See the trailer here, and let me know what you think.
The car chase scenes reminds me of Fast and Furious movie. But this one got an interesting, timely theme.
Director Thomas shares that even though his movie tackles the extreme side of social media, “I didn’t feel that that social media was to blame but that together with people it can be evil and pervasive. But then I think that's how some people view social media, I find it particularly annoying when 'friends' of mine post every minute detail of their life – I definitely don't think I'll be tuning into livecasting channels in the near future, well, not unless they are doing something exciting.”
Timely as today’s social landscape, “Channeling” had been awarded Best Feature Film (Sci_Fi) at The London International Festival of Science Fiction & Fantastic Film, Best Feature Film at the Phoenix Film Festival and is the Official Selection at the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival and Dances With Films.
“Channeling” opens very soon this July 2 from CrsytalSky Multimedia in theatres nationwide.
