This is interesting – a feature length film is being showed on Youtube. According to TechCrunch, it’s believed to be the first time that the Google-owned site is doing this.
I haven’t got the time to sit down and catch it yet. The whole film runs for 71:54 minutes and the Youtubelink claims that the film will only be shown for “one week only”.
Here’s a short synopsis from the director:
“It’s about our lives. Being alone in a city, wanting to be in a relationship but feeling there are no good ways to start a connection and then breaking out of a rut, jumping feet first into something deeper and crazier than either of us expected.”
Here’re some short nuggets of information on the film, taken from the official site:
