*WARNING*
Film contains intense and horrific scenes

One by one a family is possessed by a message on their TV, turning them into aggressive husks of themselves...inquire to find out more.

Looking to enter the national film festival circuit with an eventual online (Youtube, Vimeo) release, "UP NEXT" is a short film created by a group of Independent filmmakers with film school and industry experience.

The characters, especially the child of the family, go through some emotionally and physically intense moments - these scenes will be shot and directed with safety and sensitivity.

The child's role will begin being tucked into bed and sneaking out, followed by a moment where his/her mother then grabs them (shot with a fast shaky camera to avoid any real pushing or grabbing), and the father punching the child twice (however the child will be offscreen, obstructed by an object - like the couch or a wall - and only the fathers motion of punching will be shown -- NO CONTACT WILL BE SEEN. The child is then picked up and placed on the couch.
