Unlinear.tv announces Untitled Murder Project 2.0, a 49-episode interactive murder mystery available online starting 10/10/2013 from The Story of Luke writer/director Alonso Mayo and producer Nina Leidersdorff.
Untitled Murder Project 2.0 begins with a friendly brunch between three couples and takes a dark turn when an uninvited guest who holds damning secrets interrupts the festivities — and is soon found murdered.
Unlike traditional films, TV shows or webseries, the viewers of Untitled Murder Project 2.0 can choose their preferred order for watching the episodes, which are organized into 5 chapters and divided into 3 parallel timelines (Right Now, Hours Ago and Weeks Ago). By using a menu that appears at the end of each episode, viewers can choose their own path towards finding out who the killer is, and watch as much or as little backstory as they wish.
Untitled Murder Project 2.0 is the follow-up to 2011’s Untitled Fiction Project, an hour-long experiment in unscripted fiction filmmaking about the aftermath of an affair. Like its predecessor, Untitled Murder Project 2.0 was shot using structured improvisation, with dialogue developed by the actors and the director on the day of the shoot based solely on an outline. All of the actors where cast out of the GGC Conservatory, an improv-intensive acting school run by Gloria Gifford. The 13 original episodes of Untitled Fiction Project comprise Chapter 1 of Untitled Murder Project 2.0.
The project was directed by Alonso Mayo, director/writer of this year’s feature film The Story of Luke, starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Seth Green, Cary Elwes and Kristin Bauer, winner of 20 festival top prizes including Best Film from the San Diego Film Festival, Irvine Film Festival and San Luis Obispo Film Festival. Alonso Mayo, originally from Lima, Peru, won the Student Academy Award with his American Film Institute thesis film Wednesday Afternoon. He teaches Filmmaking at New York Film Academy, Los Angeles campus.
Untitled Murder Project 2.0 will be released through the Unlinear.tv YouTube channel in 4 parts: Chapters 1 & 2 (10/10/2013), Chapter 3 (10/17/2013), Chapter 4 (10/24/2013) and Chapter 5 (10/31/2013).
