I can understand why a casting call came along ATS way.
There are thousands of authors, experts on survival in the world. But none like the kind on ATS, where we will offer views, discuss and debate each
and every conceivable survival scenarios for there are many, and had been doing so for years.
It is a great opportunity for someone who made it through, for it will save lives if properply presented. The produced film will not be shown only in
USA, but beam across the world and through the media, more will be made aware if caught in such similar situations.
The selected ATS would be thus familiar with the kind of SHTF scenarios:-
1. Global financial meltdown:- what happens when the dollar is useless and trust is gone, where you can't even buy an egg with.
2. Global Earth Change meltdown:- what to do when earthquakes, Tsunamis, sinkholes, volcano eruptions, land slides, massive Solar flares, etc
3. Global social meltdown - what to do when riots, civil war and anarchy occurs.
4. Global Nuclear meltdown - what to do and precautionary measures to take once nuke stations go boom
5. Global Extra-terresterial strike -what to do with a hostile ABSOLUTE unknown - religious, economic, social and political impacts.
Not only must the selected member knows what to do, how to survive, the steps to take, he MUST also know how to REBUILD our society.
For too long, the Survivor reality TV series had only shown the dark side of nature, and proven how evil we can and must be inorder to win the top
prize. This is true in the corporate world and today, everyone saw the result - it had doomed us all.
Thus, a new better message be sent instead, that with honest, integrity and an openess to allow others to voice out, we will then be able to
rationally choose the best argument and direction to take - and pay for any mistakes made in the end, or share the credits if it succeeds.
Many will want to be paid for such efforts, but one must look at the bigger picture. The purpose of that series is to save lives and educate in a
hopefully entertaining way. It does have altrusic aims, and the rewards are far more than money can buy.
I am sure the producers will not mind paying a bit more, more so if the show is bought internationally, earning much more revenue.
However, the success of the show will not depend on interesting it would be directed, but rather on its authenticity on its aim - SURVIVAL in real
SHTF situations. It would need many others to contribute, such as survivors of those listed scenarios above, rather than a scholar's point of view.
NOthing beats reality, of real people beating the odds.
They will come from different nationalities offering valuable insights and contributions. It is my hope that the selected ATS member can be a good
leader whom will convince and tapped such folks expertise to share and help make the series a success, and lead ATS to greater heights of creating
feedback on and for humanity never seen from any internet forum before.
