How innovative is the project

BIOLUMINESCENCE is a 10min 10 episodes digital series produced for mobiles. It is a sci-fi / horror genre story targeted at millenials. It pictures the journey of LIZ CLARKE in the discovery of intriguing and dangerous aquatic creatures. This extraordinary yet grounded ‘hard sci-fi’ world draws inspiration from The Abyss, Interstellar and Cannibal Holocaust. The breathtaking visuals fuse 3D photorealistic animation with real ‘YouTube-style’ shots, effectively suspending disbelief to serve up an epic, addictive, frenzied story from start to finish, fully fixed to our time.
