Tribeca Film Festival to Screen Two Interactive Films Authored Using Interlude’s Treehouse Tool

/ Apr 24, 2014

Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival is screening two interactive films tomorrow, April 25, from the commercial and music-video directing duo Daniels.

Daniels is comprised of Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, who have been behind the lens for music videos for acts such as Passion Pit and Foster the People, and commercials for clients ranging from “Children’s Hospital” to Levi’s. Tomorrow they will be screening the romantic drama “Possibilia,” which they also co-wrote, and the documentary “The Gleam.”

In “Possibilia,” which stars Alex Karpovsky and Zoe Jarman, viewers will be able to follow and shape the story of two young lovers and how they break up. “The Gleam” is a documentary created by Scheinert and writer/director Billy Chew that explores the small, tight-knit community of Guntersville, Alabama.

Both films were created and developed using Treehouse, an interactive content authoring tool from video tech company Interlude. A self-service platform, Treehouse enables filmmakers to develop stories that allow audiences to choose which direction the content will go — a “choose your own adventure” for film, if you will.

“We wanted to explore how we could make films in which the viewer searches for the narrative instead of being fed it,” said the directing duo. “Interactivity is simply an opportunity to explore themes we find very compelling. We didn’t set out to create anything groundbreaking — we just want these films to be good stories like any other film.”

“Possibilia” and “The Gleam” were produced by Prettybird.
