International rights to the series will be distributed through Turner International.

Raised by Wolves centers upon two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

"I'm always searching for new frontiers in the sci-fi genre and have found a true original in Raised by Wolves—a wholly distinct and imaginative world, full of characters struggling with existential questions: What makes us human? What constitutes a family? And what if we could start over again and erase the mess we've made of our planet? Would we survive? Would we do better?" said Ridley Scott. "Given TNT's impressive run of bold, quality programming, this feels like exactly the right home for this kind of ambitious television."

Oh shit, I hope it's not something he developed himself.  :laugh:

Riddles and those bloody androids again. It almost sounds like a Covenant sequel. David and a re-programmed Walter raising the human embryos on Origae-6. Minus the Aliens (which belong to Fox) of course.

It didn't sound like Fox was very keen on his Covenant 2 outline/treatment. We might still see a conclusion to Scott's prequel trilogy but with a very different story than was originally envisioned.

So I guess The Merlin Saga has either been cancelled or been seriously delayed. According to HN it's going to be a grueling 9 month shoot:

https://twitter.com/HNEsocial/status/1065141224267571201 (https://twitter.com/HNEsocial/status/1065141224267571201)

My guess is Scott will probably film Raised by Wolves at Cape Town Film Studios (Mad Max: Fury Road, Dredd etc.). Though he should really do the location shooting in Namibia if he wants real otherworldly/alien planet type scenery.

22 weeks of shooting! Its more than 5 months.

593 million South African Rand = 33.53 million British Pound.

QuoteThe director of Film Afrika Entertainment, Rudi Van As, said the dti's incentive was the life blood of the South African film industry.
Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies today commended the partnership of the film industry players and efforts aimed at contributing towards employment creation, enhancement of international profile and increasing the country's creative and technical skills base.

"In the period 2016/17, the film sector created a 6,029 full-time job equivalent and escalated to 9,423 for 2017/18. The South African films created the highest number of jobs at 6,334 whilst foreign films had the highest multiplier for investment," he said.

"During the past financial year, 99 film projects were approved, of which 22 were through the Foreign Film & Production and Post-Production Incentive, with projected investment of R2.2 billion and incentive of R468.5 million, this reflect our determination to realise the objective to encourage and attract large budget films and television production and post production work."

The partnership follows Davies' visit to three foreign films that were currently shooting at Cape Town Studios.

The department of trade and industry (dti) said an about R200 million incentive had been allocated for the three productions — Warrior Season 1, Warrior Season 2 and Raised by Wolves — visited by Davies.

The director of Film Afrika Entertainment, Rudi Van As, said the dti's incentive was the life blood of the South African film industry, which was one of the fastest growing economic sectors.

"We are delighted by the dti's acknowledgement of the huge contribution made by international television series to sustainable job creation in South Africa. The film industry looks forward to continued collaboration with the department in the evolution of an incentive programme which remains competitive," said Van As.

The production of Warrior Season 1 will spend more than R342 million in South Africa for production and post-production over nine weeks, while Warrior Season 2 will shoot over 20 weeks and is expected to spend more than R329 million inclusive of production and post-production.

The qualifying South African spend on production of Raised by Wolves, directed by Sir Ridley Scott, will be about R593 million, with a production shooting period of 22 weeks in 2019 and beyond on location in South Africa with the assistance of a South African company, Film Afrika Entertainment.

These three productions aimed to create 1,078 full-time jobs, as the sectors' jobs are seasonal.

Warrior Season 1 and 2 were produced by the American premier cable and satellite television network Home Box Office (HBO), which also produced Game of Thrones.

Raised by Wolves was produced by a British film and television company Scott Free Productions founded by brothers Sir Ridley Scott and Tony Scott.

Beginning of this month the dti undertook a mission to participate at the American Film Market (AFM) with the intention of introducing black film makers and other service providers in the value chain to the studios.

Nice catch Ingwar, here's the picture.

Looks like it's set on a desert planet. Skeletons of huge lifeforms as well. Prometheus-like artwork on the far right as well.

Quote22 weeks of shooting! Its more than 5 months.

I wonder then if the 9 months previously reported included pre-production (usually around 3 months) as well?

Quote593 million South African Rand = 33.53 million British Pound.

So that is about $42 million USD. About the same budget as Dredd (which was also shot there). Not a huge amount but TV shows typically don't have huge budgets.

Thanks for fixing that picture 8th. It didn't want to display when I tried. Don't know why.

Article says that South Africa film industry spend R593 million (£33 or $42 million) but we don't know how much money TNT and Scott Free invested into the project (if they invested at all). It seems quite high for a TV series.

Those pictures definitely represent artwork from Wolves.
QuoteRaised by Wolves centers upon two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

Well, if the SA government is giving 'em $42 million then it must have a really huge budget. They give rebates and incentives in proportion to the amount of money spent in the country.

I think WestWorld had a budget of about $100 million and apparently the most expensive television series ever made was Netflix's, The Crown at a cost of about $150 million.

QuoteThose pictures definitely represent artwork from Wolves.

Wonder if this could be the project Wayne Haag said he was working on for Scott.
Those pictures of the skeleton in the desert remind me of the Krayt Dragon carcass from Star Wars:

I also see some kind of sand/snow sleigh and various tools and a hatchet. And a little girl, either playing a flute or smoking a pipe. The backpack on the table with it's rolled-up sleeping mat is reminiscent of those from Alien: Covenant

I was afraid this would happen with Disney and Scott. Disney wants big hits (mostly through the MCU) while Ridley's movies have an uneven track record. Scott can make OK box office money ("Prometheus") or often just breaks even ("Covenant").
That's not enough it seems.

I hope Ridley's TV series does well.
- But as a fan of the Alien franchise, Scott not doing any Disney funded movie is not a good sign for a "Covenant" sequel.

So far this Raised by Wolves is looking more and more like a spiritual sequel to Covenant. I suspect we might well get an idea of where Covenant II might have gone with this. Of course this won't have any Aliens or characters from the Alien series but Scott wasn't interested in doing Xenomorphs again anyway. He only wants to focus on AI which he'll be doing with this new series.

Janty Yates, Prometheus and Alien: Covenant costume designer to work on Alien: Covenant II Raised by Wolves as well.

QuoteEXCLUSIVE: Ridley Scott's Android Series 'Raised By Wolves' Adds 'Prometheus/Alien: Covenant' Costume Designer

https://twitter.com/HNEsocial/status/1077668831278088208 (https://twitter.com/HNEsocial/status/1077668831278088208)




HN Entertainment was able to get ahold of some new plot and character details for TNT's Raised By Wolves, a new science fiction series that will be Ridley Scott's television debut and is written by Prisoners screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski.:

Spoiler
Raised By Wolves will be a 10-episode serialized science fiction series that will see two androids raising multiple generations of human children from embryos on a virgin planet, trying to rear them as atheists since religion has fractured Earth and are aiming to keep religious differences out of the equation in the new colony, as to save them tearing each other apart. They discover the belief in the unknown/unreal is part of being human and is harder than they think to remove it completely from their new society.

The two main roles will be the two androids that are raising the children, who are named Mother and Father along with Campion, one of the many children they will be raising in the series. Here are character breakdowns for the roles that have an option for five potential seasons (ratings will likely be the deciding factor if it goes beyond season one).

FATHER (MALE 30-39): Father is very proud of his son Campion while conflicted by his growing love for Mother and is more empathetic of the two androids, shows more signs of parenting skills you'd expect from an android tasked to raise children. He is more mindful of the well-being of the family, pragmatic but deeply caring and compassionate. Father is more forgiving of the beliefs of the younger generation and is determined to put Campion's future ahead of his own species' ambition. Can feel inferior at times to Mother being a less advanced android.

MOTHER (FEMALE 30-39): Mother is more fearless, bold, strict, intimidating, and stubborn than Father even though being a more advanced android and can be violent at times, which is a problem due to her immense level of strength. She also has the ability to levitate, can use mind-control, and physically morph into other beings. Desperate to be a mother she has issues with feelings and emotions. Her ambitions and stubbornness can sometimes lead to poor decisions that create tension with Father.

CAMPION (MALE 12-14): Campion is a scrappy, tough, and independent human child. Often mimics the overly literal ways of his android parents and is socially awkward. 
[close]

Filming was expected to begin mid-January in Cape Town, South Africa with it wrapping production in August-September.

We previously revealed that the production team includes production designer Chris Seagers (Alien: Covenant, X-Men: First Class) and Oscar-winning costume designer Janty Yates (Prometheus, Alien: Covenant, The Martian).

TNT has yet to give an official air date for Raised By Wolves.

Apparently Scott will only direct the first two episodes. There will be ten episodes in the first season.

QuoteKolbrenner also will serve as executive producer on the recently ordered TNT/Scott Free sci-fi series, Raised by Wolves, with its first two episodes helmed by Ridley Scott. The original series hails from Lit client Aaron Guzikowski, who will serve as creator and showrunner.

I want Michael Fassbender as Father and Katherine Waterston as Mother

I think that character description fits Walter rather well.

The character description for "MU/TH/UR" kinda reminds me of:

i'm pretty sure that when he eventually dies, ridley scott will have his conscience merged with ai for the explicit purpose of creating more alien films to piss us off
One can only hope.  :D ;D


I'm looking forward to this, hopefully this might actually spur on a short TV series to wrap up his prequels, like 8 episodes; an 8 hour long movie, really ha.  I could see that being potentially viable now that he gets a taste for directing television again after so long.

Quote"I love science fiction because science fiction is casting and opening up a brand-new arena," said Scott, who has had a lot of success in the genre on the feature side with a string of movies, from Alien and Blade Runner to The Martian. In Raised By Wolves, of which Scott will direct the first two episodes, "the way we come into this brave new world is almost like starting it from scratch with nothing; there are six embryos of children, and that's the beginning of evolution of the new race," he said.

QuoteFimmel plays Marcus. This marks his first TV series role following his starring turn as Ragnar Lothbrok on History's hit Vikings for four seasons. He has since focused on features with a couple of films in the hopper including Dreamland and El Tonto.

I don't know, Deadline says it's "Marcus" but it could just be "fathers" real name like you say. Have you watched Vikings?

Main cast announced:

(https://www.tvinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/raised-by-wolves-1014x570.jpg)

Abubakar Salim                           Amanda Collin                      Winta McGrath

Quote from: DeadlineRaised by Wolves has its regulars. Seven actors have been cast alongside Travis Fimmel in Scott Free Productions' straight-to-series sci-fi drama for TNT, which will mark Ridley Scott's TV helming debut. Rounding out the principal group are Amanda Collin, Abubakar Salim, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Jordan Loughran, Aasiya Shah and Ivy Wong.

Collin (A Conspiracy of Faith) is Mother, an android with a secret past who has been programmed to raise a brood of human children on a faraway planet. In addition to teaching her children to survive, Mother must also keep them from believing in the unreal; to ensure this virgin planet isn't torn apart by the same religious differences that lead the Earth to its ultimate destruction. Mother hopes her family will serve as the nucleus for a peaceful, technocratic colony — a new beginning for humanity. But as she struggles to mold these growing humans, she also begins uncovering secrets hidden within her own programming, secrets that could help her protect her family, but could just as easily destroy them.

Salim (Fortitude) will play Father, an android whose devotion to his human children is matched only by his devotion to Mother. Father is a considerably less complex model than Mother, but thanks to his wisdom and patience, he is no less important to the family's survival. Like many human fathers, Father wants to be funny — especially in the eyes of Mother — but it's a skill he often struggles with. What he is good at is always being there when you need him.

McGrath (Aloft) will play Campion, a scrappy and soulful 12-year-old boy who was raised by Mother and Father since birth. When a ship of humans arrives from Earth, Campion is exposed to followers of religion for the first time in his life, and starts to question whether his android parents really know what's best for him.

Algar (The Virtues) is Sue, a strong, resourceful combat medic who put aside her reservations about coming to this new planet at the urging of her husband Marcus. But as the planet's mysteries and dangers threaten to upend the promise of a new life, Sue questions whether they have compromised too much in the name of survival.

Jamieson (Game of Thrones) will play Paul, Sue and Marcus' 12-year-old son, a boy of unshakable faith in both his religion and his father. Having always felt like an outsider back on Earth, Paul strikes up a complicated friendship — and rivalry — with Campion. Though the two young men begin to learn from one another, they also begin to challenge one another.

Hazzard (The Long Song) will play the highly intelligent Hunter, age 17. His father was a high-ranking member of a powerful religious order back on Earth. But now that the hierarchy he once sat atop no longer exists, Hunter must learn what it's like to be just like everybody else.

Loughran (The Infiltrator) will play Tempest, 17. Raised with a religion she never really believed in, she sees Mother and Father as superior to the human guardians who so often let her down. Soon after arriving in the new world, Tempest discovers she is pregnant; the result of a rape she suffered at the hands of a high-ranking member of her church.

Shah (Call the Midwife) will play Holly, 15, a burgeoning warrior who is trying to find her place in this strange new world.

Wong (Star Wars: Rogue One) will play Vita, 9, the youngest member of the family, but also the most fearless.

The previously cast Fimmel will play Marcus, a roguish, charismatic soldier, who was the ultimate survivor back on Earth. To escape the doomed planet, Marcus and his wife Sue made a dangerous decision that they must keep secret at all costs. But now that they've arrived in the new world, Marcus is struggling to reconcile the sins of his past, even as he continues to embrace the killer instincts that always kept him alive in the first place.

Production on Raised by Wolves — the first series ordered for the Ridley Scott-curated sci-fi programming block on TNT — begins this month in Cape Town, South Africa.

Yeah, that primitive hut/shed kind of reminds me of what we saw in the concept art. I wouldn't be surprised if they built a whole village out there. Apparently it's near the town of Wellington which is situated right next to that big mountain range behind Cape Town Film Studios.

That article says that it took them 2 months to construct that outdoor set. And that they currently have 400 crew members working on it. So it must be pretty massive.

I'm guessing they probably built something similar to the Pirate Village they built on Cape Town Film Studio's backlot for the Black Sails TV series.

(https://www.capetownfilmstudios.co.za/images/slide4.jpg)

It's that artificial harbour and 17th century style town at the bottom middle of the picture. You can also see various full-sized galleons scattered about the place.

Raised by Wolves' "town" probably won't have a harbour but I guess it would have those primitive sheds maybe mixed in with parts of the colony ship. A common held idea of a colony ship was that once it reached it's destination it would be dismantled and used to create structures/habs on the new world. The fact that the set is situated out in a isolated spot among the mountains should also help to minimize the need for large blue/greenscreens making for a more authentic setting.

I think you're right regarding minimising the need of using green screen. It's Earth-like planet. Not like red planet in The Marian where almost every scene regarding Mars was shoot inside the studio.

Ha no, I'm not that hardcore.  :laugh:

I think they shot a reasonably fair amount of the Martian in the Wadi Rum as well. At least the rover scenes. The hab interior and exterior were definitely filmed inside a studio.

What fascinates me about Scott's sci-fi films is his juxtapositioning of advanced high-tech and primitive elements. In Blade Runner for example you had coolie-hat-wearing Asian peasants on bicycles trundling past futuristic-flying-police-cars while in Alien: Covenant you had the contrast between ancient engineer architecture/civilization set against the Engineer and human high-tech ships.

In Blade Runner for example you had coolie-hat-wearing Asian peasants on bicycles trundling past futuristic-flying-police-cars while in Alien: Covenant you had the contrast between ancient engineer architecture/civilization set against the Engineer and human high-tech ships.

Seconded. I like these anachronisms of science fiction too; like the afrofuturistic city of Wakanda in Black Panther movie or Naboo's Theed city in The Phantom Menace. (Ok, these aren't exactly the best examples  :laugh:). But there you have that cool metting between ancient wolrd and the future. Blade Runner is like when the 50s/noir meet cyberpunk, and I love it.

Futuristic city, off-world colonies, flying cars, spaceships, androids, space monsters and .... non-flat TVs and monitors :)

If Scott directed Alien and Blade Runner today this things would have been changed for sure. It wasn't intentional. You cannot predict everything and you work with tools that are available at certain period of time. Who would have predicted flat screens? :)

Steam Punk is an amazing sub genre of fiction. I also like when you combine it with surrealism / fantasy (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen).

Not as far as I know. It might help to look at their previous TV series's to see how distribution were handled in those cases. I'm pretty sure it will eventually appear on all major TV channels worldwide as well as DVD/BD. It cost quite a bit to make so TNT will be keen to defray their expenses asap.

I wonder if that "Romeo" is a Shakespear reference? And do you know what "block" refers to within the television industry? Episodes?

And lots of new stuff today from the SA Film Academy:

QuoteSA FILM ACADEMY CUB ON RAISED BY WOLVES
SA FILM Academy Training Manager Karabo IdiEmpras Malefo visited the The Good Hope Centre set on the last day of Block 1 of Raised By Wolves, TNT's highly anticipated serialized sci-fi series from master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott "Director/Writer" (The Martian, Blade Runner, Alien: Covenant), which marks his television directorial debut.
The series is currently in production in and around the City of Cape Town and the environs of Cape Town, Western Cape.

Here is an image of Raised By Wolves Unit Manager and industry stalwart Clinto Du Preez posing with SA FILM Academy Unit trainee, Mzingisi Sigquwo.

QuoteHere is an image of Raised By Wolves Lighting Best Boy Philip Mhlabane, Luvo Zhibodi - who came onto RBW as a trainee and has already been upskilled to Lighting Spark(Thank-you Phillip for your mentorship!) and at the back SA FILM Academy Lighting trainee, Thembeleni Namiso.

QuoteHere is an image of Raised By Wolves Block 2 DOP Ross Emery (Thank-you Ross for your mentorship!) and SA FILM Academy Camera trainee Lerato Mabitsela.
No Dariusz Wolski, at least for "Block 2"  :(
IIRC, Ross was second unit DoP on Alien Covenant

The "Good Hope Centre" is Cape Town's former exhibition hall that was recently converted into one of the world's largest soundstages:

And a crew member's shot of the Good Hope centre interior set taken yesterday:

And do you know what "block" refers to within the television industry? Episodes?

I found this:

QuoteEvery film shoot is divided into five parts:

1. Block – determining where the actors will be on the set and the first camera position

2. Light – time for the DOP to light the set and position the camera for the first shot

3. Rehearse – camera rehearsal of the first set-up with the actors and crew

4. Adjustments – making lighting and other adjustments

5. Shoot – shooting the first scene (then repeat the process)

Blocking a scene is simply "working out the details of an actor's moves in relation to the camera."

You can also think of blocking as the choreography of a dance or a ballet: all the elements on the set (actors, extras, vehicles, crew, equipment) should move in perfect harmony with each other.

I don't think that's it.

What is Raised by Wolves, a network commissioned TV show for broadcast? Sometimes if the season is a long one, like more than 20 episodes, it will get broken up into two "sub"-seasons (in my example, 10 episodes each), which means production will take a hiatus in the break, and even the broadcast schedule will have a gap in the middle. Agents of Shield was like this, I think it was 22 episodes broken into 2 chunks, except they called them "pods."

Maybe "block" = "pod" ?

Post by: SiL on Mar 02, 2019, 07:58:10 AM
Yeah, those stages are what you do on-set before each scene or set-up.

Since this series is shot across different locations, the blocks might just refer to major location changes, or as suggested by TC, breaking the episodes into "blocks" for filming.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct \'Raised by Wolves\', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Mar 02, 2019, 04:33:04 PM
Yeah, Raised by Wolves is a network TV show consisting of ten episodes in the first season. Ridley Scott will direct the first two episodes and then someone else will take over the reins.

I assume it will take just under a month to film each episode as the filming period is about nine months for the entire first season. Not sure if they are filming it linearly though - this might be why it's divided-up into "blocks" instead of episodes. Or otherwise it's simply location changes like SiL said.




The crew member who took that interior shot of the Good Hope Centre appears to be the stunt double for Amanda Collin (who plays Mother, an android). I noticed in the second pic of Abu's post on the previous page that she also has short cropped red hair. Amanda also left a comment in the second post which seems to confirm it:

Possibly another RBW location from 20 Feb, an abandoned/derelict building. The concept art and character descriptions would suggest that there might be flashback scenes to a futuristic, post-apocalyptic/war-ravaged Earth. Same red crane from earlier on can also be seen again in second pic. Concept art wall also showed a photograph of a section of a Hind gunship.

Matias Varela cast for Raised by Wolves block 2.

(https://pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2019/03/matias-varela-tnt.jpg?w=446&h=299&crop=1)

QuoteMatias Varela (Narcos) is set as a series regular opposite Travis Fimmel in Scott Free Productions' straight-to-series sci-fi drama for TNT, which will mark Ridley Scott's TV helming debut.

The series from writer-showrunner Aaron Guzikowski, Scott Free and Turner's Studio T revolves around two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

Varela will play Lucius, a loyal soldier, who is trying to make up for the perceived failings of his father, a man whose sense of kindness and mercy were his ultimate undoing. Lucius is so committed to reversing his father's legacy, that he devotes himself to serving the very man who executed him, a man he believes may be a savior to his people.

Varela was most recently seen starring as real-life DEA informant Jorge Salcedo in Netflix's Narcos. He's currently shooting the Swedish limited series Blinded and recently wrapped Jesper Ganslandt's next feature film 438 Dagar, in which he stars opposite Gustaf Skarsgård.

Apparently Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil, Eragon, Luther, CSI, Helen of Troy etc.) was also part of the cast. She wasn't announced with all the other actors so perhaps TNT was keeping her role as a surprise reveal.

QuoteIt [Raised by Wolves Block 1] was fairly unconventional, to say the least! 6 cameras, one take on every scene and 4 days ahead of schedule amazing thing to be a part of!

This is Thabisa, she is magic; the best on set costumier, and I miss her now I'm back in London, and she just sent me this photo which is clearly airbrushed to f**k but I love it nearly as much as I love her #raisedbywolves #ridleyscott

Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Apr 23, 2019, 06:41:50 PM
My guess is 5 blocks. Block 1 consisted of two episodes and there are ten episodes in the first season.

I wonder who's directing now? Don't see anything on IMDb yet apart from Scott who directed the first two episodes.

Derek Ueckermann? Ridley hasn't worked with anyone else but Wolski since Prometheus. Because Scott directed only 2 episodes it makes perfect sense. Otherwise Wolski would have to work till the end. Changing cinematographers during production isn't common practice. Is it?
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on May 02, 2019, 09:22:15 PM
Derek Ueckermann was just the guy who took the photographs. Not exactly sure what he's doing on this but he works in the camera department. The DoP for RBW Block 2 is actually Ross Emery (Scott's second unit DoP on Alien: Covenant). I'm assuming that Wolski worked with Scott on Block 1 but I can't actually confirm it as yet. Scott would probably want Wolski on Merlin a little later this year, so I guess he didn't want him tied-up with this very lengthy production.

Changing cinematographers during production on feature films certainly isn't common practice, and when it happens it's usually not a good thing. Happened on Aliens and Alien 3. But in this case it's probably different since there is also a change of director (and I think several of the prime crew members).

Saw it on "The SA Film Academy" facebook page a couple of months back. I also posted it earlier in this thread:

(https://imgur.com/3naaoZz.jpg)

The photo was taken while they were still busy filming Block 1 but the fact that they specifically say "Block 2 DOP" seems to suggest that someone else was DoP on Block 1. And I'm pretty certain it would have been Wolski.

Post by: The Eighth Passenger on May 04, 2019, 06:01:56 PM
Maybe we'll see a bit of a difference with the various directors and DoP's. They'll probably want to put their own individual stamp on it. They've got pretty big shoes to fill following on Scott and Wolski though.  :)


And finally our first look at some extras in costume. Apparently these are child soldiers so it's most likely for a flashback scene to a war ravaged Earth. Those "fallout vibes" again.

Quote from: The Eighth Passenger on Feb 09, 2019, 05:07:48 PM
What fascinates me about Scott's sci-fi films is his juxtapositioning of advanced high-tech and primitive elements. In Blade Runner for example you had coolie-hat-wearing Asian peasants on bicycles trundling past futuristic-flying-police-cars while in Alien: Covenant you had the contrast between ancient engineer architecture/civilization set against the Engineer and human high-tech ships.

When I first saw the photo I had to do a double take because I thought they were wearing chainmail.  :laugh:

I wonder if Scott finished polishing (post-production and so on) his two episodes or they're waiting for all episodes to be shot first. What's typical procedure?
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on May 29, 2019, 05:49:19 PM
These days they often start working on the VFX while they're still filming. I think the VFX facilities prefer a steady, slow influx of work as opposed to getting a huge chunk in one go along with a very tight deadline. We already saw that photograph of Amanda Collin getting 3d scanned, so I think they're working on that as they go along.

Scott also does a rough cut while filming nowadays, which means a little less work in the editing room afterwards. So I suspect a fair amount of post-production might already have been done on the first two episodes.

According to IMDb, Luke Scott directed RBW Block 2 (consisting of 2 episodes).

Though I haven't found official confirmation anywhere else yet.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: Ingwar on Jul 01, 2019, 09:59:06 PM
Luke Scott? I have bad feelings about it.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jul 02, 2019, 01:34:28 PM
I suppose it kinda makes sense, Luke worked with Ross Emery (Block 2 DoP) on Alien: Covenant as well. I wasn't that impressed with the Last Supper short he directed or the two BR2049 prequel shorts either so don't know how he will fare here. Haven't seen Morgan either. Safe to say the series will probably take a bit of a dip in quality after the first two episodes with the second unit guys in charge now but it's ultimately the writing that will have to buoy-up the whole series.

I suspect TNT is trying to give the impression that Ridley Scott is directing the entire series since they have been absolutely mum on who the other directors will be. Their earlier press releases also gave the impression that it would all be directed by Riddles.

Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Jul 02, 2019, 08:46:13 PM
Morgan was terrible. But Luke (and any other directors) will likely just be aping the style already set by the first couple directors and the showrunner, so I'm not too worried about the show taking a dip quality-wise if it does start off strong.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jul 02, 2019, 09:27:19 PM
Agreed, Scott and Seagers would have done most of the production design already so I'm sure that aspect at least would remain mostly consistent throughout. And as long as the writing is solid it should help to even things out even with the less experienced primary crew members now onboard.

Giving his fans a bit of a synopsis, Trav went on: 'It's about... the Earth becomes uninhabitable and we find a planet to live on. 'And of course a people do, there's a lot of politics and stuff going on,

everyone bickers and we all fight and probably have to move to another planet after that.'

Boy Emrys finds bird merlin (small falcon) who follows him. Boy names him Trouble. At the end of the book Rhia suggests that Emrys should call himself Merlin but I cannot tell you why.

Unless they told him what he was allowed to say?

So, it looks like the story basically goes like this then:

Spoiler
A colony ship carrying human embryos and crewed by two androids is sent to a distant habitable world.

QuoteRaised By Wolves will be a 10-episode serialized science fiction series that will see two androids raising multiple generations of human children from embryos on a virgin planet, trying to rear them as atheists since religion has fractured Earth and are aiming to keep religious differences out of the equation in the new colony, as to save them tearing each other apart. They discover the belief in the unknown/unreal is part of being human and is harder than they think to remove it completely from their new society.

By the time the series starts there are already six children being raised by the two androids on this new world. A beginning of evolution of the new race. Everything is well.

But the last working spaceship from Earth eventually arrives on this new world carrying adults consisting of Marcus (an ex-soldier), Sue (a combat medic), Paul (a boy of unshakable faith), Hunter (formerly from a religious order), Tempest (a pregnant rape victim), Holly (a warrior) and various others. The introduction of the new arrivals creates conflict and contention when they introduce their beliefs and vices to this new virgin world.

I hope it's gonna be very compelling and multilayered story, full of religious, cultural and psycho-social subjects.

By the way, title itself is quite vague. Raised by Wolves. Androids as "breeding" alphas in symbolic wolf-pack (colony/new society)? Or human kind as wolves in reference to Latin proverb Homo homini lupus est meaning "A man is a wolf to another man"? Intriguing.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jul 28, 2019, 05:11:24 PM
I think the original meaning of the phrase "raised by wolves" was in reference to the mythical founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus who were reputedly raised by a female wolf. They were raised by a wild animal yet they created a new age of civilization in a very barbaric time.

The more modern (and commonly known) meaning of the phase is simply in reference to people who act uncouth or uncivilized. People with bad manners. So it might be ostensibly in reference to the androids who raises the children. We might be led to believe that androids are not to be trusted (as per Ridley Scott's films) but I suspect it will have a double entendre and that in the end it will be the children raised by humans who are in fact the uncivilized ones.

So essentially the same as your two theories. And in the end it really comes down to the same thing really,

Yeah, from as early on as Blade Runner at least. When he originally got to LA to work on the film, he asked someone to show him the city's most famous landmarks. And that's how we ended up with Union Station, The Bradbury Building, The Ennis-Brown House, 2nd Street Tunnel etc. in the film.

For Alien Covenant he chartered a helicopter to show him New Zealand's South Isle. And that's how we first learned that it would be filmed in NZ and that it would take place in a mountainous, rain forest setting.

More recently he was spotted doing location scouting for The Cartel in Mexico and Spain.

Good question, so far we've seen savannah type environments, dune seas, decayed urban settings, forests, mountains, coastal areas and now these interesting rockscapes. Though some of those areas might be for Earth scenes like that run-down industrial area.

The bulk of the series seems to have been shot at Lourensford Estate (dubbed "Base Camp" by the crew). That area with the mountains in the background we first saw when they started filming. So I guess that's where the colony itself is established.

Multiple cameras, one take on each scene and ahead of schedule. Scott's style which I have to say sometimes is worrying. I prefer old-school Scott who took his time during Blade Runner. We all know that Scott loves spontaneity but does he still do rehearsals? I hope he does because as Willem Dafoe said recently in the interview: Maybe because I'm theatre actor I like rehearsal. You can't ruin spontaneity with the rehearsal. You can only frame things more precisely so you can live in a fuller way inside of the score. And I agree with that.

Willem speaks about rehearsal process at 8:14.

On Blade Runner it was like 20 takes on average, way behind schedule and over budget. But I guess he had to change his style if he wanted to continue working as a director though. Pity.

You can sometimes see the actors struggle in his later films. Accents often change throughout the film or you get shitty performances out of very good actors because they didn't have time to rehearse and prepare properly.

Don't think he even does rehearsals anymore.

Yeah, I think Kingdom of Heaven is his best period drama. Better than Gladiator IMO. I think at that point he still did rehearsals (as your videos show) and definitely more than one take. Here's a quote from Joaquin Phoenix on Gladiator just five years prior to Kingdom.

Quote from: Joaquin PhoenixThe first scene that I did, I was really nervous, and we shot, I don't know, an unbelievable amount of takes. A shocking amount. Over and over again. And at some point at the end, after hours, he finally said, "Okay, we got it." And then later on, when we were working on the film, he told me that he hadn't been putting film in the camera for like the first 30 takes.

75 takes is crazy for a TV series. But I think the main issue with Scott on Blade Runner (and Alien) was not so much the amount of takes but rather the amount of time he took to set up each scene. The bulk of each night's shooting time was spent getting the lighting and props just right. And that is why it looks so incredible. Fast forward to Alien: Covenant and you now have a lot of very average shots mixed-in with Scott's otherwise awesome cinematography.

With regards to rehearsals, in the Prometheus documentary Rafe Spall says there were no rehearsals. Lots of stunt rehearsals though but that's not something you can ever skimp on.

Post by: Ingwar on Aug 29, 2019, 07:59:09 PM
No rehearsals? I wonder how Scott would tackle the opening fighting scene in The Revenant which took "only"one month of rehearsals:

QuoteBecause cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki was committed to using only natural light to shoot the film, the window to capture a scene of this magnitude was extremely small. Should the entire one-shot scene go wrong or lose valuable light, the entire sequence would have to wait another day for just the right light.

I think for fighting and stunt scenes Scott will still do rehearsals. The Covenant documentary shows Michael Fassbender performing rehearsals for that android Kung-Fu fighting scene. It's more like the ordinary dialogue scenes in which he has done away with rehearsals.

Nice find. He also directed few episodes of Penny Dreadful and The Alienist. Snowpiercer (based on the film from 2013 by Bong Joon-ho) TV series will be released in 2020 which he also took part in.

Didn't know they're making a Snowpiercer TV series, the movie was quite good, even had John Hurt in it.

So Ridley directed the first two episodes followed by Luke who also did two. So we have five episodes accounted for. I wonder who directed the remaining five episodes?

Great movie imho. Plus Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton.

We find out soon who is responsible for remaining five episodes.

PS I'm still not convinced about Luke Scott as director of two episodes.

I've been trying to figure out the meaning behind the "praise sol" t-shirts some RBW crew members have been sporting lately. Is this one of the religious cults in the series? Have they adopted it for their crew t-shirts?

Interesting find 8th. It might be:

1. Related with the plot. The Latin name for the sun is sol. New religion/cult of the sun?
2. Part of advertising alternative source of energy. In this case solar energy. As we found out Wolves production is kinda eco-friendly.
3. Just a crew t-shirt like Yes Gov'nor, My Ass! ;D

Sol or sol Invictus was the sun god of the later Roman Empire and the patron of soldiers and there was as a connection between it's emperors especially Aurelian, Rome's philosopher emperor.

So Iam leaning towards option 1.

Marcus is also a common Roman name.

The ancient Incas and Egyptians also worshipped the sun. Sounds like typical Ridley to mix in ancient elements and religions.

True, good points.

I think you are right about it havng something to do with Ridleys affinity to ancient themes and religions,it does not get much more ancient than sun gods.

Having done a bit more reading on the subject, it looks like there were two versions of that religion. "Sol" was a much earlier version while "Sol Invictus" was the more modern version popularized by Emperor Aurelian.

According to Roman sources, the worship of Sol was introduced shortly after the foundation of Rome. And the popular foundation myth of Rome says that the city was founded by Romulus and Remus, twins who were raised by a she-wolf as infants.

Jon Kuyper on producing 'Mad Max: Fury Road', Ridley Scott series 'Raised By Wolves'

QuoteDuring his seven years as an in-house producer at Warner Bros, Kuyper supervised production on big-budget studio movies including George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsy and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.

(...)On a completely different tack, Kuyper is currently producing his first TV series, Scott's 10-part Raised By Wolves, about androids raising human children on a mysterious planet. "For the scheduling we had ten hours that we broke up into five blocks," Kuyper explained. "Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes, the second block was his son Luke Scott – it was almost like doing a feature film every five weeks.

"I would be prepping with the next director while the current director was shooting, which was very different for me as a producer because I'm used to working with one director and being with that director in all phases of production – pre-production and planning; during the shoot, solving problems on set and giving encouragement, and then in early post I usually hand it over. Now I was dealing with one director who was shooting, one prepping and another director giving notes on the script."

Yeah, it's pretty much as we had it figured. But confusingly, I initially thought it was Luke who directed the second block but then I saw his name on the clapperboard for episode 10 which falls into block 5. But now Kuyper is saying Luke did direct the second block??  ???

Unless Luke came back again for the last three episodes since there is still three episodes (one-and-a-half "blocks") unaccounted for.

As per IMDb:

Ridley Scott   ...   (2 episodes)
Luke Scott   ...   (2 episodes)
Alex Gabassi   ...   (2 episodes)
James Hawes   ...   (1 episode)

QuoteRidley Scott's 'Raised by Wolves' Sci-Fi Series Moves From TNT To HBO Max

Raised by Wolves, a serialized sci-fi series from Ridley Scott, will premiere on the direct-to-consumer platform HBO Max. The announcement was made during the WarnerMedia Day investor presentation Tuesday afternoon.

"As we strive to set a high creative bar for HBO Max, there's no better person to set that bar than Ridley Scott as he delivers his first season of yet another incredible vision realized," said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max and president TBS, TNT, and truTV.

"The breathtaking worlds, compelling characters and intricate storylines that Ridley, Aaron and team have created for this project are mesmerizing," said Aubrey.

A short clip from the show that played at a WarnerMedia investor relations event Tuesday showed a bleak and desolate planet, where a woman can be seen with a newborn and then several children.

She expresses concern that people -- believing androids shouldn't be raising human children -- will take them away. There are shots of fight scenes as people come to rescue the kids, to which their android protector says: "You are all my children. I'm only here to protect you."

QuoteRaised By Wolves stars describe working with 'genius' Sir Ridley Scott

The stars of new sci-fi series Raised By Wolves have described the experience of working with its "genius" creator Sir Ridley Scott.

Abubakar Salim and Niamh Algar both star opposite Travel Fimmel in the show, which revolves around two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet, and which will be helmed by the Alien and Blade Runner director.

The duo are also on Bafta's list of 20 breakthrough Brits for 2019, alongside Sex Education creator Laurie Nunn and Killed By My Debt actor Chase Perdomo.

Salim told the PA news agency: "I was in Montreal and I think the email went to junk first and then I checked my junk and was like 'Oh no, this is real', and then I panicked and was like 'They are making such a mistake'.

Algar added: "I was on set filming up in Leeds and I hadn't checked my email and I rang my mum and told her and then read down on the email where it says 'please don't tell anyone' and had to be like 'Mum, you know that information I told you? Forget that'."

The duo wrapped production on Raised By Wolves in September, and Salim said: "It was an incredible experience, we were in Cape Town from January onwards and it was just a crazy show.

"It's based on sci-fi, it's got Ridley helming it, so it was wild, it was a completely different beast to what I've normally done before so I loved it.

"He's a genius, he's the kind of director who when he makes a choice and it's the right choice, you never doubt it. It was amazing to see him work.

"The nicest thing about him is he's a beautiful soul, he's an easy guy to talk to, he wasn't a difficult man to approach when it came to asking what you feel are stupid questions.

"He would give you time and then of course he would tell you if it was a stupid question, which is great, so honest."

Algar added: "It didn't feel like we shooting TV, it felt like we were shooting a film, a really long film.

"The sets were all built, there was very little green screen or blue screen and you're on set you feel like you are on a different planet, especially being so far away from home, in South Africa.

"He (Sir Ridley) does very few takes and I think that is just because he knows.

"He's created the environment and he has put you in the right frame of mind and ultimately what you're going to bring to it is extra so you only do one or two takes.

"Creatively he just paints the screen, that's what he does, he's come from a design background and you can totally see that in the way in which he directs.

"Seeing on the monitor, it's a painting. It's incredible to see him work and he's got so much energy."

Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Oct 31, 2019, 04:27:07 PM
Yeah, Algar paints a very accurate picture of Scott's modus operandi. He gives his actors lots of freedom for personal interpretation as to how their characters act and react and even looks. Katherine Waterston's much maligned haircut in Alien: Covenant for example was her idea. Most of Roy Batty's "Tears in the Rain" soliloquy came from Rutger Hauer himself and that is of course now one of the most memorable parts of the film.

But usually if an actor brings up an idea that Scott doesn't fancy he will tell them that it sounds "interesting", which will be the cue for the actor to just drop the idea and move along.  :laugh:

I like the sound of these quotes:

Quote"It didn't feel like we shooting TV, it felt like we were shooting a film, a really long film.

"The sets were all built, there was very little green screen or blue screen and you're on set you feel like you are on a different planet, especially being so far away from home, in South Africa.

I wonder if they shot in anomorphic? It would certainly be unusual for a tv series but not the first.

QuoteAlgar added: "I was on set filming up in Leeds and I hadn't checked my email and I rang my mum and told her and then read down on the email where it says 'please don't tell anyone' and had to be like 'Mum, you know that information I told you? Forget that'."

So she basically told her mum to stay mum?  :)

I hope so, HBO will be trying to pimp their new service so a trailer for a brand new show would help to sell it.

With this being included in the date reveal video for HBO Max, then I'm going to assume that Raised by Wolves is going to debut right on launch in May.

Wouldn't be shocked to see them release their shows weekly, like D+.

On a completely different tack, Kuyper is currently producing his first TV series, Scott's 10-part Raised By Wolves, about androids raising human children on a mysterious planet. "For the scheduling we had ten hours that we broke up into five blocks," Kuyper explained. "Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes, the second block was his son Luke Scott – it was almost like doing a feature film every five weeks.

Yeah, it's pretty much as we had it figured. But confusingly, I initially thought it was Luke who directed the second block but then I saw his name on the clapperboard for episode 10 which falls into block 5. But now Kuyper is saying Luke did direct the second block??  ???

Unless Luke came back again for the last three episodes since there is still three episodes (one-and-a-half "blocks") unaccounted for.

As per IMDb:

Ridley Scott   ...   (2 episodes)
Luke Scott   ...   (2 episodes)
Alex Gabassi   ...   (2 episodes)
James Hawes   ...   (1 episode)

Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Battlestar Galactica - mini series, Heroes, The Terror) is the fifth director with two episodes credited to him.

Luke Scott also now has three episodes (instead of just two) credited to him. So he directed episodes 3,4 and 10. All the episodes are now accounted for with regards to directors.

I remember being so excited for Halo: Nightfall when it was announced that Ridley Scott was producing it and that Sergio Mimica-Gezzan was directing (Sergio Mimica-Gezzan directed some of my favorite episodes of BSG), but that "film" (I use the term very, very loosely) was rough. I couldn't even finish it.

Still, this project seems to have a lot more effort going into it than that Halo project did (including a Ridley Scott that's actually very hands on), and I know based on his work in BSG that Sergio Mimica-Gezzan can deliver the goods, so I remain very hopeful and optimistic about this entire endeavor.

Ben Frost is composing the score. He worked for Fortitude (TV Series) and Dark (TV Series).
According to Wikipedia he:

Quotecomposes minimalist, instrumental and experimental music, with influences ranging from classical minimalism to punk rock and black metal.

Ben Frost bio: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1640152/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm

Sounds ominous, otherworldly, haunting and melancholic. Good choice for a composer of sci-fi series. He'll deliver.

If this is anywhere near as good as The Terror, although that is an adaptation and RBW is an original project, then I wonder if another Sci-Fi success under Ridley Scott will look good on his CV so to speak to Disney.

Perhaps. Earlier in this thread we raised the likelihood that many of Ridley's ideas for the Covenant sequel might have been recycled for this show. If the show does really well ratings-wise, Fox/Disney might end up kicking themselves.

Not real news per se, but some more information on the strong environmental focus of the production.

Quote from: Film AfrikaOn Raised By Wolves and The Watch we eliminated all plastic water bottles (100's of thousands of bottles), plastic cutlery, polystyrene containers and food waste (turned in compost for township gardens) AND introduced meat-free days. Bit by bit, reducing our carbon footprint and caring for our planet - our Film Afrika Ethos demands it. Thank you all for your contribution - you are amazing.

If you watch that presentation briefly HBO is going big so I cannot imagine not releasing Wolves in May.

From wikipedia:

QuoteWarnerMedia also renewed its output deal with European satellite TV provider Sky in the latter's core markets including the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy. Sky will continue to carry the main HBO service's programming (primarily on Sky Atlantic) through at least 2024, and extended its rights to various programming from Warner Bros. and the former Turner channels. Sky's most recent renewal includes a provision for co-productions between HBO Max and Sky Studios, but there has been no specific confirmation about broadcast rights to other HBO Max original programming.

Irish actress Niamh Algar about working with Ridley. Interview from 29 July 2019:

Quote"It's monumental, the scale of it is huge. And Ridley is – well, it's Ridley Scott!" she exclaims. "I grew up watching his movies, as did everyone. He's established himself, and the worlds that he has created, as formative experiences for so many people, and it's because he really builds these worlds so brilliantly. We're shooting out in the desert, and the mountains, and all around Cape Town. I can't get over the scale of it. So I think watching it is going to be mind-blowing."

Algar has had a lifelong love affair with boxing, which helps her deal with any worries or anxiety – but it has also come in very handy for her action-heavy role in Raised By Wolves.

"I play Sue, and she's a combat medic caught up in a war between two main armies, all trying to survive because Earth has expelled all of its natural resources and oxygen levels are critical – it's terrifying but it's also what Ridley thinks people are anticipating about where our future might be heading! She and her husband, played by Travis Fimmel, head off, and then there's a parallel story about two androids who are raising human children. I'm so excited about it."

I'm being very cautious, I want to return and finish off the film with Matt Damon.

Are you doing anything in particular to pass the time?

Only 1 month. In May, I'm going to see Raised By Wolves from The Greatest Of All Time Ridley Scott.

Hopefully time past fast.

As childish as it may sound, I just wanna wake up to hear the pandemic is over and Raised by Wolves plus the Third Alien Prequel are being released 。◕ ‿ ◕。

Deadline seems to think so. Guess we'll just have to wait and see for now.

Quote from: The Eighth Passenger on Mar 29, 2020, 04:11:30 PM
Raised by Wolves' May release is still on for now despite pandemic:

QuoteHBO Max, where some series were impacted by coronavirus-related shutdowns, will have at least a handful original series on tap for May, including shows that migrated from cable siblings TNT/TBS like Search Party and Raised By Wolves.

Yeah, it's looking increasingly like RBW won't be debuting with the launch of the new service. Probably also explains why we haven't seen a trailer yet. They're probably holding it back a few months until HBO Max is also available in Europe. Summer 2020 now seems like a more likely release date.

No mention of RBW in HBO Max's launch day lineup:

Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jun 06, 2020, 09:47:15 PM
Yeah, there has been various references to Earth in the character descriptions and such. I guess it will probably be along the lines of the TV series "Lost", where everybody is stranded on this new distant world but every so often it flashes back to a particular characters past.

QuoteMother must also ensure this virgin planet isn't torn apart by the same religious differences that lead the Earth to its ultimate destruction.

QuoteJamieson (Game of Thrones) will play Paul, Sue and Marcus' 12-year-old son, a boy of unshakable faith in both his religion and his father. Having always felt like an outsider back on Earth, Paul strikes up a complicated friendship — and rivalry — with Campion.

QuoteHazzard (The Long Song) will play the highly intelligent Hunter, age 17. His father was a high-ranking member of a powerful religious order back on Earth.

QuoteLoughran (The Infiltrator) will play Tempest, 17. Raised with a religion she never really believed in, she sees Mother and Father as superior to the human guardians who so often let her down. Soon after arriving in the new world, Tempest discovers she is pregnant; the result of a rape she suffered at the hands of a high-ranking member of her church.

QuoteThe previously cast Fimmel will play Marcus, a roguish, charismatic soldier, who was the ultimate survivor back on Earth. To escape the doomed planet, Marcus and his wife Sue made a dangerous decision that they must keep secret at all costs.

Quote"I play Sue, and she's a combat medic caught up in a war between two main armies, all trying to survive because Earth has expelled all of its natural resources and oxygen levels are critical – it's terrifying but it's also what Ridley thinks people are anticipating about where our future might be heading!

And some concept art on the far right that might be of a future war-ravaged Earth. Picture of a busted-up Hind gunship as well:

And they were filming in old abandoned industrial buildings that will probably be for post-apocalyptic Earth scenes:

Haha, yes it was crazy, Ridley began working on that even before he began filming The Duelists. Eventually most of it was dropped in favour of a more traditional fantasy story namely Legend.

Pity it was never made though, but I can see the studio execs balking at most of that stuff. Maybe he should have self-funded it (ala Lucas) and asked Alejandro Jodorowsky to write it and Moebius to work as production designer with a bit of LSD on the side?

Yeah, i dont remember who said it in an interview. Maybe one of the model makers on Alien. But he said Ridley was filthy rich at the time, and lived in a castle. But, we got Alien instead. The very reason we are here. But it would be fun to visit that parallel univers where he made Tristian and Isolde, Dune and I am Legend.
Oooh, and Blood Meridian, its a shame that one never got made.
And Tripoli. Yeah, i wouldnt mind a day in that parallel univers, spending it just watching Ridley Scott movies.

Quote from: HollywoodreporterWarnerMedia, iHeartMedia to Produce Companion Podcasts for HBO Max Shows (Exclusive)

Comedy 'Search Party' and sci-fi drama 'Raised by Wolves' are the first TV series to get companion podcasts.
HBO Max's programming is getting the podcast treatment.


WarnerMedia and iHeartMedia have inked a deal to co-produce a slate of companion podcasts for the streamer's upcoming originals and legacy programming. The first two projects will be podcasts about comedy thriller Search Party, which is set to debut its third season on June 25, and upcoming sci-fi drama Raised by Wolves.

"Today's streaming fans are hungry for more content the second they finish an episode of their favorite shows, and podcasts are a great way to keep those fans engaged while also giving our roster of creative talent additional tools to extend the worlds of their shows and stories," said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max.

WarnerMedia's HBO has already dabbled in podcasting, recently releasing companion series to TV shows Chernobyl, Watchmen and McMillions. Like those podcasts, the new shows from WarnerMedia and iHeart will be available to stream on the HBO Max app. (Users can only listen to podcasts if the app is open and the screen is on, but WarnerMedia is planning to build new features that make it easier to listen on the go.) The new shows will also be available via iHeartRadio and other podcast platforms.

The deal, a first-look for iHeartMedia, also gives the companies the option to produce companion podcasts for WarnerMedia Entertainment TV networks including TNT, TBS and truTV. The entertainment conglomerate's Warner Bros. division already has an exclusive pact with Spotify for podcasts based on the DC universe and the studio's other IP franchises.

WarnerMedia and iHeart will both commit marketing resources to promote the podcasts and the TV programming. iHeart will lead ad sales and placement with input from WarnerMedia.

"WarnerMedia Entertainment's networks and brands have long been a marvel in the entertainment industry and we're ecstatic for the opportunity to be a part of their legendary storytelling and to bring this trove of new content to the iHeartPodcast Network," said Conal Byrne, president of iHeartPodcast Network.

Search Party, which aired on TBS for its first two seasons, was created by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers and Michael Showalter and stars Alia Shawkat, John Reynolds, Meredith Hagner and John Early. Raised by Wolves, which was originally developed for TNT before moving to HBO Max, will be directed and executive produced by Ridley Scott and tells the story of a pair of androids tasked with raising human children.

"WarnerMedia Entertainment's networks and brands have long been a marvel in the entertainment industry and we're ecstatic for the opportunity to be a part of their legendary storytelling and to bring this trove of new content to the iHeartPodcast Network," said Conal Byrne, president of iHeartPodcast Network.

Search Party, which aired on TBS for its first two seasons, was created by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers and Michael Showalter and stars Alia Shawkat, John Reynolds, Meredith Hagner and John Early. Raised by Wolves, which was originally developed for TNT before moving to HBO Max, will be directed and executive produced by Ridley Scott and tells the story of a pair of androids tasked with raising human children.

Not yet sure where he got them from but they all have a "Marché du Film" watermark. So likely from a Cannes film-festival reel.

Note the "Sol" cult banner, obviously a very powerful sect.






The stadium appears to be Cape Town Football Stadium. Which makes sense as they were shooting the series there:

Looks like Marcus (Fimmel) is part of the Sol cult then? With their shields, armour and white cloaks they kinda look like futuristic Templar Knights (also a religious warrior-monk order).

I see the RBW fan account also picked up on the Templar angle:

QuoteReminiscent here of the Knights Templar, with some Samauri influence added, as Ridley Scott has done in the past. Coincidence that the name of the character appears to

Brett Williams plays a character named "Payen", possibly the guy pictured. Hugues de Payens was the co-founder and first Grand Master of the Knights Templar. Always interesting digging into Ridley's mind.

That huge ship hovering over the arena scene is kinda reminiscent of the huge ship hovering over the Engineer city's arena in Alien: Covenant. Vastly different ship designs of course but both quite epic in scale.

Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jun 26, 2020, 08:51:46 PM
But that again begs the question, what could have shot them down? Would the two androids and the children have weaponry that could down a huge ship like that? Or was it one of the native lifeforms, which would be quite a scary proposition?

Or perhaps a fight onboard the ship itself between different factions that caused it to crash?

We never actually found out why David's Juggernaut crashed in Alien Covenant. Could have been Shaw who tried to stop him or could have been a battle with the large ship he docks with or perhaps surface to air missiles, who knows?

It probably bodes well if they have enough faith in the first season to greenlight the second season already, without having seen any audience ratings yet.

I wonder if Scott will be directing more episodes? Might be something to keep him occupied in between film projects.

DP Ross Emery about shooting Wolves.

QuoteHBO Max launched earlier this year, and one of the first big exclusives coming to the WarnerMedia OTT is Ridley Scott's new sci-fi show Raised by Wolves. DP Ross Emery speaks to Adrian Pennington about the show's high-concept visuals and working with Alien and Blade Runner director Scott.

In Ridley Scott's new sci-fi TV series, two androids arrive on an alien planet with a cargo of human embryos to start a new colony. Rather than go heavy on the high-concept visuals, Scott's approach was almost the opposite: to document the character's survival as if filming a lost tribe in the Amazon. 

"Ethnological" is how DP Ross Emery ACS describes it. "It's almost like shooting a doc about a tribe never before encountered by western civilisation in Brazil or Papua New Guinea. How would you capture their day to day activity?"

Raised By Wolves is one of the star acts scheduled to premiere on new streaming service HBO Max. Scott helmed the first two of the ten episodes (his first direction for TV) and exec produced Aaron Guzikowski's script through his company Scott Free.

"This is not a continuation of the world building done with Alien in Prometheus and Covenant but I still feel this is in the same universe as those worlds," says Emery, who was second unit photographer on The Matrix and Alien: Covenant, and cinematographer on The Wolverine. "Ridley is particularly interested in using androids as an analogue for the human race and questioning what happens if we elevate the humans who created the androids to the status of god."

The notion of androids attaining consciousness is territory Scott has visited before, most poignantly in Blade Runner but also in the Alien series (from the duplicitous secret agent Ash in the original Alien to the hyper evolved but no less duplicitous David 8 in Alien: Covenant).

"No one has ever seen anything like this before," Emery promises.

Scott's regular cinematographer Dariusz Wolski lensed episode one with Emery sharing photography of the others with Erik Messerschmidt, ASC (Mindhunter).

"Ridley is the starting point," Emery says. "He does a lot of concept designs and a lot of his own storyboards. You take that and learn the rules of the world he's building.  For instance, this is a futuristic world where technology is unrecognisable to people from 2019."

Actors often compose their own back story for characters but Scott tasked wardrobe, props and production design to think about the origin of anything that would appear on screen.

"If there was any technology that was noticeably familiar from our world then he would tell us to dial back," Emery says. "We used a lot of artificial light sources, LEDs and organic plasmas, but made sure they had a backstory. How would that light have been brought to the planet?

"It's about not making any misstep. Stanley Kubrick ensured that on Barry Lyndon all the interiors were candlelit so that you can't feel any light that's artificial to the period.

"We're capturing the day to day life of characters who have been washed up on a desert island. They have only managed to take limited resources with them on the space craft so the world is a cross between extremely advanced and the stone age."

Even the planet's name, Keplar-22b, is the same as an actual exoplanet 600 light-years from Earth which NASA has identified as the most habitable yet discovered.

"When you are selling a quite preposterous premise - which all sci-fi can be – then the more you can ground the vision the more believable it will be to the audience," Emery says.

He continues: "Everybody thinks sci-fi and then chooses the most hi-res 8K resolution and large format sensor they can find. We had a lot of discussion about that and decided we don't want to be a crazy 'out there' world. You want it to feel that it has a human touch." 

That led to the selection of ARRI Alexa as the main camera shooting 3.5K ARRIRAW through Panavision Super Speeds and Primos in a fairly conventional manner.

"We had some Steadicam but we didn't want a lot of crazy camera movement. Ridley felt a low-tech capture was more effective for the story."

The dramatized documentary approach, using zooms, also worked for the majority cast of child actors.  "You want them not to notice the camera and to deliver a natural performance," Emery says.

VR rig
With some scenes requiring more than a dozen characters with dialogue, Emery had the editing process on his mind too. "Manufacturing intricate camera moves can end up boxing the editor in in terms of how they want to tell the story," he says.

However, flashback sequences told from the android's point of view, were shot with a VR rig of seven 4K GoPro cameras in 360-degrees.

"It's a way of capturing their world view without appearing like that of the Terminator," he explains. "The VR rig gave an aspherical view of the set, like an ultra-wide 1mm lens. Once you move it through a space you are changing perspective all the time and you have the ability to see the actor's ears and feet and what is directly above them. It took a lot of unlearning traditional camera rules." 

The VR sequences were used in post to zoom in, pan or tilt into any part of the image to convey the android's attempt to rationalise what has happened in the past.

Subtle shooting
Raised by Wolves was shot in studios at Cape Town and on location in a remote desert location north of the city.  To reduce the VFX count, therefore the budget, they favoured a 100m x 30m painted backdrop, over bluescreen.

"That meant we could use mist and smoke effects, which is something you can't do so well on bluescreen," Emery says.

As the story develops, the camera framing alters subtly too to reflect the android's growing awareness of their existence.

"They are not necessarily becoming human but as the AI experiences more it begins to process the emotional reactions from the humans. There's one essential question: are android's capable of emotion? The answer is that they can process the stimulai the same way as humans and come up with a reaction to it which, in its simplest terms, is that of an emotion."

To chart this development, the camera shifts progressively closer to the performances of Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim as Mother and Father.

"We see them first on long wide lenses but progressively we shoot them more like a human being, or a character in an emotional state," Emery says.

Working with Ridley Scott is a dream come true for the Australian whose recalls being taken to see Blade Runner as a 16-year old by his father (the cinematographer Ossie Emery ACS).

"That film got me wanting to become a cinematographer," he says. "Getting to work on Alien: Covenant and to shoot the alien with all its teeth and gel was such a buzz.

"In my job I get to watch an awful lot of films and it's remarkable how the power of an image stays with you. I think that's a particular talent that photographers and cinematographers have, a powerful visual memory. Even if you're out shopping for milk and you notice the way the sunlight comes through the window, or how a car's headlights turn around a corner, you'll file it away and sometime somewhere you can recall it for use in a scene."

Well, thanks to Mr. Eighth Passenger, the most remarkable scholar in Scott carrer at AVPGalaxy, I am aware of Ridley's habit of reuse his past ideas in future projects. The image bellow David in front the mirror plus Sibylla in kingdom of heaven. Both reflecting a grotesque image of themselves, perhaps revealing their real nature.

Its what Francis Bacon did in his portraits. https://medium.com/@apitargue/francis-bacon-and-the-art-of-a-dark-portrait-2a916697c471#:~:text=Study%20for%20Henrietta%20Moraes%20(1969) (https://medium.com/@apitargue/francis-bacon-and-the-art-of-a-dark-portrait-2a916697c471#:~:text=Study%20for%20Henrietta%20Moraes%20(1969))

I don't think that distorted and mutilated faces have anything to do with the lack of sexual scenes, and they are most definitely not a way of compensation for that.There is a greater symbolism there. Distorted face mean - distorted soul or distorted psychological image, because faces are directly related to our perception of persons, thus by destroying someones face, you destroy his or hers identity ... etc.

That's so true. Also, mainstream originality vs. artist originality is a misunderstood concept; like mainstream theory vs. scientific theory. An artist needs to study and even deconstruct solid references from others before him. The originality is in how you use them. That being said, I don't mean it is a bad thing for an artist to reuse or reimagine their previous concepts.

It is clear that he went back to some of his original source of inspiration, which is Moebius and Enki Bilal.

Well Prometheus is a more fast paced movie comparing it to the Original Alien.

The nature of a TV-show is that you got more time for character development. Some shows might even have to much character and not enough story.
But TV-series has a lot of tropes, filler episodes, multiple storylines, flashbacks etc. It just depends on how good they execute them.

And you say you dont hope we end up with 10 hrs of Prometheus, but remember that Prometheus was very split between who liked it and who didnt. So saying 10 hrs of Prometheus is not necessary a bad thing just because it wasnt to your liking ;)

Actually I'd welcome a 10 hours Prometheus myself. I would mute it, put my headphones on (maybe some Isis) and enjoy it solely for it's visuals.

Prometheus is a fascinating mess of a movie. The script in nonsensical and the editing is even worse, but visually it is unparalleled and I'm very intrigued by the ideas it presents (even if they thematically contradict the intention of the original film). Covenant, in my opinion, improved on Prometheus by getting even weirder with the material, and actually competently putting the movie together. Where Prometheus played things safer, Covenant went wild, detached itself from any pre-conceived notions people might have held about the franchise, and told a story that explored some concepts that I find really exciting.

I'm all for this being eight or so hours of an unhinged Ridley throwing his ideas at the screen. I just hope that, if there is a season two, Ridley actually remains involved and directs a couple more episodes. I know he's a busy man with a hundred projects up his sleeve and would never stick around to be a proper showrunner, but him directing a few more episodes if this is a hit would be very exciting. If this does get a second season, I also wouldn't be shocked if the budget is expanded on from this first one; remember, this first season wasn't actually made for HBO Max. This was a TNT show, so basic cable.

I was reading through a Moebius Heavy Metal graphic novel called Arzach the other day and came upon a scene where a guy morphs into a very Alien looking egg. Published in 1976. So I guess we now know where the egg morphing scene comes from if it was not already known.

Assuming one ever comes. Streaming services tend to be very hit and miss with releasing their original content on physical media. If it is out there in other ways, that is less incentive to keep your monthly subscription going.

Though I will say, things are looking better now than they did a few years ago. Netflix has struck a deal with Criterion, for example. I just grabbed Marriage Story on Blu-ray and will be getting The Irishman later in the year.

I agree about a second season. David Fincher directed 5 episodes of Mindhunter: 2 in S1 and 3 in S2. I think Ridley Scott could do that and Ridley Scott works way faster than Fincher. Fincher makes 10000 takes like Kubrick. Ridley Scott makes 2 takes like Clint Eastwood.

Colonists escaping a doomed Earth, an android with ulterior motives, wolf allegories, alien creatures running around...

It honestly looks like Ridley was told he couldn't do any more Alien prequels, so he just took his ideas somewhere else. I picture him being interviewed later and stating "Swap the villain in Raised By Wolves for David and you can get an idea of where I was planning to go."

Though if that was the case, I don't know why he wouldn't be up front about it right now.

Either way, this looks awesome and I'm excited.

To those who were asking about how this could be watched in places that don't have HBO Max, it might be worth checking your local TNT station. I just stumbled upon this during a YouTube search. It seems that in Spain, TNT España will be distributing the show. Maybe HBO Max acquiring it is just a United States thing?

This was shot inside the Good Hope Center in Cape Town, see earlier post: https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=60788.msg2365848#msg2365848 (https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=60788.msg2365848#msg2365848)

I assume it is a religious building/temple for the Sol cult, almost like the Dome of Rock in Jerusalem which also has a huge rock inside as a center piece.

This one has almost a 70's sci-fi feel to it but with the addition of modern hologram VFX.

Looks like some kind of custom made lute. Similar to this replica of an ancient Egyptian lute but much bigger. She probably made it by herself or found it?

It does look similar and not really surprising since there are lots of African influences in that picture. And yeah probably made by herself as well.

Always liked the way Ridley juxtaposes futuristic high tech with primitive elements in his sci-fi films.

The first thing that came to mind when i saw those mud buildings was Exodus.
They have some REALLY similar sets.

The fun thing is that Ridley def got a style of his own. And small things always reappear.

On a different note. I kinda miss the look Ridley got when using Red camera. I always prefered the look of the RED as suppose to the Alexa. That more green/yellow-ish tint. But now this is just getting nerdy :P

Wouldn't the tint be more indicative of the colour grading added in post? Or were you comparing RAW camera footage from the Making of documentaries?

To my eyes the Prometheus (Epic Red) Blu-Ray appears a tad sharper and less grainy than Alien: Covenant (Arri Alexa). But that again could simply be due to the transfer process/compression.




Old post of Ingwar that I dug up with a link in which Wolski explains why he switched from RED to Alexa:

Quote from: Ingwar on Jun 06, 2017, 08:02:16 PM
QuoteFor the production, Wolski paired Arri Alexa XT and Mini cameras — recording ArriRaw files — with Angenieux Optimo DP Rouge 16- 42mm (T2.8 ) and 30-80mm (T2.8 ) zooms, a Panavision 19-90mm (T2.8 ) Primo Compact Zoom, and Panavision PVintage primes.

QuoteHow does that factor of 3D versus 2D influence your selection of camera?
Wolski:
We definitely started using the Red Epic on Prometheus because its size made the 3D rigs much smaller and more flexible. For Alien: Covenant all the cameras were Alexas, which has really become the most reliable, consistent camera as far as I'm concerned. The problem with all these new cameras coming out is that things are changing so fast you have to spend all your time testing, figuring out the workflow and everything else.

From my experience shooting with RED and Alexa there is a subtle difference in color science.
Now you can grade the image to look alike by changing the Tint, but if you keep the original color science there is a difference.

This is getting geeky now. But the Alexa kinda has a more orange look to warmer hues, while the RED has more of a yellow lime ish look.
I associate it most with Fincher actually.

And you are correct about the look on Covenant vs Prometheus. I noticed from the first trailer that they changed cameras.
I will post one picture from Covenant and some other pics from other Ridley projects shot on RED for comparison.

Couldnt find any pictures, but notice the opening scene of All the money in the world also.

Interesting. I read Ridley Scott only made 3 with RED: PROMETHEUS, THE COUNSELOR and EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS. The weird thing is I prefer RED EPIC over Arri Alexa too. THE MARTIAN had both: Arri Alexas and RED Epic Dragons

From the BTS pics i have seen from The Martian, it looks like it was all shot on RED.
And IMDB does not list the Alexa,

I actually like that lime tint that you sometimes get on the RED.
I mostly shot with the Angenieux 25-250, fun vintage lens.

But we made one sci-fi space, Prometheus/Covenant inspired film when i went to film school. Wanted to get experience with cheating the sets and get most value of the studio we occupied.

Too bad i casted some bad actors thought.

But again, always been inspired by Ridley. The way he uses his sets, if i didnt have my Ridley knowledge we would never have managed to do it.

I am getting sligthly off topic now :P

They had pretty big rigs thought. But the Alexa shoots in 3,2k and the RED Dragon shoots in 6K.

I mean, none of the spec sites lists any Alexa, and Dariuz doesnt even bring it up in the 24 interview he did with Collider for the movie.

That's why they'd shoot the "big scenes" in RED -- nice big plates for VFX and reframing in post. You don't need to worry about that so much when filming people sitting around a table talking, as happens a few times throughout.

Prometheus is listed as using both Alexa and Red Epic. Could be the source of confusion.

Also, you will recall that The Martian was shot native 3D. That means twin rigs on top of every tripod head: i.e. dual camera bodies, dual lenses, etc. Plus, Scott is well known for shooting multiple cameras (in this case, that means multiple rigs) for simultaneous camera angles. That's gotta take up a lot of space! Could be that the smaller Red form factor assisted for the rig builds. (Although Arri might have had it's Alexa Mini out by 2015. Not sure about that.)

Incidentally, Prometheus was also native 3D. Covenant was intended for the same treatment but I believe budget cuts got in the way. Besides, post-3D had gotten much better by then.

Thats really wierd. Nothing on the IMDB spec says anything about the Alexa.

I mean. It just doesnt make sense to me actually. Maybe they captured the Africa flashback, or the Hologram Engineers with the Alexa. Or MAYBE they just completley WRONG because it doesnt make any sense at all.

When Prometheus came out the RED was the shit, with the 3D rigg also. And Dariuz praised the RED so much. And both in The Martian and on the Prometheus BTS it is no sign of an Alexa anywhere. I just checked the B-rolls. One tell is that they got different interfaces with specs on the Monitors. Its a subtle difference, but it is there.

Arri and RED are competators, so lets say they want a sweet deal with the RED gear for Prometheus, they would likley give them a good deal, as its good promotion for them. And the RED logo is in the end credits, didnt recgonize the Alexa logo.

I think maybe there is some misinformation out there. Because again i cant make any sense WHY they should use both cameras   xD  xD  xD  xD

It sounds like Ridley was keen on shooting it in 3D but then the studio decided the fad was over but then later did a u-turn again:

QuoteAnother difference between Covenant and Prometheus is that you didn't shoot in 3D this time.

Scott: I wanted to shoot Covenant in 3D, but somebody supposedly wiser than us up there decided that the days of 3D might be over, and therefore we didn't do that. Now, of course, it's finished and somebody mumbled, 'Can we do this in 3D?' I said, 'Well, it's a bit late, dude.'

Wolski: For me, it was great going back to old-school filmmaking and shooting Covenant in 2D. The first Alien was 2D. I do think that initially my experience with 3D was a big part of why Ridley was interested in me for Prometheus. That was a huge challenge, shooting 3D with those multiple cameras Ridley favors. At that time there was a big trend toward shooting everything in 3D, and I think it was largely because of economics — because Avatar had made so much money. Everybody thought the whole world was going to turn 3D, but I never believed in that.

Scott: I don't think 3D is going to go away. I love it, because we actually see in 3D. In your head, you've basically got two cameras side by side separated by the width of your nose. When you film and project 3D properly, it's not a barrier; it's taking you back to something you've been used to since birth. There's still a lot to be explored there. One thing that would have been nice to do on The Martian would have been to shoot all the interiors in 2D, then when he goes outside flip to 3D. But we can't do that yet.

Yes. If you wanted to capture large scenes with stunts wide and be able to reframe, or get large plates for VFX and needed a higher resolution it makes sense to not use a 3.2K camera.

Not everybody does it and I'm not saying it was done in this situation, but using different cameras, lenses and stocks to create VFX shots compared to the dramatic scenes has been a common practice for decades.

Helll, I'm doing it on my next project. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (the original D16mm version) with vintage lenses for dramatic scenes, BMPCC4K with Canon cine primes or VFX shots.

It's 100% a thing people do.

When the RED camera is visable during every BTS video and image, it doesnt make sense that they used the Alexa for smaller scenes :P
When they got the RED :P
The large format camera.

Hell i am shooting on the BMPCC 4k with vintage lenses too. We got the 4k, we are not gonna switch to the original BMPCC camera when we got the 4k :P

Thats what doesnt make sense. I know u can shoot VFX with more high end cameras. But it doesnt make sense that hey used a 3.2K camera when every BTS footage shows that they shoot on the RED :P


I highly doubt they said: All right boys, lets put those 6K / 8K cameras we rented for the whole shoot, in the corner and switch to a larger heavier 3.2k camera for this small intimate scene. And BTW Ridley want five of those too. Its hella expensive but hey, we want to use another camera for this scene, just because we can...

The original and the 4K have very different sensors and produce notably different images. I prefer the image on the original, which is why we're using that as the primary camera. It also couples together with the Zeiss Mk 1 Primes and vintage soviet lenses I have better than the 4K to create a 16mm film look.

And that's exactly why even big film productions switch between the two cameras. The DP may prefer the qualities of one camera and want to use it as much as possible, and switch to another for technical reasons when they have to. Again, this has been fairly common practice for decades.

EDIT

Technical or creative reasons, I should've said.

My original pocket cam is worn the hell out. Its been used a lot, so it has some personality to it these days. Battery glitches and all that fun stuff.

I invested in the URSA 4k just before the Pocket 4k came out, talking about throwing away money. Now its just decor for the living room.

But vintage lenses on Digital cameras can be a lot of fun.
But i stick to my angenieux 25-250. I like to shoot fast so it helps a lot.

According to Cinefex #153 the six Epic Dragons were used for VFX backgrounds for aerial footage from Milford Sound, New Zealand. The images were stitched together to make a very high resolution equivalent of an 11mm lens, which served as bg for the lander over-flying the terrain. With such hi-rez footage, they could crop a smaller window moving around the combined plate, simulating camera pans and tilts, appropriate to the flightpath of the lander which was composited on top.

U gonna use some 16mm grain overlay or film convert?
It's t's tempting, but we'll see how much noise comes out of the 800ISO footage before I go too crazy :D

When the RED camera is visable during every BTS video and image, it doesnt make sense that they used the Alexa for smaller scenes :P
When they got the RED :P
The large format camera.

Hell i am shooting on the BMPCC 4k with vintage lenses too. We got the 4k, we are not gonna switch to the original BMPCC camera when we got the 4k :P

Thats what doesnt make sense. I know u can shoot VFX with more high end cameras. But it doesnt make sense that hey used a 3.2K camera when every BTS footage shows that they shoot on the RED :P


I highly doubt they said: All right boys, lets put those 6K / 8K cameras we rented for the whole shoot, in the corner and switch to a larger heavier 3.2k camera for this small intimate scene. And BTW Ridley want five of those too. Its hella expensive but hey, we want to use another camera for this scene, just because we can...

Most behind the scenes I saw had the Arri Alexa.
Usually Post house like the Red for doing C Cam VFX related stuff because for two reasons:
-extra resolution (even if it's not perceptually sharper because the actual gain is kind of a lie since you need to multiply the camera (especially Red) photosites by 0.7 to obtain the actual debayering resolution which is what Arri always gives you as a technical detail which is also why you had such number as 2.8k for the Classic EV and 3.2K for the current Alev III gen which both correspond to 4K acquisition and 5K. Both codec could easily be re-warp into higer res with no trouble and compete against a Red.) is useful for tracking shots and the deep learning love the pixels. It's not necessary sharper but it's definitely giving a bit of a boost in these areas that requires intense motion datas.
-Real time playback. Arri is pure 12bit log or 16 bit linear footage. A lot of highend production choose to shoot with Arriraw which is very CPU intensive and has very limited GPU support even if it got better in recent years. When you're doing VFX, you need all the speed you can and Redcode Raw is super fast. I can easily playback 8K debayered at Full Res on my Color Grading station (32 Thread) and is super NVIDIA friendly which is what the industry loves.

Not everything is about resolution, in fact very little considering you likely saw Covenant in 2K (even if you were advertised for 4K Imax, it's likely they just oversampled a bit the master file like we always do because... truth is your eyes can't see a thing beyond that resolution and what got better in recent years are bandwidth, contrast and bit depth which all three account for far more details preserved than resolution [I strongly advise you watch Steve Yedlin technical demo about this, it's very well explained]).
The Alexa still has unmatched capability in terms of sensitivity which is why a lot of DoP prefers it over the Red. That being said a lot of the difference has shrinken in the last year, so much that the BMPCC4K almost felt like an Alexa on the shoot (they both share the same sensor manufacturer "ON Semic Conducter" after all, blackmagic is kind of the little cousin to Arri) but where Arri shine most is the form factor. Red sucks for that, it overheat, the cable management is a pain and their camera feels made in "to be broken soon" while you can easily feel when holding an alexa that it may fall from an Helicopter or Burn in an accident and the camera may still be pretty okay aside the cosmetic look.

I'm just hoping I get through this project with mine. Sometimes it doesn't recognise the power is plugged in which is stressful to say the least.

I really don't like what they've done with the look from the new cameras so I'm resisting the upgrade as long as I can. If only the digital bolex hadn't died as quickly as it did ...

Kinda Off Topic but...
Just finished a feature film this summer with the Pocket 4K as a DP, kind of a first to use this camera.
loved it all the way, its latitude is wide enough so the camera can be repurposed as any look desired.
We went in Prep with a 35mm look in mind. Could have increase the LPF and adjusted the grain to match my favorite 16mm stock though.

I loved the original Pocket for sure but I do feel the BMPCC4K is a step up... or a cross step between their original BMCC 4K (the body looks very similar) and the Pocket. But they all have tragic form factor, never had so much pain in cable management and good thing we had a lot of spare on the shoot.

I don't own a BMPCC but I looked at your node graph anyway. Maybe I can learn something!

So you shot a Blackmagic RAW or some kind of ProRes LOG profile but preferred the AlexaLog node to bring it to Rec709. Is this better than the standard BMD LUT?

Is it normal to put the Kodak 23(83) LUT in the middle instead of at the end?

Prometheus trailer ;D

Also ...

QuoteIt's a brave new world created by Aaron Guzikowski, who says he got the idea when he became a father.

"The big spark that really helped me find my way into this world was the idea of the androids," he says. "And I think it was when I had kids of my own, and just seeing technology kind of encroaching on them, for better or for worse.

"And also myself, just carrying this phone around all the time and just wondering someday maybe this phone is gonna carry ME around. Who knows where this is all going? And what does this mean for my kids?"

British actor Abubakar Salim, who plays the father android, says at first he had no idea how an automaton would act. But he was eased into the role by workshopping the voice and cadence with Scott, who directed the first two episodes.

"We had at least I think a good two or three weeks of rehearsing and working the actual character and making sure that we felt grounded with him," says Salim.

"I mean a lot of that, of the evolution of the paternal instincts and everything came from — I guess for me the way of seeing it was no one really knows how to be a parent the first time, right? So that was what was quite exciting. It's like how does an android — even though they have all this information — know to be a parent even though they have to work off the cuff?"

Scott had examined the script and responded to it, recalls Guzikowski.

"And apparently soon after he had read it, he had just started drawing pictures, storyboarding. So as soon as I had heard that, it was beyond exciting to me ... Before I was even interested in making movies or TV or anything, I was obsessed with the stories that Ridley was telling. So it is a dream. It's been great. And he hasn't disappointed in terms of just his generosity, in terms of just being a great mentor, he's been great."

As for Scott, he relishes the challenge.

"I really do like creating worlds and try and make them as accurately as possible because in a way, it's almost like an additional character," he says.

