Cody Simpson has a very cool new project – a Youtube movie!
Cody Simpson will star in a new film titled Finding Cody which is a scripted, choose your own adventure movie set for release this June.
If you’ve ever seen Andy Grammer’s music video for “Keep Your Head Up,” then you might be familiar with the “choose your own adventure” type videos on Youtube. Well Cody’s new movie is taking it to the next level.
Finding Cody is the first YouTube choose your own adventure-style film starring a major musical artist. The film will feature multiple annotations allowing viewers to click and choose innumerable paths to reach the exciting conclusion, a surprise that will be every fan’s dream come true.
Directed by filmmaker Michael Canzoneiero, from a script he co-wrote with Marco Ricci, Finding Cody stars Gatlin Green and Lia Marie Johnson, herself a genuine YouTube sensation with over 11 million individual video views. The film follows self-proclaimed “biggest Cody Simpson fan in the world” Lucy in her quest to see her idol performing live in concert. Though faced by an array of obstacles – the show is sold out and she’s just been grounded by her mom – with the viewer’s choices guiding their way, Lucy and her best friend Lily might well make their dreams come true.
Among the certain highlights of Finding Cody will be a behind-the-scenes, all-access tour of a Cody Simpson concert. The full-length event is slated to be filmed Saturday, April 28th at Anaheim’s House of Blues.
Finding Cody will have its world premiere this June via Warner Music Group’s original YouTube Channel, “The Warner Sound,” located at www.youtube.com/thewarnersound.
How cool does that sound?!?! We will be at the concert tomorrow, so stay tuned for details!
