‘Aidan 5′: Clone Detectives in a Dystopian Ohio

19 January 2011 3:40 PM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

With the influx of new web series what seems like every other day, the way to make your series stand out is finding a unique way to convey your story. Aidan 5 from Room 101 Productions has done just that. Produced by Ben Bays and John Jackson, the series is filmed with live actors against a fully hand-drawn, black and white environment. This is just one of several unique aspects of this sci-fi noir series, based on a winner of the 48 Hour Film Project Contest. Set in a futuristic world (2045) in “New Columbus”, Ohio, where cloning is legal and monitored by the government, Aidan 5 follows a detective, Aidan, who agrees to be cloned four times (the government-dictated limit) as a job requirement. This measure is taken because, as the pilot episode states, “a clone detective can get more done.”. The clones work 24-hours a day and are able to solve more cases. »
