AfterworldAfterworld. Brent Friedman’s Afterworld is a episodic web series about the last man on the planet, and it uses a mix of animation and stills to showcase a world in which the population has mysteriously vanished.

A total web page environment with an ongoing plot told in 5 minute episodes, the plot is addicting and the design elements are really well done. I especially like the journal, a really nice touch.

    What a great find. Very very addictive!

    I have only watched episode one, but I sure hope this has nothing to do with the Rapture.

    That was my EXACT thought.

    Boy that would totally suck if this were a scheme to get people to believe in some conservative Christian theory. Gives me the willies, not to mention I would feel guilty for submitting it to the Buddha.

    Nope so far it seems to be terrorist related and possible EMP. So no rapture thankfully.

    When I submitted I had watched episodes 1-4 and read a small portion of the journal. Now that I have watched more I am not only totally hooked, I am relieved as well.

    Ok. I have watched all the episodes and I have to say this is the COOLEST thing ever!

    Great find.

    Hey, thanks for the plug! Nice to know people are watching…

    BTW, it’s not “Brent Friedman’s” Afterworld. There is very talented and dedicated (read: “underpaid”) team of animators, editors, writers and producers (not to mention voice talent) who work on this series. Without me the show may not be as convoluted, but without them there would be no show. Just had to clear that up… 😉

    Brent, Amazing job! Who ever took the time to develop the content behind the journal is, well, really creative. It was one of my favorite parts of the site. Thanks.

  • Brent Friedman

    The journal is a team effort as well. The writing staff puts down the words and the production staff lays out the visual design. The intent was to add another layer of the story for those who wanted to dig a little deeper into the universe.

    Glad you’re enjoying the show…
