This incredible film Evil Seed can be made on a relatively low budget set in the Grand Canyon. With the rightly designed animated 3-D character alien "statues" as described in the novel, and staying with those descriptions of the artifacts combined with a synthesized speech program, this film will glow in the science-based depictions of phenomena, incorporating political and social issues, and to explore philosophical issues like the human condition. This film gears its plot on transcendentalism of magic, I think, to reconcile the human spirit with the unknown forces of gaia, assuming that a continuum exists between (real-world) empiricism and (supernatural) transcendentalism. The author has written in many supporting elements of human and alien nature. The scenes and science fictional elements of the settings and the imagery of the film, I think, is related back to mankind and how we relate to our surroundings. Furthermore, it is my opinion that science in favor of art can be seen in Evil Seed with focus on environmental effects. I find it quite interesting here that the "aliens" can communicate in a common earth tongue. The science fiction film genre has long served as a useful vehicle for "safely" discussing controversial topical issues and often providing thoughtful social commentary on potential unforeseen future issues. Evil Seed also has elements of the gothic thriller genre.
In this case, a prophetic working, Evil Seed is consistent throughout with reasoning on why Mother Earth is dying and her pleas for help. Ironically, foretold by McGovern-Bowen in the geographical vicinity of the Grand Canyon where Evil Seed is set, an early 2012 timely issue in the modern-day Grand Canyon is leaching media from the Interior Dept. in a statement that has been issued in the first week of 2012 that the Interior Dept. will limit mining.
The Interior Department is moving forward with a plan to ban new mining claims on 1 million acres near the Grand Canyon. Congressional Republicans are tring to block efforts to limit mining operations in an area known for high-grade uranium ore.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is preparing to finalize a twenty-year ban on new mining claims on public land surrounding the Grand Canyon. Salazar twice imposed temporary bans as officials studied the environmental and economic effects of a longer-term ban.
Conservation groups hailed the twenty-year ban as a major protector for an American icon. The Grand Canyon is a national treasure which attracts visitors from around the world.
Environmental groups call the ban a long-awaited but decisive victory, noting that the Colorado River, which runs through the Grand Canyon, is the source of drinking water for twenty-six million Americans.
Salazar has defended the Southwest's right to plentiful, clean water and America's dedication to one of our most precious landscapes, the Grand Canyon.
The ban will not affect more than 3,000 mining claims already staked in the area near the Grand Canyon.
Supporters of the ban say any increase in mining jobs is not worth risks to the Colorado River, lands considered sacred by American Indian tribes or wildlife habitat.
Another Sundance Wives intellectual property turned to film, The Sundance Wives success is timely tapped into the cultural pulse.
Keeping tightly within the storyline, I am enjoying adapting the C.G. McGovern-Bowen Sci-Fi Action/Adventure novel Evil Seed to film.
