Art is meant to be an inspiration for human creativity. The greatest works of art act as wellsprings of new ideas, creating movements, styles, and new ages in their wake. Painting and sculpture, literature, and film have inspired countless new artists to further develop their own work. This string of competitions will be the first of many, centering around the creative inspiration of famous works of art, and the genres that they helped to found.
First on the list; Mad Max. This cult classic film series came into being soon after Star Wars itself, and helped to inspire the decades of dystopian, post-apocalyptic thrillers that came afterward. The modern-day image of scrappy, savage biker-gang raiders filling the wasteland left by the fall of our society was created by these films, shaping the creative direction of much of our media.
So, step into the shoes of a hard-bitten survivor of the apocalypse. Throw on your jacket, gather your weapons, and rev your engines. Embrace the wasteland, in a galaxy far, far away.
