If you're reading this right now, you're probably a cyborg--though it might be surprising, it's true. In this compelling commentary documentary, we will explore the extent to which and how this new dominating species evolved, and make the important realization that while personal devices may provide certain benefits, consistent use is dissolving the line between cyborgs and humans--diminishing the quality of human life, and eventually leading us to an unfathomably disturbing future.
This was written, directed, shot, produced, and edited by Gus Serrano as a final project for his History of Mass Media Technologies course. All footage is original, and music (besides that of Nero and Big Gigantic) was provided kindly by his close friends Davis Weimer (Harpo Speaks) and The Toy Box (Carter Matthews). A Sony Alpha DSLT A65 camera was used with a 35mm Prime and 75-300mm Telephoto, for shooting the various interviews, stock footage, and timelapses. If you have any questions, let me know!
