Gabi Zietsman quote iconIf any filmmaker with a tight budget wants to dabble in this digital style of storytelling, Searching would be the best film to use as a case study and how to interweave the digital sphere with the plot.

Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I liked the pic quite a bit, yet hope it doesn’t end up as one of the first of many of what could be a heavily copied and imitated cinematic storytelling form.
