‘Atomic Kingdom’ is a collection of stories that take place within the future of Australia after world war 3.
Australia remains virtually untouched due to the assistance of a group of alien guardians but with one big difference, there are 20 islands instead of a handful of states.
Now a power hungry tyrant is hell bent on rejoining the islands into a one government leadership as it was before WW3. But after years of peace in the way things have become this would cause much chaos and destruction of the new and evolved society that inhabit the country nicknamed the Atomic Kingdom. Although containing the same characters the focus switches on different characters each episode. Much like the show ‘Skins’. Entire show was filmed over a 2 year period (or just under) and edited over a period of a year. Everyone involved balanced work and life with filming.
My name is James and I am the creator of Atomic Kingdom.
I have a minor role in the show itself (as I am an actor too and wanted to flex my chops a bit). However, im not involved too much as i was mostly busy behind the camera.
I love learning and like to grow and evolve as a person and creator/performer.
Below is the big final episode 10 entitled Iron Hearts. Its kind of the peak of our efforts on this series.
Interested in your thoughts all over but particularly in these areas:
. There are multiple character stories, but do you feel there are too many? And do any stand out that you feel should have been focused on more? Are there any you feel should have been less focused on or even cut?
. Do you feel there are too many characters? And if so, which do you feel I should have focused on more? And less?
. The overall story, is it clear? Could it have been strengthened? And how so?
. Considering we had a very large concept for a no money production, do you feel it was displayed effectively?
If not, how do you think we could have altered things to make that particular concept work?
. We promote this show as an action, fantasy. We’ve only just recently added “drama” to that description. Do you feel this is pretty accurate? How could you suggest we promote it as?
. MOST importantly…is it entertaining?
. If we continued with a season 2 OR spin off series, what changes would you suggest?
