Trans-media production company beActive have released another cross-platform science fiction creation, Collider. The new sci-fi concept will be available in various formats, spanning comics (print and digital), live-action web-series, app/online game, graphic novel and eventually becoming a feature film, to be released in 2013.
The first of the weekly series of eight webisodes will be available from this week on beActive’s You Tube channel and stars BAFTA award-winning Scottish actor Iain Robertson of Rab C. Nesbitt and Basic Instinct fame.
The edge-of-your-seat action sees Iain’s character, Peter Ansay, a quantum physicist who is ostracised by the scientific community after issuing warnings about the dangers of The Hadron Collider. – the company say.
Peter takes matters into his own hands when he breaks into CERN, the facility on the Franco-Swiss border, to sabotage the collider and accidentally transports himself and five others to 2018 where the post apocalyptic world is racked by natural disasters and at war with the “Unknown”. The six time travelers now have to fight to discover how they got there, how to survive and most importantly, how to get back to the present!
beActive’s co-founder and CEO Nuno Bernardo said: “Collider is a real sci-fi spectacular! By transporting the viewer into another dimension we are really able to delve into each of the characters pasts and follow their journey as they fight to return back to their present time.”
