Madness Goes Viral In The Fabulous Trailer For Spanish Horror FRAMED
There have been a few attempts to wed the real world of social media and streaming video with horror film in recent years and while none has really seemed to nail it as of yet it would appear that Spanish helmer Marc Jordan Martinez may very well have hit the sweet spot with the upcoming Framed.
Currently in pre-production for an early 2016 shoot, Martinez will later today present an initial proof of concept teaser to audiences at the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival as part of their Sitges Coming Soon program of in-progress projects. We've got an exclusive first look at that teaser to share with you and it's a doozy. Check out the official press release for details below and the trailer embedded below that!
The short film director Marc Jordan Martinez, a 2012 graduate of the ESCAC (School of Cinema and Audiovisual of Catalonia), author of the awarded "Timothy" (2014) and "Horseface" (2015) and co-director of the group film "Los Inocentes" (2013), produced by ESCAC FILMS, will make the leap to feature films with "Framed", produced by the director and producer Marc Carreté (Asmodexia, 2014).
The film, a contemporary teen horror slasher, will also be the presentation of CREATURES OF THE DARK, a new independent label based in Barcelona, which will specialize in the production of low budget entertainment horror contents.
"Framed" will be shot in Barcelona in March 2016. James Cuspinera, ESCAC final projects tutor and one of persons responsible of "EVA" (Kike Maíllo, 2011) is the script writer of the film.
The plot of the film will analyze the use and abuse of a sinister network. Here's the synopsis:
Framed is a mysterious websites that emerge from the Internet only during 24 hours. The users who logged in could live broadcast from their mobile phones being followed by millions of Internet users all around the world. The website offered a great sum of money to the user that gathers more audience in those 24 hours. There are no rules. There is no censorship.
User "Damon37" won 2 million euro, thanks to his 100 million viewers. He live slaughtered three girls and, although a lot of people thought that was a fake video, next day the mutilated bodies of the victims were found. Neither he nor the creators of the RSI were ever identified.
Today, nearly a year after the events the website has surfaced again with a simple countdown. Human greed and curiosity have no limits. Expectation is huge. The authorities warn about the risks in every town. When counter reaches 0:00:00 they will confirm their suspicions. Framed is back!

Technical and artistic team will be formed by young talents. Among them Yusei Riera and Hodei del Barrio, director of photography and art director respectively, also trained in ESCAC and whose work we've already seen in previous Marc Martinez Jordan films.
