Machines that serve us more than we serve them is a guarantee as long as we are smarter than they are. What happens when this changes?
Time Travelers is an animated web science fiction adventure series created using Second Life as the graphical and animation engine in a creative process called machinima. In it, three teens – Sofia, Trevor and Mariah – travel forward in time to become newly minted Mek fighters – defenders of the future. They must protect a mysterious and growing ORB from the onslaught, and must learn to understand and control their powers in a fight against a Singularity gone bad.
Global crises, robotic acceleration and survival in a post-singularity world are themes, which propel the action. Will humanity’s strengths affect change for the good, or will our weaknesses allow a more sinister plan to emerge? Central characters demonstrate the consequences of technology, both good and bad, while highlighting important questions relevant today.
The series now with a newly released Episode 5 has won laurels from the Los Angeles Movie Awards and been shown at Animation festivals such as Blue Plum and New Media Film Festival.
