It used to be that episodic storytelling was strictly the domain of television shows. Not anymore with the arrival of YouTube and the internet machine. More and more action filmmakers are turning to YouTube as the avenue to put their passion projects out to the world, with the first episode of “Clandestine” being the latest to arrive online.
The supernatural web-series is here thanks to the tireless efforts of the group Epic Rival, itself an arm of Thousand Pounds Action Company. The official synopsis lays the world of “Clandestine” out for viewers:
