Vestige of the Vox Populi # 56
Increasing numbers and kinds of original episodic and motion picture productions continue to migrate from television to internet. One of the best “internet TV” shows I’ve seen is a fascinating and very well made narrative webisodic series called Tyranny. This remarkable show is an example that internet efforts need not be of lesser quality than TV and can be more developed than, and not limited to, vlogs or LG15 level creations... just as TV is not necessarily nor inherently less than motion pictures.
I’m excited and eager to see where the story goes.
This trailer gives an excellent summation and demonstration of what we can expect from this show:
Tyranny is about a young sculptor, Daniel McCarthy, who, after volunteering in a brain mapping experiment at Berkeley, begins seeing puzzling images he believes are visions of future events. Several years of repeated experiments cause his wife to leave him as he descends further into a maddening obsession to fit together pieces of a major global crisis about to occur. Eleven years and many crises later, he leads a group of revolutionaries, known as the Strawman Underground, on a mission to out-maneuver the conspirators before they gain total control of the people. That's it in a nutshell, but really it's barely scratching the surface.
