The Acid Theatre

Director: The Heyl Brothers.
In this alternate reality of the ‘50’s we follow a little girl “Iza” (Lisa Eernisse) who after a horrifying incident with her father, wakes up in the afterlife. Here she meets strange creatures of the night, who take her to a party of darkness hosted by “Rinse”. Surrounded by terrifying creatures she feels utterly disrupted in her reality. Rinse notices this and shows her the alternate version of the party through the power of his music. Now Iza is in a blissful place, meeting all the wonderful creatures she once feared. But the journey is far from over. Iza needs to get home and only Rinse can show her the way… The Concept - Additional Information The Acid Theatre is a unique concept evolving from a meeting between a director and a music artist. The video and the song are created simultaneously by an extraordinary joint venture of two professionals, both specialized in their game. Challenged by their ability to adapt to one another the project was put to a whole new level of creativity. Another unique thing about this unique production is that it’s been fully financed by the artists. This gave them total creative freedom to apply the newest techniques in cinema production, like the custom developed E.D.I.© effect. Dubtek DuBTeK , a mix of “Dubstep” and “Tekno”, is a new futuristic and up-beat dance music. DuBTeK is on the rise to be the next big thing and “The Acid Theatre” shall be the messenger to deliver this prophecy to the devoted followers of dance music. EDI “Extreme Detail Image” is the new ultra high definition experience which will give your film the fullest and richest detail possible. The Acid Theatre© is the first film project in which E.D.I has been fully enabled.
