Weekend Viewing: The Pilot For John August's Apocalyptic Web Series, The Remnants

This was shot way back when during the last writer's strike and has been online in some form or another since late 2009 but I was on John August's YouTube channel for other reasons today and saw that he recently parked it there too – andthat  only 200 people had, so far, seen that version.

It's really rather good so I wanted to share it here, send us into the weekend with something fun to watch. And because it explains itself so well, I don't want to spoil a thing. Find yourself 12 minutes or so and put your feet up.


August hasn't directed another feature since his debut, The Nines, but he's certainly kept busy as a screenwriter and, most recently, a librettist, bringing Big Fish to the stage.
