On episode 12 of the Web.Files, host Kristyn Burtt interviews Sean Hinchey, the creator and writer of the Dirty Bomb Diaries, as well as the series director and editor, Eric Tozzi. The pair discuss the creation of the series including being inspired by lonelygirl15 along with some interesting behind the scenes tidbits. Also, Kristyn Burtt was able to get the scoop that they are in pre-production on season two of DBD, a season which Hinchey and Tozzi say will be on a much larger scale with more characters and locations. Also, the location for the interview is very clever and Kristyn wears a hardhat… what? she looks good in hats.
Described as lonelygirl meets an A-bomb, Dirty Bomb Diaries is the a high concept drama made on a shoestring budget; the series reportedly cost only $600 to produce. The series centers on Misty, an attractive young girl who recently moved into a new apartment in the city, shortly before a dirty bomb explodes, crippling the city and leaving the survivors scampering to claim the dwindling resources. Misty continues to video blog, even when she is uncertain the videos are getting out, at first to record what happened, but as the situation grows more desperate, it becomes the means of maintaining her sanity.
