I'm posting from Toronto, Ontario where I'm working on episodes 3 and 4 of a dark science fiction comedy web series:
Here's the deal where I need some help. The series is set 10 years after a cataclysmic event has killed 75% of the world's population, and three friends struggle to get by working in the world's now most-successful company: A grief counseling agency.
Now, I've sort of established that the event (called 'Fallout') is cosmological in nature, but I've kept it ambiguous as to what exactly it was. Right now, I'm trying to get a few geeks involved who might have an idea of what kind of horrible cosmological event (Known or speculative) might have caused damage as depicted in the series.
The idea is that the destruction may have concentrated in some areas, but was definitely not limited to one impact, as all the world was affected around the same time. Tricky thing, I know, but if anyone wants to be creative - and be as out-there as you want, I'd love the help.
