Almost doubling since last week, Portal has now enjoyed absolutely incredible viewership figures of over 200,000! We hope for these figures to keep on rising as our fantastic fans, cast and crew members continue to push and share this project that we are so proud of. We are keen to add to the collection of reviews that are making their way around the web, so if any of you are or know keen bloggers and movie reviewers, please feel free to get in touch via Twitter @DmPortal or our Facebook page, Portal on Dailymotion. Previous reviews have described Portal as “very creepy and otherworldly; it feels one part medical and one part pagan, with users hidden under a certain garb which may resonate with horror fans…” – Brutal As Hell, and “distinct, bizarre yet compelling… Portal looks set to update and explore the technology’s implications with a modern, experimental edge…“ – Sci-Fi London. If you still haven’t had the chance to watch it, you’d better get started with episodes one & two and find out what everyone’s raving about!
The story doesn’t end here – we want to make series 2 happen, and won’t be able to do that without your help! So keep following for updates, and check back at our website www.futureartists.co.uk to find out what happens next…!
There’s a brand new drug on the streets; one that requires you to enter a medical-induced coma before you can enjoy the full effects. With a good dose, you can escape the pressured drag of every day life, and step into a whole new reality of your choosing, remaining there for as long as you can afford it. The drug is known as Portal, and allows you to become anything you ever wanted to be; to live out your wildest fantasies at any point in time, in any space. Imagine having that portal to escape to.
But what if Portal, the most addictive virtual reality and social media space on earth, was banned. What if your portal to escape to was closed. How far would you go to get it back?
