This teaser was mixed live in real time with the video file of the complete film on the desktop.
Pixelschatten is a John Hughes film for a new generation:
Pixel (Ben Gageik) is a 22-year-old small-town blogger: Everyone can read about him and his friends online. His blog “Pixelschatten” used to be the hippest thing in town, but now the local fame has faded away. His friends go to college, have new friends and interests, and his girlfriend Suse (Zora Klostermann) is irritated by the private issues revealed on the blog. When Pixel realizes that everyone but him is moving on, he changes all their lives with just one post…
“Pixelschatten” is a unique cinematic experience, a quirky-melancholic, yet warm and funny portrait of the “generation Internet”, mixing the first-person point of you aesthetics of “Enter The Void” with the zeitgeist of “The Social Network”. But this time it’s not about the greedy entrepreneurs behind a moneymaking machine, it’s about the people that spend their everyday life online. It’s about you. And the spoilers for your life.
