Covenant Minute 18

In which I am joined for the last time, for now, by Duncan Shields and we discuss Ridley Scott’s ego, future relationships with AI, and the importance of format and structure for effective storytelling, maybe the Alien prequels should have been a TV series?

Covenant Minute 14

In which I discuss Oram, Ridley Scott’s cinematography, ¬†and compare this scene between film, book and script.

Covenant Minute 09

In which I talk about babies, generation starships, and neutrinos.
