Type: Web Series
Role: Writer, Director, Production Designer
2121 is a dystopian sci-fi web series, of 7 x 8 minute episodes, starring TV legend Gary Sweet. Designing the series has centred on finding several appropriate locations around Melbourne, with a particular look that fits the vibe of the world. I’ve also designed a uniform for many of the characters who work for Counsel, as well as the Counsel logo, and creating patches for the uniforms.

2121 is currently in post-production, for release in 2020.

If at any time a citizen breaks any of Counsel’s numerous rules, they will be expelled to the Outlands—a wasteland outside the city walls, without the benefits of its clean air and water.
Inevitably, from the depths of the misery of this society, a revolution is forming. A group called Defiance is planning a complex attack on Counsel, aiming to bring down both the AI and those who serve it. They have spent months recruiting members, turning assets in high places, and cooking up their own brand of digital weaponry—and now it’s time to put their plan into action…”
