Internet Explorer announces the release of the fourth and final episode of The Random Adventures of Brandon Generator which can now be seen as a whole production for the first time. With hundreds of thousands of views and over 8,000 submissions of prose, scenes, storylines and characters, the interactive animated story concludes with a gripping finale that features over 90 user contributions and sees Brandon fighting to save himself from deletion.

Edgar Wright’s mind-bending experiment with storytelling culminated with a screening of the entire production for the first time in a Victorian warehouse in London last night.  Brandon’s fictional home was simulated through animations and projections, while contributors to the series saw their artwork hang alongside artwork by renowned Marvel and Lucasfilm illustrator Tommy Lee Edwards, who played a pivotal part animating the adventure.

The power of IE9’s hardware-accelerated graphics give a smooth and engaging experience handling some of the most sophisticated HTML5 techniques yet with Tommy Lee Edwards’ distinctive style of artwork immersing the viewer deeper into Brandon’s world. Narrated by Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) with music by David Holmes’ new project ‘Unloved’ (a collaboration between David Holmes, Keefus Green and Jade Vincent), the finale sees Brandon answer his own existential questions, in his own quizzical manner, and come face to face with his nemesis Anti Brandon once more.

“The final episode has been the most fun to work on as Brandon’s head trip comes to a coffee soaked climax,” says Edgar Wright. “Having co-writers develop the story in real-time and weaving in user submissions from so many people has been a highly enjoyable challenge and a great new experience for me.  I’m excited for people to see Brandon Generator as a whole story and I’m incredibly proud of the project.”

Tommy Lee Edwards added, “I don’t think any of us were ready for the intensity of this project. The crowd sourced nature of it meant curve balls were a day-to-day occurrence but the animation had to be perfect for this to work. There were sleepless nights and stressful days but the end result is really special and I’m pleased to be part of this new genre of storytelling on the web.”

Gabby Hegerty, Internet Explorer lead commented, “From day one we wanted to create something truly original, incredibly beautiful, immersive and interactive. Brandon Generator was a first of its kind, developed in HTML5 to really show what’s possible on the web today with IE9. Experimenting with different styles, concepts and techniques took us to new territory and the crowd sourcing elements helped create an entirely new genre of storytelling. We were incredibly excited about having such a talented cast behind the production as they really brought the concept to life but we never dreamt the reception and interaction from the public would be so strong. We’re ecstatic about what the project has become, a standalone genre that inspires imagination, intrigue, and fun, within its audience, all wrapped up in a beautiful and immersive web package.”
