Machinima released the first episode of their new web-series Enormous, which deals with a world overrun with giant monsters and a group of surviving humans who are dedicated to fighting back.
It’s based on the graphic novel of the same name by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour.
This first episode was directed by Ben David Grabinski from a script by Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal.
The film picks up years after E Day, the worldwide attack of massive insect like beasts, as the remaining humans from all walks of life must band together to survive and fight back against the monstrous invaders. Viewers are introduced to Ellen (Ceren Lee), a mother who has lost her child, and watch as she prepares to play a major role in the human resistance. The cast also includes Steve Braun (Wrong Turn 2), and Erica Gimpel (Veronica Mars).
The hit graphic novella series ENORMOUS (http://www.theenormouscomic.com), tells of how humanity is plunged down the food chain when an ecological event creates gargantuan beasts that decimate civilization. The series explores how humans react and cope with survival from multiple points of views and from multiple settings around the planet. In the tone of CLOVERFIELD and THE WALKING DEAD, ENORMOUS focuses on strong characters and complicated relationships with the monsters as the background.
