“AIDAN 5”: Amazing Sci-Fi Film Noir Webseries

Wow, this is pretty awesome.  I just stumbled upon a new webseries called AIDAN 5.  What intrigued me was its premise (a detective trying to solve the murders of his clones) and its mashup of genres: pulp fiction, science-fiction, and film noir.  I’m sold!  And when I watched the trailer and its first episode, I quickly counted 4 woofy guys.  BONUS!  The protagonist may not be as husky as I would prefer, but he has a handsome face that reminds me of Drew Powell and Vincent D’Onofrio (whom I have criminally not posted about, though I once mentioned his similarity with Drew).

Here is a brief synopsis of Aidan 5:

No Sets, No Budget, No Problem…

Produced locally in the heart of Columbus, Ohio and based on the award-winning 48-hr film festival short, AIDAN 5 is a no-budget, sci-fi web series made solely with an all-volunteer cast & crew under pressured time restrictions. The goal: to create an ambitious series with creativity and determination as the only resources.

Set in a futuristic city, AIDAN 5 chronicles the journey of one detective who must unravel the mystery behind the serial killings of his own clones. This 15-episode living comic book is told through a unique style of filmmaking and sketched art.

The official series release is soon approaching – be sure to share us with your friends and register your email to receive news, updates, and special offers as the story progresses.

We hope you enjoy the show!

This is the Season 1 trailer:

Pretty nifty, yes?  The whole world appeals to my Blade Runner fetish, Sin City obsession, and many noirish video games I’ve played in the past.  It’s just amazing to see how they could pull off using hand-drawn animation as their actual backdrop and set props!

But, anyway, you be the judge.  Here is the first episode of Aidan 5:
