Screenlife is a new format of visual content. Developed as an idea used for indie films and web clips, screenlife is now being used to produce content with worldwide distribution: like full-length movies, documentaries, and TV shows. Everything you see in screenlife is happening on the screen of someone’s device – a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. The action takes place on screen. Like right now.