"I enjoy the rock-and-roll of the whole process of making films and I find it very exciting, and I'm very fortunate to be able to do it and it's a wonderful occupation."

Guzikowski sees a thread between his work and Scott's.

"There was a lot of exchange of DNA between a lot of the mythologies that Ridley has established in the past, and this new story," he says. "But I think a lot of the rules that apply to these androids and the questions that they bring up are similar to going as far back to Ash from 'Alien' in 1977. There are some similarities there."

David W. Zucker, one of the show's producers, says, "Aaron's material came in as a spec (script) and, as Ridley always says, if it's there on the page and he responds to it — which he did with this — then it just begins to gestate in his mind.

"The exciting thing was the first time Aaron and Ridley came together, both of them — being fine artists — Ridley was working on some of his visual inspiration for the piece, and started slowly sharing it with Aaron. And then before we knew it, the two of them were drawing right next to each other and evolving their ideas. So, it was a very exciting sort of collaboration, from start to finish."

Danish actress Amanda Collin was cast as the android mother.

She says the first day on set with Salim, they weren't quite sure what to do.

"Abu and I looked at each other and we're like, 'I think the first scene we're just supposed to walk.' And we looked at each other and we were like, 'How, how do we walk? How do we walk as androids?' And we just walked. And so little by little, stuff came along ... and then you start to incorporate the whole animalistic kind of way of moving, and it was a great joy to just keep discovering the senses of an android."

Hard to tell, you might be right. This is also interesting: the same boy, the one with Fimmel as cult leader, is sitting next to android's children (?) who are now older. One boy (or girl?) among them has got different outfit.

Interview with Father, Abubakar Salim.

Spoilers!

QuoteRaised By Wolves is just stunning. You're the man of the hour right now—or you're about to be. You must be so thrilled with how everything turned out.

Oh man, ridiculous amount. I'm a massive, massive sci-fi nerd so this is absolutely my jam. And it's not even just getting to be a part of this sci-fi world. Because it's complex, right? You've seen it. There's a lot of themes explored. There's a lot of complexity to it. There's a lot of levels and layers to it. I'm still pinching myself every now and then. Honestly, I love it.

They unlocked the first three episodes to the press pack. Have you seen all ten?

No, I've only seen up to three. But knowing where the journey is going, you guys are literally going to lose your minds. I can't even begin to express where this story takes you. It's wild.

The worldbuilding is on another level. In Ridley Scott we trust, right? Take me through your journey to getting here. They probably looked at everyone under the sun to cast Father.

To begin with, I had it come through to me in LA. I'd just finished Jamestown, which was my first TV show where I was playing a series regular. I remember doing that and getting this, thinking, "Okay, yeah, sure. I'm definitely not going to get this." It's Ridley Scott! I remember sending my tape to my managers and they were very much of the mentality like, "Wow. This is strong. This is bold." And when I say strong and bold, I'm not saying as if they were impressed. They were like, "This is a very daring take on it. I don't know if we can send this." [laughs] Anyways, we ended up sending it and when I landed in the UK, I got a call saying, "Ridley really loved the tape and he would love to meet you." So the next round was meeting him, which was spending at least 45 minutes with him just talking to me. I remember thinking, "I gotta know this back to front, back to front. I have to know the script really, really well. No mistakes, no mistakes. Sir Ridley, Sir Ridley." He's this lovely, lovely human being. We're just talking about the work, talking about the other stuff I've done. I'm talking about the character, we're talking in-depth about Father, and Ridley's giving me direction. From then on, I ended up doing several tapes at home on my own time and sending it out to him. It was a lot of back-and-forth because Scott Free and TNT were still trying to place Father. They didn't know what kind of character they wanted out of him, especially when it's counterbalanced to someone like Mother. Amanda Collin does an incredible performance so it's almost like trying to balance that and trying to come to something that works with that, which is a challenge in itself. There were a lot of rounds to it. Another thing that happened was, they kept asking me at round five or six if I'd be comfortable in a latex suit. I remember thinking to myself, "This has turned from a Ridley Scott production to something else." [laughs] Then they ended up helping me get in all the training and stuff, so on and so forth. It was only after I landed in South Africa and filmed episode one, or one block anyway, that I realized, "f**k. I got the part."

You bring up the suit. It doesn't look very comfortable if I'm being honest.

Oh my god, it was definitely a challenge. The thing is, these latex suits were tailor-made. They measure you out, then squeeze you in it. You cover yourself in talcum powder and lube. To begin with, it was lube, which was weird, and then it became talcum powder. I did at times feel like a giant condom. It was definitely a difficult costume to wear. At the same time, it really helped me perform the character, right? It holds you in a certain position. It makes you feel a certain way.

Science and religion are at loggerheads in this explicit and deliberate way on the show. From the get-go, Mother instills in the children defining ideas: there is no imaginary deity—only science. What Mother nurtures is this imperative: live as technocratic atheists and guarantee progress for humankind. Do you think the show might court some controversy about questioning the validity of faith, or does it in fact value religion as much as it does science?

Honestly, it fights both camps, right? Mother and Father are trying to instill this atheist sort of mentality, like you said, about a progression forward. There's that camp of thinking. But then also you've got Campion [Mother and Father's sole-surviving child, played by Winta McGrath] who, even though he's been taught all this stuff, naturally, he begins to pray, trying to find faith. As a human being, you have to form your own thoughts, right? Campion begins discovering his own beliefs. I think it becomes, rather than a question of whether religion is right or wrong, more about the base human traits of belief and faith. I think that's what's interesting. Campion, who's been exposed to the idea of atheism has been, really, almost brainwashed in the idea of how bad religion is. At the same time, you've also got these religious people causing devastation and saying horrendous things. So it poses them both against each other. That's what Aaron [Guzikowski, writer and creator] does brilliantly, because he doesn't present it to you like, "Religion is bad" or "Atheism is bad." He actually makes you see both sides of the coin. He makes you go, "Let me get a deeper understanding of this and let me understand." So it might cause controversy to someone who doesn't necessarily see it that way, but most of all, I hope that the audience takes the time and pause and observe and talk about it. Look at us. We're talking about it now, right? These are the kinds of conversations I would love to have happen when people are watching this show. I'd love for someone to be like, "Yo, they just literally said that atheism is the right thing. We're following this killing machine who's an atheist, and that's wrong," and someone else will come back being like, "I actually saw it the other way. I'm actually seeing atheism almost as a religion." We have this debate. We'll have it ever so lightly at maybe dinner parties, which I don't recommend by the way. I do think it's something that will trigger a lot of people into talking about it.

There was literally an applause burst in my head every time Mother took her necromantic form. It's interesting that this atheistic "killing machine," as you rightly put it, has the posture of divinity—arms stretched out like Jesus on the cross, levitating. These are the areas where things overlap for me, and it's certainly a subjective reading. The necromancer also reminds me so much of the Machine-Person character from Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

These are things, I think, Ridley spoke to Amanda about a lot. But when I was in the room and they were talking about this creation—the thing that destroyed humanity—I can only remember Ridley saying, "She's very much like a ballet dancer." [laughs] The definition of the muscles, the sort of elegance, and the movement are very much that of a ballet dancer. I remember that being really, really striking. He pulled up an image of a ballet dancer in quite a powerful pose. There was a feeling of it that almost looked identical to the necromancer that we see now and it was incredibly powerful. I remember seeing that and thinking, "God, I've never seen this before either."

I'm sure the ballet reference was succinct direction from Ridley that Amanda could really play from. Was there any particular direction from Ridley that helped you to play Father?

Yeah. When Ridley spoke about the character, he mentioned a lot about cadence—the musicality of how Father speaks. That was a real strength to pull into the character of who Father is: finding the tempo within him, and using that to influence and explore what his character is like. Because even though he's this android who is making all these terrible jokes at terrible times, there's something as well about him that is efficient and clean. There is a reason why he was selected to do what he does and to protect the children, and raise the children to a degree. So that's something that really helped—when Ridley directed me anyway—in regards to Father. It's the fact that, not only is he an older model and resilient, there was an inner tempo to him that I needed to find. And once we found it, it just felt like a dream playing him.

I understand that you got into acting in the first place because, where storytelling is concerned, you were inspired by video games—not film and TV.

Absolutely.

So whereas someone else, a typical actor, might reference classic movies and performances, for you it's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You seldom find that in actors, and it's refreshing in a way. Did you ever actively pursue opportunities in video game performance prior to getting that job on Assassin's Creed: Origins?

Not at all, no. I actually fell into Assassin's Creed by accident. I knew about video games and I really wanted to get into voice acting—I actually ended up getting a voice agent before Assassin's Creed—but Assassin's Creed came through my acting agent. I remember auditioning for it, not knowing it was Assassin's Creed. Finding out that it was, I had my mind blown by it. Video games have such a massive influence on a lot of things I do. Hell, I just opened a game studio in quarantine and I'm making my first game at the moment. I'm designing my first game, working with a team of people to create this story world and build this universe. For me, there's such a powerful force to telling stories through video games because you're interactively in that story with the protagonist or whomever you play. I thought that is so crucial in regards to how powerful that can be, in regards to teaching or just giving you a real fun experience and making people feel. The way that I see it is that I didn't necessarily pursue acting in video games until after Assassin's Creed because, to be honest, I didn't know much about it. It's not really spoken about in drama school or with friends and all this other stuff. It was after falling into it and being open to that world that I began learning a hell a lot about it.

How will you make the time, running a gaming company alongside your acting pursuits?

I don't know if you know, my man, but I am an android. So actually, I can do it? [laughs] No, that's a good question. I've got a brilliant group of people working at the moment in the game studio who know the vision I have and know the stories I want to tell. All I have to do is make sure that they understand the vision so they can execute. I've got head of studio, Melissa Phillips, who is me but a lot more in on the producer side of things. She's basically the second me whenever I need to leave to do acting, and that's the way it will sort of work. I'm one of those weird people who just never sleeps. I enjoy that creative work. I play a lot of games. I'm able to communicate ideas quite quickly. That helps. The team is also very aware of the fact that I do have an acting career and I do have something going on there. Ultimately, my job is to make sure that the people who are in their key roles—the lead artists, the lead game designer, the lead programmers, the lead level designers—know what I'm trying to do. And I think they all do.

I learned that you're a first generation Brit and both of your parents immigrated from Kenya. Did filming Raised By Wolves in the Motherland feel symbolic in any way?

Yeah, it's funny actually. So Africa is big, right? I think the flight between Cape Town and Kenya is like eight hours. I used to go to Kenya a lot as a kid. Going to Cape Town, you kind of do see similarities in the cultures, depending on where you go, depending on the areas. It was very beautiful working in Africa, working in Cape Town, and working with a crew of people who are actually a lot more diverse than what we'd get in London or what we'd get in Budapest or somewhere. There was something really lovely about that. There was also something really lovely about playing a lead role and also being in that position where we're all working towards making this beautiful project. I really got on with the crew from South Africa a lot. It just felt natural. It felt like a really beautiful space to play and be in, do you know what I mean? But of course, even with South Africa, as with the industry itself, there are elements or spaces for it to be improved on. I think we're getting there.

Were you also on sound stages out there?

We were at the Cape Town Film Studios. There were definitely sets the crew masterfully built to make it look like an alien sort of space. The crazy flight scenes and the stuff in the ships were filmed in there, which is really awesome.

Again, I'm only three episodes in. I can't imagine what's to come.

Honestly, dude? It's bold, it's daring, it's exciting—it's just everything, man. I feel like there is no other show like this on TV. I don't even say that lightly, man. Aaron is such a visionary. And alongside Ridley? This was meant to be, bro. [laughs] It's crazy.

By the way, I saw a snippet of of your conversation with Paul Rudd for BAFTA. He said this to you in regards to acting: "Like everything else, you learn by doing." What was one important takeaway from Raised By Wolves on that front?

The one thing I learned from Raised By Wolves is that, in a role like that where I'm playing alongside someone like Amanda as a lead, it's okay to make mistakes. It's okay to screw up. It's okay to rely on other people as well to sort of help. I think a lot of the time people do think that because you are the lead or you are in an important role that there's no space for mistakes, no space to have fun and to play, and that you come in and you know your stuff and you gotta do it. Of course know your lines, absolutely, and know the world you're in, but I think there is space for you to play, and to be daring and try something new. I think that was really solidified on set. I think a lot of the time people try to come on perfect. I remember for a while I used to do that. But having worked with someone like Ridley where it's better to play and it's better to collaboratively work on something, that was a big lesson I learned from the whole process.

This is by no means a two-hander, but you guys are the anchor as Mother and Father. It sounds like the trust you put in each other was really essential and key to getting it right.

Oh, a hell of a lot. A hell of a lot. It's because of the fact that Amanda was so open and so cool about talking and playing with these characters. We're trying to learn what an android is in this world, right? There are so many different iterations of androids. We were trying to discover what makes it our own, and that was quite tricky to do on your own. Whereas together, we could come up with certain rules or certain ideas to play. Also, you know from talking to the rest of the cast, getting a vibe and feel from their characters. We were quite a close-knit cast. We hung out a lot after work. We still talk as well. We've got a WhatsApp group where we keep chatting. The whole world was a lot of building with all of us together, do you know what I mean? That's what was really crucial in making this world so rich and believable.

Back to that other thing: when can we expect your game? Have you announced the IP?

Ah ha! It's so secret at the moment. I'd love to tell you, but the studio would kill me if I did. I really cannot wait to talk about it because, again, it's a world I'm building and want to bring that no one has ever seen before in the space of video games. Honestly, man. Give me a call when we're ready and I'll tell you everything about it.

The weekly release is a much better format IMO. Keep the discussion going for an extended period of time, rather than having everyone watch it and then move on in a weekend.

Most likely, the Wadi Rum footage we saw in Exodus were actually outtakes from Prometheus. No new Wadi Rum footage was shot for that film. I also haven't seen any evidence that new Wadi Rum footage was shot specifically for RBW.

Aside from the Wadi Rum footage we see for the VFX shot in the beginning of the new RBW trailer the rest of the mountain landscapes we see were shot at Lourensford Wine Estate outside Cape Town.

It's possible Scott Free Productions owns the Prometheus Wadi Rum footage. Prometheus wasn't actually shot there at all, Scott just sent over a team to capture aerial and ground footage for the VFX dept (see video below).

Scott also shot in the Wadi Rum for All the Money in the World (TriStar/Sony). You can take Ridley out the Wadi but you can't take the Rum outta Ridley.

And yes, thats the footage from Prometheus.
Which he also used in Exodus, he even says so in the Directors commentary.

This looks intense. Getting some Prometheus vibes of that trailer music as well. Remembering the first teaser of Prometheus.

She also has the ability to levitate, can use mind-control, and physically morph into other beings. Desperate to be a mother she has issues with feelings and emotions.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra's quote tell us about Peter Weyland's goal to become the next Übermensch and be a superior being like the Engineers. Going into the past, in trully Zoroastrianism there is a trinity of deities: Ahura Mazda, Mithra and Anahita.

I wonder if the Sol cult of the series is going to be inspired by Mithraism.

Up went the cry: Just throw it on the plane."

I wouldn't be surprised if they used some footage from Promethues or The Martian.

I very much doubt it, since Disney legally holds the rights to all of that footage.

It actually isn't the first time that Scott filched Fox footage for a Warner production.

First review is in:

Quote from: Hollywood ReporterRidley Scott executive produces and directs the first two episodes of this HBO Max drama about androids, faith and raising children on a far-off planet.
The first episode of HBO Max's Raised by Wolves is, if nothing else, an intriguingly enigmatic crossroads.

Directed by Ridley Scott and shot with evocative flair by Scott's frequent cinematographer Dariusz Wolski, the pilot establishes only a small corner of the show's world, introduces only a taste of the show's science fiction allegory and concentrates most heavily on the show's two most interesting characters. It's hard to walk away from those opening 53 minutes with any clue what Raised by Wolves is as a series, but it's easy to leave the episode with faith — it's kinda the theme of the show — that what you're watching might unfold as something impressive. Derivative as all get out. But impressive.

It's more than possible that the momentum of that first episode might be enough to carry some viewers — fans of evasive-yet-ponderous hard sci-fi — through the series. I found the next five episodes a study in diminishing returns, the breathtaking aesthetic fading with Scott and Wolski's baton-passing after the second episode and the overall world of the show becoming less and less compelling with each contrived plot point and thinly sketched new character. With nobody and nothing to really care about, I'll probably skip the season's last four episodes.

Created by Aaron Guzikowski (The Red Road), Raised by Wolves is a nearly impossible series to summarize. Set midway through the 22nd century after a war between atheists and the ultra-religious Mithraics turned the Earth into a smoldering battlefield, the series begins with a small capsule landing on the planet Kepler-22b. The passengers of the vessel are a pair of androids, Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim), sent by the atheists to begin a process of asexually repopulating the universe. Mother and Father have been trained to produce and raise a group of children, including Campion (Winter McGrath), on terrain that is inhabitable, but not hospitable. Food is sparse and the gigantic skeletons of toothy serpent creatures suggest they may not be alone.

Several years after the androids comes a vast space ark of Mithraics heading to the same destination. That the fundamentalist Mithraics appear to be every bit as scientifically advanced as the atheists is something Raised by Wolves almost surely would prefer that you ignore. The Mithraics, whose space knight costumes are meant to not-so-subtly call to mind the Crusades, count among their ranks Marcus (Travis Fimmel) and Sue (Niamh Algar), a couple with secrets that aren't nearly as involving as Guzikowski thinks they are — and whose presence is one of several narrative stumbling blocks in later episodes, when Raised by Wolves is spending roughly half its screen time with them.

The Raised by Wolves pilot often works because Scott and Wolski are on such familiar ground. So far there's no suggestion that this is supposed to be another of Scott's recent string of Alien prequels, but if later episodes were to introduce a xenomorph or facehugger, it could surely be a companion to Prometheus and Alien: Covenant (with just a bit of Kingdom of Heaven, thanks to those pesky Templar-esque Mithraics). Scott is transfixed by the show's production landscape and its hostile mixture of mountains and barren desert, captured with its own humanity-averse, washed-out color scheme.

Mother and Father could absolutely be white-blooded siblings to the late, great Ian Holm's Ash in an exploration of what happens when artificial intelligence evolves beyond its design and takes on an almost divine condescension toward humanity. Mother and Father's reverence for their human Creator — just one of many points of on-the-nose irony relating to these condemners of religious faith — is at least something worth exploring even if after six episodes I'm not sure Guzikowski has anything more profound to say than, "Fundamentalism comes in several varieties, all scary."

If there's a reason to keep watching Raised by Wolves after the Ridley Scott-directed opening episodes  — Scott's son Luke exhibits no skill with narrative momentum in the third and fourth episodes, while Sergio Mimica-Gezzan restores some order in the fifth and sixth hours — it's Collin, blending dancer-like grace and robotic rigidity to entrancing effect. Don't spend too much time pondering why an android would be designed to speak with a slightly Danish accent, nor any of the show's varied accent work, nor why a show whose best and most interesting character is a woman (of a synthetic sort) thought it was acceptable to have a slate of all-male directors in its first season. Salim matches Collin in figuring out how to portray android physicality and contributes the only humor in the dour series through his character's humorless effort to craft jokes.

When Mother and Father do things that make no particular internal sense, you can at least excuse it with, "They're androids and they're weird." It's less easy to pass off how consistently inconsistent and weakly developed every other character in the series is. As much as I appreciate Guzikowski's willingness not to overly explain the Mithraic religion or the dystopian world that led to humanity fleeing Earth, it's astonishing how dull Marcus, Sue and everybody else on the ark are. It's one thing to not want to tip your hand as to whether the Mithraic characters are supposed to be the villains or stealth heroes of the show, but they're absolutely the villains in that the series sags any time we cut over to their side of the story. Fimmel, who I generally thought was a terrific leading man on Vikings, turns "mumbling" into Marcus' defining characteristic, which gives him one more attribute than Algar has been able to give Sue.

There's just no reason to be interested in the Mithraic side of the story, much less care, and even the Mother/Father side of the story is muddled by a group of one-note characters and performances. Maybe there's a way of telling this story that explains the value of a spiritual belief system in parenting and how ideas like recognition of a higher power, a code of God-given morality and the idea of a soul contribute to nurturing and personal development. But Raised by Wolves can't illustrate those concepts, though man does it keep coming back to shots of Mother, arms outstretched in what Soundgarden would call a "Jesus Christ Pose." When it tiptoes into more provocative notions like a storyline relating to abortion, it flails hopelessly.

For fans of Big Idea science-fiction who are able to avoid digging too deep or asking too many questions, Raised by Wolves will have some appeal. For me, it wasn't just that, after six episodes, I'd lost all affection for every character and their world; I'd also run out of curiosity.

Here's EW's review:

QuoteRaised by Wolves is f---ed up.

The cosmic drama streams Sept. 3 on HBO Max, with three episodes available immediately. Earth is a battle-bled Hellscape, and that's just the flashback. Androids incorporate a remote space colony, and it all goes so wrong. Viscera cascades. There is a monstrous fossil big enough to camp in, some battlefield plastic surgery, gigantic holes, a starship shaped like male overcompensation, and cute children. If you want a sincere conversation about the benefits of atheism, here's the science-fiction saga for you.

And it's real f---ed up.

I realize this is a family-friendly website. Writing "f---ed up" isn't what I'm going for. It reads like "effed up," which teens probably say on Nickelodeon. The "uck" is missing; the "uck" is what I'm going for. Here are my notes on the Raised by Wolves premiere, rendered within our website's linguistic barriers:

Uck. Uck. Uck! UCK! Uuuuuuck. Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Ucking uck! Uckity whoa! Uck, uck, uck, UCK. Damn. Oh, uck!

Raised by Wolves begins with two androids landing on a distant planet, designated Kepler-22b. Their precise mission is unclear, though their names tell a tale. Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim) model skintight gray jumpsuits and a cheerfully blank attitude. They build a settlement, growing crop circles around a high-tech yurt and a grungy cabin. Using cool-gross biotech, they grow human embryos into a multiethnic gaggle of kids. One of the youngsters, Campion (Winta McGrath), narrates the series premiere, and his voiceover prepares you for the worst. He loves his robo-parents, but warns: "All the bad stuff that happened wasn't their fault."

The "bad stuff" starts early. Very terrible things happen to very young people, and then more terrible things happen to other people. More humans appear in orbit, led by Marcus (Travis Fimmel). He's a warrior-priest in service of the Mithraic, a puritanical neo-religion that worships the sun. Mother and Father are rocking Onesie Chic, but the Mithraic resemble swashbucklers who found Jesus and leftover stormtrooper costumes. They wear all white and have a couple of rayguns shaped like revolvers. Everyone's fleeing an apocalyptic Earth. The mood is grim, but the timestamp is secretly optimistic: Good news, the world won't self-immolate 'til 2150!

I should explain more. But I went into the series knowing nothing, and I can't shake the genuine surprise of the first couple episodes. You think you're watching one kind of genre show — drab, gritty, New Age-y, faintly prestigious, a bit boring — and then people start exploding into blood dust. If you have a thing about eyes, you will get stressed by all the eye-things. Mother has secrets, and so does Marcus. The Mithraic are sort of demented Crusaders, reflecting hypocritical excesses of actual Catholicism, but their scriptures point to key plot points scattered around Kepler-22b.

Much of this is a little too familiar. There are ghosts that might not be ghosts, and paranormal whispers. The planet's landscape sustains a snowy desert, a shadowy forest, and impressive mountain ranges all within walking distance — and then characters spend too much time in a flat-out awful version of virtual reality. There are bargain-bin insectile endo-skeletal reptile monsters, though how fun to discover those creatures taste like pork. And I generally have an allergy to prophetic nightmares, but there is a dreamy vision that, when described in spoiler-y detail, would require using the words "blood" and "vomit" and "sex" and "gigantic snake fossil skull" all in one sentence.

Raised by Wolves was created by Aaron Guzikowski, best known as the writer of 2013's Prisoners, which was also not a fun story for children. The first two episodes are directed by Ridley Scott, and the series really does suggest 2017's Alien: Covenant with less alien and more covenant, all these white-blooded androids and frozen embryos and dreamy muses about existence.

I've seen six episodes, and worry that the momentum drags. This is the kind of show where two sides fight, and then spend half a season preparing to fight again. The eccentric performances are intriguing, though. Mother is a fearsome figure, and Collin plays her with tightrope terror: She's a new god, an anxious mom, or maybe just a broken appliance stumbling toward obsolescence. Salim's more whimsical, turning Father into a genial robo-dad cracking knock-knock jokes to understand this thing we humans call humor.

Fimmel's the most familiar face, and the Vikings star brings his knack for loopy mannerisms to the straightfaced material. Marcus smiles when things are going bad, and frowns when people cheer. He's well-matched by Niamh Algar as Sue, Marcus' wife, who shares his secrets but struggles with their lies. The kids are a little lame, frankly, though Ethan Hazzard has fun as a clerical princeling maintaining aristocratic dignity in a grungy mud colony.

I'm torn. Raised by Wolves can be slow and silly. The later episodes backpedal off the wowzer twists in the premiere. (In episode 6, one character says "Are you going to kill me again?" which sums up the current hysterical state of genre storytelling.) It all looks dangerously mulchy, overextending the grimy-brown spectacular realism that Scott helped to pioneer in Gladiator and Black Hawk Down. That whole style just feels so meh now: The grooviest aesthetic for videogame trailers 10 years ago. People keep talking about going to Kepler-22b's tropical region, and, like, just go there already! How is it possible that horrible Rogue One is the only recent space adventure with palm trees?

On the other hand, Raised by Wolves reflects an unusual instinct for decent-budget science-fiction: It's impossible to root for anyone. By the end of episode 2, the "heroes" are all mass murder-adjacent. They're either motivated by lunatic belief systems, or they lie all the time about everything. The kids are innocent, of course, but the central tension is right there in the title: Which wolves will raise these children...and how long until they grow into wolves themselves? "I gotta admit, I'm starting to get a little confused," says Marcus. Ucking A, man.

