CtrlMovie is a novel interactive movie format. It gives filmmakers the tools to tell multi-optional stories in a truly cinematic way. The audience gets to make decisions on behalf of the main character and is thrilled to see the consequences of their choices unfold on screen seamlessly without a noticeable gap or edit.

The film never stops. No decision is still an action. The viewers are under the same time pressure as the protagonist, together as a group of people in theatres, or individually on an iPad.
