Andrew Bowser's Worm is a true original. Shot entirely with a Gopro Hero 2 mounted to a Snorricam and featuring only one seamless edit, Worm uses new technology to tell a timeless story of the lengths we will go to protect our family. Filmed on location in Guthrie, Oklahoma, Worm follows the titular character (played by writer-director Bowser, in a tour-de-force performance), in real time, as he attempts to clear his name and save his daughter from a group of vicious criminals. As Worm comes to understand his role in an ever-expanding conspiracy, his transformation from town laughingstock to local hero takes place before our eyes, offering a rare glimpse into that singular moment when one must choose to stand and fight...or risk having everything they hold dear taken away by powers beyond their control. Worm chooses to fight, and we're with him every step of the way. Employing an intimate shooting style that places you in the middle of the action, Worm is part neo-noir, part experiment and, ultimately, a satisfying indie thriller that hooks you from the beginning and doesn't let up until the adrenaline-fueled finale.
