beActive Launches Brand New
Sci-Fi Transmedia series based on Collider Experiments
Dublin based and Multi-award-winning transmedia production company beActive has today announced the launch of Collider, a sci-fi story told across a range of different platforms from the 4th of June. Collider tells the story of six people transported to a post-apocalyptic 2018, where they have to fight to discover how they got there, how to survive, and how to get back to the present.
The story focuses on a young scientist Peter, who sabotages CERN laboratories Hadron Collider when his credibility is wrongfully destroyed. By doing so he accidentally transports himself via a wormhole to a world ruined by natural disasters and at war with the Unknown. He brings with him five people who have ‘jumped’ from different times and different places, but who each hold vital clues needed to return back to their present times. Peter keeps getting flashbacks and a sense of deja-vu linked to the future. If he’s right then he has just 36 hours to figure out a way to get to CERN, reverse the wormhole and prevent the apocalypse because when the clock runs out so does Earth’s existence.
The Collider story will be told across several platforms, including comic books, webisodes, a Web site www.colliderworld.com and an app/game which will go on sale the first week of June. The Comic Book will be distributed by iVerse Media in North America through their Comic Plus comic book store, and also available on Apple iBookstore and Amazon Kindle store. A feature film will be shot in the Fall for a 2013 release and a full social media experience is available on www.facebook.com/colliderworld
