For example, in the short film Nest, holding the phone in landscape mode shows you the point of view of the main character, while holding it in portrait mode shows you the point of view of the Nest security cameras in the home the character is in.

So, like... Night Trap?

Quibi = streaming service that briefly existed in 2020.
Roku Channel = Roku's proprietary streaming service.
(Roku = brand of set-top boxes and smart TVs.)
*AD* = subby trying to be clever.

There were some titles I was interested in but not enough to pay for another ala carte entertainment streamer and the phone based production tricks didn't juice me either. I'm middle aged. I've been ignoring commercials by going to pee, grab a snack or drink, or by exercising my remarkable ability to zone out shiat that doesn't interest me since the mid 1970s.

Still wanting to see "Slugfest" produced by the Russo Brothers, and based on the book about Marvel and DC's rivalry.

shiat, I thought he was referring to what happened when he opened the article.
As in: read the first three sentences, pop up add from the top that scrolls down and covers everything, forcing you to scroll further down..
  Read the next few sentences, pop up add in the middle of the paragraph, that reloads three times.
  Read the next few sentences, pop up add from the side, with sound.
and so on...

So I will get to see Anna Kendrick and a sex doll soon?  I can sit through ads, that was what my childhood was anyways, hell some  shows were ads supported by other ads.