Grade: B-

Yeah, it doesn't shock me to hear that Luke Scott's episodes are a pretty sharp decrease in quality, unfortunately. Glad to hear that Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's episodes step up a bit after that; I loved his work on BSG.

I'm definitely going to keep my expectations in check after those first two episodes, but I am still very in for the overall design and the core of the characters that are established early on; we still don't know anything about the final four episodes, either. Hopefully whatever lull there is in the middle ramps back up for the season's endgame. Plus, Covenant had some middling reviews, and I was still all over that one. ;)

Also, based on the EW review, it looks like we are getting three episodes right off the bat on day one. I didn't know that.




EDIT: Couple other reviews from sites I haven't heard of:

QuoteOkay, I'll just say it: Raised by Wolves is hands down the most thrilling original sci-fi show in more than a decade. Not since the Battlestar: Galactica reboot have I been more instantly hooked by a genre show or flummoxed by its twists and turns. Created by Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski and shepherded to the screen by legendary director Sir Ridley Scott, the new HBO Max series combines mystery with mythology to create a savage vision of humanity's future. Get hyped because Raised by Wolves is here to take you on an insane ride.

The basic concept of Raised by Wolves is fairly simple by science fiction standards. Two androids named Father (Abubakar Salim) and Mother (Amanda Collin) arrive on an alien planet and immediately snap into action upon a crash landing. Their mission is to save humanity by raising a new generation of atheists on this blank slate of a new home world. After some housekeeping, Mother hooks herself up to six frozen embryos and spends the next nine months nursing them in external incubators. All this is narrated by the "youngest" of the children, empathetic Campion (Winta McGrath). Named for the androids' creator, he is the one who will wind up carrying most of his robot parents' hopes.

I hesitate to share more because the joy of watching Raised by Wolves is in letting it unfold in its strangeness. What I will tease is, naturally, the believers eventually show up. An "Ark" containing the chosen faithful from among a powerful faith called the "Mithraic Church" finally arrives in orbit. Vikings star Travis Fimmel plays a high-ranking soldier in the Church, but he and his wife Sue (Niamh Algar) have their own dangerous secrets. And a son they are as desperately attached to as Mother and Father are to their kids.

Raised by Wolves is a show that is deeply invested in what it means to be a parent. From Mother's rabid devotion to her charges to Father's adorable "Dad Joke" programming, Raised by Wolves tips its hat to the traditions of parenthood while wildly subverting them. What does it mean to be a good parent? Is it about protecting your children at all costs? Or emboldening them to make mistakes? Should you push your kids into your own faith or give them the leeway to make their own path? What is the tie that binds a parent to a child? Biology or something deeper? Raised by Wolves uses these deep emotional bonds to anchor its more "out there" storytelling.

And Raised by Wolves goes there. Whether it's toying with its characters' commitment to faith, introducing strange new alien threats, or going full gore with some of its fight scenes, Raised by Wolves swerves all over the place tonally. In a good way! The last time I felt so simultaneously confused and enraptured by a television show was Twin Peaks: The Return. While Raised by Wolves never gets quite so esoteric as Lynch's more experimental episodes, it does often feel like a sandbox for Ridley Scott's darker ideas.

Over the last 43 years, Scott has carved a place for himself in film history with historical epics like Gladiator, intimately visceral dramas like Thelma & Louise, and even feel-good space flicks like The Martian. But Raised by Wolves feels like it was made by the same Ridley Scott who made 1979's Alien and its stunning follow up Blade Runner. Like those films, Raised by Wolves toys with the humanity of androids and the inevitability of a bleak, dangerous future. In fact, there is so much tonally in the first episode that specifically reminded me of Alien that I briefly thought that Raised by Wolves was set in the same universe as Ripley and those ferocious alien queens. (It's not. Episode 2 grounds us in a different sci-fi timeline.)

As magnificent as the first six episodes of Raised by Wolves are, they also take some impossibly big swings. It's really hard to trust that Guzikowski, Scott, and the rest of the show's stewards can stick the season's landing. The show could easily get lost in the forest of its own lore before too long. The series manages to balletically spin around these issues in the first half of the season, in huge part thanks to the cast. Travis Fimmel might be the only cast member instantly recognizable to US audiences, but that means the international cast simply sinks into their roles. In particular, Dutch actress Amanda Collin makes a strong case for superstardom with her turn as Mother. By all rights, her performance should be as big a breakthrough for her career as Sigourney Weaver's was in Alien.
Based on the episodes sent to critics, Raised by Wolves has the potential to be the first great sci-fi show of the '20s. Visually stunning, technically marvelous, and trippy as hell, it feels like both a callback to the golden era of sci-fi and a template for what the genre could be in this century. Raised by Wolves is a must-watch for sci-fi devotees and a return to early career form for Sir Ridley Scott.

The first three episodes of Raised by Wolves premiere on HBO Max on September 3.

https://decider.com/2020/08/27/raised-by-wolves-hbo-max-review/

QuoteRidley Scott is 83 years old in 2020. Let that sink in.

The renowned and legendary director responsible for iconic science fiction and historical fiction movies like the 1979's Alien, 1982's Blade Runner, 2000's Gladiator, and more is widely regarded to be past his prime. While 2015's The Martian was a great movie, his other recent movies like 2014's Exodus Gods And Kings and 2017's Alien Covenant were not.

The question now is whether his latest project (Raised By Wolves is executive produced by Scott, but the true showrunner is actually Aaron Guzikowski, perhaps best known for The Red Road TV series) is as good as Alien and Blade Runner, or just another overly-ambitious dud like 2012's Prometheus.

Religion Versus Atheism

Why did I mention Prometheus? Well, at first glance, Raised By Wolves immediately reminded me of that film. Not only the basic ideas and concepts but also the visual aesthetics and designs. Prometheus could have been a decent science fiction movie if it hadn't been bogged down by having to be a prequel to Alien.

The less said about Alien Covenant, the better.

While the first season of Raised By Wolves will feature 10 episodes, I was only provided with the first three episodes. Those three episodes introduced me to the unique world and characters that inhabit said world.

Raised By Wolves centres upon two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

The underlying theme explored in Raised By Wolves touches on religion versus atheism, and quite literally at that. I won't reveal much, but humanity basically split into two warring factions; one that supports atheism and another that believes in a Mithraic religion, worshipping Sol AKA the Sun.

The Earth was ravaged by this war and one of the factions managed to build arks to escape the doomed planet. What's refreshing and surprising about it all is that Raised By Wolves subverts the conventional science fiction tropes. In Raised By Wolves, it is the religious faction that is more technologically superior than the atheists or liberals.

The Androids (who are a huge focus of the plot) were made and used by the Mithraic faction in the war, but the two main Androids in the series have seemingly been reprogrammed for the other side. As previously mentioned, they're tasked with raising a bunch of human children to be atheists, which are at odds with Mithraic beliefs.

The religion versus atheism theme gets a bit too heavy-handed at times, as it seems like the story is a bit one-sided and against religion from the beginning. However, Scott and Guzikowski have seemingly not committed that mistake, as flashbacks employed in the narrative (expect a lot of these) reveal that there's quite a bit more depth to the story than that.

There are also a lot of religious allegories and symbolism in Raised By Wolves. While some of these are too on the nose at times, they add to the lore of the world in the show, and I'm excited to learn more of these real-world parallel elements.

For instance, the Mithraic beliefs mirror those of Christianity. Instead of crosses, they wear the symbol of the sun. Their clothes also seem reminiscent of the Crusaders, while their rituals remind me of Catholic rites. Even the Androids themselves remind me of Gorgons or Siren in the depiction of their abilities. For Pete's sake, they even fly (or float) in a pose reminiscent to that of a crucified person, or Jesus Christ himself.

Just like his previous science fiction efforts, Raised By Wolves explores the ideas of artificial intelligence and the themes surrounding it. Don't worry though, you won't find any cringe-worthy "I'll do the fingering" scenes like in Alien Covenant. At least, not in the three episodes I've seen so far.

Scott Brings His Visual A-Game

Even if the plot doesn't interest you, fans of Scott's signature science fiction aesthetics will have a lot to appreciate in Raised By Wolves. There are both elements from the sleek and clean designs of his more recent works like Prometheus, as well as the gritty and grimy aesthetics of Alien or Blade Runner; it's the best of both worlds.

The visuals look like a combination of utopia and dystopian elements, which makes for striking imagery. Impressively, the production design and visual effects in Raised By Wolves are incredible to behold, as expected for something with Scott involved. Say what you want about his works, but they will usually be pleasing to the eyes at the very least.

You certainly won't be disappointed if you're planning to watch Raised By Wolves for its visuals. It is definitely cinematic, which is bolstered by the haunting music and sound effects featured in the show. Remember when I said that an Android's ability reminded me of Sirens? Well, you won't forget the first blood-curdling scream you hear.

The two main Androids in Raised By Wolves are Mother (Amanda Collins) and Father (Abubakar Salim), who struggle to raise their human child named Campion (Winta McGrath). There are a couple of children actors in Raised By Wolves, but none of them really stick out as particularly memorable.

The highlights of the series are the Androids, especially Collins' Mother and the two main human characters; Marcus (Travis Fimmel) and Sue (Niamh Algar). The two human characters have an interesting background, and Fimmel manages to exude a bit of the same charisma he showed as Ragnar Lothbrok in the History Channel's Vikings TV series.

Really though, in all the three episodes I've seen so far, Collins' Mother is the standout character. Menacing and mysterious, she's the one carrying the series so far, and I want to see more of her. That said, the others probably just need more time to grow and be more compelling.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

If you like Ridley Scott's visual aesthetics and flying Androids killing humans, then Raised By Wolves is likely for you to enjoy. Still, I will have to wait until I've watched the seven remaining episodes before I can say for sure if this will be as good as Scott's best. Again (to clarify), he's not the showrunner, but his name is attached to the series and he directed the first two episodes. It might as well be his, considering how much HBO is promoting the show using his name,

Ultimately, the potential is still there, even if the first three episodes aren't exactly that stellar. Lord knows we need more science fiction shows to take more risks, and Raised By Wolves could be one of them.

FINAL SCORE: 70/100

Quote from: Nightmare Asylum on Aug 27, 2020, 04:36:59 PM
Okay, I'll just say it: Raised by Wolves is hands down the most thrilling original sci-fi show in more than a decade. Not since the Battlestar: Galactica reboot have I been more instantly hooked by a genre show or flummoxed by its twists and turns.

Prometheus could have been a decent science fiction movie if it hadn't been bogged down by having to be a prequel to Alien.

Closing comment from the TV Guide review:

QuoteRaised by Wolves is an experiment as much as it is an experience. It's an unpredictable, unusual, and unrelenting watch that's created its own odd space in science-fiction television. Or maybe it's an overwrought jumble of ideas and visuals. Whatever it is, I've never seen anything like it, and that's why I want more.

This... actually excites me a whole lot. I'm totally fine with this being a mixed bag, if the central ideas grab me. And it sounds like they will, based on the reviews, even if it does meander a bit after Grandpa Ridley steps away and his son takes over.

Fingers crossed that it ramps back up again in the second half to stick the landing and deliver on this promise and, if it gets a second season, that Ridley Scott returns to direct some more.

Anyways, I remain very intrigued and cannot wait to see what next week brings with those first three episodes. Looking forward to discussing it all over the next couple months!

QuoteRidley Scott Comes to TV With Eerie Sci-Fi Drama Raised by Wolves

What could have been an intense, stylish feature film is more uneven as a series, but Raised by Wolves still presents plenty of intriguing ideas.

So much happens in the first episode of the HBO Max sci-fi series Raised by Wolves that it's difficult to imagine where the story will go next. That makes for an exciting viewing experience, but it also means the pacing in the 10-episode first season (or at least in its first half) is a little lopsided, opening with a rush of momentous developments before slowing down and looking backward. With director Ridley Scott on board for the first two episodes, in his first work for American television, Raised by Wolves could have been an intense, stylish feature film. As a series, it's a bit more uneven, but creator Aaron Guzikowski still presents plenty of intriguing ideas.

Scott may have been drawn to the series by the central characters, androids known as Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim), who bear more than a passing resemblance to the androids in Scott's Alien films. In particular, the androgynous, commanding Mother could be a cousin to Michael Fassbender's David from Prometheus and Alien: Covenant; Collin's masterful performance is every bit as chilling as Fassbender's. The androids here even bleed milky white blood and have innards that resemble wet noodles, clear callbacks to Scott's iconic work.

Mother and Father aren't facing off against deadly aliens, however (at least not at first). Instead, they're tasked with restarting humanity on the distant planet Kepler 22b, after Earth is ravaged by the usual apocalyptic culprits (climate change, war). As the first episode begins, Mother and Father arrive on Kepler with six human embryos that Mother then brings to term, and they attempt to raise the children as humanity's new hope. They explain that the final war on Earth took place between atheists and a religious group known as the Mithraic, and the atheists sent the androids to Kepler to establish a new society based in atheism.

But the Mithraic aren't far behind, at least in space-travel terms. Their ship, which they of course refer to as the Ark, travels slower, because it's filled with humans in cryogenic stasis, who can't withstand the same speeds as androids. Thus, Mother and Father have 12 years to raise their children before the Mithraic arrive. But life on Kepler is bleak, and over the course of the first episode, nearly all of the initial six children succumb to disease or accidents, leaving only the initially scrawny Campion (Winta McGrath), named after the man who programmed Mother and Father.

That's when the Mithraic arrive, with the determined military officer Marcus (Vikings' Travis Fimmel) leading the way, and that's when the true extent of Mother's abilities are revealed. She's actually a war machine known as a Necromancer, and her turn to ultra-violence in defense of what she believes (or is programmed to believe) is terrifying. There's clearly something not quite right about Mother from the beginning, and Collin expertly handles her abrupt shifts from nurturing to homicidal, making those contradictory aspects into essential character traits. She can turn a simple telling of the story of the three little pigs into a creepy, ominous threat. Collin is so mesmerizing as Mother that she often overshadows the rest of the cast, whose characters are generally less complex.

Later episodes reveal a more complicated backstory for Marcus and his wife Sue (Niamh Algar), but the Mithraic are never as interesting to watch as the androids are, and the flashbacks to the war on Earth feature mostly standard post-apocalyptic action. In his opening two episodes, Scott establishes Kepler as an eerie, desolate place with secrets of its own, including strange creatures that slowly emerge, and a possible supernatural presence. The unsettling mysteries of the planet are far more intriguing than the basic battlefield clashes, and the show is most effective when it focuses on the characters' struggles in this hostile environment rather than looking back to how and why they arrived there.

The conflict between rationality and religion is sometimes presented in overly simplistic terms, and Guzikowski hedges his bets by using the fictional Mithraic religion (named for a Roman mystery religion) rather than an existing faith tradition, which makes the show's philosophical debates a bit toothless. The androids who discover human emotions are a sci-fi cliché, but the development of Mother and Father is unpredictable enough to find new ways to approach that idea. They both start to catch feelings, but in very different ways, which often places them in opposition to each other.

As the potential savior of humanity who becomes a valuable asset to both sides, Campion is sometimes more of a symbol than a character, and the other children in the care of Mother and Father are still underdeveloped as the season reaches its halfway point. But Marcus and Sue operate in an interesting moral gray area, and there's potential both in their clash with Mother and Father and in a theoretical team-up. Raised by Wolves is sometimes overly ambitious, but Scott's direction establishes an immersive world, and the creators have plenty of corners of it left to explore.

Good to know that, if this conflict is totally wrapped up and then the series does get picked up for a second season, the planet Kepler-22b seems to offer enough mystery and intrigue that could host other narratives that branch off of this one.

QuoteReview: When your series gets Ridley Scott as a director, you know you are going to garner some buzz. Raised By Wolves is a high profile series debuting on HBO Max from creator Aaron Guzikowski, writer of Denis Villeneuve's PRISONERS, and the series The Red Road starring Jason Momoa. Set in the distant future, Raised By Wolves is a difficult series to describe. If you have seen the trailers, you know it involves a violent, dystopian landscape where androids and humans come into battle with one another all in the name of religion. It is a baffling and dense series with a very deliberate pace that may be a challenge for some viewers to sit through.

Blending the scale of Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS and ALIEN COVENANT with the desolate look of THE MARTIAN, Raised By Wolves also owes a great debt to the filmmaker's work on KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, another foray into storytelling centered on opposing faiths. But, Scott is not the only director involved in this project. The 10 episode season also features episodes directed by James Hawes (Black Mirror), Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (The Terror), Alex Gabassi (The ABC Murders), and Luke Scott (MORGAN). Ridley Scott sets the tone with the first two episodes which drop us into the visual landscape of the series with very little explanation as to what is going on. This presents the first challenge for viewers who have to figure out who these characters are and why we are watching them.

Set in the mid-22nd century, Raised by Wolves centers on the remnants of humanity after a war decimates Earth. What remains are a band of androids charged with restoring humanity via colonies around the galaxy with the zealous followers of Mithraic do the same. In battle mode, Raised By Wolves evokes the grittiness of Scott's BLACK HAWK DOWN while the armor of the Mithraic looks like a blend of future weaponry crossed with what knights wore during the Crusades. The religious implications of this story are far from subtle with the focus of the war being the Mithraic versus all Atheists. By using a fictional faith rather than one grounded in our real world, the series does allow some distance for the audience to objectively weigh the two sides of the argument, but if you are deeply religious you make have issues with this story.

While the majority of faces in this series may not be recognizable to North American audiences outside of Travis Fimmel, this is a breakout role for Amanda Collin. Ridley Scott certainly sets the proper tone with his two episodes and his experience directing actors playing androids, but Collin approaches her role as Mother in a unique way that equals Alicia Vikander's role in EX MACHINA and Rutger Hauer's in BLADE RUNNER. Mother is an android with warrior-like skills and abilities that make her a powerful weapon. She alone can rival the entirety of the Mithraic faction and yet she shows a lot of vulnerability as she protects not only her son Campion (Winta McGrath) but several other children as well.

Over the six episodes made available for review, Raised By Wolves shifts from horror elements to survival thrills while shiting between grand scale war sequences and action to intimate dramatic moments, all supported by flashbacks that help fill in the story which starts in media res. The score by Ben Frost adds an alien feel to the series that adds to the cinematic style on display. The biggest problem I had with the show is that it takes far too long to get going. The first episode is difficult to get into as we are given very little introduction, something that is rectified with title cards and background that help you orient yourself to the story.

I am still not sure how I feel about Raised By Wolves. At first, the production values and set design had me intrigued and flashes back to the war on Earth enticed me to find out more about this vision of the future. But, many of the characters are all fairly unlikeable with performances, aside from Amanda Collin, that feel wooden and two-dimensional. I reached a point in each episode where my interest was piqued before I began to lose interest again. The filmmaking on display is top-notch and equal to most studio feature films but the story doesn't quite click. Maybe it is the non-linear storytelling and flashbacks that prevented me from connecting with the story more consistently. The trailer makes Raised By Wolves look less like the contemplative and existential drama that it is and more of an action thriller. You may like Raised By Wolves but I am not sure anyone will love it.

7/10

I dont dare to read too much of the reviews. I want to be suprised.
But what i do have to say is that no matter how it turns out, i think its fantastic that good ol Wierd Ridley have returned.
It seams like this is a throwback to his early work, where it was more wierd and arthouse. He then became more commercial over the years.

I like him when he does both.
And we havent seen him done wierd in a while. I think Prometheus and Covenant he was retained, now it seams like he is unleashed.

QuoteRaised by Wolves feels like the logical next step in Ridley Scott's career. The Alien and Blade Runner director has returned to artificially intelligent characters in recent years with films like Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, so it follows that his first US TV directing gig would be about gradually deteriorating AI wrestling against their programming on a mysterious, far-flung world.

The HBO Max series, which releases its first three episodes on Thursday, September 3, was created by Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski with Scott on board as executive producer. Scott also helmed the first two installments - setting the stage for a 10-part saga that feels at once new and familiar - before passing episode 3 onto his son Luke (who directed several supplemental short films for Blade Runner 2049, Alien: Covenant, and The Martian). This father-son handoff is fitting; Raised by Wolves centers on a pair of humanoid androids tasked with raising a new generation of human children, exploring the limits of their own humanity — and their own inhumanity — in the process,

The show's premise seems simple at first, though it plays its cards devilishly close to its chest. There aren't any spoilers in this review, though do look out for my detailed deep-dive once the show has officially premiered; there is a lot to get into, and each installment feels like it opens up new doors and new possibilities. The first episode takes what would ordinarily be a prologue in voiceover or opening text and spreads it across an entire hour, introducing us to a pair of androids simply named Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim) who arrive on a distant planet sometime after the Earth becomes uninhabitable.

Despite the conflicting programming at their core, Mother and Father have a personable rapport and they share a common objective: birthing six human embryos on this distant world, seeding it with new life, and raising these six children to avoid the mistakes which led to humanity's implosion. The show is able to play coy with its specifics longer than most sci-fi stories of its ilk; after all, the only real exposition at first is what Mother and Father do and do not teach their kids (what information is or is not shared, and why, is an entertaining part of the mystery). All we seem to know for sure is this: the Earth was torn apart by religious zealotry, and a core belief of one major faction — the sun-worshipping Mithraic — involved stern opposition to androids raising human children.

Mother, Father, and their kids are, therefore, refugees of sorts. They arrived on a tiny spacecraft that now hangs off an inner ledge of one of this planet's many enormous holes (deep, unending caverns shot dizzyingly by Scott). We don't yet know who sent them here, but we know they weren't Earth's only survivors; somewhere, out in the universe, a ship known as The Ark carries a thousand Mithraic passengers to distant quadrants, and all it would take to contact The Ark is someone switching on Mother and Father's ship — should they be able to reach it.

The first episode is focused mostly on this makeshift interstellar family, while the second and third flesh out the backstories of two Mithraic characters in particular — Marcus (Travis Fimmel) and Sue (Niamh Algar) — in manners both delightful and surprising, positioning them as thematic mirrors to Mother and Father in ways best left unspoiled. The show is constantly twisting its screws, throwing new sci-fi concepts at the wall at breakneck speed, though they seem to stick for the most part. No genre element is introduced without the express purpose of exploring its characters and exacerbating their crises of identity, even if it takes a while to get a handle on what the premise actually is (the "who" and "why" of Earth's collapse is left frustratingly oblique, even when it seems like the central focus).

However, these specifics become a secondary concern when someone like Ridley Scott is at the helm. The opening scenes promise a wildly idiosyncratic story in the vein of Scott gleefully toying with his creations, a career-long instinct that appeared to come to Frankensteinian fruition in Alien: Covenant. Here, though, body horror takes a back seat, even though some elements undoubtedly carry over.

The main focus appears to be nature of the nuclear family — a familiar structure in the face of societal deterioration — from the ways it protects, to the ways in which it stifles. As much as the show is about characters coming physically undone (and about Scott's signature, milky android innards), it's also a story about white lies and betrayals; horrors that go hand-in-hand with emotional intimacy.

There's a real weight to everything that happens, but it wouldn't be a post-Prometheus Scott story if it weren't also incredibly fun to watch. The family's bland bodysuits and floppy, uniform hats feel winkingly retro-futuristic. (I sometimes wondered if the show was based on a series of decades old pulp sci-fi novels; to my delight, it's wholly original.) What makes the show especially enticing is Mother and Father themselves — especially Amanda Collin, who oscillates fearlessly between maternal and terrifying, in a performance that teeters on the edge of madness but never fails to be empathetic. The Scotts even shoot Mother the way they shoot this new planet: in one moment it's home, warm and welcoming. In the next, it's filmed in shadow, as untold dangers lurk within its hidden corners. (Fittingly, cinematographer Dariusz Wolski shoots the first two episodes before handing the camera over to his Alien: Covenant second unit director Ross Emery, who also shot a trio of Covenant shorts, thus keeping it all in the family).

To put it simply, Raised by Wolves is peak Ridley Scott. Though what appears to separate it from his android predecessors (Alien, Blade Runner, and his Alien prequels) is something all too fitting for a show coming out in 2020. Where the aforementioned works all featured androids in somewhat functioning human societies — even those taking place on distant worlds — Raised by Wolves continues this exploration amidst an ever-shifting status quo, in which any semblance of societal function seems like a luxury of the past. Humanity's remnants exist in the radioactive afterglow of a world torn apart by extreme, irreconcilable convictions. So rather than a story of androids figuring out how they fit into an ostensibly normal world, the show pushes this familiar premise into unfamiliar territory, as technological beings are forced to reckon not only with what humanity is, but what it once was — the worst parts of it, which undoubtedly led to its downfall.

In addition to protective and parental instincts, this appetite for destruction, and penchant for clutching tightly to one's beliefs, is as much a part of the programming Mother and Father need to reckon with. And so, Raised by Wolves holds a terrifying amount of relevance — at least initially, though it seems poised to keep up its momentum.

Verdict
With Raised by Wolves, legendary director Ridley Scott expands on his android explorations from films like Alien and Blade Runner (and more recently, Prometheus and Alien: Covenant) before handing the reins to his son Luke for episode 3. The atmosphere in these premiere episodes veers between welcoming and dangerous, as androids named "Mother" and "Father" both follow and fight their programming to raise human children on a distant planet, far from the religious zealotry that destroyed the Earth — forces which may not be far behind. It's a show that throws concept after concept at the wall, though in Scott's seasoned hands, the vast majority of them stick, setting the stage for one of the most interesting sci-fi shows in years.

9/10

The series doesn't seem to appeal to everyone, but that's no surprise.
For science fiction fans like us, the promises are there!


