Abstract: With this project, I wanted to create an interactive short film where the viewer takes the reins and becomes the protagonist by making decisions that the main character will adopt. This will turn them into a viewer-user, creating a hybrid between cinema and video game that requires full attention since there is limited time to make a choice, and this time can vary depending on the situation and the reaction time of the protagonist. This short film is raw, dark, and infused with a certain grittiness, where the viewer participates in an uncomfortable story that blends genres like drama and horror. It aims to be a tribute to American Bmovies from the 80s and 90s, and if the right choices are made, we can experience a harsh, violent, and disturbing revenge. To achieve this, I create the character of a vigilante mother who will do anything to keep her child in a safe environment, but paradoxically leads them to the worst of fates by making wrong decisions. There are no happy endings. They don't exist in life. In fact, this story is based on my personal experience. Several months ago, a tense atmosphere started to develop in the apartment below mine, and after seeing strange people coming in and out of the building, my partner and I discovered that we had a drug den in the building. As parents, the decisions we could make were (and still are because they're still there) limited. The police claim they will investigate, but we haven't seen any changes after several months. So the most violent option in this short film is basically a recreation of my darkest and most disturbing thoughts.
