Mr. Payback

About the Project:

Mr. Payback: An Interactive Movie is a 1995 American science-fiction/adventure short film written by Bob Gale and co-directed by Gale and Charles Croughwell.[1] Designed as an interactive movie, it is approximately 20 to 30 minutes long, depending on audience interaction. It requires the audience to vote for various directions the story will take, using a joystick attached to the arm of their seats.[2] The film stars an android (Billy Warlock) who, in a number of possible storylines, takes action by humiliating or attacking people who deserve it. Gale and Christopher Lloyd, who had previously worked on the Back to the Future trilogy, worked on this film as well, and the music was scored by Michael Tavera, who had composed the music for the animated Back to the Future series
