AMD Dragon Age: Redemption Series begins today

Felicia Day is collaborating with AMD as a part of her web series “Dragon Age: Redemption.” which begins today:


Felicia Day, from the web series “Dragon Age: Redemption”

Four years ago I started my web series “The Guild” about a group of online gamers. Five seasons and over 125 million views later, we have been one of the most referenced examples of successful web series to date. I’ve had the opportunity to pursue other projects since “The Guild” took off, but it wasn’t until Bioware/EA and AMD encouraged me to create a web series set in the premiere video game fantasy world that I decided the opportunity was right. I’m so glad I did!

Last year I was approached by Bioware/EA to create a web series based in the world of their hit franchise “Dragon Age”. Dragon Age II was to be released, and the new graphics technology, powered by AMD promised a new experience for fans. As a HUGE fan of the game, I jumped at the opportunity. When I heard I heard that the proposal included taking the character I created for the web series, Tallis, and making her a companion in a piece of DLC content for Dragon Age II after release, I was overly excited.. The project is a first of its kind and, for me as a gamer, a dream come true.

It was a very ambitious proposition to produce a web series that creates a fantasy world from scratch and even more so to make the DLC component believable while translating a character from film to video game. Luckily, AMD entered the picture by supporting Bioware to add an enhanced graphics experience for the players of Dragon Age II and the DLC: Mark of the Assassin. Players are able to interact with my character in a full translation of my character from film screen to virtual screen.

AMD was also key in sponsoring the web series, which allowed us to create the scope and attract the talent for a first-class experience. These types of sponsorship models are rare, but exciting in a landscape of web video where all the rules are being broken. The opportunity to create new ways of telling stories and reach audiences in a new way is always an option, but it takes very forward-thinking sponsors to make projects actually happen.

As we usher in a new era of entertainment, there is so much room for innovation, but that requires out-of-the-box thinking from the people who produce and support these ventures. I appreciate the trust and support from EA/Bioware and AMD and hope that many others enjoy watching Tallis’ story and playing with her as a companion in the DLC!

I also enjoyed it. Was pretty entertaining throughout. I've seen Felicia Day interviewed on AOTS but never had seen her act, know she's famous from her online series "The Guild".

Looking forward to see more.

As a theater actor my self i found the acting on that video totally atrocious, i can comprehend low cost special effects and all but bad acting just put me off, the only thing on that video that i found good was the fight choreography, the characterization and the wardrobe.

Considering they're short videos that try to move along quickly, over-acting or over-the-top acting may be needed to encapsulate the story points. I thought it was well done over-all.
