Film

A good story well told.

This studio promotes imagination and a genuine return to the story and character.

Imaginative stories often require special effects when depicted in film. This studio promotes emphasizing the story and its characters, with special effects being utilized to complete the story, not dominate it.

This studio is presently pursuing the production of two screenplays of speculative fiction, imaginative yet simple stories, well told. Prior to pursuing funding, we are seeking the right directors for these projects, as we believe that story and director are the first two vital elements in producing a unique film of high quality and special vision.

This studio is presently pursuing the production of two unique, emotionally touching films of speculative fiction.

Publishing

Where Art meets Science. 

This studio promotes the artistic celebration of the imagination and the human condition while simultaneously embracing knowledge.

Speculative fiction, as we have defined it (see "Our Theme") does not require its reader to suspend his belief in reality. It does not request the reader to accept what is inherently impossible. The aim here is scientific adherence. This studio does recognize, however, the gray area illustrated by Arthur C. Clarke's 3rd Law—"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"—and thus new works will be considerate of this, and careful as to how the fantastic is presented.

This studio's new works, yet to be created, may fall under the heading of hard science fiction, soft science fiction, or even general fiction—when they imaginatively incorporate the fantastic in accordance to science.

This studio has a special interest in creating new speculative fiction that falls under the rubrics of :

1. Extraterrestrial (alien contact)
2. Mythos (religion/mythology) — as speculative fiction
3. Utopian

These works may involve an exploration of non-human intelligence, and possibly extraterrestrial archaeology.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

The goal being to publish the ultimate English edition of this work to date.


Lost Horizon

Zinovii Art Studio is interested in publishing James Hilton's classic work of utopian speculative fiction. (Hilton's 1933 Lost Horizon is a good example of a literary story that contains the fantastic but presented in a possible manner.) This would be published as a high quality, hardcover edition with new original artwork and commentary.

At the Mountains of Madness

This Studio is exploring the possibility of publishing H. P. Lovecraft's unique 1931 novella of speculative fiction. (Lovecraft makes a great effort to present this "horror" tale of his in a manner consistent with the science and knowledge of the early 20th Century, especially in his depiction of extraterrestrials.)
