Kirill uncovered

Just in case this in any way floats your boat:

Hi there,

My name is Rupert, and I’m working on a new Sci-fi project called Kirill, in conjunction with Microsoft MSN and Digital Studios (a little >digital studio part of Endemol UK), and we would really like your opinion and feedback on the project so far.

Kirill has ten episodes, and then tells the other parts of its story through blogs and other bits of video from around the internet. It’s clever, but not so clever it stops you getting involved, and it stars that guy out of Pirates of the Caribbean (No, not Johnny Depp – David Schofield). Anyway – we would like you to have an exclusive sneak peak.

The 1st episode launches this Thursday 30th October, but we’d like to keep everyone guessing what they think it is over the next three days.

We’ve just finished building the blog

Over the next few days we’ll be adding the teaser trailer and limited >behind the scenes images. From Friday we will have the 1st episode up… The next episodes will follow every few days.

These ten episodes are only the prequel to a much bigger drama that Digital Studios are trying to get off the ground for early next year. If you like the episodes, Digital Studios would really like you to help them make both the prequel, and the drama into something we can all claim we had a part in, so please give us your feedback on the blog.

‘Something that has been made for the internet, by people who love the internet.’

So it’s a thing on the Internet that’s going to publish some episodes soon. Can you wait?

PS I found this vid if it’s of any help
