New Web Series, AFTER JUDGMENT, Explores A Post-Apocalyptic World, Where
Viewers Are Directly Transported Into A "What If" Scenario
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 /CNW/ -- "AFTER JUDGMENT,"
(http://www.afterjudgment.com) an original Sci Fi Web Series about a group of
post-apocalyptic survivors searching for an elusive entry into paradise will
premiere with a multi-site launch on October 8th, 2008. Touching on the
uncertain times we now live in, "After Judgment" re-imagines a doomsday
experience and gives a unique glimpse into our own potentially grim future.
The web premiere marks the debut of the first season, already tapped with
international broadcast distribution, handled by Toronto based OUAT Media.
Created by writer/ director Michael Davies, "After Judgment" stars an
ensemble cast led by Joel Bryant (The Heartbreak Kid), Taryn O'Neill (Navy
N.C.I.S.), Stephanie Thorpe (Ashes) and Tim Halling (60Frame's Cockpit).
Bryant plays the lead role of Steven, the dark but charismatic ex-priest who
leads the rag-tag band of strangers on their dangerous journey.
The first season of sixteen 4-minute episodes was independently financed
and produced by Davies' Captain Films banner (http://www.captainfilms.com) in
association with Ultimatum Entertainment. In addition to the show's site, the
series will be viewable on multiple video portals, including YouTube.

multi-genre director, with several award-winning features and shorts to his
credit. But his first love is Sci Fi, best displayed by his most recent
shorts, "Message: Received" and "Ashes," both having secured distribution with
"I'm ecstatic that we were able to bring this awesome mythology to life
for Sci Fi fans everywhere," Davies explains. "We're living in a society
that's facing some intense challenges, so we're telling a 'what if' story and
giving our audience an opportunity to create a community around our world, as
only the web allows us to do."
