Quarantine has led to the shifting of dates of shooting for a number of films. Others have either pushed their release dates or will be streaming them on streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Voot and Hulu amongst others. Even though a lot of important and non-important activities are being performed online owing to the pandemic, no one ever thought that new films will be shot amongst lockdown. However, this has been proven wrong recently which will definitely lead to more movies being shot this lockdown season. Nick Simon and his crew have shot an entire movie in quarantine.

As crazy and unattainable it may sound, this has been made possible. The cast of the film involves Claire Holt, Katherine McNamara, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Darren Barnet and Timothy Granaderos from various popular shows like The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, 13 Reasons Why and Never Have I Ever. The actors were sent makeup, camera equipment, props, and lights to all the actors, who were each isolating at home, and explained how to set it all up over Zoom conference calls. The whole movie has been written, produced, packaged and shot within the quarantine.

As the untitled horror movie is coming to the end, the makers revealed this as they were looking for distributors. The movie is about some desperate young stars and how they invoke a demonic spirit while shooting a quickie horror film. The whole cast and crew used to have meetings on Zoom and never met on an offline basis.

From online modelling photo shoots to online fundraising live concerts, all the forms of activities which require interaction are being carried out digitally. However, the idea to execute a complete movie online certainly shows what the future might behold for streaming shows and web series. Thus, this would add up to the realism of the situation as more audience will be able to find a sense familiarity in the situation.
