Roddenberry Entertainment's "White Room: 02B3" Set For Showing At San Diego Comic-Con
The much anticipated Roddenberry Entertainment film "White Room: 02B3" is poised to make its North American debut at San Diego Comic-Con. The new film is a genuine Roddenberry endeavor, examining the human condition from - literally - every angle as the story reveals a bizarre experiment that could help change the face of humanity forever.
According to Tony Janning (Comedy Central's The Legend of Neal), who plays the role of "Two" in the film, "Working on White Room, especially the 360 version, was very unique because we were literally closed off in that room. No crew, no director, everyone else was on the outside. It was just the six of us and after a few takes I really started to feel like I was trapped in there. It added so much to everyone's performance and commitment level. I loved every minute of it."
Beyond Comic-Con, the film will be showcased at San Diego Film Festival in September and will debut in its full 360-version in dome theaters across the country later this year. There will also be an app that enables fans to have the 360 dome experience from their own smart device.

‘White Room:02B3’ Makes US Premier Comic-Con Weekend
Film joins ‘Trek Nation’ screening for sold-out Roddenberry Entertainment event
SAN DIEGO; June 19, 2012 — Roddenberry Entertainment, the successor of the science fiction pioneer that brought television and film audiences Star Trek, announced today that its innovative film, White Room: 02B3, will make its stateside debut when it accompanies Trek Nation at Roddenberry’s exclusive event at San Diego’s Birch North Park Theatre on July 12. This will mark the first time American audiences will be able to see White Room:02B3 and Trek Nation in theater.
Starring Breckin Meyer, Tamlyn Tomita, David Blue and Rachel True, as well as Internet icons Tony Janning and Milynn Sarley, White Room:02B3 is about six strangers who wake up in a white room to find out they are part of a bizarre experiment that could help change the face of humanity forever.
With over 100,000 sci-fi fans planning to flood San Diego during Comic-Con weekend, this event is already sold out. Luckily for those who weren’t able to grab a spot for the double feature screening, fans can see White Room:02B3 at the San Diego Film Festival in late September where it’s been accepted as an official selection.
The July debut of White Room:02B3 in a traditional theater format will tease the upcoming 360-degree version of the film to debut in dome theaters later this year. The 360-dgree version will project the film around audiences to create an engaging, interactive experience unlike anything before. Filmed on a set constructed with pieces of science fiction history, including props from Blade Runner and Reel Steel, White Room: 02B3 is a genuine Roddenberry endeavor which examines humanity from, literally, every angle.
“San Diego Comic-Con weekend is the perfect setting for Roddenberry Entertainment to bring our newest films to fans in an exciting cinematic environment,” said White Room:02B3 executive producer and Roddenberry Entertainment COO Trevor Roth. “We’re eager to personally engage with our fans and introduce them to two films that approach science fiction and explore the human condition in such unique ways.”
