Madelaine Petsch, iPOP Alumni, has much to celebrate this week. Fan’s of the ‘Riverdale’ star’s can watch her latest feature, ‘Sightless’ on-demand. The Indie thriller, written and directed by Cooper Karl, started filming in May of 2019.
In the film, Ellen played by Petsch, becomes a veritable shut-in after being viciously blinded by an unidentified assailant. Ellen soon becomes suspicious that everyone around her isn’t who they claim to be. In a post shared to Madelaine’s Instagram page, the star had this to say: “This film is one of the most challenging roles and complex projects I’ve ever been lucky enough to be a part of,” Madelaine wrote on Instagram.
She continues on by adding: “since this was shot entirely from the perspective of what my character *imagined* was taking place (i.e. a bird being green in her head and then finding out it’s actually blue and the color-changing) the real MVP of this project was our script supervisor LJ, who helped fearlessly navigate the ever-changing set to keep with continuity only she could see. thank you and congratulations to the one and only @cooperkarl !!! & to the most prepared co-star in the game @kochakola❤️…Sightless is avail TODAY on demand!! Here’s some behind the scenes to show you just how annoying I am 💀🤡,” Madelaine added in another post. ‘Sightless’ is now available on Digital HD and on-demand.
