Just recently I found out about The Silent City, an upcoming web series that is going to be released sometime in May / April this year. Although it appears that it’s not completely focused on zombies, but more on storytelling and a post-apocalyptic setting where just one single survivor is left in New York, the upcoming web series also seems to have some zombies in (and more than 1 character) and is completely exciting.
The Silent City raised funds on Kickstarter and is now preparing for launch. It is shortly described as “A new take on the post-apocalyptic road movie, The Silent City explores a world where one wrong turn can mean the extinction of the species.”
What I really liked about this upcoming web series (the first season will have 5 3-minute long episodes) was the explanation the director gave: “We want to show that smart, meaningful, soulful films don’t have to be boring, and that zombie films don’t have to be brainless.” That is very interesting and promising!
And of course, there are not just words to back the upcoming series up! There’s also a teaser trailer for The Silent City available on YouTube and it looks amazing. I am really excited about this project and honestly I can’t wait to see it! Until then, the teaser is all we’ve got:
