After that sequence a frame freezes, completely stuck for couple of minutes. Annie thinks the dvd got scrambled from a scratch, but everything in the frame keeps moving. It's a night scene there are fire, flames are moving from torch. She gets closer, hears some voices, when she goes too much closer, she puts her hand into the tv & gets into tv screen imagine when neo (keeanu reeves) was captured from the Matrix to real world in the first part. She falls into the fence of troy arena. She sees a 4:3 ratio screen is being vanished in the middle of a sculpture as if it was made for it. Now what happens?

They manage to hide, Max says the sculpture is full of mystical power where she came from. Now starts Annie's journey, with help of max they discovers the remote. She makes leaps in the history of time to find the gateway to her world. Chapter after chapter she witness almost every major even of the history. The wars & independences of nations, in a fast forward motion, but she fails to find the door which goes back to her time. The wizard appears in many space of time with a different name, he becomes her companion in many avatars. After the era of independence of India, the remote battery gets damaged. The wizard made a power booster, but it misfires, skips lots of chapters of dvd.

It leads her to future in 25th century. When Machines control everything & an evil emperor rules the world. She finds the wizard once again. A futuristic intelligence force of the emperor detects the remote control. Annie gets arrested. She is unfamiliar with the future technology, so she can't do anything to escape. Emperor gets to know that the remote is a key to time travel & orders to make a gateway to extract its technology. The wizard rescues Annie, they steal the remote & escape.

Lot of adventure happens, after the entire journey, at climatic point when the movie will finish the dvd will be stopped. But Annie doesn't belong here, she will be stuck here too. In the nick of time the wizard makes a digital time shift menu attached with the remote which triggers to the exact time of movie where she accidentally came into this world.

She finally made the comeback to real world. Not a second passed in real time. But guess what, she is in love with the wizards after all the adventures journey together, but he is a part of the movie, he is unreal. After some day when she is about to return the dvd. On the way she stops into a local toy store & see a toy maker exhibiting amazing toys who exactly looks like the wizard. Yes wizard, in a way, in a sense of mythic & love.

TRACE

by Shannon Lowell Frady
(San Angelo, TX)

Trace Movie

Trace Movie

CROSS-MEDIA INTERACTIVITY. Event attendees participate in a real-time cross-media storyline incorporating the event, and connecting it with more events, real-world props (character business cards, etc), web and mobile media, all of which afford touch points (and new opportunities for product placement).



The live events and the online content will be produced in line while shooting the film version, which will incorporate the interactive live events. The events are where actors appear to be “part of the crowd” and the film crew appear as the “media” covering the event.

Until seeing character emails/sms messages following the event, and seeing the film, attendees will not know fully who the actors or characters are or what the story is. The entire storyline is finally released in a free online movie encapsulating the previous content and attendee/content subscriber experiences. Part of the appeal will be no one through production will necessarily know who is who. Only by socially interacting with people and picking up clues (websites, email addresses and phone numbers) both at the events and online can people discern who the characters are and what the story may be.

THE STORY
Set in modern Beijing, Trace is the story of an enigmatic young artist, ELAINE, who unwittingly, through her paintings, reveals the formula for a new energy source. It is a formula so valuable and closely guarded that it leads to her abduction – setting in motion a chain of events that involve the cast of characters that are associated with a secret and sinister elite in the world of illicit trade. The audience is invited to be a part of the real time action that revolves around these central characters, locations and events. Or access the websites used in the film to then interact with the story, on their PCs or cell phones.

PRODUCTION ESTIMATE 2008 @ 40 Day shoot, incl. 3 days pickup (USD)

Project Vision Quest

by Andray D. Lee
(Springfield, MA USA)

Vision Quest is a one hour thirty minute movie four girls from remote locations on earth, and a Shamanic priest from Africa. The two groups come together in Salem, Massachusetts and recollect repressed memories of the beginning of evil on the virgin planet earth. Vision Quest cuts across linear time frame explaining how the male and female gender were created equal for the purpose of emitting love vibrational frequencies to calm chaotic energy in the universe.

Vision Quest explains how the blood and sexuality of women (Yin) was experimentally tampered with by advance extraterrestrials. This tampering attracts "Luciferan energy" from the 9th dimensional galactic black hole to earth. For these reasons women became extremely abusive to the male vibration (yang) for egotistical powers, etc. Over time, women experienced a karmic backlash from the male vibration trying desperately to regain powers they subconsciously know belongs to them.

In the end, four super psychic teenage girls of different races and cultures come together and form a unified consciousness to bring back gender equality. The bringing back of gender equality releases "Luciferan energy" from earth back to the 9th dimension galactic black hole. This is achieved through rituals of menstrual blood, awakening the heart thus awakening "Giaia" and reopening multiple dimensional portals to varieties of extraterrestrials that have been waiting for years in anticipation.

The Festival of Light

by Shundell Prasad
(New York City)

1979, Guyana, South America. The small country is under the rule of a dictator. Opportunities are rare, life is stifled, and food is short.
The Diwali Parade, marking the Hindu Festival of Light, is underway in the tiny villages of Guyana. The firecrackers are lit; the glorious motorcades are a spectacle for the eye.

Four-year-old Reshma, sings and claps her little hands, safely secured in her father, Vishnu’s, arms; completely sheltered from the social, political and economic turmoil surrounding her.
The memory of Diwali in her father’s arms is the last image of happiness for Reshma, as she and her mother, Meena, emigrate to Queens, NY, without her father, who is not allowed it accompany them due to immigration complications.

The thumping beats of Hip Hop of Queens in 1990 reveal the modern day Reshma, transformed and completely urbanized, without a trace of her youthful innocence.

Entrenched in the fast life of boys and rebellion against Meena, who has remarried a wealthy, older man, James, Reshma falls prey to her boyfriend, Justin, who rapes her on an overnight school trip. To add to Reshma’s misery, Meena, in her own frustration, beats Reshma, mercilessly, for her unruly and disrespectful actions, this culminated when Reshma got suspended from school for forging Meena’s signature for the school trip. Bruised and shattered by the torture life has inflicted on her, Reshma seeks shelter in the home of Asha’s family. The family has just migrated to Queens from Guyana, illegally.

Their gentle and nurturing ways brings peace and happiness to Reshma once again. What ensues is a beautiful love story between Reshma and Ravin, Asha’s brother.

Havoc again creeps into Reshma’s life when Meena reveals the truth about Vishnu – he’s involved with the illegal immigration black market and was thrown in jail while bringing Ravin and his family to America. Furious at Meena for trying to ruin her life, Reshma confronts Ravin, and asks him, “Tell me it’s not true, She’s Meena lying, right.” Unable to deny the fact, Ravin is defeated. Reshma is shattered, and is at her breaking point.

The culmination of disastrous events: the rape, the beating and now the news of Ravin’s family’s involvement in her father’s demise and their betrayal lands her in the hospital in a panic attack.

In her unconscious state, her tiny body lays motionless on the stark white hospital bed while the images of her father at the Diwali parade from her childhood surface. He Vishnu asks her, “Reshma bachcha (my child) where have you been?” She replies, “I’m here. Why did you leave me?” Returning to consciousness, Reshma comes to a realization and is now determined to find and free her father, however difficult it will be.

Guyana 1991. Georgetown is buzzing under the Hoyte regime; in a sea of African faces, emerges an Indian girl, Reshma. Armed with a single photo of her father from 13 years prior and sheer determination, she begins her journey into the Guyanese prison system.

In no time the realities of a male dominated system threaten to derail her mission. On a return journey to revisit her childhood village, a surprise visit by Ravin, reassures her of his compassion. With Ravin by her side, Reshma begins her voyage into the interior Amazon Rainforest, to Mazaruni Prison, the reported location of her father in the middle of the lush, swampy rainforest sits the tall imposing prison building. Tired and exhausted from her journey, Reshma is heartbroken when the Warden informs her that her father is in isolation, making it impossible for her to reunite with him.

Defeated, she returns to Georgetown, leaving the rainforest and her father behind. Unbeknownst to her, word has already gotten to Vishnu of his daughter’s presence in Guyana. As Reshma, reluctantly readies her belongings to return to America, Vishnu is desperately and feverishly attempting a prison breakout. After an entire night of slogging in and scaling the anaconda-ridden jungle, Vishnu manages to get to the airport, just in time to see Reshma’s plane depart. He’s lost her once again.

Deeply saddened by her failure to reunite with her father, Reshma gives her life and hand in marriage to Ravin, the man who has loved her and supported her throughout her voyage. In the middle of the marriage rituals, fate has spun a different story. In-between the Sanskrit verses, from a distant, Reshma feels a cool breeze. She interrupts her marriage proceedings and walks to the source of it. She becomes motionless when faced with the image of her father, 14 years later.

But, her euphoria and dreams come to a halt at the sight of the police and an FBI officer behind her father. Before she can react, they drag Vishnu, an illegal immigrant and prison escapee, away from her grasp. She runs; the payal (musical feet ornaments) and heavy wedding sari jingles as she sprints after the police car that’s carried her father away.

With rage fueling her, she returns to her shattered wedding and has a final confrontation with her stepfather, James, who admits to calling the FBI on Vishnu, thus safeguarding his relationship with Meena. In a moment of revelation, Meena turns her back on James and brings Reshma and Ravin, hand in hand, to the wedding Mandup (alter) to complete their rituals.

In the end, Reshma and Ravin return to Guyana and by 1993, democracy has been restored to the tiny nation country, and Vishnu, now a free man, welcomes his daughter and new son-in-law into his life, thus restoring the balance of life once again.
