Archive began when Gavin Rothery lost everything. In October , Rothery was the visual effects director for a London advertising agency when his two home computers simultaneously crashed. His life's work up until that point, including the work he did for the sci-fi Moon with Duncan Jones, was lost due to hard drive failure. I was stressed out. Rothery's shock felt like mourning.
Science fiction is such an old genre that it has several conventions that can quickly turn into cliches. However, these conventions exist because every story cannot reach the breadth of the topic and provide all the social commentary that there is to provide. Moreover, given the nature of the genre, the way these conventions are looked at also changes with time as technology advances.
