Exclusive: Every film needs a sales hook. UFO conspiracy thriller The Phoenix Incident has been flying under the radar even as viral seeds have been germinating across the web like sleeper cells of marketing data. The feature debut of veteran gaming director Keith Arem (Call of Duty, Titanfall) was shot quietly last year and inked select foreign distribution deals during November’s Afm. It screens next week for buyers here in La, accompanied by a transmedia viral campaign that Arem hopes will highlight a new kind of digital storytelling.
“The idea is that you will be on your phone leaving the theater, Googling the information to see if it’s real,” Arem told me.
Arem has two decades in video games under his belt as a talent director on the popular Call of Duty, Saints Row, Ghost Recon, Spiderman, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Persona, Prince of Persia, and Rainbow Six franchises. »
