@ericvancewalton, @dougkarr, @the-alien and @andrarchy are thrilled to announce a brand new project made by Steemians who met through Steemit.com, “HardFork”: the first blockchain narrative mini series. A crypto-noir thriller set in a near future world where decentralized factions work to overthrow their society's Central Financial Services (the CFS, hauntingly similar to a militarized version of a certain three letter agency that we all know so well).

A Steem-Backed Professional-Grade Series

Bridging state of the art filmmaking and storytelling techniques with the underrepresented and truly fascinating landscape of blockchain in the narrative space, HardFork will evoke a detailed future forward sci-fi world in which the Steem Blockchain plays an integral part. The same story that will propel our characters through a “Golden Age of Television” style series will also subtly educate the audience on the blockchain in a highly entertaining fashion.

Fans of the series--guided by award-winning director Doug Karr, writer Eric Vance Walton and accomplished actor Christopher James Baker--will invariably become fans of Steemit.com and cryptocurrency as a whole. An ultimate byproduct in creating this narrative work will not only be to entertain, but to help incite mass adoption of cryptocurrency—encouraging awareness, understanding, and investment from the masses.

Centralized v. Decentralized Factions

The tension between decentralized and centralized factions and those seeking a middle ground will propel the protagonist, Vangelis, and the rest of our cutting edge characters through a constantly unexpected and drama-filled narrative that will cast a crypto spell and leave audiences constantly craving more.

Having assembled a team of highly skilled and knowledgeable creatives, our aim is launch HardFork in a matter of months, beginning with a trailer funded through crowdsourced marketing on Steemit, and then moving rapidly into production on the full series.

INFLUENCING CULTURE

The biggest success of a media project of this nature is if it helps magnetize a community of highly engaged fans and is seen by the widest possible audience, and we feel Steemit is the perfect platform to nurture that engagement, collaboration and springboard into the public consciousness. From there, the sky’s the limit in terms of how the HardFork Series can influence culture.

An Invitation To Collaborate

This is an exciting time for us. We’re electrified to get your feedback and invite your collaboration and involvement in what we view as a community project with potentially massive reach … but only with your help. Want to see your name in this credit block or get involved in any way, shape or form? If you’re interested in discussing opportunities around the series please feel free to reach out to us on steemit chat at our handles there: @doug.karr or @eric.walton

Thanks so much for your interest and help. We’re so excited to bring the HardFork Series to the community and to the screen and are eager to get your feedback and ideas so that we can make this the best mini series possible for our most important audience: Steemians.

Stay tuned for more, beginning with @ericvancewalton’s upcoming post, New Territory, about his work collaborating on the series so far.

We'd love it if people posted about their ideas on Steemit using the #hardforkseries tag, we just want to point out that in order to avoid any liability that we will be assuming everything posted within that tag is intended to be a derivative work of the HardFork series and so the HardFork team cannot be liable for any apparent similarities between the content and the final product.

Good grief, this sounds utterly splendid! Great dudes behind it and I look forward to the results. Writing is key. I have high hopes!

Hell yeah!!! This sounds sweet. Can't wait. I see a lot of garbage pushed recently as "the next True Blood" or the new blablabla and it all falls flat.

Thanks @meesterboom! We're doing our best to create a truly unique and captivating series. I hope you will like it!

I am absolutely sure it will be a winner!

Oh yeah! This sounds amazing!!

How are you going to monetize it?

My dear beloved steemit members. In the end, I love the inner love and respect of my heart. Today, I will tell you some truth about the purpose of all of you. Hope everyone will think about the matter. Initially, I want to say that this is a social networking site. It is not the means of earning money. However, yes it is creating a good opportunity for us. Which is good for all. But sadly, there is no post in it. Look at it. And one thing is very difficult that everyone just wants to follow him, but he does not follow anyone. So my request to everyone is mine. That everyone is helping everyone by steemit Build a family

To say frankly, I am replying literally for your upvote. As I am a newbie, what else is important than upvotes and steempower.

That is important, however I think you will find that you are best employed to find better ways of getting those other than saying. Can I have?

Although there is a part of me that admires yours honesty :0)

10/10 would see Hard Fork. Supporting you guys all the way.
