This Short Film Takes Place Entirely on a Computer Screen (NSFW)

We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet... The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical environment.

So begins an essay by Piotr Czerski describing the web not as an extension of life, but an integral part of it. Those of us who remember the world before the web cannot fully understand what it must be like to use the web in such a manner. Because Czerski's generation has never known life without the web, they think of it in different terms, and it's that perpsective that will truly move the web forward, since it's not shackled to the remnants of a bygone era.

So, what is it like to grow up on the web? A new short film explores that question through the lens of a teenage boy. This 17-minute film takes place entirely on a computer screen. Through the lens of the protagonist, viewers get a sense of the screen not as an intruder, but as a layer of reality.

The film, titled Noah, is the brainchild of Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg. Note that there are brief NSFW moments.
