Tinker the Web Series Enters Its Final Two Weeks of Crowdfunding

Aug 21 2013, 3:20am CDT | by PR.com

New developments in the pre-production steampunk science fiction series.

North Hollywood, CA, August 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Tinker the Web Series continues it's crowdfunding campaign.

After weeks of releasing a flurry of behind the scenes photos & video, conceptual artwork, commentary, and press interviews about it's pre-production web series, Tinker wants to ask you “What if the Future Came Early?” and would you want to see it made? Utilizing Kickstarter, social media, and featuring an Oscar winning Visual FX crew, Tinker is hoping you say “Yes.”

About Tinker the Web Series

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 & 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.
