Aneesh Chaganty has a thing for technology

Before making his new film, “Searching,” Aneesh Chaganty made a viral short film called “Seeds,” filmed entirely on Google Glass. His ability to tell a human story using innovative technology is what helped him make his latest. “Searching,” Chaganty's feature directing debut, is a thriller starring John Cho as a father in search of his teenage daughter. The film has no conventional cinematography. Instead, the story is told through just computer and phone screens. Chaganty spoke with The Frame about his production style and why he initially though "Searching" would be a short film.
