I'll have to watch that. But at least my idea hasn't already been done (where's the girl on the run from her oppressive father?)...

Now I need something to produce the space scenes with...

You could always tie a rope to someone's belt, and hold them in the air, and then use software to eliminate the rope. It's cheesy, but it's within your budget!

:D

Lowest production cost would be to do the whole thing in Flash. You don't really even need particularly skilled artists. If you can draw a stick figure, you can use Flash Animator. Get a few people to do the voices and you're set.

Asimov did some great short stories that were properly good sci-fi, but would work in the near future, with no special effects to speak of.

There was a great one about a child's talking robot, that told stories. But the stories were all quite samey, and eventually he got out of date and the kids abused him. It ends with the toy telling a sad story about a toy robot that wanted to entertain, but was beaten by his oppressive owners.

Can't remember what it's called.
