Series ‘Shield 5’, written and directed by Anthony Wilcox has launched its first two episodes exclusively on social media image-sharing platform Instagram.

The action-thriller will be told through a new way of narrating scripted stories: via 28 episodes running throughout February, Deadline website reported.

Each episode is only 15 seconds as it is the ultimate possible duration for a video clip to share on Instagram. Each episode will be accompanied by a photograph that also will be an intrinsic part of the story. The new form of content is being labeled as “social cinema.”

In ‘Shield 5’, security driver John Swift is arrested for his involvement in a diamond heist and subsequent death of a colleague. Determined to prove his innocence, he finds himself on the run from both the police and those he believes have framed him. Embroiled in a perilous game of cat and mouse, he tries to evade capture long enough to uncover the truth.

Non-traditional social and digital media platforms are becoming increasingly involved in content generation and distribution.

Facebook-owned Instagram has 400 million worldwide monthly active users and 200 million worldwide daily active users.
