Press release from Filmgraphics Entertainment
Filmgraphics is beaming with pride once again due to continued success from one of our young Directors. Screen Australia has just announced their investment in the Marc Furmie directed sci-fi thriller series Airlock. The investment has been made through their “Multiplatform Drama Production” program. This is the first time that Screen Australia has invested directly in a series that will be distributed primarily using BitTorrent, the peer-to-peer filesharing service. Marc has recently completed music videos for Andrew De Silva (Winner of Australia's Got Talent 2012) and Timomatic, as well as advertising spots for Telstra and Red Rooster.
Airlock Synopsis: Jonah is tasked with what should be a routine investigation of a death onboard a ship that is docking with his space station. Jonah soon learns that the ship is actually a people-smuggling vessel, and that a strategic attack is being mounted on the space station.
Jonah must overcome generations-old intergalactic prejudices in order to save those he can and warn humanity of the impending threat.
