Paignton filmmaker Ashley Wing’s sci-fi short Fracture was seen by thousands of people across 32 countries following its premiere on PlayStation Home last Thursday.
Ashley told D&CFilm: “When we first walked into the PlayStation Home Cinema it looked quite bare. I thought no one was interested!
“Then I turned around -more and more people came into the room and it was pretty packed. It was the busiest I had ever seen the cinema.
“I’m happy to say the ebb and flow of people seems consistent so far. I’m really happy with the feedback -and I’m even more happy with the increasing hits we’re getting for the film.”
Produced with the help of the FXHome website, Fracture focuses on a small mining base on the unforgiving surface of a distant world. Its small crew have known loneliness, love and betrayal in their time there, and in such a claustrophobic environment, secrets can’t stay hidden forever.
Comments so far include ‘this made my morning’, ‘kudos on being the first to come to Sony with this’, ‘looks pretty cool’, ‘a triumph for a no-budget project’, ‘why doesn’t this have a million views?’, ‘dazzling effects and a great story’ and ‘this is blockbuster-worthy -amazing, amazing job’.
Fracture is being shown on PlayStation Home until October 6, 2011. If you don’t have a PS, you can watch the full movie in 720p below!
Ashley is currently prepping his next film -a post-apocalyptic drama due to be shot in the South West. If you’d like to invest or get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
