That’s right, over 14 million hits and counting for the short film phenom ‘SELFIE FROM HELL’ now at home as a feature film with IndustryWorks Studios.
Vancouver, Los Angeles – From the producers of the cult horror ‘American Mary’, and the newly released thriller ‘WRECKER’, IndustryWorks Studios has acquired the rights to the most inspiring and impressive short film to hit the web in recent history. The incredible tense footage that took over Youtube focuses on a selfie-snapping girl who notices a looming figure that appears behind her in the photos, and is subsequently attacked by what turns out to be a horrifying entity.
‘Selfie From Hell’ was created by Meelah Adams and Erdal Ceylan, two student filmmakers from Cologne, Germany. Meelah made the short film and also starred in it as part of her bachelor’s thesis on the effects of viral videos, one that is likely to score her high marks. Along with author/director Erdal Ceylan, they released the short on YouTube and it took the internet by storm and became viral. Now it’s time for the feature film.
“For many years we have dreamed of making a full-length movie. With ‘Selfie From Hell’ this dream has now become a reality. We are very glad having found IndustryWorks to help make that happen and we very much look forward to working together.” – Meelah Adams, Erdal Ceylan, Filmmakers, “Selfie From Hell”.
“We saw what IndustryWorks did with American Mary and can’t be more thrilled to be working with them on this project.” – Erdal Ceylan, Director and co-creator, “Selfie From Hell”.
“We are excited to be involved in this internet sensation and proud to continue supporting new and up coming filmmakers.” says Evan Tylor CEO of IndustryWorks
