Rotor DR1 – a community collaborated Sci-Fi episodic series

My good friend Chad Kapper, the creator of FliteTest, has been working hard on a new project; A community collaborated Sci-Fi episodic series called Rotor DR1, that takes place in a post apocalyptic world full of drones.


“The story takes place in the not-too-distant future after some cataclysmic event has occurred. There is no government, half the world’s people are dead or missing and the sky is full of autonomous drones. Rotor DR1 follows a 16-year-old boy trying to survive in this world, who sets out to find his father, joined by his drone companion.”

They have already managed to create a concept trailer:

What makes this project unique is that the story is shaped by the community! People give their ideas on small things to large plot points and the guys take that feedback and creates the episodes.

“The idea behind community collaboration is that the audience has just as much input and influence over the content as do the people producing it. Rather than us making all the decisions and developing the story internally, community collaboration lets us bring your ideas and suggestions into the content as we create it.”

The collaboration started as a forum post and has now grown into their own website.

“Rotor DR1 will be released in segments, starting with the concept trailer. We will evaluate audience feedback from the the trailer, then create the first episode influenced by that feedback. Our plan is to have 8-10 minute episodes, with every episode revised and shaped according to the input from our audience.”

Now the guys want your input on the upcoming episodes!

So make sure you head over to and make a comment (tell the guys I say Hi)

ps. here is a behind the scenes video
