A story about social media and how it effects us as individuals and as a group. Told through the eyes of video artist Loren Feldman.
His story. Their story. Your story. Our story.
The year is 2038. "SoMe" is the story of Social Media as told through the experiences of Loren Feldman. It will feature interviews with luminaries, and stories about both Loren and the many people he has met over the course of his career on the web. It will tell the story of the people and culture that drives the Internet and social media. The good, the bad, the ugly. The underlying narrative to all of it is how these "new technologies" are affecting us. Who we are, how we relate to other people, and who people really are offline as opposed to online. Identity, transparency, persona, these are just a few of the concepts that will be explored.
Release Date: 4 months after funding goal. (August 2012)
Length: 70 min. to TBD
Format: Film will be released in 720 HD.
Distribution: YouTube or alternative public website.
Locations: New York, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, London,
The film will be composed of numerous visual elements including archival footage, new interviews, animation, puppetry, stand - up, subliminal inserts, linguistics, text, stand-up and other multi-media elements. Like all of Loren's work it will be unique, have a point of view while hopefully forcing you to connect dots that form the story. Think "The Wall" meets "Tree Of Life" meets "The King of Comedy" meets "The Muppets" type vibe.
