Anna wakes up in a strange white room. She has 60 seconds to escape; when the timer hits zero she drops dead and reawakens in the same room, joined by a shadowy impression of her previous self. Every 60 seconds this cycle repeats and through each iteration Anna must think ahead and learn from her mistakes to solve a series of puzzles and escape this dystopian maze. 

Iteration 1 is a short Sci-Fi film co-written by myself and Jesse Lupini and was one of the six winners of Crazy 8s 2016. It stars Katharine Isabelle (Hannibal, American Mary) and Zak Santiago (Shooter, Continuum). You can follow the film festival tour of Iteration 1 on our twitter, facebook, and Instagram pages.
