The "Voyages Extraordinaires" (Extraordinary Voyages) is a collection of novels and short stories by the French writer Jules Verne. Some of the most well-known of these stories include classics like "Journey to the Center of the Earth", "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", and "Around the World in Eighty Days". According to Verne's editor, the goal of Voyages was "to outline all the geographical, geological, physical, historical and astronomical knowledge amassed by modern science and to recount, in an entertaining and picturesque format ... the history of the universe."
For round 6, you'll need to create a video that exemplifies the pursuit of adventure, exploration, and discovery. Referencing or showcasing the aesthetics of works by Jules Verne is not required, so your concept should be focused on the theme of these works as a whole. You should also not expect the judges to be familiar with the entirety of the Voyages Extraordinaires series, so basing your video on context exclusive to specific titles (especially lesser known ones) may not be enough to satisfy the theme.
