Glass-walled condo becomes B.C. stage
Lookie-loo rom-com turns out to be 450-hour condo commercial
Three actors are living inside a glass structure in a Surrey, B.C., mall, with just about all their movements broadcast on the internet and watched by passers-by
They are acting in a 450-hour live, online video "drama," 10 hours per day, over the next six weeks.
Given the staging of the production, the audience is not just watching on the web but are also among shoppers walking by the virtual fishbowl of a stage at the Surrey Central City Mall.
But it's not a reality show, or pure drama. It's all part of a unique commercial effort to sell real estate.The CBC's Bob Nixon explains.
