Independent Holovid Studio to Release Tech Four Disaster Reel
The ‘Raskaan Veyden‘ was an Eifyr & Co. Science & Exploration frigate which was lost last November whilst exploring wormhole space. Of the eleven personnel aboard, only civilian reporter Mielikki Valpuri has been recovered, and then under mysterious and controversial circumstances which has since plunged Tech Four Media Group into legal and financial difficulties.
The forthcoming holoreel, being produced by the little known Freebooted Studios, has come under early criticism from humanitarian quarters for insensitive handling of the subject matter. An early preview showing of the title footage suggests a sensationalist approach to the subject matter, with actors and dramatic scores delivering a fictionalised account rather than a documentary approach as preferred by some parties.
The families of the crewmen were unavailable for comment, however an Eifyr & Co spokesman released the following statement, apparently on their behalf;
“Eifyr & Co have every faith in Freebooted Studios to produce a holovid which will treat the story of the brave crew of the Raskaan Veyden with respect and dignity. The families of the lost crewmen have given their blessing to this project.”
The preview footage suggests a dramatic feature, with the Raskaan Veyden story possibly being the first episode in a series of short holovids focusing on the Tech Four team.
