Pioneer One is an original series debuting exclusively online through VODO, in partnership with valued members of our unique DISCO (Distribution Coalition). The sixth episode has just been released and it’s being currently featured on FrostWire and other distribution partners.
Show creators Josh Bernard and Bracey Smith are following their success with The Lionshare to bring a high quality product to audiences without traditional television — a “TV series without the TV.”
The series has been met with quite the enthusiasm and praise – it’s been downloaded over 3 million times now and won Best Drama Pilot at the 2010 New York Television Festival. Its also fully independently produced and crowd funded. The team collected $32k in donations, a little over a half of it’s overall budget!
This is also the first VODO release with a commercial sponsor supporting the show: viewers can try their hand as filmmakers, win prizes AND help make sure future episodes of Pioneer One will be made.
In the The Series
A mysterious spaceship has entered Earth’s atmosphere. A US Department of Homeland Security investigation has uncovered a live human being in a Soviet space suit in an unstable condition. A note in Russian, found at the crash site, claims the man is the child of cosmonauts living at a base on Mars.
In the Sixth Episode
Taylor prepares to go to the public with Yuri’s story, and everyone discovers the consequences of their actions in the conclusion to Pioneer One’s first season.
What is VODO?
‘VODO could be a valuable tool for indie filmmakers who recognize that obscurity is a much bigger threat to their efforts than piracy.’ – Mike Masnick, Techdirt.
