My topic for the DTC 101 documentary I was thinking about doing how individuals use technology so often that they are not experiencing the real life situation to it’s fullest. Many people film their experiences and are behind the camera and so absorbed in the capturing of the moment that they are detached from the real experience.
I was thinking about interviewing a few students whom use go pros or snapchat to capture many of their experiences in their life. I want to examine if this really does take them away from the experience.
My second idea that I started looking at was cyber bullying. This is a huge topic in the internet world but one that has not really been addressed by the election. In our generation, technology is so prevelent that young people hide behind a computer screen and harsh others using the internet.
