« This is not about you... anymore. »
The struggling in the cities is now an evidence. Where, before, you were a part of a bigger team, working along with others to make something new, something great, now you're just stuck between two pieces of some people you don't know, who don't know you... who don't care about you anymore too.
« This is about me. »
Look at this lonely man over here. He dose have many friends you know ? 738 exactly. Facebook is the new hype to get friends. Does he even know them ? Do they ever met ? No, but who cares ?
« Who I am, you ask yourself... »
Or see this girl. She's sending a SMS to her beloved one. Not her boyfriend, but the one she's cheating him with. She found him on a special website about infidelity. She doesn't even know she's followed by a mad man with a knife, who found her very pretty...
« I am... the City. »
This is what this documentary is about. The new tie between people is not people, but Technology.
This documentary will show us in real time what this New Age is about. You see these 8 people on their phones ? If you were a Satellite, how could you make them stop, and start talking to each other ? How could you connect them in a way that they could be forced to look at their neighboors in the eyes ?
With "Alone", show the world what living in a modern society is. And find a way to change that, for the better...
You are the City infrastructure. You are the antennas which display internet/phone conversations/etc, you can also be the wires, the security cameras, the public lights, all of the thing who make us connected and unaware of others.
It can be set up in any city we want, even in a fictitious one, it's not a problem. I would imagine a city like New York rather than Paris or Brussels.
You can choose to connect two people by forcing a communication between them, choose to jeopardize the whole phone system in, like, a bus, so that people can start talking to each other, first by complaining about the crappy network, etc. You'll gain points by making people start talking with real humans beings, or lose points by making them angry and more self-centered.
Choosing which thing you want to be ( Electricity wires, Antennas, Sirens etc ) in which areas, at which time. A whole day ( 24 hours ) would be made in 6 minutes in real life, and you'll have like a week ( 42 minutes, which is enormous ) to gain a certain amount of points.
What Am I Looking for
I would gladly search for an author, a game developer, and... basically everything except for a designer.
I'm open to any idea
Thanks for reading !
