Los Angeles, CA – Steampunk Partners Announce the Launch of the TINKER Web Series Kickstarter.
Prepare for a high-flying steampunk adventure in this all-new sci-fi/fantasy series about a pair of talented inventors called, the TINKERS. Set in an alternate history in the late 19th century, TINKER takes place in a smoggy, overpopulated San Francisco where the TINKERS ply their trade to the wealthy and famous. When a wealthy and eccentric noblewoman from British Hong Kong named, Lady Cushing, hires the father/daughter duo, they are instantly thrust into a world of intrigue, lies, danger and excitement in which the balance of worldly power rests unaware, alternately in both the calloused hands of Sho Tinker and the gloved hands of Lady Cushing.
Featuring stylish steampunk wardrobe, props, sets, digital environments not limited to reality, and an original score and soundtrack of steampunk inspired music TINKER aims to expand the boundaries of Steampunk science fiction by further transforming it from what many know as just an aesthetic to evolving it into a multi-ethnic, culture- exploring, collection of stories that does for Steampunk what Star Trek did for science fiction back in the sixties. This includes: mature themes, exotic locations, sub-plots, drama and action, always making the effort to keep true to the ‘punk’ in Steampunk by going outside currently established ‘rules’ of the genre, and fusing the diverse talents of several industries into a new kind of steam- powered animal. Even if you don’t actively follow the subculture of Steampunk, there is still something here for you.
The Web Series will consist of 14 first-season ‘Webisodes’.
STEAMPUNK PARTNERS will distribute the show initially on the Web. The episodes will be available on both the TINKER Web site: www.TinkerSteampunkSeries.com as well as on Vimeo. Regardless of the different outlets that will eventually carry the episodes, the individual, first-run programs will always be free to view on the Web site. Collections of episodes or seasons will be available on Blu-Ray for purchase at a later date.
