Original OSNews Interviews Times change. When the movies came about people said that it was a trend that will die soon. When the TV came out, even more people said that it won't catch on. And here we are again, at the dawn of IPTV, finding the first professionally-made, web-only, live action series: Sanctuary. Co-created by one of Sci-Fi Channel's Stargate SG-1 producers, Stage3Media's Damian Kindler was very kind to answer some of our questions about the promising project, which recently even hit a Guinness record as the most expensive web-only production ever ($4.5 million CDN). You can view behind-the-scenes and previews here and the first full 17-minute webisode here (includes a cameo of Stargate: Atlantis' own David Hewlett), while you can support the project by buying the HD DRM-free version of the webisodes at the official site.

This is all a bit sketchy

I went to the official website to watch an official version of the episode, but nothing was there but a 5 month old trailer... (and a website that reminds me of Myst 1)

Update: it looks like rather than host a free low quality version on their website, they make people hunt for them on other video sites. The wikipedia entry says the first four episodes will be on Youtube. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctuary_%28web_series%29 )

I directly link to the first webisode on Youtube, so I don't understand why you had this adventure -- although I agree with you that it's not easy to find these links from the official site.

Usually when a TV show is on Youtube it is 24 hours away from the lawyers taking it down. So having a sketchy video on Youtube and no recognition of this on the official website is why I went on the adventure to find out WTF was going on.
