‘Blue Mountain’ is a six part science fiction drama web series set in the Blue Mountains. Humankind is on the verge of extinction with seventy percent of the population operating as subhuman clones. Celestial beings from another realm must come to planet Earth to prevent an armageddon. What if you woke up one day and discovered that you were one of them?
Kushla is a 26 year old woman with supernatural abilities that allows her to exist in multiple dimensions simultaneously and download information from all time and space. Life quickly becomes very real for her as she begins to experience events before they have happened.
Can Kushla get a grasp of her superhuman abilities to prevent her loved ones getting hurt and ultimately stop the demise of humanity, or are some things just meant to be?
The story Blue Mountain arose from ponderous questions such as: what will happen to the world if we keep treating it the way we do? In the world we live in today, technology such as smart phones are allowing people to forget the natural world and divorce themselves from the present moment. I wonder, what is the next step in technological advancement, and what does that mean for human interactions and the potentialities of human existence ?
Blue Mountain is set in the mysterious and world famous Blue Mountains National Park in NSW Australia. The mountains appear to be a hazy blue colour as the name suggests, but there is no scientific evidence as to why they appear this way - only speculation. As a writer and current Blue Mountains resident this has greatly inspired me, and from there the story has sprung.
