Epic 2014 is the original flash online movie made by Robin Sloan for the Museum of Media History

Set in 2014 epic charts the history of the Internet, the evolving mediascape and the way news and newspapers were affected by the growth in online news. 

It coined the word "Googlezon" from a future merger of Google and Amazon to form the Google grid, and speaks of news wars with the Times becoming a print only paper for the elite culminating in EPIC Evolving Personalised Information Construct

As a flash animation, this film is extraordinary, not just for it's use of technology but for it's fantastic perception looking forward. 

Epic 2015 is an updated vision of the future set in 2015.
