Netflix Interactive: Black Mirror: Bandersnatch – behind the scenes

Black Mirror is a British Sci-Fi TV series you can catch on Netflix. It’s offered in anthology style (4 seasons) and seems quite reminiscent of one of my all-time faves – The Twilight Zone. The latest offering is a standalone film, created by Charlie Brooker ( series creator)  and directed by David Slade released the last week of December 2018.
What makes it different is that this psychological feature is interactive where you choose which way the character goes and thus affect the ending.

The film, produced by Netflix, takes place in England in 1984. It stars Fionn Whitehead, Will Poulter and Craig Parkinson. The premise of the film is about a young programmer, Stefan Butler (Whitehead) who begins to question reality as he adapts a dark fantasy novel by Jerome F. Davies (fictitious) into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. I’m sure you can see where this is going.
It lasts about 90 minutes, but also depends on how long it takes for you to make a decision.
Below is an official behind-the-scenes look at how Bandersnatch came to life, hearing from Netflix VP of Product Todd Yellin, along with Charlie Brooker, Annabel Jones and others from the creative team.
