There is a Dutch movie in the works titled “APP”.
It’s a thriller and it will integrate with viewer’s handheld devices so that the movie will “synchronize a parallel storyline via app content to be accessed while in the movie theater.”
Sounds interesting. I hope it works to enhance the experience. I’m dubious for now, but at some point a film maker will get it right and there will be a fully integrated experience for movie viewers.
I’m not sure anyone has figured out exactly how to make it work in the theater. I’m picturing tablets connected to the seats so that people don’t actually have their own connected devices on during the film. We all know that would be too much temptation for people.
Interactivity like SmartGlass is going to be the norm eventually.
Hopped over to the link for the teaser trailer provided by Producer Bobby Boerman’s tweet. I won’t bother to rant about the absurdity of my inability to watch. I’ll just use that 21 seconds to pick my nose or something else really productive.
