After hitting the festival circuit, the Danielle Panabaker-led TIME LAPSE has finally found a home at XLrator Media. The multi-platform releasing company is known for such films as JIMI: ALL IS BY MY SIDE and AMERICAN MARY.
“A smart sci-fi thriller with a mind-bending premise, TIME LAPSE combines the ingenious structure of Memento with the dark comic irony of The Twilight Zone,” says XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon. “It epitomizes the exciting new wave of ‘lo-fi sci-fi’ films reported in the Wall Street Journal that rely on original, clever stories and masterful filmmaking rather than hundred-million-dollar visual effects budgets.”
The deal was negotiated by XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon and Lea Flome with Paradigm Agency’s Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver on behalf of the filmmakers.
TIME LAPSE is a genre-mashing thriller with bits of comedy thrown in for waste, in a sweet, scientific recalling of a group of friends and their newfound time machine. This particular machine is capable of capturing photos up to twenty-four hours into the future, thus showing the gang what lies ahead for them. However, when a mischievous outsider seeks to make his claim on their prophetic gadget, this trio must overcome their wants and wishes and step up to the challenge, in our to protect what’s theirs.
TIME LAPSE is set to hit theaters in America on May 15th, 2015.
