Oscilloscope Pictures will release comedy It's a Disaster one vine at a time starting at 4.30pm ET Tuesday.

Good news if you're a fan of Arrested Development's David Cross, Julia Stiles, and/or America Ferrera: They have a new film which you can watch today, for free.

The downside?

You'll need to watch it in six-second chunks on Twitter's new video-sharing app Vine. And you’ll have to wait patiently as a movie distributor's intern (probably) painstakingly films and uploads each clip on an iPhone—the only way to currently share videos with Vine.

Oscilloscope Pictures will release comedy It's a Disaster one vine at a time starting at 4.30pm ET Tuesday, with a representative for the distributor calling it a "tongue in cheek" experiment.

"Jean-Luc Godard once said that he pities French cinema because it has no money and American cinema because it has no ideas," director Todd Berger said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "Well this is certainly an idea."

The film's running time is 88 minutes, which means Oscilloscope will need to make approximately 880 Vine videos to share the whole thing.

This is hardly the first promotional stunt with Vine. Earlier this week, digital agency Code Computerlove turned several clips into a comic book called "The Last Drop,"

#everybodyspurts: Vine gets a meme, and it's kind of gross
An early meme on video-sharing community Vine has all the hallmarks of a Web classic: it's funny, a tad gross, and easily imitable. You don't even need friends to embarrass themselves doing the Harlem Shake; it's one you can do all by yourself.
