MTV Scream co-stars Carlson Young and John Karna have teamed up with Wanted director and Searching and Unfriended producer Timur Bekmambetov for a new lockdown short dubbed Love in Isolation.
Young (True Blood, Key and Peele) and Karma (Valley of the Boom) play two singletons who meet on the dating app Bumble and see their plans to meet in real-life dashed by the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
Okay, so not really horror… but the cast and crew involved has me excited.
The short was shot using Bekmambetov’s Screenlife technology with the two only speaking to each other via FaceTime, enabling the film’s production to be made possible with no actor-actor or actor-crew contact.
Bekmambetov says: “A couple of years ago, Screenlife seemed experimental, an artist’s method, but now it’s arguably one of a few ways to go for film production and, who knows, maybe in half a year it will become the new normal.”
Love in Isolation was co-written and co-directed by Jeremy Coleman and Noah Rinsky. Will you check it out? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
