  4. The first 10 minutes, including the opening titles and original music by The Bystanders, of Ramzi Abed's provocative and innovative new suspense film, "TELEPHONE WORLD", starring scream queen, Elissa Dowling, and hot new indie darlings, Chandler Maness, Kara Hyatt, Tamarah Murley, T.L. Young, Tirza Wohl, Eric Fleming, Julie Rose, Don Purnell, and Icky The Cat.

    The main body of the film was shot in one continuous take in real time, with surprises intercut and intermixed.

    It will premiere sometime in 2012, with a run on the film festival circuit to follow, before a dvd release in late 2012 or early 2013.

    The director, Ramzi Abed, is primarily known for his avant-garde erotic photography and his widely distributed arthouse cult films, "The Devil's Muse" and "In A Spiral State". His newest films include the documentary, "The New Erotic / Art Sex Revolution", and the thriller, "Noirland" starring James Duval. Both of these films are also coming soon.

    Watch out for "TELEPHONE WORLD".

  5. "TELEPHONE WORLD" stars Elissa Dowling in a reality directed by Ramzi Abed.

    Sound design by Borja Sau

    *Note: The video starts at 1:19 AND ends at 5:05.

    The main body of the film is composed in one continuous shot in one mysterious location. The opening of the film was shot with an iPhone. Everything that happens onscreen is entirely real. The film's actual plot is driven by real incoming phone calls and horror that both unfold live during one single take of filming in West Hollywood, California.

    Three cameras were used during production: An Apple iPhone for the opening title sequence, and a Panasonic DVX100A and Canon HV30 simultaneously shooting for the main body of the film (in one single uninterrupted continuously recorded take).
