TIMECODE is an experimental film which includes digital filming, the screen divided into 4 parts and watched simultaneously, plus the actors improvising their dialogue. The movie is set around an Hollywood studio headed by Stellan Skarsgard who's apparently succumbing to the effects of booze, drugs, boredom and women. The daily business of the studio continues with the arrival of various people and personalities attending auditions, meetings etc. and the various dialogues weave in and out of each other.
