Intel and Toshiba Collaborate on Bizarre Social Film "The Power Inside," You Could Be in It

Intel and Toshiba aren't exactly strange bedfellows, but put the two of them together to collaborate on a Hollywood-quality film and, well, things tend to get a little weird. To two technology firms are working on a social film titled "The Power Inside" starring Harvey Keitel ("Reservoir Dogs"), Craig Roberts ("Submarine"), Analeigh Tipton ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"), Reid Ewing ("Modern Family"), and Zack Pearlman ("The Inbetweeners"), and possibly you as well.

First things first. "The Power Inside" is described as a blockbuster-class experiment in social entertainment. This is actually the third year Intel and Toshiba have partnered with award-winning directors to produce a Hollywood-quality film, and last year's effort, "The Beauty Inside," won a 2013 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding New Approach to Daytime Programming.

The Power Inside

"The way that we make films and how viewers interact with entertainment content is evolving," said Will Speck of the film's directing team Speck and Gordon. "Social films give us the opportunity to tell stories in a new way by creating an immersive, participatory experience for the audience.


What's the film about? An alien invasion by a race of extraterrestrial mustaches and unibrows who take over the upper lips and eyes of humans, of course! Told you it was a bizarre. If you want to be in it, you can audition for a role on the project's Facebook page.

It was pretty fun. Ultimately I ended up doing some work for Harvey, Lorraine Bracco (his ex-wife), and then Robert De Niro (One of Harvey's best friends at the time).

You work for him when he was doing a bunch of stuff for Tarantino? I've always wanted to go down to Austin and see his and Robert Rodriguez studios down there.

It was around 1999 - 2003-ish. I remember him working on U-571 and Little Nicky, but not much else specifically.

Gotcha. Pretty cool the people you got to meet. When I worked in telecom I got meet Mark Cuban and see him (well his security) throw my boss out and did work for Troy Aikman's ex-wife (literally a month after their divorce). Beyond that haven't has the opportunity to meet anyone.
