On days like this, when the fate of the entire city could be determined by a single vote, it’s fun to imagine what Toronto’s future could look like if everything went wrong.
Enter Haphead, a miniseries that dares imagine that future.
The concept art seen above and below, which was created by local artists Matthew Borrett and Sanford Kong, envisions landmarks like the AGO ravaged by time and an unnamed calamity. Those that want to put a destroyed CN Tower up on their wall can do so with a calendar called Fallen Toronto that the group has created.
The calendar is a backer reward for those that pledge $30 toward Haphead’s Kickstarter campaign—donating that amount of money will also net one a 1080p download of the group’s six part miniseries.
As for what their series is all about, well, it’s about—and I’m not making this up—a future in which videogames are so immersive that angst ridden teenagers develop lethal skills just by playing them. Good stuff.
As of the writing of this post, backers have funded $10,480 of Haphead’s $30,000 goal. The campaign has another 17 days to go until its deadline. Therefore, those that really want a copy of the group’s calendar better back the project now. [via blogTO]
