Living between the cracks of society and eeking out a living in the criminal underworld, there are those who live their lives between the neon lights of the world’s metroplexes and the dim shadows of the alleys and forgotten places. Some survive with charm and wit, others cordite and steel, and a rare few are gifted with the ability to touch the magic that has returned to the world. None of it is easy. All of it is deadly. One wrong move will push you from the dim shadows to the blackness of death in a blink.
This is the place where 3D, Bulldog, Curie, Floyd, Hood, and Cor ply their skills and make their names.
So, all of this is about a trailer, which means there’s an entire series to focus on after. What exactly is “Chicago Shadows” and what’s our big picture plan? Sure, “Chicago Shadows” is going to be a fantasy cyberpunk web series, but what does that mean exactly?
Rem Alternis is all set to pull the trigger on a six-episode season of “Chicago Shadows”. The scripts are written and a creative team assembled. What’s left is the funding. Each episode will cost over $200K to produce, and each episode will be approximately 30 minutes. It’s a huge project and we’re dedicated to making it happen. Of course, securing that level of funding requires taking the passion from our community —you— and amplifying that momentum to expand interest and prove feasibility.
Our first episode, the pilot, takes the elements of our trailer to the next level. You meet Curie in our trailer, of course. She’s a relative newcomer to the shadows but in the pilot, she’ll join a team of veterans pulling one of their own out of a tight spot.
