[WE RECOMMEND] The Madness of Chartrulean

6m | Sep 26, 2023

Presenting an episode from The Madness of Chartrulean:


Battling aliens, cosmic forces, and his own sanity, a failed messiah asks: at what point does supreme power lead from salvation to ruin? 

The Madness of Chartrulean is a political science fantasy epic about the use—and misuse—of technology as a means to advance society. The story crawls into the troubled mind of a misunderstood messiah against the thematic backdrops of religion, war, politics, and ecology. Praised for its cinematic sound design and sprawling story, the series features a score by award-winning composer Sean Renner (Hulu's Das Boot) and a cast led by 2023 Ambies nominee Aud Andrews.

The Kickstarter for season 2 is underway, and we'd love your support!
