If you spent as much of your youth reading too much into MSN statuses and deciding what your Hotmail username represented you as a person (or just made you look that bit more mysterious) then this film is for you. Strangely, I actually don’t think this short film will appeal to anyone who wasn’t a teenager in the age of social media as the angst, panic and sheer helplessness just won’t be as palpable.
Noah is a 17 minute long short film created by Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg for the Toronto International Film Festival. Filmed exclusively from the point of view of a teenage boy online, we follow him as his real social life crumbles as a result of reading too much into social media. One of the most extraordinary things about the film is how Noah simultaneously texts on his iPhone, chats on Facebook, Skypes his girlfriend and watches YouPorn. This is the dark truth of multitasking in the modern age, and it completely gives me the creeps. Anyone who uses the internet, so everyone, must watch this film.
