Containment Field Studio & Steampunk Partners Scheduled to Begin Shooting \'Tinker - The Web Series\'

After a successful 2 month Kickstarter crowd funding campaign to assist with the financing of the pilot episode of the new sci-fi series TINKER, under development from Steampunk Partners LLC in association with Harbinger Media Group LLC, and Containment Field LLC. Production is scheduled to begin March 1st.

It was a long campaign involving a team effort of the cast, crew, friends, and allies. At the end we emerged victorious. The Kickstarter funds will help us wrap up pre-production, and begin filming, says Micheal Taglianetti the creator of Tinker.

Spanning a career of 30+ years Russell Denove was announced towards the end of the campaign as the new Supervising Editor/Post Production Supervisor.

Russell Denove is a Hollywood based film editor with over 30 years of experience in post production, he most recently edited the holiday feature, Elf-Man. His television credits include "Southland," "Person of Interest," "The West Wing," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," and "Parker Lewis Can't Lose." He has also edited feature films, including McHale's Navy and For Richer or Poorer. He was a Co-Producer/Editor on the television series "Nash Bridges" and "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." As well as a Post-Production Supervisor for "The Outer Limits".

About Tinker the Web Series

Set in an alternate history time line that picks up in the late nineteenth century, the world of the Tinkers is one of smog, acid rain, fog, steam, over-population, bland food, booming economic growth, scientific achievement and unbridled capitalism. The story follows the lives of the Tinkers, a father/daughter engineering duo, who have achieved a level of notoriety as inventors in their native San Francisco of the Northwest American territory. When a wealthy and eccentric expatriate, now residing in British controlled Hong Kong, named Lady Cushing engages their services to build a device from the incomplete plans left behind by her late father, also an inventor and gentleman explorer. From the moment the Tinkers accept Lady Cushing's offer, they are thrust headlong into a world of intrigue, lies, deceit, greed and eminent danger in which the balance of worldly power rests unaware, alternately in both the calloused hands of Sho Tinker and the gloved hands of Lady Cushing.
