My central concept in this project is: What Has New Media Changed?
Has it changed us, or are we still the same people we always have been?
As a result of this concept, I’ve started with a rough idea that’s pretty simplistic: show how media has grown, but the ideas and the people have not. Hence the shootout scenes, one from a Western and one from an Anime.
With that said, here’s the rough first ~27 seconds of the project. I’ll be editing the transitions along the way.
Footage and sounds used come from: Akira, Ghost in the Shell, The Good the Bad and The Ugly, and M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”
And so I don’t seem like a psychopath, I don’t plan to have a full video of people shooting each other.
