AIDAN 5 blew me away.
This inventive mix of crime noir and hard sci-fi drama is without a doubt one of the most imaginative web series available.
Clones are created for a variety of purposes, such as: manual labor, to bolster the military, and other more perverse uses.
The series follows the exploits of hard-boiled police detective James Aidan as he attempts to solve the most mystifying and personal case of his career - who is killing his clones?
Armed with such a compelling, provocative plot coupled with sensational acting, AIDAN 5 sucks you into its gritty, stoic world within the first few minutes of the opening scenes.
But one of the project's crowning achievements is its unique visual style.
Filmed only in black and white, what further sets this series apart is its highly unconventional presentation.
The live-action characters inhabit a world comprised of highly detailed graphic art.
Though the concept may sound clunky on paper, its execution succeeds beautifully, as the official series trailer attests...
Last, but not least, the entire cast and production team worked on a volunteer basis with a non-existent budget to complete AIDAN 5.
The result is one of the most unique sci-fi dramas I've ever seen on the web. It's just another testament to what can be accomplished solely with passion, talent, skill and dedication.
A total of 16 episodes between an average of 5 to 13 minutes in length were completed for the first season.
To view the entire first season, visit the series channel on YouTube: Aidan 5.
I highly recommend this wildly entertaining series.
