David Bowie will be the focus of the upcoming Instagram miniseries, known as Unbound, beginning on the 25th.
The feature focusing on David Bowie’s album, Blackstar, will run 16 episodes. Each new release comes out on Mondays, Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays.
David Bowie agreed to do the miniseries before his death last month, which gave the miniseries a whole new depth and meaning in the eyes of the creators and his fans.
Creators of the miniseries, Carolynn Cecilia and Nikki Borges, began working with David Bowie on the miniseries last fall.
"UNBOUND: A InstaMiniSeries” In the Fall of 2015, David Bowie gave us unique pre-release access to the music from (pronounced ‘Blackstar’), his 28th studio album, allowing us to create our own visual interpretations of his songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part. Completed in December 2015, UNBOUND: AInstaMiniSeries takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork. Each episode of the series is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention. We are honored to have had this opportunity and hope you'll join our 16 episode series, premiering February 25th. New episode every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Nikki Borges said of David Bowie, “David Bowie has always been about reinvention over repetition. Remarkably honest and passionate in his work, his innovations have influenced our own work as we transform a social media platform into a creative outlet. We are grateful to have the opportunity to participate with the chameleonic rock icon and honored to be entrusted with interpreting his art.”

Carolynn Cecilia added, “David Bowie was a trailblazer, not just in the world of music, but in the art of storytelling. Whether through lyrics, melodies, film, theater or mythical persona he never fails to transcend WHAT WAS and set the tone-and the bar-for what CAN BE. As story-tellers and music lovers, who better for us to be inspired by than David Bowie?”
THANK YOU The family of David Bowie is currently making arrangements for a private ceremony celebrating the memory of their beloved husband, father and friend. They ask once again that their privacy be respected at this most sensitive of times. We are overwhelmed by and grateful for the love and support shown throughout the world. However, it is important to note that while the concerts and tributes planned for the coming weeks are all welcome, none are official memorials organized or endorsed by the family. Just as each and every one of us found something unique in David's music, we welcome everyone’s celebration of his life as they see fit.
Are you as excited as I am for this Instagram miniseries featuring David Bowie and his latest, and last, album?
