The apocalyptic sci-fi webseries titled "2012" has now completed its first season and is quickly gathering views through its Youtube channel. Created by Guatemalan multiple-award winning filmmaker Julio Ponce Palmieri and produced alongside Canadian owned Freitas Films, "2012" was shot entirely on location in the city of Toronto, Canada.
It also contains additional scenes that were filmed in Guatemala in the cities of Antigua, Atitlan & the ancient Mayan city of Tikal, adding an uncanny level of authenticity to the project.
The eight episodes tell the story of a handful of people who survive a devastating alien invasion of Earth that happened on the last day of the Mayan calendar: December 21, 2012. It focuses on the trials and tribulations of the survivors and the many dangers that lurk in the post-apocalyptic winter fields, two months after the initial attack.
Transmitted totally free via Youtube, viewers can enjoy the episodes (called chapters in the project) and dive into a mix of sci-fi, drama, mystery, zombies, aliens and overall apocalypse mayhem.
The script is thought-provoking and exciting, the performances are strong, the SFXs are intense and it definitely leaves the viewer wanting more and eagerly awaiting the upcoming season.
