The CtrlMovie ecosystem is a one-stop-shop for interactive content. It gives filmmakers and content creators the complete toolset to tell branched narrative stories in a truly cinematic way. From our proprietary writing and reading tools, to our editing system and delivery formats, the CtrlMovie platform makes interactive content easy.
«Late Shift» is the world’s first feature-length interactive film created entirely with the CtrlMovie technology. «Late Shift» is currently available on the Apple App Store, AppleTV, Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, and Steam.
CtrlMovies can be played in movie theaters for a collective audience-collaborative experience. Let the cinema audience decide! Using a simple, yet elegant app on participants’ cell phones, viewers vote to decide what characters will do at pivotal points in the narrative.
From download to streaming, watching CtrlMovies at home is simple. CtrlMovies can be distributed on nearly any device or platform and can support both single and multiplayer modes.
CtrlMovie is the only interactive technology that can work on broadcast/satellite TV. Networks can create a “must-see” event that reaches millions of people all at once.
