Digital Media and Film Director Guy Shelmerdine of Dark Corner Studios entered in contact with Coupler Mfg Co by recommendation of Christian Parkes, Chief Brand Officer of Alamo Drafthouse, to collaborate on a Virtual Reality film that was to be featured at film and music festivals around the country. Conceptualized and designed by Tom Hartman at Salt Studios, Coupler brings a clean and holy, yet dark and morbid rendition to the idea of a coffin used in place of a chair by utilizing a dark, leather-stitched interior against a bright, white exterior. A LED lit sign denoting the name of the film along with seat vibration technology that is sync’d with the film is also added for effect. Click here to read the review!
