PoV, which was shot entirely in Vancouver, BC, is the first project under Aftermath Medias new Digital Circus banner. Like TLC, it is cutting edge taking advantage of the high-tech digital equipment the movie was shot and recorded on Digital BetaCam using, for the most part, natural lighting. Concurrent with post-production of the movie, interactive elements will be created. PoV will then be transferred to film and be available as a linear theatrical release, as well as an interactive DVD and online movie.
PoV is an edgy suspense story about obsession, art, eroticism and murder. It follows the story of a beautiful and mysterious artist named Jane. She is a recluse who avoids all real human contact, expressing herself only through her art. She is running from her past
a past that has seen her kill a man. She develops a strange attraction for a neighbor named Frank on whom she spies from her apartment window. She takes photographs of him without his knowledge and from these images creates composite drawings of the two of them together. Jane also observes and draws her friend Mary, who has a Lonely-Hearts relationship with an anonymous man whom shes never seen. Eventually they agree to meet and Jane goes to the meeting in disguise but gets mistaken for Mary and is suddenly caught up in dangerous situations and bizarre events, both real and imagined.
