True DemonThree young adults - Anna, Lukas and Ben - are searching for their friend who has disappeared under supernatural circumstances.
Anna and Jess have been looking forward to going camping together. But their fun trip is cut short when Jess suddenly disappears under mysterious and seemingly supernatural circumstances. Now, Anna resolves to search for Jess and enlists her friends Lukas and Ben to join her. Equipped with cameras, they document and post their journey online for everyone to witness, as it leads them to find brutal creatures and a wide-ranging conspiracy. With each step down this sinister path, Anna discovers ever more of her own dark past… but that is only the start.
TRUE DEMON is a fictional web series presented as an authentic vlog channel, with the videos filmed, edited and uploaded to YouTube by Anna and her friend Ben. While playing with the conventions of the format, TRUE DEMON also makes use of all its possibilities within the narrative. Anna regularly does live streams, interacts with the community and tells them in her vlogs what's going on when the cameras aren't running – an action-packed mystery in the style of a real YouTube channel designed to excite, engage with and share.
