Short Film Competition
Watch the winning and commended films in our short film competition
'Digital De-evolution' by Edward Sludden suggests that the real internet revolution will be controlled by a secret, global cabal of simian overlords. They already own 98 percent of our DNA, and it's only a matter of time before they get the rest.
In 'Craving communication' by Tero Hiltunen, two men sit in a room facing each other. Finding this situation both awkward and unusual, they begin to acknowledge each other through facial expressions and body language. They finally realise that they have been struggling to sit in silence, because what humans crave most is the power to communicate.
'Young people and social media' by Dimitra Nikitaki is a trailer based on the relationship between young people and the web from the point of view of an older generation.
Trailer by Paul Carpenter is a one minute trailer for The Virtual Revolution on how the web is changing the world.
Our short film competition ran during the production of The Virtual Revolution to see who could produce the best short film or trailer, using footage downloaded from our site.
We had a range of creative, entertaining and sometimes bizarre entries. 12 were shortlisted by the Virtual Revolution production team, and these were then judged by BBC Factual Executive Producers Nick Mirsky and Dominic Crossley-Holland, and BBC Multiplatform Executive Producer Julian Phillips.
Coming soon - our experiment that asks what impact the web is having on our brains.
