YouTube, the world’s largest video-sharing platform, has released a trailer of his first original film, A Heist With Markiplier, in an interactive format he’s been working on for a while. The action-themed film features 31 different endings.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, released by digital broadcasting giant Netflix at the end of last year, brought a whole new breath to the streaming market. The film, which was in an interactive format, gave the audience the opportunity to direct the story.
When all alternative endings and reinterpreted scenes are added, the duration of the film exceeds 5 hours. Bandersnatch, though boring by some, actually puts a rather striking perspective on the structure of future series and films.
Following the footsteps of Netflix, YouTube shared a trailer of his first original interactive film, A Heist With Markiplier. The role of the robbery-themed action film is the American YouTube phenomenon Markiplie, whose real name is Mark Edward Fischback, as the name suggests. With more than 24.4 million subscribers, the name is known for his videos about horror-themed survival games.
YouTube’s first original interactive film, A Heist With Markiplie, will leave viewers confronted with decisions that can conceive 31 possible outcomes. The film, created by combining 61 different videos, is quite different from Bandersnatch in this aspect; but it is still worth a look.
