Steampunk Thriller "PROGRESS" Launches Official Kickstarter Campaign.
In this high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat thriller, 19th Century England has a steam-powered Internet and Jack the Ripper is posting files of his crimes on the Victorian version of WikiLeaks. Oscar Lerwill, the best hacker of the Empire, plays a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the killer under the eyes of a hypocrite and repressive monarchy bent on censoring the web.
Ben Whalen (To Be King) plays Oscar Lerwill while Rebecca Lynch (Game Night) plays Lila De Clide, an enticing cam-harlot and Oscar's love interest. Derek Houck (Napoleon Bon Appetit) plays Adam Rhett, a rival hacker and owner of the rogue website WikiPunkProgress.com. The series is written by seasoned screenwriter Armando Saldanamora and is Directed by visionary gothic artist Brad Strickman.
PROGRESS is produced by both Saldanamora and Nicole Wright (The Philosopher Kings). Director of Photography is Boa Simon (Summer Campbell) and Costume Designer is Shannon Arrant of Tatterdemalion Shoes. All original illustrations are done by Andrea Garduno and Strickman will be in charge of editing and animation. Also on board as Production Designer is David King of We Will Haunt You.
The teaser for this new series will be released on Halloween via the kickstarter page for PROGRESS. Wright says: "The production of our teaser is made possible by the generous support of Studios60.com for providing the location, Shanahan Printing for donating marketing materials and Tatterdemalion Shoes for costumes. We are very thankful for all the tremendous support we have received and we can't wait to show our teaser to all the Steampunk enthusiasts and Ripperologists out there."
