1. What is the Minus?

THE MINUS is an epic science fiction story – told from different perspectives across various media.

The webpage, the-minus.com, is the ever growing epicenter of the Minus-Universe connecting points of view in moving and still image, cinematic movies, short stories, sound, radioplay and graphic novel.

2. Do I have to consume all parts
in all media to understand the story?

THE MINUS was actually meant to become a graphic novel only. But quickly the 8 page script from 2011 evolved into a complex structure…and we had to find the best media for its content.

Many streams and perspectives – all stories connected over the constraints of each medium with points of contact, cross references and overlaps everywhere, but each story standing for itself so the viewer can piece together an overall image.

All the stories take place in a fictional world what we call the “The Minus Universe”.

3. What is the big plan?

In the long run it would be great if this would become an open-source project, in which the story/history is written by the visitors themselves.
A playground, a plane for creatives from all over the world. Perhaps not only creatives but all ‘open minded people’, explorers…

It would be amazing if we could create parallel universe and use swarm intelligence.
