What do you get when you mix together a sinister corporation operating on the fringes of science, mysterious cranial implants, murder, and time travel?
Out of Time, an ambitious sci-fi web series from creator-director Rodney V. Smith.
The series tells the story of Chris Allman (Steve Kasan) a man suffering from blackouts stemming from an unknown cause.
Seeking relief, Chris has inserted into his head an experimental implant created by the shadowy SOSUMI Corporation.
Tragically, Chris witness the murder of his beloved girlfriend Sara (Julia MacPherson). To his dismay, he finds himself time traveling to different points within the last year of his own past.
Confused and desperate, Chris focuses on one goal - preventing Sara's murder.
However, the SOSUMI corporation has been secretly monitoring Chris. They are aware of his time jumps, and will stop at nothing to reacquire their implant.
As Chris struggles to do the impossible, change the past, he must stay one step ahead of his pursuers.
What immediately sets Out Of Time apart from many other web series is its scope.
The pilot episode, The Accidental Time Traveller, clocks in at almost 15 minutes, and is actually a self-contained short film. The producers plan for subsequent episodes to also be approximately 15 minutes in length.
This is a sprawling epic-in-the-making.
The series mythology has been fully realized. Time travel abides by a definite set of specific laws. There are supporting characters who have their own agendas beyond the obvious.
The cinematography is very kinetic, adding to the viewer sharing in Chris' disorientation and anguish.
And last, but not least, the visual effects are gorgeous!
Information from computers are often displayed on mid-air "virtual screens." An effect one must see to fully appreciate.
