REMOTE

a narrative film in English

Synopsis: Temporarily connected in time, a man tries to prevent the murder of a young woman, living in his house 30 years in the past.

A Red Sneakers Media Production

Written and Directed by Marc Roussel
Produced by Ron Basch, Marc Roussel and Mark Sanders

Press:
"Mr Roussel is a VERY gifted writer and director, the performances here are elevated by his skill at his craft, and at 20 minutes; REMOTE wraps itself up in perhaps the neatest, most satisfying bow any fan of the short genre film could ever hope for." The Conduit The Conduit Speaks.com

"Short films generally need a good hook, and Remote has one...Director Marc Roussel exhibits a certain amount of style in the execution of Remote and manages to keep us guessing as to what is going on." Rue Morgue Magazine

"Why is it so good? Because Roussel was smart enough to focus on the writing. The story of Remote is tight. It takes a high concept involving a time-paradox and plays it out to its full, horrific potential. It has as much suspense, scares and twists as a feature length film so; in short, I'd say it's the whole package." Quiet Earth

"Remote is a really intense and original short. I'd love to see this story get the feature length treatment." Planet of Terror

"Remote is a tense thriller that has one completely invested in how it will turn out for the characters." All Things Horror

Starring Ron Basch, Sarah Silverthorne, George Komorowski, Peter Racanelli and Julie McCarthy
