Film Uses Audience's Smart Phones To Solve Mystery

""The Witness" works like a smartphone-centered fusion of a traditional thriller and an interactive ARG: German viewers applied to participate online, and the "winners" got to enter a real-life version of the movie in which they play a role, using their phones to watch snippets of the film that play out like a virtual layer over the physical scene they're standing in."

In the very near future, visual effects artists will be called on to expand into and apply their skill sets toward new media and transmedia properties. [via @Marsattac]
