An immersive web series by Red on Black Productions.
21st October, 2011. The Rapture happens, as predicted earlier this year, but it’s not the fire and brimstone we’ve come to fear – it’s merely a routine earth upgrade which happens every century or so.
Season One of Raptured follows a lovelorn 30-something, Sarah Bailey, who is tricked into being in charge of the Rapture. Instead of the seamless upgrade that’s happened in the past, half the people have been left behind. It’s now Sarah’s job to make sure they make it over.
Using social networks, we involved audiences in the creation of the web series from featured music to roles in the series.
The first season received over 750,000 views on distributor Koldcast as well as pick up from Broadcast Magazine, multiple podcasts and a place on two ComicCon 2011 panels.
Season two will include a fully immersive experience across the web alongside live events and a web comic.
