Film Editor Grace sees fragments of a disturbing message in her latest film. You will help uncover it. Interactive horror set in 80s London
Grace is a film editor in the dark heart of 80s London. She’s tightly wound, but loves her job. Low budget exploitation films, horror flicks - it doesn’t matter. But something is wrong.
On horribly scratched frames, terrible scenes repeat. As her personal life collapses, Grace becomes convinced she’s being sent a message.
EDIT’s got a unique interactive component. At the end of every episode, Grace receives more disturbing footage. In between instalments, you’ll be tasked with putting the pieces together using a simple drag and drop interface. With each episode, the message -and its horrifying consequences- will become clearer.
Directors- Chris and Dan Cornwell
Writer- Chris Cornwell
Starring- Genna Foden, Callum Dodgson, Pia De Laborde, Helen Oxley
About the Production:
"I’ve worked in transmedia for a while and I was thinking about how you could use interactivity to involve people not just narratively, but thematically.
"To be clear, first and foremost I want EDIT to be a tight, scary set of horror shorts. But I also want to explore the idea of editing. So much changes in the edit, because context can really define truth- both in the editing booth and outside it.
"The message in this disturbing sequence will shift as Grace cuts and re-cuts and I hope it gives audience a chance to grapple with this idea directly." -- Chris Cornwell
