Former cast members of Stargate Atlantis have reunited for a new 3D Web comic series, State of Syn. The show premiered in November, and the first two episodes are available now.
Jewel Staite (SGA‘s “Jennifer Keller”) stars as Annika Drake, a “synesthetic” born with the innate ability to see patterns and hack technology. In this futuristic world Annika and her friends are pulled into a mystery surrounding her father’s tech company, Psylo5ense, which is taken over by her father’s former business partner.
The opening narration is also provided by Torri Higginson (“Elizabeth Weir”).
The unique look of the Web comic combines traditional illustration and Flash animation with live-action photography, while the actors also provide voice-over work for their characters. Once complete, the series will be comprised of ten 5-minute webisodes.
State of Syn was created by Daniel Dales and Jarrett Sherman, and directed by Jed Weintrob.
