Sallyanne Massimini, a 2018 SHOOT New Directors Showcase alum, directed, wrote, lensed and produced a short titled N.I., billed as the first narrative live-action piece to be shot on RED Digital Cinema’s first phone, the Hydrogen. This ScreenWork entry is a trailer for that short.

N.I. captures a romantic encounter that goes horribly wrong--with a high-tech twist. The short stars Giorgia Whigham (The Punisher, 13 Reasons Why), David Meza (Millenials, In Echo Park) and features an original score by The Angel.

Massimini had access to prototypes with beta firmware before the Hydrogen phones were available to the public in November. Using state-of-the-art tech seemed apropos given that technology is prominent in the short’s storyline.
