The Witness - Interactive Film
The Witness - The first movie in the outernet
Merging reality and fiction in an interactive game!
As part of a relaunch for Germany’s Universal 13th Street (TV Channel), a revolutionary new film, The Witness, has been created in which you play an interactive, traveling roll. Using augmented reality on an iPhone, participants begin their adventure by witnessing a kidnapping by the Russian mafia. It’s then their job to track down the victim, finding clues, communicating with other participants and viewing other scenes on location around the city of Berlin. Much like the real life book series 'Choose Your Own Adventure', participants can both save the day or become the next victim themselves. Contestants can register at the site and on april 9 they can go into the city of Berlin to solve this crime!
