Welcome back to the series of posts here at SciFi Mafia that we’re calling Web Series Wednesday where we devote a space to the wonderment of the web series. Every Wednesday we’ll cover an awesome web series and give you all the info to get into it.
This week we’re covering Enormous.
Based on the comic book series, this new web series from Machinima, Enormous, follows different groups of post-apocalyptic humans as they try and avoid giant (several stories tall) creatures all while trying to find a cure that is plaguing the remaining humans. Well, almost all of the remaining humans. Children seem to not only have an immunity for a certain amount of time, but might also be the answer to a cure.
From director BenDavid Grabinski (COST OF LIVING) and producers Adrian Askarieh (HITMAN, AGENT 47) and Joshua Wexler (MORTAL KOMBAT) comes ENORMOUS.
The world as we know it has ended. A group of survivors on a dangerous mission come face to face with nefarious humans and giant monsters. Starring Ceren Lee, Steven Brand, Billy Miller, Erica Gimpel, Garrett Coffey, Charles Melton, Dallas Liu, Joe Swanberg, Simon Barrett, Todd Farmer, and Nathan Moore.
Based on the comic book by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour.
Here’s the first episode.
Web Series: Enormous
I like that they’re focusing on the characters rather than trying too hard with CGI on such a low budget project. The eye of the “giant” was pretty great, but the wide shot of the whole creature was just sort of “meh” for me. I think it has great potential with the acting and writing caliber that’s showcased in this first episode.
I give Enormous minisodes Four out of Five Stars.
