Someone Else (USA | 2016, 13 min)
Directed by: Peter Cannon
“Someone Else” is a VR experience that places the viewer as the protagonist of a science fiction thriller. You find yourself - a test subject bound to a wheelchair and unable to move - held captive in an island private research laboratory. A guilty lab employee enlists your sister in helping you escape, but the reclusive owner of the island facility is onto their theft of his property. What’s worse is that you seem to be increasingly ill now that you’re ‘unplugged’ from the laboratory’s machinery. As you’re wheeled to the dock, and your illness worsens, the trust between the two dissolves as your sister begins to doubt this poorly thought out plan, as well as her new companion’s ability to keep you safe.
