Last year we introduced, what we thought, was the interesting web series Broken Toy from the independent studio Forewarned Films.
This isn’t some over-blown Hollywood big-budget film or TV venture; it’s a handful of people getting together and making a movie in tiny snippets, webisodes, and sharing them with the world.
There are a lot of great web series available on the Internet right now and most of them are better than some shows currently on TV. Personally, I’m following about 10 different web series at the moment - but only about 5 shows on TV. I don’t know if it’s because I’m just not into the premises’ of most TV shows or that I enjoy not having to commit more than 10 minutes at a time to a web show – either way, I still say that web series are the future of home entertainment. Now if NetFlix would just allow me to stream them through my Wii...
Broken Toy was directed by Letia Clouston and written by Matt Clouston. He along with David Westberg, Ricardo Mamood-Vega and others, star in the series. The official synopsis for Broken Toy is as follows:
Astounding progress has been made by the United States government in the development of the once-theoretical Mach 24 jet engine. Fast jets, however, need fast pilots and a program to re-engineer aviators with accelerated reflexes and neural pathways capable of flying these fighters has been a disaster. Four prime candidates were upgraded. All four died horrifically. A fifth - never meant as anything more than a disposable test subject - has unexpectedly survived the strain to his nervous system. Hunted and confused, he is now a violent fugitive on the run from his grave.
