About this project
ZERO DAY is a feature-length documentary about the dark side of the Internet: cybercrime, cyber-espionage and other threats. Investigative journalist Brian Krebs tracks and interviews a money mule who moves stolen money for the Russian mob. The filmmakers are embedded with the Security Team at Facebookʼs Menlo Park California headquarters with unprecedented fly-on-the-wall access to intrusions, hacks, and criminal activities. We witness hands-on forensics that uncover the perpetrators, and the fascinating, passionate characters who spend every day on the front lines. Cases and investigations can lead anywhere, worldwide. The filmmakers will be there to follow and film it all in real time.
The filmmakers are also working with New York Times reporter John Markoff, Reuters reporter Joe Menn, and author Misha Glenny.
The film is co-financed by BBC Storyville. An offer from Mark Cuban and Magnolia Pictures is in hand for U.S. TV and theatrical distribution, along with international sales. Completion is scheduled for September 2013.
Of course, many of our fans from the world of internet security have evolved beyond hard media! So yes, we just added that yesterday, by popular demand.
