Peer Production: OSIRIS Lives!


Above – OSIRIS: Episode One

And not only is it alive and well it’s pretty damn good looking too.

In Egyptian mythology (should we be saying “religion” instead? Don’t want to rub anything godlike the wrong way), Osiris is the god of the dead, as green-skinned as the Hulk and ruler over everybody who’d lived and moved on. A very cool gig.

In this amazingly well-produced web series, Osiris is the key witness in a criminal trial. Key because all the other witnesses have been killed. And he gets killed as well…except that when that happens he’s resurrected 37 minutes later.

And it happens. More than once.

The first seven episodes of this series have been a bit ham-handed in the FBI investigator-cliches department, but the direction and editing are so smooth that we’re hooked. Take a look and tell us what you think.

If you’re curious, the best place to start is here.
