But Aneesh Chaganty is not new to telling stories through screens—the Searching director and co-writer spent two years making ads at Google.

He famously landed the role after making a viral short called "Seeds" that leveraged Google Glass, another creative constraint.

So even if the premise of screen movies feels pervasive nowadays, you haven't quite seen one like what Chaganty and his co-writer/producer Sev Ohanian (Fruitvale Station) have put together.

Searching, starring John Cho and Debra Messing, arrives in theaters this week.

And within the first 10 minutes, this new film offers more than another run-of-the-mill "screen movie."

Loving father David (Cho) simply adds a folder labeled "Margot," and soon audiences sweep through a surprisingly natural-feeling montage of his young daughter's life all done through a laptop screen.
