Howdy gang! I was sent this the other day and finally got around to giving it a look and thought that the ATS community would appreciate the info...



Toronto, ON / New York, NY [February 14, 2012] – iThentic and 3 o’clock TV today announced the launch of the first-ever interactive thriller, which delves into the mysterious Guidestones monument in Elbert County, Georgia. Do the Guidestones hold the key to humanity’s future? This is the question viewers will answer when the interactive web series, Guidestones, launches at guidestones.org...

The 50-episode (total running time 120 minutes) Guidestones was created and directed by Jay Ferguson and produced with iThentic. The series takes viewers deep inside the mystery of The Georgia Guidestones, an enigmatic monument nestled in a farmer’s field in rural Georgia, and inscribed with directions for rebuilding civilization after the apocalypse.

By following clues hidden in each episode, viewers can solve the mystery of The Guidestones, along with the main characters, in a race against time that crosses two continents and three countries.

Shot vérité style in Canada, the US and India, Guidestones combines scripted drama and documentary-style narrative. Sandy Rai (Supinder Wraich), an exchange student from India studying journalism in Canada, stumbles upon an unsolved murder while working on assignment with fellow student Trevor Shale (Dan Fox). She learns that the murdered man, a scientist named Harold Glenndenning (David Fox), may have a connection to the builders of The Georgia Guidestones. Following clues hidden within The Guidestones she discovers that Harold’s death was no random act, and is instead part of a cover-up hiding a global conspiracy of apocalyptic proportions.

Using his skills as both a dramatic and documentary filmmaker, director/writer Jay Ferguson has created a high-speed international chase full of fictitious events blended seamlessly with reality-based facts.

The gripping narrative includes both fictitious and real characters and events, as well as real and “seeded” web and multimedia content. Viewers can search online to discover hidden video, audio files, apps and other media -- some of which are real, and some not.

Guidestones is presented in two versions: a 50-episode “push” version, which launches Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at guidestones.org... and a 34-episode “linear” version, which will debut later in the spring. The “push” version allows viewers to sign-up for an e-mail notification, which delivers episodes in “real time” as the story unfolds. Viewers get to solve the mystery along with the main characters, thereby deepening the narrative experience.

How to experience Guidestones:

Step #1 -- Sign-up at guidestones.org.... Starting February 14, 2012, you’ll receive an e-mail message that leads you to the first video episode of the series. Watch the video to find the clue hidden within. Follow the clue and find out where it leads by searching for or discovering links to other websites and media.

Step #2 -- Watch your in-box. The “push” e-mail system delivers the next episodes in “real time” as the narrative unfolds. Your e-mail notification could arrive at any time, day or night, as our two main characters travel from Toronto, Canada to Elbert County, Georgia and then to India.

Step #3 -- Like, share and +1 the episode you have just watched. Visit the Guidestones YouTube channel for behind-the-scenes content and interviews with the actors and director; or follow director Jay Ferguson and the Guidestones team on Twitter @guidestonestv. Share what you’ve discovered with your friends. Just remember that the experience starts for each person only after they have signed-up for the “push” notification so don’t give too much away!

what is this nonsense?
Someones using the guidestones as a base for their tv projects? Trying to deceive people that they will reveal some mystery at the end.

This is blatant marketing, Data mining. Whatever. Looks like garbage, that trailer sucked too.

This is interesting OP. You took lots of time to put this together it seems.

I find it a shame that others on ATS nowadays only bash others work. Trolling much?

It would seem so! LOL! Some people on here are asinine Jack Donkeys.


S&F for effort.

I love a good game, and I have been to the Guidestones on a few occasions. I hope this shapes up to be as interesting as it sounds! Thanks for the link.

Actually this to me seems much like an evolution of watching TV and reading books. It really comes off as an interactive who done it type of thing to me.

I dont know, it seems pretty interesting. I signed up to see how it works after watching the first episode which was really very interesting.
