Short Film Is A Terrifying Insight Into What Our Future Could Look Like
| Last updated
If you fancy being seriously creeped out at what the future could look like for all of us, you need to watch this video.
Made by Keiichi Matsuda, the film (named Hyper-Reality) follows the life of Juliana. It's all in first person, so you get to see what the future is like. Advertisements are everywhere, however for one brief period you get to see what it really looks like. It's strange, the video is only six minutes long, but you quickly get familiarised with the bright, colourful landscape.
The main character seems to be getting a little fed up with her life, she's a personal shopper despite the fact she wants to be a teacher.
Halfway through, it gets a little weird as it seems that she's being subjected to some kind of hacking attack.
The project's costs were raised on Kickstarter back in 2013.
I'll let you see how it ends, but I'm scared.
I need a pizza and a hug.
