Netflix Released Behind The Scenes Footage of “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”3 weeks ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Netflix presents Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, the film that embraces interactive participation from the viewers. It’s the first movie from Charlie Brooker’s series, the flick took all aspects of the regular Black Mirror show and made it into a game (pretty much). Those watching are obligated to make choices and the characters’ fates is in the viewers’ hands. Earlier today, the streaming service gave fans a little more insight as to how the movie was created, dropping some behind the scenes footage for the curious.
Posted to the company’s Instagram account is the official poster for Bandersnatch along with a caption explaining what you’re about to get yourself into.
“Yes. This is a Black Mirror interactive movie where YOU make decisions for the lead character. And with only a few days of bad decision making left before all your 2019 resolutions start, you can help him mae some pretty terrible choices. #bandersnatch”
Brooker originally was not on board with the idea of an interactive film but as time progressed along with the plot, he gave in when he realized it would be a perfect fit.
“Netflix asked us if we’d be interested in doing an interactive story. I knew I wanted to do anothe rperiod episode and I thought, ‘Well, what if you’re controlling somebody in the past?’ So it kind of spiraled from there.”
In addition, he went on to emphasize the challenges he was faced with when it came to the creation of the film.
“When I started out, I thought ‘Well, this will be fairly straightforward, I’m sure I’ll have to draw a flow chart at one point.’ Cut to several months later, it kind of exponentially started to balloon.”
