The award-winning sci-fi web series SUBVERSE unveils an alternate reality where the world’s population works, plays, and even has romantic encounters almost entirely online via virtual reality.
The series follows Max (Eric Robinson), a socially maladjusted computer programmer who finds himself attracted to a beautiful co-worker named Allison (Alexandra Rey).
The attraction is mutual and Allison makes a startling suggestion: she wants to go out on a date with Max in the real world. Excited, Max agrees, but his social anxiety gets the better of him. He bails on the date at the last minute.
Angry and ashamed of himself, Max returns home and retreats into virtual reality. During his session, he stumbles upon a portal that leads to the “subverse,” the underworld of virtual reality.
Despite warnings from the internet’s security protocols, Max enters the subverse and begins a surreal odyssey into the depths of pleasure, desire, and depravity
Created by filmmaker Joseph White, SUBVERSE showcases a virtual reality unlike most depicted in genre media. In the series, the underbelly of the virtual world is a provocative kaleidoscope of animated clip art, streaming video, frizzy pop culture memes, and stream-of-consciousness graphic imagery.
SUBVERSE crafts a visually arresting, compelling narrative about the potential - and pitfalls - of technology’s ever-growing influence on our personal and digital lives.
