Blame the Media for the Apocalypse?
The media is blamed for a lot of things and in some cases, the end of the world.
That's the topic for this short film, which, according to the description, "asks the question which consequences could be caused by information and news."
With regard to the financial crisis, the metaphor is a kind of an exaggerated persiflage: only the message of the apocalypse causes the end of the world – a self-fulfilling prophecy caused by the media!
The layout of the newspaper changes during the film parallel to the dramatic of the story.
The first reaction releases a visual chaos which develops while the film continues. An information flood takes the audience by surprise. Letters, words, graphics, illustrations, photo collage – the whole design collapses like an avalanche and is getting rebuild in the form of the comet, which is made of terms and graphical material.
So, is the media to blame?
