The Black Dawn

The Black Dawn is a low-budget indie web serial set after a virus wipes out most of the world's population. The virus has turned the sky black, so this post-apocalyptic future takes place on an Earth constantly shrouded in darkness. Which is not only a great money saving technique but also offers the opportunity for large dollops of creepiness. The show follows the survivors as they figure out what happened and rebuild society.

The prequel The Black Dawn: Catalyst is also online now, and sets up everything that's taking place in the main web series.

It’s another impressive indie Science Fiction project; the quality of indie SF films being produced online now are pretty awesome.

James,

Thanks for the link, this sounds great. I wonder if we need a new term to distinguish between the type of independent film shown at Sundance versus one made in somebody's garage, or for web only release.