QuoteHBO Max's Raised by Wolves is Original Sci-Fi at Its Most Polarizing

"Raised by Wolves" is the type of sci-fi project that deserves some respect for its ambition alone—whatever you feel from it, you have to admire its full commitment to its Biblical proportions, and the way that it uses its androids and killers to tell a story about faith and parenting. Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes of the series, and using his name as part of the marketing is a fair move (even if it was created by Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote "Prisoners.") This space oddity is very much of Scott's more exploratory, and out-there stories, like settling into Scott's "Prometheus" for the first time. And like that film, "Raised by Wolves" could inspire a lot of conversation, and it just as similarly could inspire people to write it off.

There is a lot going on in this story, as you might have been able to guess. It's a series that asks a lot from the viewer, in part because its parallel stories of parenting feel like they're part of a large prologue for the first two episodes. The show as a whole doesn't really start to click by episode three (the first three episodes of the series will be released on the debut date of September 3). For all of the world-building that it does, and the way it tinkers with android character-building, "Raised by Wolves" struggles to fully grab you aside from getting you acclimated to its dry, heady idea of the future.

That's the other major problem that plagues "Raised by Wolves"—you can see all the grandiose ideas that are unfolding in the series, especially anything related to faith, and the way that planting a seed of doubt in someone's mind can be so powerful.

Watching "Raised by Wolves," you feel a certain gratitude that someone can still make sci-fi projects like this, that creatives can keep tinkering with our thoughts of the future while reflecting modern themes back at us. Even if you're more on the fence about whether it all works—or rather, whether it gets you at an emotional level—it's certainly not going to provide you with typical sci-fi imagery. "Raised by Wolves" is original sci-fi at its most polarizing, and that factor seems to be why it even exists.

Interesting.
I find "The new world" to have a lot of Moebius vibes. While earth seams inspired by a lot of Enki Bilal.

The adroids also reminds me of this work

Reviewer for the Washington Post:

QuoteI'm only on the third screener for HBO Max's upcoming #RaisedByWolves, but it's easily the weirdest f**king thing I've seen since Twin Peaks: The Return and some of the most hardcore sci-fi I've ever seen on TV. Every scene looks like a classic sci-fi paperback cover.

QuoteHBO Max's Raised by Wolves is Original Sci-Fi at Its Most Polarizing

"Raised by Wolves" is the type of sci-fi project that deserves some respect for its ambition alone—whatever you feel from it, you have to admire its full commitment to its Biblical proportions, and the way that it uses its androids and killers to tell a story about faith and parenting. Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes of the series, and using his name as part of the marketing is a fair move (even if it was created by Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote "Prisoners.") This space oddity is very much of Scott's more exploratory, and out-there stories, like settling into Scott's "Prometheus" for the first time. And like that film, "Raised by Wolves" could inspire a lot of conversation, and it just as similarly could inspire people to write it off.

The setting for the series is a war-torn world in the future that has been divided between atheists and a group of people called the Mithraic who believe in an entity called Soul. On top of that, it's a world in which androids exist, used by humans to various capacities of creation and destruction. In bits of flashbacks provided, the Earth has been destroyed by a devastating war made worse by the use of androids, who hover around blown-up cities in Christ-like poses, letting out a scream that blows up things and also people. Meanwhile the Mithraic look like Crusaders in lacrosse pads, with a symbol of the son representing Soul.

But first it starts with stoic androids Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim), trying to make a new Eden on the faraway planet of Kepler-22B, which begins with raising six human babies. Over the course of 12 years, only one child survives (Winta McGrath's Campion), causing the two to question their worth as parents. As the more headstrong and deadly of the couple, Mother then goes to a Mithraic ark up in space to take more children for her version of Eden, against the children's own interests. Mother is an atheist, and the children, who have their own personalities that come out in various group scenes on the desolate planet, are devout believers in Soul.

Meanwhile, there's a warrior named Marcus, a character with a wild backstory that shows how drawn-out, if not convoluted, the series can easily be. Back on Earth during a massive battle in Boston, atheists Marcus (Travis Fimmel) and his wife Sue (Niamh Algar) took over the lives of two believers, so that they could escape on the ark. They don't realize until later that taking over these identities now means that they have a son named Paul (Felix Jamieson). Over the course of a deep sleep during the ark's transportation, in which everyone's mind is able to hang out while their bodies are asleep, Marcus and Sue grow close to Paul. When the boy is taken by Mother, Marcus and Sue scheme to manipulate a group of heavily devout Mithraic searchers on Kepler-22B to get Paul back. All the while, the boy does not know that these are not his real parents.

There is a lot going on in this story, as you might have been able to guess. It's a series that asks a lot from the viewer, in part because its parallel stories of parenting feel like they're part of a large prologue for the first two episodes. The show as a whole doesn't really start to click by episode three (the first three episodes of the series will be released on the debut date of September 3). For all of the world-building that it does, and the way it tinkers with android character-building, "Raised by Wolves" struggles to fully grab you aside from getting you acclimated to its dry, heady idea of the future.

That's the other major problem that plagues "Raised by Wolves"—you can see all the grandiose ideas that are unfolding in the series, especially anything related to faith, and the way that planting a seed of doubt in someone's mind can be so powerful. But the intellectual exploration of this story, unfolding in front of such a murky backdrop that could easily be called hardcore sci-fi, is incredibly cold. It tries to be emotional with its performances, especially as Collin and Salim mix flat line delivery with sensitivity, expressing in stiff scenes their anxieties about parents. But then there's the two humans, Marcus and Sue, and their story is even less emotionally engaging. "Raised by Wolves" feels more like reading a list of its themes instead of feeling for the characters who enact them.

Really want to see it. Great reviews, i hope it will be a big hit, beceause i think Ridley deserves it.
A lot of ppl dont like some of his recent works, and by god i cant understand it.
People who wave the Marvel superhero flags, really dumb stupid movies, and the all of the sudden want to seam smart and critize someone who makes art and makes you think. Dont get it.

So with the buzz now i am hoping he will get some recgonition because the guy really deserves it !

An AR-15 style rifle with a picatinny rail, not sure which make/manufacturer though. The helmets with their noseguards and pointy tops remind me of early medieval style knight helms while the clothing reminds me of German WWII greatcoats.

Interview with Ridley Scott and Aaron Guzikowski:

Quote from: Den of GeekHBO Max's new science fiction series Raised by Wolves is the kind of genre collaboration where it's fascinating to trace its disparate elements back to their various sources. Showrunner Aaron Guzikowski broke into Hollywood with the 2013 film Prisoners, about the lengths to which a father will go to rescue his kidnapped daughter—themes that are just as relatable whether it's a pair of androids or space Crusaders on that same parental journey.

Then there's Sir Ridley Scott, who describes his process as "shifting from visual image to visual image in my head." The iconic director brought everything from childhood remembrances of post-World War II radio serials to New York City's iconic Atlas statue to the show's terrifying android Mother (Amanda Collin). That necromancer-turned-nurturer is herself an evolution of the increasingly uncanny androids that have characterized Scott's body of work from Alien to Blade Runner. Further, while Raised by Wolves is Scott's television directorial debut for an American audience, he credits his decades of commercial work (estimating at least 2,000 commercials) as his "real directing school."

Guzikowski and Scott spoke with Den of Geek about how Raised by Wolves reaches back into Earth's history in order to break humanity's toxic patterns on future planets, and how AI stories reflect contemporary parenting in all its ego and good intentions.

Aaron Guzikowski: I've been into science fiction for all my life, basically. My father got me into it, so it's always been an obsession of mine—and often just the way in terms of how I think about the world and try to think through these science fiction scenarios and try to understand the present day a little bit better. But I also have three young sons and, you know, just thinking about them and the encroachment of technology and what the future might bring: if should they ever be given the opportunity to start a new civilization, start from scratch, but they know what happened on Earth, you have all of that information—making that decision [of] what are you gonna take with you and what are you gonna try and leave behind? Is that even something we're able to do, or are we so genetically programmed as human beings to keep falling back into these cycles? Is there some rut that we can't get out of, or is this something that we can free ourselves from and find some renewed sense of purpose?

I think a lot of sci-fi is asking exactly that right now. Ridley, how did you get involved?

Sir Ridley Scott: The script was fantastic. I was going to come in as a producer with my company [Scott Free Productions], but I was blown away by honestly the first three episodes, and I felt I didn't want to let this get away. I wanted to be involved in the casting of the characters, how it looks—very important—because with such a great script, you don't want it to go off the rails and become a bit more normal or the usual suspects. Really, the inspiration was the material.

Aaron's spec script inspired some visual interpretations from you, which led to further shaping the series. Can you describe your collaboration?

Sir Ridley Scott: I read visually—that's the way my mind works—so when I'm reading I'm getting... You know, the most visual medium in the world is radio, because your brain is gonna be better than any screen. And on a screen you are already focused on that and your brain is processing that, but it's not thinking. I come from the generation just out of the war, [and] my mother's favorite thing to do was to sit on a Thursday night and listen to a radio show called Inner Sanctum. But she was so afraid to listen to the radio [alone], she'd make my brother and I sit with her to accompany her. It would begin with a creaking door and footsteps, and a deep voice would say, "Good evening friends, this is [your host Raymond Edward Johnson], the story for this evening is..." and he'd go into a new story, and we'd all be scared to death after the next hour.

So my mother had to have all the children sitting—we were all scared to death—but I'll never forget the visuals that would go through your mind as you're listening to the sound effects, the voices, etcetera, etcetera. And so to me, on paper has the same effect; I read it, and the images are whirring.

Aaron, did you draw from specific historical religious conflicts (the Crusades, etc.) in crafting this future and its defining conflict between the Mithraic cult and the atheists? Or was it more generally inspired by zealotry itself?

Aaron Guzikowski: I think zealotry in general, but certainly the Crusades—definitely in terms of the design, the uniforms. This idea, too, that we keep reaching into Earth's past to tell the story of the future here a little bit. They are restarting this new planet and [there's] this kind of mirroring of the ancient history of Earth as this new planet gets started; but also, too, our propensity on Earth for memorializing and worshipping ancient things. The older something becomes, the more mysterious; the more able we are to extrapolate holiness out of it, the less we know about it. So it's a little bit of all of that in there.

Speaking of the Mithraic cult, the necromancers are terrifying. Ridley, when you were directing the first two episodes and especially directing Amanda Collin as Mother—as this simultaneously destructive force and nurturing force—what were you trying to get out of her performance? You've been behind so many iconic android performances over the decades, especially from Ian Holm and Michael Fassbender in the Alien franchise, as well as the Blade Runner films.

Sir Ridley Scott:I knew that there'd be a moment where Mother would move from being a very thoughtful, female version of an android—an AI—and there was a gentle quality to her cadence, and very thoughtful; essentially, [she] would be a great mother. But I also knew that down the line, she would adjust—and could adjust, almost without being able to help herself—into being a kind of weapon. One of the most impressive pieces of sculpture in New York [City] is outside [Rockefeller Center]. Ithas the most incredible statue of a bronze character holding up a giant ball. [Atlas, carrying the world on his shoulders, a collaboration between artists Lee Lawrie and Rene Paul Chambellan.] I used to stare at that thinking, "That's Mother." Except, she'll be supremely female. And so I kind of modeled Mother on that. But she's pretty impressive, isn't she? Scary as hell.

AD


Aaron, with Prisoners and now Raised by Wolves, you've created these genre stories about the lengths that parents will go to for their children. We see that with Mother and Father obviously, but also with Marcus and Sue. What is it about those stories that compels you?

Aaron Guzikowski:  I do like characters who are pushed to do something no matter what, where you have no choice: You are essentially being tasked with rescuing some part of yourself—that connective tissue between the parent and the child, in that they are kind of the same being in some sense, so stories like that interested me on that level. And here too, just the whole idea of creators and their creations; I think as it applies to AI, but even as it applies to human parents and their children: We have the genetics, the stuff that they're born with, the stuff that they come out already ready-made; and then the environmental stuff, what we choose to then teach them, how we direct them. But also at the same time, they come from us, so the way we see them is completely clouded by our own ego on some level. I love taking all of that stuff and infusing it into this story, because I think it kinda supercharges everything. It's such a primal thing, parents and their children; as I said, it's almost like it's a part of yourself. So in terms of the storytelling, it definitely opens up a lot of interesting doors.

Ridley Scott Talks 'Raised By Wolves' And The Future Of The 'Alien' Franchise

Ridley Scott and sci-fi go together like peanut butter and jelly. The legendary British filmmaker has returned to the genre with Raised by Wolves on HBO Max, directing the first two episodes.

"I was doing a film called The Last Duel, so I had to move on. I would definitely go back," he enthused, hoping for a second season. "The scripts that Aaron Guzikowski wrote were an inspiration. I would be one of the producers on it anyway because my company, Scott Free Productions, is behind it, but I read the show and thought, 'Oh my God. This is great.' I act very intuitively, and I thought I must do one but then said I'd do two. I stayed with it afterward, in post-production, because I'm a chronic grader, so I kept my hands on all the way through."

Guzikowski added, "This was the dream. Something this big, it's totally execution dependent. I was thrilled that we ended up at Ridley's company but to have him executive producing, but then he decided to direct two episodes. It was a huge relief. You hope for that, but you don't know if that will ever happen. Raised by Wolves is hugely ambitious. It requires a lot of thinking outside of the box. You need a huge amount of experience to pull off the kind of thing we are doing, and then the time you have to do it all? I couldn't have hoped for a better situation."

'Alien' Master Ridley Scott Combines Human And Androids Into A Family Unit In 'Raised By Wolves'
Raised by Wolves is about two androids who are given the job or raising human children on a new planet, untouched by man. However, religion arrives in the atheistic paradise, and the differences create conflict. Creating an epic alien utopia doesn't come cheap.

"You always complain about your budget. I think what we did for the budget we were given was inordinately a great bang for the buck," Scott explained. "That has a lot to do with a great creative team, great control of money, and where you put your money because you can waste so much by inertia, bad decisions, and bad choices. I began my career as an art director, and I know how important that can be, so I chose an excellent one. I was a good art director, but I needed an even better one because I'm going to give him a hard time."

"He, the line producer and I all went off location scouting. We had to shoot in South Africa because it made sense for the deal we had. We found a range of mountains that were in your face for about a kilometer, and every morning this tablecloth of cloud would come in, it would just roll over them, and I went. 'Oh my God!' It was surreal, it was otherworldly, so half the work was done, just by the location."

"It made such a big difference just utilizing real locations and real stuff, so every shot didn't require massive special effects which are time-consuming and expensive," Guzikowski explained. "You're still creating visually stunning stuff that feels alien, things on Earth that tickle something in our deep genetics that feel extraterrestrial. These are things that you recognize, but you don't, and I think that's the sweet spot."

For screenwriter Guzikowski, who is also the showrunner for Raised by Wolves, landing in a market where epic shows such as Game of Thrones, another HBO product, have dominated, they had to provide awe in their own way.

"I think the success of something as big as this genuinely all comes down to character," he mused. "I think if you if you're able to bring people into the story with characters and emotion, then the dazzling of the audience is exponentially more effective, whatever it ends up being. We try to go all-in on that stuff."

"When we do hit these set pieces and all this incredible stuff that's going on, you're really in it with the characters. I think that's what makes the difference, that's when you're experiencing a show on a different level. I think it's more so than saying, 'Okay, we've added another $10 million shot here that will look great.' Whatever it is, as a writer, I think it's all about character."

Scott added, "As a visualist, I say getting it on paper is the hardest single thing to do. Where's the script? Where are the characters? That's what it's all about."

"It's analysis; it's self-criticism. It's a bit like being a writer. Great writers are usually their own great editors. In other words, the writers make the decisions, not the editor. If you're mentally or creatively blocked, you should put it in one side and come back and revisit it. If you're any good, suddenly, it will become very apparent. I still draw my own storyboards. I have to. My boards are literally what we eventually shoot. I'm already evolving on paper. It's a bit like you've got a blank sheet of paper, and you're going to start your book, your novel, or your article, and you don't know what to do. The best thing to do is just stop f***ing around and start. You can always scrap it later."

That's an approach Scott is using in the evolution of the wildly successful and largely acclaimed Alien franchise. To date, it has grossed over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office. The most recent installment was 2017's Covenant, but Scott's confirmed another film is still in the works.

"That's in process. We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with Prometheus and Covenant," he enthused. "Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because Prometheus woke it up very well. But you know, you're asking fundamental questions like, 'Has the Alien himself, the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam? Do you have to rethink the whole bloody thing and simply use the word to franchise?' That's always the fundamental question."

It is strange and important to note, though, that religious guys are technologically more advanced than atheists.
Did I get that right? How is that so, when atheists are technocratic and more inclined to rational thinking?

You did indeed get that right. At least, that's what the show is presenting so far, without us having really seen anything truly from the Athiest-factions POV properly.

I really wasn't expecting the Marcus twist at the start of the second episode at all and that's added a really intetesting dynamic to the character that I didn't forsee at all going in.

I'm not saying that being religious is synonymous with being primitive, but as you say atheism tends to be related to scientific knowledge and technological advances. Although there was a time in the history of the real world, in which rational people had to live in the shadows. Ok, perhaps not in the way presented in Rised by Wolves. But something like the Bavarian Illuminati of the 18th century.

Maybe it is too early to draw conclusions, but it still makes some sense if one takes into account that atheism flirts with political left and religion with right-wing governments & monarchies. Of all, and despite being science fiction, I am excited to learn more about Ridley's curious message in this one.

Spoiler
This is made especially interesting because, with Mother and Marcus being the core POV characters we're following on either "side" of this conflict, this really boils down to us actually following two Atheists (for the time being), given the Marcus reveal at the start of episode 2. Marcus was presented in the promo material as devout to Sol, but now we know that is (quite literally) just a face that he is wearing and that he is really an Atheist playing at being Mithraic. Mother, on the other hand, is a Mithraic invention reprogrammed by the Atheists. That being said, it seems like Mother is reverting back to default programming a little bit each time she goes into full Necromancer mode... maybe that might ultimately send her back to the Mithraic side, at least for some period of time, which would then puts the two characters in the exact opposite place of what they were presented to us as in episode 1, with Mother as a tool of religion and Marcus standing against that despite the side he is allied with.

I can see this ultimately boiling down to something like Dune, where the religion is clearly a construct of the people, but the characters, specifically Mother, wind up finding use in it as a way to control the people. There are already some prophecies built into the religion here, centered around an orphan. I wouldn't be shocked to see it wind up being self-fulfilling in the same way as the the prophecies that the Bene Gesserit seeded in the Fremen culture and mythology.

I find that any little gaps in the CGI quality are made up for by the quality of the designs themselves, but I do get what you're saying. There are some really impressive shots in there too, though.

I find that it is worth noting that the show was originally made for TNT, not HBO. So this was actually made on a regular cable budget, and yet somehow still manages to mostly look better than some shows right now (looking at you, Lovecraft Country) on HBO that got the proper HBO budget treatment.

I believe the story content is worthy though, gives me the feel of Black Mirror to a degree. And that's true it has changed hands a bit, glad HBO is taking the risk to show it. I quite like the gore and the shock factor of nurturing to psychotic. Looking forward to episode 2 now.

Interesting thing - Mother introduced herself to Mithraics  as Lamia.

Lamia was a woman in Greek mythology, who became a child-eating monster after her children were destroyed by Hera, who learned of her husband Zeus's trysts with her. Hera also afflicted Lamia with sleeplessness so she would anguish constantly, but Zeus gave her the ability to remove her own eyes.

"Lamia" was also used as a bogey word to frighten and discipline children.

The lamia has been ascribed serpentine qualities, which some commentators believe can be firmly traced to mythology from antiquity, and they have found analogues in ancient texts that could be designated as lamiai (or lamiae) which are part-serpent beings.   [wikipedia]

Interesting fact.

The song begins with fading tunes of late Jóhann Jóhannsson's - Song For Europa



Obviously Ben Frost was quite influenced by Jóhannsson's work when he composed the OST.
Furthermore, this song is from  Jóhannsson's album Orphée, and Orpheus is also associated with mystery religions concerned with the afterlife, such as the mysteries of Cybele, Dionysus, and Mithras. [wikipedia]

Quote...Album's (Orphée) overarching theme of Orpheus and that myth's themes of thresholds and crossing borders. The lonely girl's voice reciting seemingly random numbers became the voice of Euridyce, a voice from beyond, from elsewhere.

Ridley Scott Tells Us Why He Directed 'Raised by Wolves'

https://collider.com/ridley-scott-raised-by-wolves-interview/

So showrunner Aaron Guzikowski has a five season plan for the series, should it take off and get renewed.




For those without HBO Max that want to give the series a try, the first episode has been officially made free on YouTube. Not sure if it works outside of the US or not, but worth a shot:

This series has so far convinced me that Ridley Scott could have done something truly special if he'd made the Alien prequels as a long format series rather than two movies. He needs the time. I truly believe Prometheus and Covenant fall short because he simply can't squash his vision, along with all the corporate meddling that comes with the profession, into the runtime of a film.

Spoiler

I'm not sure when the series is officially set, might have missed a mention, but it certainly could fit into the post-Resurrection era of the Aliens universe, white blooded Androids and all.
Edit: by my count, based on what was said in Episode 2, it takes place maybe in 2157?

Also, don't know if Scott has any interest in anime at all, but the scene with Mother on the colony ship looks like it could have been ripped straight from Elfen Lied. XD

Looking forward to more.

This is the author of Annihilation. I adore the film, but haven't read his trilogy of books yet...

He's also the author of Predator: South China Sea!

Yeah, I agree that Luke's directing isn't quite as strong as his father's and it definitely shows a bit there, though thankfully it wasn't as big a departure as I feared it might be. Ridley really did set the tone, and it seems like all of the other directors are going to be following the blueprint that he set forth. I look forward to Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's episodes, since he did a phenomenal job directing some episodes of Battlestar Galactica, which is kind of in this wheelhouse. And the writing in episode 3 was just as strong as in the first two episodes, which is a very good sign so far.

Ridley has expressed interest in returning for more episodes, if this does get picked up for a second season; showrunner Aaron Guzikowski has a five year plan, so I definitely don't expect a clean ending to this season.

Unfortunately the later episodes have different writers as well as directors so will probably dip a bit.

Fingers crossed that Guzikowski is able to keep a steady ship going, even on the episodes he isn't writing himself. That'll be the real test of his abilities as a showrunner, I'd imagine.

I just rewatched the pilot. It is an even better experience the second time around, honestly. So much fascinating worldbuilding going on that you don't really pick up on the first time around, as you're adjusting to this new world. Will be revisiting the other two episodes soon as well.

Which is pretty par for the course, on a television series like this. If this was intended to be a miniseries/limited series from the onset, then I'd be a bit concerned about Guzikowski not writing every episode, but since this is (intended to be, at least - we'll see if it actually gets renewed) a more traditional, multi-season television series, then them staffing up a writer's room is expected.

Yeah, this is going to be heavily torrented. One would think that they would have at least gotten deals worked out with most of the major European and common wealth's television networks before releasing it. I mean if HBO could do it with Game of Thrones, why not Wolves as well?

I was so captivated by it from the first second. I always get intense and silent while im watching anything directed by Ridley.
It was just so F U C K I N G  good.
Really enjoyed it. And i didnt mind the "slow pacing" i thought it could have been slower. Like the first episode could have been a 1hr 20min movie.
Beautiful shot. And im really looking forward to see where its going.

I think this is what he wanted to do with the Alien series. Because the end of Covenant is baisiclly the starting point of this series.

I am all in on this. 8) Entirely gripped so far. I've even watched each episode twice over.

The directing in the Luke Scott episode is a bit of a drop-off after how great Ridley's directing in the first two is, but it isn't a significant enough dip to harm the show at all. It just really emphasizes how good Ridley is. Narratively, episode 3 was just as strong as the first two and has me chomping at the bit for episodes 4 and 5 on Thursday.

That first melody with strings and bowed instrument (cello drone) is so eerie and uncanny. Melodically, it reminds me of Howard Shore's Lothlorien theme (sarangi part), but I think I have also heard it somewhere else. It boggles me, because it is so similar to something that I have heard in the past, but I can not remember it.  You can hear that melody here, in the first few seconds:

The second part of the music in this twitter video is a direct rip-off from Prometheus, so I presume it was composed by Marc Streitenfeld.

I'll also say that Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's directorial work in episode 5 is stronger than Luke Scott's in 3 and 4, which is nice to see.

Wow, so I've now already seen half the episodes in this season. Really hope the back half of the season is as consistently interesting as these first five, because at this point I think it is safe to say that I am really loving this show.

The temple is dodecahedron - it is one of platonic solids composed of 12 regular pentagonal faces. Aristotle mentions it as a building block of cosmos (Aether). Pentagon is obviously an important symbol in the series. Its is interesting that Mother and Father raise 6 children, then FIVE die and only Campion remains, but later Mother brings another FIVE. Dodecahedron is comprised of 12 pentagonal faces and Campion is 12 years old... There are some interesting symbolic parallels.Maybe they are just coincidences, but nevertheless it is intriguing.

Regarding that mysterious figure living in the serpent's head, its still hard for me to guess who that might be, but the whole scene under the snake's head reminded me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protevangelium (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protevangelium) At leas on symbolic level.

I must say i like the simplicity of the first episodes
There were enough mysteries to explore, or to leave unexplained.
I am kinda worried now, more mysteries, getting a slight LOST vibe.
No spoilers.

Not a fan of some of the flashbacks, liked some of the backstories as they were, untold, you didnt need an explenation for some of it.

Still curiouse to see where it is going. Love the design of things. Ridley is indeed missed. I thing the biggest differences is in some of the way he and Dariuz lights the scenes. And ofc the compostion and combination of the shots.

Really curious the see when the creepy MED droid from the trailer is gonna turn up.
Is it the same droid from epsiode 2...maybe...maybe not.

That definitely seems to be one possibiliy.

Assuming that Tally is real and not some sort of ghost/apparition, I'm going to assume that whoever/whatever that figure is has been raising her.

Considering that androids can see her, what if she is actually a projection inputted into android's minds by some hacker (Campion Sturges). What if Paul is an android too?Only Mother, Father and Paul saw her, am I correct?

