The Unknown is a web-series that is based in the near future. It follows Elliot as he wakes up, having no recollection of who he is or why he's in an abandoned town.
The only remnant of his previous existence is a security card for a company he knows nothing about and a photo of a wife and child he does not remember having.
As he explores the town he find himself violently pursued by a group that call themselves The Guardians who attempt to drag everyone into an area known only as Zone A.
Elliot knows nothing of why this is happening, only that his only hope of survival is to join others like him who are on the run and seeking the truth.
The Unknown is made by scifi fans, for scifi fans!
Webisode series are the future. With so much video content being downloaded or streamed online these days, as an affordable alternative to DVDs(as you can watch it online for free legally?!) and cinema trips(as you can enjoy from the comfort of your own bed), the popularity of webisodes and online releases are soaring.
More and more people are watching programs designed for online distribution and we intend to keep them entertained!
The Unknown is a unique and gripping story, that will have you on the edge of your seats until the very last moment.
We are asking for $7500 to make the pilot for this series. We love our idea, the world and characters we have created and a pilot is a great way to begin transforming what is on paper into reality.
We want to give you a taster for what's to come in this pilot. However, the more money we raise the better! Everything we raise will go directly onto the project and help make this series a happen! The entire series is now completed and spans over 6 episodes, plus we have a lot more surprises in-store!
To make this world come to life we need a few bits and bobs:
- Some cameras and lights would be a start
- Other miscellaneous equipment that no one ever really knows the names of
- A cast
You get the picture...
So yeah, check out the rewards and see if there's an eye-catching find that you just can't help but say yes too, and follow the updates for more winnable concept art, and casting information!
