The Sentinel Chronicles :The Story of One of the Internets first Sci Fi Web Series

For writers and film makers the internet has allowed us an unprecedented opportunity to proliferate our work. It has allowed us to share our creativity to a level previously unheard of. Though it may not have made us all best sellers or box office tycoons it has given readers and viewers wherever the connection will take it a chance to share our creative vision.

My name is J.Welin and though I started my creative path as an artist I soon went on to writing and then into film making. 3 years ago I envisioned a dark comedy short that went on to become the basis for one of the internet's first (in the modern era- meaning since the advent of youtube) independently produced webseries and the first of its kind in my current hometown of Atlanta, GA. I set out to do what had not previously before been done -well at least not locally. It was never about fame or fortune- it was about the glory of doing something new.

In the three short years since I began this project I have worked with well over 100 actors, writers, film makers, artists and musicians. Many have gone on to other projects but many have stuck with me creating a community of sorts- a family. The vision has grown from the early days to one of the most unique and eclectic creations known to the planet to a very elaborate and costly adventure in storytelling. The work that we have done has been seen across the globe, on every continent and in over 50 countries. Though not about internet fame or any fame for that fact instead its always been about telling a story, doing what had not been done and about sharing the talent of the cast and crew with the world.

I proudly wish to share with you the existing pieces we have completed and to prepare you for the upcoming next season of The Sentinel Chronicles.

Below are links to our concept work that launched the project, our first and second season and a trailer/teaser for our upcoming season.

2019 is a short experimental film that is the source for this one of a kind pioneering project. The premise is simple how do you commit the perfect murder? employ a clone of the assassin to kill the assassin.

2019: The Assassin

The Sentinel Chronicles Season 1: The Beginning

Season 1 was by all means a very ambitious undertaking in every aspect and drew a lot of early interest in the project. At the time (Fall 2007) it was the first internet webseries in production in Atlanta not to mention one of the very first science fiction projects on youtube. I was overwhelmed to say the least, I had never done a project of this size nor had I done a live action sci-fi project either. Being the writer, producer, director, chief, cook and bottle washer on this project took its toll. The end result was a highly stylized extremely violent peak into my creative spirit. Though the story is difficult to follow at times its still in its own right a masterpiece of the will power and talent of everyone who worked on it. This season took over a year to produce and includes 3 episodes and over 40 minutes of content.

Season 1 Episode 1- "Meeting Your Maker"

The Sentinel Chronicles Season 2 (TSC 2.0)

When the cast and crew sat down to discuss the work we had done on the first season and the suggestion of second season surfaced all of the main cast renewed their commitment. I spent a couple of months working on a story and by a stroke of luck I connected with a very talented writer Tom C. Ricks or as he is known by his pen name - Tom Drake. Along the road through pre-production and scripting we picked up additional cast and crew that helped to improve the look and clarity of the project.

A brief synopsis of TSC 2.0: A closer look at a world where cloning and war have created dark future. Shot in a subjective/documentary style the audience is re-introduced to the main characters and the story line. The plot is guided by the Voice of Free World's journalist Hannah Dixon. She details the world in the first episode with a "history lesson" special report. The season continues with the origins of the Jonas and Cerino characters. Episode 4 is a sit down interview with one of the hero's of this dark future. Episode 5 is a quick finale that reveals a twist in the story and sets things up for subsequent projects.

Season 2.0 Episode 1 "A History Lesson"


TSC Architects of Fear- Season 2.5

Architects of Fear revealed incredible growth in every aspect of the project. The writing, editing, effects and production had finally begun to come of age. Originally meant as a 3 part mini series within the TSC project and as a short film concept to spread the growing phenomenon of this pioneering project. We set to work even before production on 2.0 was complete. Shoot in 7 days over 5 months it was our most costly and consuming project to date. It was completed and submitted to the 2010 film festival circuit. Considered by most as the best work to date we are now releasing it as it was intended along with a fourth episode entitled "Math". We will begin releasing these episodes on youtube on Halloween night (Oct. 31) and every two weeks after wards. Along with these episodes you will be able to get a peek at our upcoming project TSC 3 "Green Winter" as we will be releasing several teasers and trailers leading up to its premiere sometime in early 2011.

TSC 2.5
a breif synopsis : In the near future a special operations team is deployed on a one way mission to destroy the clone threat.
