We’ve been working with guys over at BRNK on a trailer for their exciting new app. What follows is part fiction of our times, part real world events as they unfold. It’s an experiment in how fast fiction – shadowing the news a few short weeks behind – is researched and written.
The first chapters take place in the summer of 2012 (with glimpses ahead of us, like the Prologue below). By the time we reach the end of the Pilot Episode the real world events idea will have crept up on you – and the here and now.
From Episode Two onwards you’ll begin to recognise themes and international incidents from recent weeks, through the eyes of fictitious characters we hope you’ll come to care about.
