An Exclusive Interview with Alan Nafzger: The Mind Behind “Zuckerberg vs Musk: Cage Fight”

In an exclusive one-on-one conversation, Katy Room of sat down with Alan Nafzger, the screenwriter of the much-buzzed-about “Zuckerberg vs Musk: Cage Fight.” The discussion delved into libertarian philosophy, the future of AI and CGI in filmmaking, and why Elon Musk is never actually going to punch Mark Zuckerberg.

Katy Room: The Non-Aggression Principle in Screenwriting

Katy Room: Alan, your screenplay seems to flirt with the Non-Aggression Principle, a key libertarian tenet. Are you making a point about the futility of conflict?

Alan Nafzger: Absolutely. At the core of it, both Musk and Zuckerberg are creators, not destroyers. They’re shaping the world through technology, not through physical conflict. The screenplay illuminates this point through humor and satire.

Marriage of CGI and AI in Filmmaking

Katy Room: The use of CGI and AI for generating moving images is revolutionary. Do you think technology should have limits or should innovation be unfettered, another nod to libertarianism?

Alan Nafzger: A libertarian might argue for unregulated innovation, but even I have my boundaries. We should push the envelope, yes, but always with an eye toward ethical implications.

Musk vs Zuckerberg: An Unrealistic Scenario?

Katy Room: Would you say your screenplay serves as a critique of government overreach into the lives of public figures like Zuckerberg and Musk?

Alan Nafzger: It’s not just about government overreach, but also about the media’s role in shaping narratives. That said, Musk and Zuckerberg will never actually fight. It’s a jest and a joke for Musk. He’s poking fun at what he sees as the Neanderthal paradigm of Zuckerberg.

The Right to Personal Autonomy in Film Characters

Katy Room: Personal autonomy is a critical element of libertarianism. How do you reconcile this with the idea that the characters you’ve written, based on real people, aren’t really autonomous in your script?

Alan Nafzger: This is a great point and one that addresses the core of celebrity image rights. Once a celebrity signs off on their portrayal, the character in the screenplay becomes a form of joint ownership. It’s both a legal and philosophical issue.

The End of the Drug War through Satire?

Katy Room: You’ve also made some significant references to the end of the drug war. Is this in sync with libertarian views on drug prohibition?

Alan Nafzger: Absolutely. The war on drugs has been a catastrophic failure on many fronts. If my screenplay can get people to discuss this, then I’ve done my job.

Intellectual Property and the Future of Screenwriting

Katy Room: A final thought. What’s your stand on intellectual property?

Alan Nafzger: Intellectual property is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it protects creators. On the other, it can stifle innovation. A balance is crucial.

Katy Room: Alan, thank you for this insightful interview. It was a pleasure discussing these nuanced topics with you.

Alan Nafzger: The pleasure was mine. Thank you for giving me the platform to delve into these issues.

In a world where the lines between reality and satire are increasingly blurred, Alan Nafzger’s “Zuckerberg vs Musk: Cage Fight” promises to deliver a heady blend of humor, technology, and philosophy, challenging us to confront our own deeply-held beliefs and biases.
