Everything’s OK is a live-action/animated hybrid, a DIY VFX extravaganza, telling the story of a young woman’s search for her father amid the ruins of NYC ten years after fracking has caused the apocalypse.
The 1% still rule, and everyone else walks around in an alternate, happy reality, thanks to “Gogol Glass.” This disillusioned young woman, however, is on a mission, with the help of a sidekick—the reanimated head of Orson Welles.
Everything’s OK premiered and it is a rave of indestructible imagination and creativity. The episodic television series is best described as a “post-apocalyptic cardboard punk” adventure. Ace Salisbury created, directed and wrote the story. Joel Clark serves as the co-writer.
In a post-apocalyptic world, some unfortunate humans become robots. Talking rats have a secret lair. A shady corporation is selling fertilized urine as drinking water.
Everything about Everything’s OK is great. I love the storyline and plot, especially since it revolves around a post-apocalyptic world. This happens to be one of my favorite topics.
The practical and special effects are good. I like the type of animation that used in this series. The only time I think I’ve seen this kind of animation is on Robot Chicken. So, this is a fresh type of animation and filming technique to me.
Everything’s OK has an amazing cast. Each actor does an outstanding job in their roles. Also, Rob Crow creates an amazing musical score for the series.
The world of Everything’s OK is a future Manhattan. The city features gaping canyons instead of rivers, with no access to drinkable water. Salisbury imagined how this would have taken effect in mankind’s quality of life.
Salisbury mentions an excellent point; a lot of times, instances like this is the cause of a zombie or an alien apocalypse. In this unique case, humans are the monsters. When I sit back and think about this – and the evolution of cinema – this is a valid case.
Recalling the post-apocalyptic films and television shows I’ve seen, the monsters are an unknown. These creatures are an abnormal species.
Everything’s OK releases this year.
