Raptured is a fantastic, six-part, online drama that started airing on YouTube, Blip.TV, Vimeo and beyond from 21 October 2011. Writer and Director Heather Taylor joins Off The Wall Post to explain the series that upgrades the humans that got left behind when The Rapture happened. Heather describes the funding models (such as crowd-funding through Indie Gogo); distribution deals through Koldcast; issues around product placement and misplacement; Vimeo frustrations and the second series already in the works.