There is also a great mystery revolving around that prisoner with the helmet. Its obvious that his face was purposefully concealed for the sake of the story, when they reveal his identity, it will probably be some kind of big revelation. This is of course only my assumption. Others have made similar remarks.

Yep, Paul is indeed the only one apart from Mother and Father that has seen Tally so far.

As for the helmet man, I don't really think there's going to be a big reveal there. He's the guy that raped Tempest, so he's probably going to be more of a foil for her arc. And, assuming the helmet isn't one-time use, I bet we see it wind up on a character we care about after it inevitably crashes his head.

Seeing as the showrunner has a five year plan, I certainly wouldn't expect all of these mysteries to be wrapped up by the end of season one.

Now, as for whether this even gets a season two, let alone five seasons, is a whole different matter.

Post by: Ingwar on Sep 11, 2020, 03:58:21 PM
Polish website interviewed Scott, who talked about ... Bowie, naked androids and his shaver :)

QuoteDAWID MUSZYŃSKI: Science fiction, by showing the future, very often gives a commentary on the present. Can viewers read the allusions they contain?

RIDLEY SCOTT: This is a bit like making historical movies. It turns out that we cannot draw conclusions from past events. We do not learn from mistakes. That is why we started reaching for science fiction stories, creating alternative worlds in the future that should be such a wake-up call for us. Showing what can happen if we don't start thinking about the consequences of what we are doing here and now and become accountable.

I have the impression that in Raised by Wolves  you and Aaron Guzikowski are trying to show how great a threat is to connect our lives too tightly with technology.

Of course. Now our lives depend heavily on technology. Many people cannot imagine spending one day without a smartphone in their pocket. I often wonder if we use these devices or if they use us. They use us to transport us from point A to point B. In this case, we have androids designed to start civilization from scratch on a new planet. They are a modern version of Adam and Eve who are to reactivate the human race in Paradise. To fix the mistakes we made on Earth.

So you started to wonder how much artificial intelligence began to affect our daily lives.

It has always fascinated me that when we say "artificial intelligence", we immediately imagine a robot with human shapes. Meanwhile, when I first came into contact with AI, it was a square computer that was designed to make an even better supercomputer. When he does, we'll all be screwed up because this machine will know how limited and stupid the human race is.

How to create the world of the future without copying your previous films?

It's a challenge. I have already made a dozen science fiction films and with each of them I had to make an effort not to copy the previous ones. I fully surrender to my intuition to avoid repeating the same ideas, and since I already have a lot of experience and a well-established reputation, I can afford it. I know it sounds pathetic, and it's like I'm exalted, but it's the truth. Otherwise, I would probably have to listen to other people's instructions. Fortunately, I don't have to. So I sat down in the living room one day and asked myself, "How the hell do I create a world different from what I have made so far." Aaron's text is so exotic, and the world it describes is so wide and fresh at the same time that it is very easy to reduce it to banality. So I was faced with an enormous challenge, and at this age it doesn't happen often to me. Has my intuition failed me we will see soon, when viewers reach for our series and visit the planet we have prepared for them. It will be a great test. I know that not all of my visions have been approved by the fans lately, but tough. You only live once.

As far as I know, you drew inspiration from whatever was around you. The ship on which the androids arrive is similar to your ... shaver.

The simplest ideas are always the best. Of course, a spaceship with a new, improved version of Adam and Eve and human embryos should be spectacular. At least in assumption. And I spent many nights drawing all sorts of sketches of this futuristic ark. But nothing matched. One morning I was staring at my electric shaver and I thought to myself, "Holy shit, this is it!" Simple and futuristic at the same time.

So how did you develop androids appearances so as not to copy your previous designs?

Actors who could successfully pretend to be robots were hard to find. Hope no one translates it to Amanda Collinbut when I saw her, I automatically thought of David Bowie. That's why Mother has this hairstyle and red hair (laughs). Then I wanted those androids naked because they don't know a feeling like shame. However, I figured the HBO authorities might get a heart attack if I showed it to them. It is very brave television, but rather not that (laughs). On one of my walks in London's Soho neighborhood, when I was returning from my office, I walked past an Agent Provocature store where a mannequin in such stretchy clothes was on display. I told my assistant to buy one immediately and we would check not only how it lies on the actor, but also what can be done in it. It also turned out that flexibility has become a brilliant metaphor for nudity for me. This was the logic behind it: they were supposed to be naked, but they couldn't be naked. I also think that if they didn't have clothes, they would attract too much attention from viewers. We would miss history because everyone would be looking at Amanda's breasts or Abubakar's birth, and that's not what we meant.

Raised by wolves, it hits a strong religious tone ...

Because religion is a big part of our lives, whether we like it or not. We come into contact with it everywhere. One day we will find ourselves at a crossroads where we will have to decide whether we want to believe in science or in some mythical deities or in the forces of nature. Each of these paths in the long run becomes equally problematic and boils down to one thing: what is the meaning of our existence. Each religion somehow defines it, thus giving us a purpose in life. It gives it meaning. It connects people and gives them the opportunity to create beautiful things together, and sometimes unimaginably cruel. Our show does not answer whether faith is good or bad. It simply shows its lights and shadows, and the viewer will judge for himself how it really is.

In the series, you were inspired by Mithraism, the cult of the solar god Mithra.

We have deliberately reached for the faith that was on earth even before Christianity. If we go back to the time of the Egyptians, we will see something that most priests nowadays do not fit in the minds of, that is, a complete symbiosis between technology and belief in gods. It didn't bother anyone then. We can see it both in the buildings that were built in honor of the gods and in the tombs. Nobody knows what the architectural thought was behind it, but it is irrelevant now. The Egyptians were fascinated by life after death and used their science to explore this mystery.

After listening to this interview you can tell that Ridley is obsessed with religious stuff and cosmos. He unfortunately confuses grand ideas in relation to storytelling. Basically, you can have grand idea presented in mediocre movie, but he's very stubborn to accept that. On the other hand, he does't give single glorious f**k about what people think, so I give him credit for that.

Just finished episode 7. A really great pair of episodes. Anyone that claimed the show was boring in the first few episodes certainly can't be saying that now. :D

The mysteries keep stacking, but also continue getting more intetesting as they do. Crazy to think that we only have three episodes spread across two weeks left...

Also, Sue dropped a couple F-bombs in this episode. I wonder if maybe around this point in production they started getting word that they wouldn't be on TNT anymore?

EDIT:
Spoiler
Lobotomized Father still has some Father left in him, given the ending of episode 7. Given that, I wonder if maybe his twitching "trigger finger" that has been going since the battle might be a little less random than it seems? Morse code, perhaps?

EDIT 2:
Just listened to the podcast. The podcast is super interesting each week; loving that they're bringing in real people in their fields to talk about concepts that the show tackles. It won't happen, but I'd be very curious to hear a religious figurehead come on and discuss the show, too.

I hope Ridley will direct a few more episodes as well.

Aaron Guzikowski said he had 5 season blueprint so I'm sure he'll be back.
Title: Re: Ridley Scott to direct 'Raised by Wolves', Sci-Fi drama series
Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Sep 17, 2020, 05:07:19 PM
In a recent interview Ridley expressed interest in returning, should there be any future episodes. Assuming his Gucci schedule allows it, I would guess that we'll see at least one more episode from him. 8)

I wouldn't be shocked if HBO Max increases the budget of the show beyond what TNT gave them for season one, too.




'Raised by Wolves' Renewed for Season 2 at HBO Max

Quote"Raised by Wolves" has been renewed for a second season at HBO Max. The news comes two weeks after the drama series debuted on the streaming service.

Aaron Guzikowski created the series and serves as executive producer. Ridley Scott also executive produces via Scott Free Productions in addition to directing the first two episodes, marking his television directorial debut. David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, Adam Kolbrenner, and Mark Huffam also serve as executive producers.

"When I think of 'Raised by Wolves,' I think of artistry; artistry in crafting a compelling storyline, artistry in the out-of-this-world production design, special effects and cinematography, artistry in our actor's portrayals of these memorable characters, and artistry attached to the legendary work of Ridley Scott, Aaron Guzikowski and our phenomenal crew," said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max. "This chart-topping series beautifully weaves together Ridley's hallmarks of sci-fi and horror while offering fans one of the most original storylines they've seen in some time. I can't wait to see what's in store for season two."

The show centers on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task. It had originally been ordered to series at TNT before being moved over to HBO Max last October.

It stars Amanda Collin, Abubakar Salim, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Jordan Loughran, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Aasiya Shah, Ivy Wong, and Travis Fimmel.

"Being a dyed-in-the-wool advertising man, I was knocked out by the extraordinary campaign done by HBO Max marketing, which conveyed the ambitious storyline in such a provocative and tactile manner, and deftly positioned our first season of 'Raised by Wolves' as a 'must watch' show," Scott said. "It must have been a notable challenge to selectively plumb the riches in Aaron's storylines. We were even happier that audiences have responded so enthusiastically. We are already deep into the 'layers' of season 2, as Aaron has begun to shape what we think will be another brilliant season to inspire the imagination."

So Ridley is already on it huh?  :laugh:

It sounds like he'll do Gucci hot on the heels of The Last Duel since they already have Adam Driver and Gaga signed on and confirmed. So if they start filming season 2 early next year his schedule should hopefully be clear.

Game of Thrones got quite a sizable budget increase with each season so hopefully RBW will as well.

And agreed, the marketing of this show was fantastic. Take note @WarnerMedia, @Legendary @DuneMovie

I like how they have chosen this classical piece featured in the scene in the sixth episode.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HGpqcBdntw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HGpqcBdntw)


Its from Handel's famous opera Serse (Xerxes) set in Ancient Persia about 470 BC and is very loosely based upon Xerxes I of Persia; the piece featured in the series is opening aria, "Ombra mai fu", sung by Xerxes to a plane tree.

But what is interesting is that Xerxes was one of those kings (Darius, Cyrus, Artaxerxes) of Achaemenid dynasty that worshiped Mithras (Zoroastrian pantheon) as many historians presume based on some material historical evidences.

This is an inscription in Susa Palace made after successful restoration by Xerxes and Artaxerxes:

"...May Ahuramazda, Anahita, and Mithra protect me against all evil, and may they
never destroy nor damage what I have built."



Do you think it was a random choice or it was planned?

Absolutely intentional, I'd say. Especially since the showrunner said that we'd be learning more about the origins of the Mithraic religion in the show, and I believe that he even alluded to it being directly connected to the Mithraic religion of old.

Some random riffing/speculation based on yesterday's episodes.

Spoiler
The Campion AI, the Tally ghost, and the voice of Sol in Marcus' head are almost certainly the same entity. Not sure if we're looking at an advanced AI here, or maybe some alien entity that 2001'd it and evolved beyond physical form?

Also, the rapist guy claimed to have heard Sol while on the Ark. Meanwhile, none of the other stuff, the Tally ghost, for example, happened until after the Ark crashed. This makes me think that whatever this entity is, it is communicating and reaching out via the Sim. Mother followed Tally to the terminal that allowed her to access the Sim, which then brought her face to face with her memories of Campion 1, which made her vulnerable to the "Campion AI" and his actions in episode 6.

This entity also has to be connected to the humanoid figure that stole the kids' locator chips, I'd imagine, though I'm not quite sure what their connection would be...

QuoteSteve Small details his collaboration with Ridley Scott while creating the titles for Raised by Wolves

The prolific film director Ridley Scott is notorious for slowly building a mood that settles into your bones, immersing you in the scene regardless of how fictional the storyline is. The opening title sequence for HBO Max's Raised By Wolves follows in this design.

The opening credit's trajectory begins with hypnotizing VHS tracking lines that flash us into a monochromatic, exploding outer-space and finish with a single light-flare shooting into planet Earth. The painterly gestures give the sequence that human, handmade, and relatable touch, while the glitches mark the unknowns of technology.  The environments are violent yet peaceful as the viewer feels at one with the ascending body floating in at the 0:36 mark.  When the title Raised By Wolves slowly dissolves in over a barren planet, you are inside this world, compelled to discover the origins of this post-apocalyptic universe because it is now yours.

Motionographer is ecstatic to talk to title sequence director Steve Small of Studio AKA to dissect the process of making the Raised By Wolves titles and share what it was like working with the legendary Ridley Scott.

Q&A with Steve Small
Can you describe the brief for Raised by Wolves?


We were asked to create a title sequence for the show with imagery of a future Earth so devastated by wars, that it compelled humanity to find a new home.

What is the inspiration behind the project?

Ridley had seen some previous work of ours which experimented with a number of painterly techniques that drew upon 2d animation, cgi and live-action reference and sent us a brief.

After reading Aaron Guzikowski's extraordinary scripts, and seeing some of Ridley's early cuts, I wanted to portray the world it had created and emphasize the themes of conflict between human nature and technology as seen perhaps through a corroded lens. Some of the things that sprung to mind were those early photogravures that represented the beginning of photography. Back then, this cutting edge process resulted in these fragile images that could have been photos or paintings and looked like they might flicker away into nothing at any moment.

I had these in mind as I began making the first digital paintings and found a way to create dark landscapes that had a similar quality and seemed to fit into the broken world envisioned in the show.

How long did the project take?

We spent a month or so laying out our approach with pitches and refinements and once we got the go ahead we worked intensively for about two and a half months. After that we made small additions and tweaks in short bursts.

Can you describe the process and can you share any behind the scenes?

Originally we were briefed for a pitch and several directors at StudioAKA offered their take. My route was selected and we met Ridley in his office in Soho. He discussed his first impressions as he looked through the digital painted styleframes and immediately began sketching some boards with an HB pencil on paper.  A week later we met up again to show new styleframes based on the boards and once we had selected the final images and shared more ideas, I went away and roughed out some more boards, breaking down the movement and timing. Over the next week or two he'd sketch over my roughs and email them to me to show any new thoughts he'd had.

Once we had the final styleframes and the motion boards approved, I got together with the crew at AKA and broke down each scene to figure out the most interesting way to animate it.

In most cases, styleframes tend to visualise a feel rather than the final look, prior to all the work that eventually sharpens the final piece. The final look can be quite different. In this case, however, the style frames were the final look, which meant that all the glitches and paint strokes stayed in.

What programs did you use?

We choreographed the explosions in Animate in hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animation and artworked them in AfterFX and Photoshop. The one-piece of figure work was animated in Photoshop. Everything else was designed and painted in Photoshop with reference created in Animate, After Fx, Maya and Houdini. We were keen to create a different look, which often meant creating a starting point in a more unexpected program.

Can you talk about the sound aspect to the project?  What was that collaboration like?

We had presented some ideas for sound at pitch stage, largely to create the mood. It was instrumental, interposed with broken signals and transmission sound effects. Ridley liked this, but there were concerns that everything was too bleak. There is a strong core of hope running through Aaron's scripts and our visuals were coming in a little dark.  We had been animating for a week or two and had some final scenes to look at. It was then that we received a vocal piece that the Composer Ben Frost had created with the rich, soulful voice of Mariam Wallentin. It was completely unexpected and lent a startling element of hope and longing to the bleak visuals we had become immersed in.

What was the hardest part of making this project?

The hardest part was also the best part. Once we'd brought all the animation in and began painting, each frame was a full canvas that needed effectively reimagining and re-painting. Every frame. There was no corner of any single frame that wasn't painted.

That's no disrespect to the animators and builders that had gotten the scene that far. We all worked hard to make sure that as many of the main animating elements that we needed were in place, to enter into the painting phase. But the final look and feel only comes from the hand-painted touch. There was plenty of animation that was layered on in painting too.

And we worked up to the wire. Up until the closing hours of our schedule, I was painting and animating a ship's re-entry into real space through a portal from scratch and I had forty minutes to do it in.

It was pretty intense.

What is your favorite moment in the making of the project?

When I was 14, two grown-up looking school friends of mine told me they'd just seen Alien. The next weekend I tried to see it but wasn't allowed in. It was an 18 certificate. Given that when I was 18 years old, I spent almost a week's pay on a vhs of Blade Runner which had just come out, and I watched the video over and over until it got a crease in the tape. I knew this was going to be an unusual experience.

Ridley is an ideas machine who draws with emphatic clear lines and thinks like a painter. I think the stand out moment was meeting him for the first time in his Soho Office. In the room next door there was David's suit from Prometheus and Mark Watney's suit from The Martian and Maximus's helmet from Gladiator (all designed by the amazing Janty Yates who worked on Raised by Wolves too.)

Ridley sat down and looked at the styleframes and we discussed them for a while. He then grabbed a pencil (they have them as giveaways there, really good ones with decent erasers on the end) and started to sketch saying ' Now we start telling a story'.

Raised By Wolves Episode 2 Lyrics

"The door that finally opens
With light flooding in
Spilling out on the floor
The core that never was
Now it will be
The bones of what was there before
Every step, every beat
Every thought, every breath,
Everything is longing
Every wind, every wave,
Every sky, every cloud
Every grave is longing

Pulling you from the sky
Just like love will do."

Raised By Wolves Episodes 3-5 Lyrics

"The door that finally opens
With light flooding in
Spilling out on the floor
The core that never was
Now it will be
The bones of what was there before
Every step, every beat
Every thought, every breath,
Everything is longing
Pulling you from the sky
Just like love will do.
Pulling you from the ground
Just like love will do."

Given the show's heavy Moebius-inspired roots and the crazy Ridleygrams we've seen in the BTS videos, it would have been nice to see a comic done with some really nice artwork in that vein. Kinda bummed about the art style they went with for this comic. Though I guess I can't ask for much from a free digital thing that's just designed to promote the show.

I'll be giving it a read later tonight.

Yeah, I think they had about 400 crew members working on that production at any given time, quite the army.

Messerschmidt reminds me a lot of Charles de Lauzirika, the way he talks. Come to think of it, CdL might also be a good choice for directing a episode or two of season two.

Absolutely. That was my first thought when I saw it.

Spoiler
It has to be some depiction of Mother's child. The bio-mechanical (her child being the union of flesh and robotics) and the Mithraic shape at its base (the potentially-AI force posing as Sol, Tally, Campion, etc. that is responsible for her pregnancy) brought together as one.

Also, totally unrelated to that, but Carl was the best.

He says that he did one design for the show (not the creatures that we've been seeing, which a lot of people, myself included, have assumed were his) but that we haven't seen his design yet. He did say that the thing he designed is going to open the show up to "a whole 'nother level of weird" so I'm going to assume that what he designed is

...The "thing" in ep 9 isn't a premonition of Mother's baby but rather a flashback to a "younger" version of the Temple that Marcus keeps returning to. Maybe the Temple itself is the AI/force that's influencing things on (and off) of the planet, posing as Sol, Campion, Tally, the Mouse, etc. And we know from Otho hearing the voice on the Ark that its influence can reach off of Kepler, so that would mean that it is likely behind getting the "ancient" Necromancer designs to earth in the Mithraic scriptures. It is recreating some ancient cycle, reintroducing the Necromancers, and had one brought to Kepler so it could seduce her (using the visage of Campion) and impregnate her...

Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Sep 27, 2020, 01:40:01 PM
Thinking about where we could potentially be going later this week in the finale, and I fleshed out my thoughts on Mother's vision a little bit more.

Spoiler
Initially, I was under the impression that the decahedron with the strange face growing out of it was a (not quite so literal) representation of Mother's soon-to-be-born baby, since it seems to be blending the biological with the mechanical in almost H.R. Giger-like fashion (the "face" coming out of the decahedron even seems to be similarly shaped to the Space Jockey's head from Alien/the Engineer's helmet from Prometheus).

Now, though, I'm a little less sure of myself. Rather than a premonition of what lies in the future, I'm thinking that instead it might actually be a glimpse to the past, a flashback of a "younger" version of the decahedron-shaped temple that Caleb/Marcus keeps returning to to seek guidance from what he believes is Sol. There definitely seems to be some kind of force that is on Kepler-22b influencing events (if you ask me, that force is some form of ancient artificial intelligence, and the decahedron temple is the most literal depiction of it that we've seen of it so far). This ancient AI is influencing things on (and off of) the planet. It is the voice of Sol, whispering in the ear of Otho (while he was still on the Ark, proving that its reach extends beyond Kepler-22b, so perhaps it was whispering in the ear of other people on Earth before the Ark ever took off), and then Caleb/Marcus, and now Paul. It is the ghost of Tally. It is Paul's mouse. And perhaps most importantly, it is the simulated depiction of the original Campion that programmed Mother and, now, impregnated her. Because we know that the artificial intelligence/planetary force can extend its reach beyond Kepler-22b, I think it is also safe to say that it is responsible for embedding the "ancient" Necromancer designs in old Mithraic scriptures on Earth so that, one day, when humanity is advanced enough, it will make (or remake) the the Necromancers and one will eventually wind up on Kepler-22b so that the AI force can impregnate it as part of some master plan that we are starting to peel back the layers on now. It is recreating some ancient cycle, (if Battlestar Galactica has taught me anything, it is that "All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again"), reintroducing the Necromancers to the world, getting Mother pregnant by posing as the original Campion that she loves, and ushering Mother's baby into the world for some purpose that we don't quite understand.

If this is the case, then the AI's origins are completely unknown to us. But it must have some sort of biological component to it if it is able to successfully impregnate Mother (and so must Mother and the other Necromancers, for that matter). Lets assume that the Mithraic religion is actually a self-fulfilling prophecy, like that of the Kwistaz Haderach in Dune. The Mithraic only incorporate the decahedron shape into their religion because the voice reaching out to them and manipulating them into their religion has the physical form of a decahedron. It shapes the Mithraic religion around itself so that, when these humans arrive on Kepler-22b, they believe it is their prophecy being fulfilled when really they are just pieces in an elaborate game the force is playing with them. Now we flash back to the vision again and look at the "younger" version of this force with its fleshy, milk-spewing face surrounded by cloaked worshippers. These figures don't look at all like they are dressed in Mithraic garb, so that lends more credence to the idea that this is actually an ancient incident involving some previous worshippers on Kepler-22b long before the events that we are currently watching play out in the show.

That gives me the idea that we could be watching some sort of "ancient alien theory" type deal play out here, with an AI in place of actual aliens. We know already about the Necromancer blueprints being handed to us by this entity posing as Sol. What else, though? How far back does this stretch? Ridley Scott is very interested in creation, as evidenced with the Engineers creating us in Prometheus, and humanity creating artificial intelligence in Blade Runner and the Alien franchise, and artificial intelligence creating life of its own in Alien: Covenant. We seem to be watching those repeating cycles of creation and birth play out here on a grand scale as well.

Whatever the case, if this is on the money or not, I doubt we are going to have it all cleared up in the finale, so I am very excited that we are going to be getting a second season! I look forward to watching and speculating about this show for a long, long time!

At first I thought it was like Alien prequels meet Kingdom of Heaven. But this show has everything!

I might be a bit biased, but there are a ton of influences from Moebious to other science fiction tropes.

Now call me hipster  :laugh: but I think I would have been immensely happy if the war flashbacks were in sepia color, like the intro lol

(https://i.ibb.co/nLRSwhK/Pics-Art-09-27-02-09-21.jpg)

I mean, there is something really beautiful and nostalgic about those images. Like 19th century paintings or something. It also gives it a dystopian noir atmosphere, like in Scott's Blade Runner or Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

Thinking about where we could potentially be going later this week in the finale, and I fleshed out my thoughts on Mother's vision a little bit more.

Spoiler
Initially, I was under the impression that the decahedron with the strange face growing out of it was a (not quite so literal) representation of Mother's soon-to-be-born baby, since it seems to be blending the biological with the mechanical in almost H.R. Giger-like fashion (the "face" coming out of the decahedron even seems to be similarly shaped to the Space Jockey's head from Alien/the Engineer's helmet from Prometheus).

Now, though, I'm a little less sure of myself. Rather than a premonition of what lies in the future, I'm thinking that instead it might actually be a glimpse to the past, a flashback of a "younger" version of the decahedron-shaped temple that Caleb/Marcus keeps returning to to seek guidance from what he believes is Sol.

I think you might be right.

There are many things about creation, Shaw Mary who cannot have children, Mother (an android) getting pregnant after a "divine" intervention, etc. Also, I think the entity is a very ancient form of AI as you have suggested. It reminds me of Blattlestar Galactica in that sense.

Right, those guys on the planet are definitely Atheists. But I don't think the ship overhead at the end is theirs. I think it is a new Mithraic Ark arriving, totally separate from the Atheists that are somehow already on the planet.

Just saw the final episode. I dont know tbh lol :P
Its getting crazy, def getting more Prometheus vibes.

I remember the first two episodes with a simple interesting premise. Seams they have left that concept for something else now. I think season 2 will determine if i like the new concepts more. Now i am a bit conflicted. But in Ridley i trust !

Watched it a second time.

Spoiler
Still not sure if that ship overhead is supposed to be the ship the Atheists arrived on, or if it is a new Mithraic ship arriving. I guess it being an Atheist ship makes more sense. I have a feeling that the real, original Campion is going to be among the Atheist forces that we now know are on the planet.
[close]

Anyways, man, what a finale. There is so much to digest here. I'll be thinking about this for a longgggg time. Can't wait for season two. Hopefully Ridley gets to direct a couple more episodes again. Honestly, this hits so many beats I'm looking for in the Alien prequels that it almost makes me not care as much if a Covenant sequel ever happens (though, of course, I still very much want that as well). I am really eating this up.

QuoteHey there Mr. Scott!!!! Just finished watching the season finale at midnight when it come out. Absolute madness (in a GOOD way) and I loved the turn the show took. One question though, is this series existing in the same universe as the Alien franchise? Seems there are so many parrallels to be found. Love this show btw! Thanks for your time.

Interesting question but, no, the first Alien story feels like it may be some time before Raised By Wolves, in that the Nostromo was probably financed by an organised global economy. Wolves is about post-global war chaos.

