If you have been keeping watch on The Lounge, you know we follow and focus on a few online video series. We believe it is the future of entertainment and one of the biggest reasons we focus on the indie content creators, and musicians. The ability to expand talents in a world of affordable ways of creating content will shift the ability to show off talent and expand the horizons of entertainment as we know it.
Osiris is an example of great, simple story telling and use of good camera and lighting to create a good sci-fi/ thriller story. We have posted previous episodes, as they have released them. The story of a 300 or so year old handsome young looking immortal who lives in modern day Georgia and is persued by overly zealous types who want to use his ability of staying young as a scientific breakthrough. The episodes are short but always leaving you wanting more. The characters are well cast, allowing you to get into the story. I do recommend watching the series, as we expect many more to come.
Make sure to leave comments on what you think of the story below.
