BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH Featurette Explores How the Interactive Adventure Was Made
Netflix’s experimental interactive adventure film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was certainly an interesting experience. It’s not the best thing to come from Netflix or the Black Mirror franchise, but it served its purpose in testing out a new way for audiences to enjoy films.

We now have a new featurette for the film to share with you that breaks down and explores the process and the work that went into developing the film.
