Back to REALITi

by Tom on September 5, 2015 in Architecture, Film

Jonathan King and Chad Taylor’s micro-budget film REALITi, which debuted at last year’s Film Festival, is now available for paid streaming or download on Vimeo On Demand.

A dark thriller set in the very near future, REALITi was shot in and around Wellington. One striking aspect (at least for me) was the inventive use it made of local modernist architecture, from the CIT campus and former Avalon studios in the Hutt Valley, through to Ernst Plischke’s Sutch-Smith house in Brooklyn.
