His Violet Mind

Evan Sullivan (Ryan Bruce) is a troubled young man and an up and coming DJ. He can’t make those last few steps from being a small town guy to a big-time star. He is holding himself back, but why? Maybe it’s because of her. Sophie (Julia Lawton), a beautiful woman that tantalizes, seduces, and tempts him into an addictive, substance abusive lifestyle that Evan just can’t resist. As Evan’s life spirals out of control, he pushes away those closest to him in favor of Sophie. Evan will have to make the choice between what he wants and what has been in front of him this whole time.

His Violet Mind is an interactive movie revolving around several characters, each with their own unique point-of-view (POV) that reveals more about this dark and twisted story. The viewer can interact with the film and chose different viewpoints on characters, sometimes in a completely different time and space. Each POV provides more information on the drama that ensues. Depending on which characters the viewer decides to observe, they will learn more about the plot. But, the story might not be so black and white. Maybe some things are just meant to be violet.

The final, multi-point-of-view movie URL will launch on hisvioletmind.com later in May 2011.
