Cut and paste from l5-series.com

L5 is a crowd-funded, independent miniseries project that began on Kickstarter.com.

With an overall budget of $15,000, the Hemogoblin team worked countless hours in post production over a year to create the pilot episode. Our desire was to demonstrate how far you can go on a shoestring, outside the system, using disruptive innovation to build a film from the ground up.

Well, we are beginning to come out of our caves and see sunlight for the first time in ages. Exhausted, with bats in our beards and nearly penniless, we are finally approaching our release day for L5, living proof that cloud based, low budget production can produce wonders.

Story premise:

Imagine returning from an exhausting adventure only to find that your home is abandoned, empty. Not just your home, but your neighborhood, your city, in fact, everyone, everywhere, seems to be missing. This is what happens to the crew of the first manned mission to Barnard’s Star – they return after awakening from suspended animation to find that their ship-board AI has sent them on a relativistic tour of the stellar neighborhood while they slumbered, dilating time so severely that nearly 200 years have passed on Earth. After coming to, they discover their vessel is adrift at LaGrange point 5, within visual range of a vast O’neill cylinder-colony. The night side of the Earth shows no lights, and no one answers their calls across all frequencies. They have no choice but to dock with the colony and explore its cavernous interior in the hopes of finding help. When they find the colony to be airless and devoid of life, the remains of human civilization baking in the Sun for decades, their predicament becomes even more dire. Following in the traditions of great legendary hard science fiction, their exploration of this relic of their own civilization will take them on a trans-humanistic and spiritual sojourn.

L5 is a hard science fiction dramatic miniseries for online distribution. The first episode of the miniseries will be 25 minutes, and will depict the late homecoming of the astronauts and the first steps towards exploring the interior of L5.

The pilot episode of L5 wil be distributed through Vimeo and Youtube in high definition, as well as quicktime format on our website, and will be promoted as viral content on web forums, news fed sites, emails, as well as a production blog that will have production information and artwork, and most excitingly, the step by step construction process of the replica spacesuits.

Distribution and production of further episodes will be determined by the response to the pilot. Possible distribution methods include branded content or partnering with a torrent site.

So what guarantees that this will be ‘hard’ science fiction? The director, Stanley Von Medvey. Before pursuing concept artwork and film making as a career, Stanley began as an astrophysics student at the University of Chicago. He designed small payloads for the space shuttle and NASA’s sounding rocket program. Since switching careers, he has maintained close ties with the aerospace community, is an active member of the National Space Society, engaged in such projects as working with think tanks and lobby groups to promote Space Based Solar Power through viral marketing. In short, Stanley is an obsessed science geek.

What will make it have dramatic punch? Tom Ptasinski, our writer. He served as head of development at David Foster Productions and has worked with Frank Darabont. He has an extensive directorial background in short films, web series and theater, and is presently working in Hollywood as a writer and director. He also runs his own successful sketch comedy troupe, and is supremely versatile as both a compelling dramatic writer and a sketch comic.

This, along with the talented help of Studio Hemogoblin, will give you an unforgettable, transcendental experience, right here in your browser.

I have 3 Bronze(SD) streaming tokens to give away for vodo. Please reply here if you want one.

'njoy,
Mark

This really is a great piece of science fiction. Too bad LW wasn't used, but it does look great and worth watching and enjoying. I was actually one of the first who donated - didn't have money, but it looked like a worthwhile effort.

Best of luck to them!
