From executive producer Christopher Giroux, (The Heretics, I’ll Take Your Dead and Bite) and creators James Young, Nik Benn, and Michael Davison, comes a new genre bending webseries that’s sure to peak the interest of all sci-fi lovers.
The series follows two test subjects converting to synthetic bodies in hopes of becoming the world’s first true immortals. Told through a combination of vlogs and documentary filmmaking this experimental series will take a grounded approach to science fiction and form the foundation for a new science fiction universe. David Walpole (Sew the Winter to My Skin, Image Killer) and Jessica Barrera (Jump, Dreamcatcher) star as the two lead roles.
“It’s a very personal story compared to what we’re used to seeing in modern science fiction,” says Davison. “More often than not we see projects put external obstacles on the heroes, but for us, we wanted to see how a person might handle both losing the weight of mortality, only to replace it with the weight of eternity.”
Nik Benn will be taking on a new role with this project as he helms as the main series director. “This project is a little like the aligning of the planets. The cast and crew we’ve got attached are some super talented folks,” says Benn about writing the show.
"Amortal" is currently running an interactive Indiegogo campaign which allows the viewers to get involved with the show with such peaks as becoming employees of the synthetic tech company, Coil Industries and other exciting perks that will make any fan want to live forever.
The series will continue with the style established by Image Killer with transmedia elements that will take the audience deeper into the world. Backers on the Indiegogo will receive ID badges with QR codes that take them to secret places on the series website.
Currently the show is in pre-production with production slated to begin in December of 2018.
