‘Aidan 5?: Clone Detectives in a Dystopian Ohio


With the influx of new web series what seems like every other day, the way to make your series stand out is finding a unique way to convey your story. Aidan 5 from Room 101 Productions has done just that.

This is just one of several unique aspects of this sci-fi noir series, adapted from the winning short film of the 48 Hour Film Project Contest.