Apparently it was described as a "passion project" for Scott (who can remember seeing Spitfires flying over the skies as a young boy) but it's probably on his unrealized projects list now. Would be interesting to see a WWII Ridley Scott film though, all that dark atmosphere...

Somebody needs to remind the people behind this: show, don't tell. The script Is dire, performances are dull and there's barely a sympathetic character to root for. And why, if mankind can build robots this advanced, do they have to be so screwed up half the time. This looks and feels like someone took a rummage through Ridley's cuttings, and tried to stitch something together.

Hmmm, I don't really see the "show don't tell" complaint myself, here. If anything, I feel like people are going to be complaining about the exact opposite, about the show being too cryptic in the way it doles out information (most of which seems to come through visions and allusions to historical and religious imagery).

A lot of what I gather from the show, I get from putting the pieces together in a way that I think fits and seems to line up with the show's themes. Most of it isn't explicitly spelled out, though it also isn't hard to put together if you know what pieces you're working with and what the show is drawing from.

Aye, that seems to be the case. The way I read it (and interviews with Aaron Guzikowski seem to confirm this), the original inhabitants of Kepler-22b were humans. Straight up humans, like you and me. Over time, on the planet, they've been "devolving" into the Neanderthals and, now, into the "creatures" that we've been seeing since episode two. It is also worth pointing out and the children mentioned early in the season that the creature meat tasted like pork; according to accounts from actual cannibals, that is what human meat tastes like. If I had to guess, a group of humans, at some point a long, long time ago, left Kepler-22b and made their way to Earth, while the humans that remained on Kepler began the devolution process for some reason that we are not currently privy to.

Yep. Guzikowski also mentioned that in one of the interviews that was posted a page or two back. The gist is that it is basically the same creature, but with some caveats. The version that Mother gave birth to inherited some of her abilities - the ancient ones were not able to fly, for example (and when we see it flying at the very end of the episode it is making sounds very similar to those that Mother made while in Necromancer mode). The lamprey mouth on this one also seems to be different from the traditional hinged jaw on the skulls that we saw earlier in the season.

It seems to me that this race of sentient snake creatures might be, in part at least, what we've been referring to as the "artificial intelligence force" that has been guiding events on (and off of) Kepler-22b. Whatever the force is, snake or not, it is now confirmed to be responsible for impregnating Mother, which means it is almost certainly the same entity that encrypted the Necromancer DNA in the Mithraic scripture.

Between this "ancient alien" type force influencing us, our mysterious interplanetary origins, and the birth of Mother's child, I feel like a lot of what we're watching play out here as sort of a more competent redux of Prometheus, and I am all here for that.

'Raised by Wolves': Ridley Scott Explains That Monstrous Finale

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/01/arts/television/raised-by-wolves-finale-ridley-scott.html

Spoiler
QuoteLet's talk about the serpent. Its birth alone, through the mouth, is disturbing. But can you clarify how an android is able to get pregnant and give birth to a serpent in the first place?

GUZIKOWSKI It's kind of a weird thing, because it's almost like she's been digitally impregnated with information, as it were. While she was communing with her creator in a virtual space, basically having sex in the simulation, something else got inside and downloaded her drive with information about how to build a new being. In essence, Mother is like a 3-D printer. Her body starts to work on that digital information and it decides that it needs more organic compounds. Because she's an android, her body could download that information and make something out of it. Her body was never designed to give birth, though, so it has to improvise a bit to get the thing out of her. The birth is pretty wild — it never fails to disturb me.

This is really interesting.

QuoteGUZIKOWSKI When I pitched this to Ridley, I told him that I had androids with black blood. He asked, "Why black blood?" I said, "Well, I didn't want to rip you off, basically." He was like, "Don't worry about that."

:D :D :D

QuoteDecider recently spoke with Raised By Wolves creator Aaron Guzikowski and he suggested that Raised By Wolves Season 2 could start shooting as soon as early 2021.

"We're definitely going to get to it as soon as we can. It won't be long," Guzikowski told Decider. "Obviously, we have to see how things are going [on location] in South Africa and all that stuff. But I hope that we're going to be shooting sometime in the first half of next year. That's the plan."

His goblin shark mouth shifting to the on screen lamprey mouth seems to be the biggest alteration (and personally, I prefer the lamprey version).

Post by: Ingwar on Oct 02, 2020, 07:17:57 PM
Probably the best interview with Aaron so far. Massive spoilers!

QuoteThe series is so reminiscent and offers several touchstones to Ridley Scott's Alien franchise especially the recent Prometheus prequels. Mother feels like she's the bad-ass sister to Michael Fassbender's android David. This isn't often discussed, but buried on the Prometheus Blu-ray is an Easter egg connecting the Alien franchise to Scott's Blade Runner. What were some of the conversations you had with Ridley when you first pitched the series? It stands on its own, but it feels like a wonderful cousin to Alien. Will you ultimately connect Raised by Wolves to Aliens?

Aaron Guzikowski: Obviously, I was hugely influenced by all of his work, Prometheus included, for sure, and when I first met with him, we talked all about it. But there was never any concern with him in terms of how it was going to connect to his other stuff. He more wanted to just kind of take it for what it was. And obviously, there's a lot of homages to the other stuff he's worked on, I mean, because he's built this whole visual vocabulary in terms of modern science fiction. That's part of the vocabulary of the show. I think he was also interested in evolving beyond that and seeing what new aspects we could discover in terms of the aesthetic of all of this and how these things, the themes, connect.

There are a lot of the same sort of questions about what is it to be human. Where do we really come from? All these grand mysteries that we're trying to interpret on some level. Starting from childhood, I've always been interested in religion and trying to find ways to explore those themes. So, it was interesting, but we never talked about how specifically the series would fit into that mythology, nor was that really ever the goal. As you said, it's a close cousin, and it can kind of sit alongside it, but technically speaking, the mythologies don't link up, necessarily.

The terrain where you shoot is gorgeous. Where do you shoot the show? It looks like a real, natural landscape, not studio.

Guzikowski: Cape Town, South Africa. What's so great is that Ridley likes to do a lot of stuff practically, and so we had a lot of real locations, and where we shot in and around Cape Town, so much of those environments are real: the mountains, the weird clouds that kind of fall down over the mountains and cascade down. That happened every morning just naturally, and just something about the topography there, it feels kind of ancient and kind of weird, and you know, obviously, from the states, it's even more so. I mean, people who live around there, it's not so much, but it's just beautiful in every which way; the lighting, and it just transports you in this great way.

When do you anticipate shooting season two? It looks like a feasible show to shoot during COVID in that there aren't a lot of crowd scenes.

Guzikowski: We do have that advantage, and in terms of season two, it's going to be some time early next year, hopefully. And we'll be going back to South Africa, and obviously, in different locations because we're going to be on a different part of the planet; so a very different sort of environment that we're going to be looking at for season two. Like Earth, this planet, depending on where you are, can look very different.

Diving into the final episode: that tunnel that Mother and Father flew into has another side to it. There's a whole other side to Kepler 22B, isn't there, that's vegetative?

Guzikowski: Exactly. Mother and Father think they're on a suicide mission to destroy this child that Mother's given birth to that will eventually endanger the planet and all her other children, but what happens is, they end up going all the way through the planet as opposed to burning up in the middle of the core, as you would in a normal planet. Obviously, there's something about this planet that's unique. They just keep going, and they actually shoot out on the other side of the planet in the tropical zone where they've always wanted to get to, but ironically, they don't have their children with them, so it's a bit of a problem.

So, the serpent Mother gives birth to, if you can expound on that. We were thinking she was impregnated by her human creator virtually, and obviously that's not the case.

Guzikowski: In the final episode, Mother even says, it wasn't our creator; something else put this inside of me. We don't know what that is, but what we do know is when they first arrived on this planet, they had found all these giant serpent skeletons. So, at one point, this thing that she's given birth to did exist on this planet. They were like the dinosaurs of this planet, and somewhere, what it was, it seems that it has somehow manipulated her into bringing these things back. So, in season two, there's a big new piece on the board that's Mother's seventh child, which she's going to have to deal with.

And we also learned in the last episode that there are other humans on the planet. Tell us about them.

Guzikowski: They're refugees from Earth just like the Mithraic, though the Mithraic had believed that their enemies wouldn't have the ability or the technology to ever reach this planet. So we'll find out in season two how that was made possible. There's a very different power dynamic, as you have this new group arriving from Earth, and they're able to keep a lot of their tech when they get here, as opposed to Mithraic whose shipped crashed and are pretty vulnerable.

Now, can we say that Sue is dead?

Guzikowski: No, actually, I can breathe some hope there. I would say that Sue has a very good chance of surviving into season two.

And little Paul might be Sol?

Guzikowski: He's obviously in touch with something. Whatever spoke to him had the omniscience to know what it knew about the lies that Sue was telling to him. So he is in touch with, it seems, whatever Marcus has been in touch with, earlier in the season before he stopped hearing it. It probably connects in some way, shape, or form to whatever impregnated Mother, which we'll get into in season two, trying to figure out who's behind all that.

And the hieroglyphics that Paul finds in the cave?

Guzikowski: The hieroglyphics are strange. Obviously, we see them, and they do appear to be Mother and Father in a spacecraft, and there appears to be, a store of embryos there, and so we have to wonder. I mean, these are cave drawings. They look to have been there for a long, long time, thousands of years. Mother and Father arrived here 13 years ago. So the question becomes, how can this be? What does this mean? Is there some sort of schism in terms of time and space?

Do you think Sue and Marcus will become more aligned with the necromancers in season 2 or the new humans on the planet?

Guzikowski: It does remain to be seen. Though I can say the new humans on this planet, or some of them anyway, would be from...there's a little bit of a power shift in terms of the Atheists and the Mithraic. A lot of these humans would be from the Atheist side, and that's the side that Marcus and Sue basically betrayed, in a sense, when they pretended to be Mithraic in order to save themselves. So they're going to kind of be faced with some of their old friends in season two.

Have you already started breaking story on season two?

Yes, I have. I just kind of kept going after season one, even though I didn't know if we were going to be renewed or not. I knew that if I didn't keep going and I wouldn't have that lead time to keep going. So I took a little gamble on that one. The series is filling up all the parking spaces in my brain right now. So, as long as it goes, I'm just going to kind of just live on Kepler-22b.

Among many interesting details in the above article (well worth a read if you're finished with season one; it highlight a lot of cool things we can expect in season two), it also makes mention that we may not be getting a Ridley Scott-directed episode in the second season, unfortunately. The way COVID pushed the back half of production for The Last Duel, Ridley might have to jump right into Gucci without enough time to get an episode done in between.

On one hand, this is pretty disappointing to hear. But at the same time, Ridley already set a phenomenal precedent with his the two episodes, and Aaron Guzikowski has been doing a fantastic job steering the ship so far.

Even the show's weakest director, Luke Scott, did some really great work in the finale. The birth sequence was so damn good.

Maybe if Ridley can't swing the season premiere because of Gucci overlap, he might have time afterwards to do the finale. :D

Also, I feel like there is going to have to be some kind of time jump between seasons. It had been what, over a year since season one wrapped filming, right? Those kids are going to have grown a lot since then so it realistically isn't going to be able to pick up in the immediate aftermath of where the finale ended.

Yeah, it looks like Gucci will be filmed early next year. But consider that they filmed the first season over a period of about 9 months (including a 2 month break after block 1) so it might be possible for him to direct an episode or two near the end, who knows.

QuoteSWIPE ——Ok.. so I was still working from own direction at this point.. hearing the art director and the requirements for the story.. this series here is what i felt most strongly about and is where we left it for about a month.. i stopped working and went off on other projects
The design- i gave this creature an electrical link that was like a tongue so it could jack into the mother's plugs on her torso.. that is how it would nurse.. i wanted the structure to look designed or artificial.. artificial being but not..the last image has a gelatinous shell over the head

Yeah, these are much better than the dolphin version, and I do like his idea that he wrote about how it would "jack into" with Mother with its tongue.

But honestly, overall, none of the concepts that Huante has posted yet have grabbed me quite the same way the version they actually went with in the episode did. I think they really got it right when the moved from his designs to this guy.

In the show it just felt totally... ethereal, perhaps. Nothing that Huante has posted has really sold me on the Serpent as an intelligent entity, the Satan to Father and Mother's Adam and Eve in the Tropical Zone/Eden, but the show's final design conveyed that sensibility for me immediately.

What a season finale, I went through all the emotions.
There are some really provocative ideas and some pretty amazing promises for the future.

Spoiler
The birth of the baby was shocking and disturbing.
The sacrifice of Mother and Father was magnificent, but honestly I hardly wanted to watch the rest without them ... then when i saw them come out of the hole ... and we discover the new face of the planet. WOW. f**king faboulous, this is art.

I love the final version that we actually got in the episode, so this round of art really interests me.

I understand Huante being upset about being asked to redesign his original concepts if he was partial to the earlier ones. But I am a bit confused about why he was shocked to find that they went with his final design, which included these new elements that they had specifically asked for, when he sat down and watched the episode. :D

Philip K Dick wrote; "Do Android Dream of Electric Sheep?"
That was Dick's vision about what sentient artificial lifeforms could become.

There have been many other influential interpretations since then including;
1979 "Alien"
1982 "Blade Runner"
The HBO "Westworld" series.

- Ridley Scott has been influenced by all the major science-fiction writers. He has been fascinated by the implications of what AI could be. About what forms alien creatures could take. About parasitic lifeforms. About how religion can affect behavior in multiple ways.

I enjoy serious science-fiction, I very much liked the series.

I like space aliens which take a risk in terms of design.
I mean Spock's ears are iconic & that's OK too.
But something a bit more bizarre, like from "Arrival", is a welcome change.

The way series are built up, i hope Ridley will return to direct some of the latter episodes in season 2.
Because of TV series formula, they will try to build up some tension and cliffhangers in the season final, and i would love to see Ridley direct that.

But at the same time. I think he is really good with openings, and kicking things off. Like in season one, the 2 first two episodes were masterfully directed and set up.

The crazy idea would be to have him direct the whole season 2, like f**k it, i will take it all. But i doubt thats gonna happen.
But i hope that at least he will direct more episodes in season 2. Like, if the did the first two and the last two episodes, i would more then happy.

Yeah, the first season took 7 months to film, would be very exhausting for just one director. Especially one who is an octogenarian. But with the long filming schedule it might be possible for Scott to do one or two of the last few episodes of season 2, who knows.

Even if he doesn't direct any more (and I really hope he does) the remainder of season one proved to me that Guzikowski has this ship very much under control. Hell, even Luke Scott really stepped up his game for that finale.

Based on Guzikowski's comments it sounds like Ridley is going to be hands on with a lot of the design again for season two as well.

I dont know why people seams to dislike Luke xD
I think that he got some filler epsiodes after Scotts strong opening if u are rewatching it. He was damn strong in the finale episode.
But again, amazing script with lots of wtf moments, so maybe the material made the job easier.

Idk, i think Luke is a decent director so im not hating on his episodes. Opening shot of episode 3 i really enjoyed so.

Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Oct 05, 2020, 06:44:13 PM
I don't dislike Luke, per say. And I definitely wouldn't call his earlier episodes filler by any stretch; nothing in the show was filler, really. Guzikowski and his team's scripts saw to that. Luke's episodes are just as important as everyone else's.

I just don't think his directing is quite as dynamic as his contemporaries most of the time. It shows when watching his episodes back to back with his father's, or when comparing the Prometheus/Alien: Covenant/Blade Runner 2049 virals to the respective films that they accompany. I also didn't care for Morgan.

All that being said, his work behind the camera really impressed me in that final episode.

(https://i.ibb.co/6YVZfSt/Ej-R6-M-BUYAAsa-M1.jpg)

This shot, for example, is one of many that really wowed me in the finale.

The Production Designer worked in ALIEN: COVENANT. And Janty Yates worked in PROMETHEUS. If Ridley Scott is too busy with THE LAST DUEL and GUCCI, Ridley Scott could Return in SEASON 3. I think RAISED BY WOLVES will be getting, at least, 4 Seasons by HBO MAX

Funny enough, regarding one of the many details that feels like a sort of "homage," Guzikowski originally envisioned his androids as having black blood so as to not copy Ridley. It was  Ridley that told him to change the blood to white, to give them that shorthand that people familiar with the genre will understand immediately.

Putting milk in Ash's prop was a great idea. An interesting and related thing is that even though the inclusion of the android was thanks to David Giler & Walter Hill, Scott already had thought that Ash would not be human at all!

Quote from: via Strange ShapesIn addition to that, Ridley seemed to confirm that Ash's (in)humanity was in the air from the beginning; at one point, he could have been an alien himself. "We could have had a Martian in the crew," Ridley explained. "He's not much different [from the other crew], perhaps just slightly waxy skin and two small holes in his head. Biological changes rather than mechanical ones." However Ridley found his alien-Ash idea quickly nixed: "I was, to a certain extent, held down by my producers. They didn't know me from Adam, so they tried to keep things in balance. Alone I would have done more."

My take on this is that that was some ancient android that was undergoing the same process as Mother at some point in the past (meaning that it was an ancient android native to Kepler-22b) but it wasn't a successful birth. The milky blood spewing out must be the result of a stillbirth of sorts. The cloaked, native ancient humans were gathered around watching, seemingly in hopes that a serpent would be born.

I think in one interview Guzikowski referred to the Jockey helmet as a "birthing helmet" and looking at it again, the front opening is perfectly round, the perfect shape for a serpent to emerge from. The helmet probably prys the android's mouth open to make the serpent birth easier.

In theory with this science fiction idea of devolution, a civilization can be very developed in the past.
We can assume from the imagery of the dodecahedron with the white android fluid flowing out, that this ancient civilization was at least as advanced as the one brought to the planet by the main characters. I assume with the telepathy from the planet that the ancient civilization was more advanced compared with the new arrivals.

This is classic serious science-fiction. The concept of devolution is critical to the HG Wells novel, "The Time Machine".

Giger thought in a similar way about LV-426's bakcstory. The biomechanical civilization covered by magma as a result of a large-scale disaster.

On the other hand, one can feel a sense of anachronism in Alien Covenant. That dead necropilis; Hellenic on the outside, and totemic on the inside. And yet;  its inhabitants were capable of traveling through space billions of years before humans, not to mention that they are their creators. In the expansion of the Kardashev scale, a Type II-minus civilization:

Quote from: Wikipediacapable of manipulating genes and altering the development of living things, transplanting or replacing parts of themselves, reading and engineering their genetic code ...

However, what we see in Raised by Wolves is some kind of ancient AI of unknown origin. Arguably an almighty alien intelligence.

I dig the comparison. But at the same time, it's arguably the in between Forbidden Planet & Metropolis.

Quote from: via Strange ShapesIn addition to that, Ridley seemed to confirm that Ash's (in)humanity was in the air from the beginning; at one point, he could have been an alien himself. "We could have had a Martian in the crew," Ridley explained. "He's not much different [from the other crew], perhaps just slightly waxy skin and two small holes in his head. Biological changes rather than mechanical ones." However Ridley found his alien-Ash idea quickly nixed: "I was, to a certain extent, held down by my producers. They didn't know me from Adam, so they tried to keep things in balance. Alone I would have done more."

:laugh: Well, he eventually did get to make an entire movie about a Martian.

Spoiler
, I'm still confused by the milk that came out of the Jockey-looking dodecahedron  :-\

Spoiler
My take on this is that that was some ancient android that was undergoing the same process as Mother at some point in the past (meaning that it was an ancient android native to Kepler-22b) but it wasn't a successful birth. The milky blood spewing out must be the result of a stillbirth of sorts. The cloaked, native ancient humans were gathered around watching, seemingly in hopes that a serpent would be born.

I think in one interview Guzikowski referred to the Jockey helmet as a "birthing helmet" and looking at it again, the front opening is perfectly round, the perfect shape for a serpent to emerge from. The helmet probably prys the android's mouth open to make the serpent birth easier.

Man, this whole ritual thing reminds me of Dan O'bannon's early ideas on reproductive ritual in order to create the beast.

What the hell did I just watch?  :laugh: I have some questions  :-X

Spoiler
Father said that Neanderthal humanoids are due to biological devolution on Kepler-22b. So maybe...
[close]

I think you have found a crucial part to the backstory of the planet.

Spoiler
In theory with this science fiction idea of devolution, a civilization can be very developed in the past.
We can assume from the imagery of the dodecahedron with the white android fluid flowing out, that this ancient civilization was at least as advanced as the one brought to the planet by the main characters. I assume with the telepathy from the planet that the ancient civilization was more advanced compared with the new arrivals.

This is classic serious science-fiction. The concept of devolution is critical to the HG Wells novel, "The Time Machine".
And the idea of a dead super civilization, which is only survived by it's machines, is central to the very influential science-fiction film "Forbidden Planet".
[close]

Spoiler
Giger thought in a similar way about LV-426's bakcstory. The biomechanical civilization covered by magma as a result of a large-scale disaster.

On the other hand, one can feel a sense of anachronism in Alien Covenant. That dead necropilis; Hellenic on the outside, and totemic on the inside. And yet;  its inhabitants were capable of traveling through space billions of years before humans, not to mention that they are their creators. In the expansion of the Kardashev scale, a Type II-minus civilization:

Quote from: Wikipediacapable of manipulating genes and altering the development of living things, transplanting or replacing parts of themselves, reading and engineering their genetic code ...

However, what we see in Raised by Wolves is some kind of ancient AI of unknown origin. Arguably an almighty alien intelligence.

I dig the comparison. But at the same time, it's arguably the in between Forbidden Planet & Metropolis.



Among other things of course  ;D
[close]

Spoiler
"Metropolis" is a good addition to the mix of "Forbidden Planet" and imo "The Time Machine". I could add "Solaris".
And your bringing up Giger's Xenomorph origin ideas is a good catch which draws in "Alien". And bringing up "Covenant" (and I'd add "Prometheus") makes sense.
"Raised by Wolves" is juggling so many classic science-fiction ideas from a wide range of influences.

I actually prefer Raised by Wolves over Prometheus/Alien:Covenant. It's pretty much the same story, concept and narratives albeit presented in a different way, set in a different universe. Personally I hope that this means that Scott is handing over his Prometheus codex and complex to Raised by Wolves while focusing on wrapping up the Alien prequels in a way that honors the original (ALIEN) in a deserving way.

We don't know if he could wrap up his Prequels. Disney could make a soft reboot with other people. And Ridley Scott loves to work so Ridley Scott isn't waiting for Alien or Disney

I think maybe that its a case of fans of Ridley and Sci-fi enjoying it, while critics who just are trying to be a smart ass are hating it because they cant fit it into a box. And i see a lot of it trending with critics because they become so used to a formula by reviewing movies and TV-series, that it starts to become formulated.

That weirdness, absurdity, and horror of the last episode was so reminiscent of Alien and its concept ideas it made me log back onto this forum that I haven't been on since I don't even know when. This first season wasn't perfect to me but it was incredibly enjoyable. As stated by other users this really feels like a reimagining of Prometheus/Covenant. Hoping the coming seasons can retain the feeling of mystery and horror while expanding the world.

Spoiler
The vision Mother had of the presumably ancient android birthing was my favorite part. How can you not think space jokey?! The planet was obviously full of lampreys (or a different version) at one point ie: the bones.

Guessing that the androids of past weren't up to par for whatever this ritual was trying to achieve and needs a necromancer tech to birth something more powerful. I'm just wondering why whatever "entity" contains this knowledge was relaying the information on earth through the Mithraic scriptures? I believe it was the "doctor bot" that mentioned that the necromancers posses dark photon tech that isn't fully understood and was only learned through their texts. Can't even think of why some AI/Alien/Entity needs a gigantic flying lamprey? Passing itself or conscience through it somehow?

Anyways it's been a long time since a sci-fi show made me think like this. LOVE IT.

Sol or sol Invictus was the sun god of the later Roman Empire and the patron of soldiers and there was as a connection between it's emperors especially Aurelian, Rome's philosopher emperor.

Having done a bit more reading on the subject, it looks like there were two versions of that religion. "Sol" was a much earlier version while "Sol Invictus" was the more modern version popularized by Emperor Aurelian.

According to Roman sources, the worship of Sol was introduced shortly after the foundation of Rome. And the popular foundation myth of Rome says that the city was founded by Romulus and Remus, twins who were raised by a she-wolf as infants.

I knew about the Romulus and Remus mythology.
I appreciate the information about the early Roman religion which I did not know about.

In the press interviews before the release of "Prometheus", Ridley Scott mentioned the Roman Empire as part of the backstory for that film.

Spoiler
It seems, Scott continued to think about the Roman Empire as part of the basis for a science fiction story. Only in "Raised by Wolves" he was able to more clearly mesh the ideas from the Roman past (in terms of religion) with a futuristic story.

'Basically, when she has that dream and she sees that thing and that weird kind of helmet robot head thing, and the fuel blood starts gushing out of the front of it, kind of the nozzle on the front, what that is, there is actually an android inside of that. It's sort of like a birthing prison sort of thing.'"

Truth is Practical are in a tough spot today because Cameras and lenses have become so good at rendering very fine details.
You'll often sees DP go for diffusion filter to soften the sharpness and come back a softer "film like" curve.
But Ridley doesn't do that, he likes the clinical high precision image.
What was forgiving as practical (because of scale, details...) has now become very noticeable as props.

In terms of using all the tool at his disposal, Ridley's a master and probably one of the finest with Scorsese in my opinion.
His use of Matte painting are a joy for the eye and VFX are always there to enchance the narrative, not purely for the eye candy.
He knows the strength and weakness of both medium and always surround himself with an amazing team.

Post by: Ridlazz921 on Oct 28, 2020, 06:02:29 PM
Yeah its true, we see a lot of vintage lenses and soft filters on Digital cameras to not get that hard sharp digital look.
The reason i think Ridley doesnt do that is that he have shoot on film for so long, and he sued those lenses when they were new. So he looks forward rather then look back.
