Famed church of Mac cult figure Ellen Feiss’ film, ‘Bed and Breakfast’ will be broadcast online next week.
The film was shot in France in 2006 and follows a young American couple on vacation in France looking for an old friend who has inherited a castle. It’s the debut movie for Feiss, who became an internet celebrity following her appearance in one of the initial "Switch" campaign ads from Apple.
Feiss became a cult figure after her "Switcher" ad aired in 2002. In one unreleased ad, Feiss talked about an Apple PowerBook: "It’s really fast and it’s silver… and I don’t have to watch airplane movies any more", she said. Her laid back personality generated huge interest in the teenager, who turned down appearances on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman in order to lead a normal teenager’s life.
The film marks the first fictional programming for The Digital Lifestyle, which was founded in November 2007 by former Apple employees.
TheDigitalLifestyle will screen the film on Monday, April 21 at 9.30am ET. During the one-time only broadcast, viewers will be able to chat with each other in real time.
