This is a short documentary video I made for my final uni project, that I'd shot using an iPhone 4S. I edited in Premiere Pro and used Magic Bullet Looks to colour grade.
I wanted the documentary to explore the idea of isolation amongst a densely populated place. The dependence on technology has enabled people to cut themselves off from interacting with each other in public environments. Over a period of 10 years, there’s been a radical change in mobile phone technology and it’s become a huge attachment in people’s lives. Even if we are aware of what’s going on around us, we’re not always 100% focused on one thing, for example, talking to someone face to face whilst texting. Listening to music on the move is another example of isolation amongst a crowed of people. People maybe looking face forward, but their minds could be immersed in the music. I’ve experienced this form of isolation myself, so I’m aware that I’m not paying attention to what’s going on around me. It appears we now spend a lot more time living in our imagination, because I believe we all want to avoid hearing all the negative events happening in the world.
