I would call it a modern day, digital far-cousin of "Poltergeist"
(PRWEB) October 31, 2012
The casting process occurred through an acting contest opened to the general public. The scenario for the short film was posted on the movie site along with instructions from the director.
The contestants delivered their performance on You Tube using their iPhones and camera phones. On October 31st at midnight, the short film titled "iBetween" was unveiled on the official site.
"iBetween" is the story of a mother whose four year old daughter mysteriously disappeared three weeks prior. One day, the mother receives video messages on her phone from complete strangers. Each individual leaving just a few words, speaking as if they were the little girl themselves.
By piecing all of the messages together, she gathers the following overall message from these strangers: “Mommy, I am trapped i-between, please help me I'm scared.” As a last resort, the mother posts a video message on ‘You Tube’ asking help from anyone who might be able to help her. She eventually gets a video response from a doctor offering his help. He claims that her little girl is in between dimensions. Between our world and death.
"I would call it a modern day, digital far-cousin of "Poltergeist". Since it's a short film (under 4 minutes) it is setting up the story-line for a feature film to come, where people could continue to be part of the film and actually land a role from their home, by simply using their iPhone, if they have the skills that is. We had quite a bit of talent for this contest from all over the world. The bulk of the entries came from the U.S. but we also has several people submitting from Australia, U.K., South Africa and even India. Says Dom Adams the director/producer of the film. "I see it a little bit like the "American Idol" of acting, where unknown actors can show their acting talent and the public get to vote for their favorite performer, allowing them to actually see the very people they voted for in the final film." Concludes Adams.
