Welcome everyone! This is Episode 0. You can start here or return here to find out what Dom and I were REALLY thinking when we started this goofy thang!
First up APOLOGIES for sound. It’s weird as all get out as this was our first attempt. And mostly, apologies to Mr. Mah himself as it’s his audio in particular that suffers. We’re working on it.
Second up APOLOGIES for Mr. Mah being half on screen ALSO due to the fact we’ve never done this. But his shiny presence shines on through for sure. (I’m seriously not trying to make Dom look and sound bad, it just happened.)
Third up some definitions to help out:
Morrison’s original definition of “Elevated Genre”:
Genre films that tackle “hi-concept” sci-fi concepts on a limited budget focusing on character and “reality” with the concept relegated to the background of the movie. As opposed to a big budget blockbuster where the concept becomes the driving force of the film.
Elevating the Genre Podcast working definition:
Any element in any “genre” (re: geek) piece of IP/story that raises that piece (or a moment or element in the piece) above the normal expectations of that genre.
Fourthly: We record a visual version as well and you can find that here if you wish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cONnSzO0iI
