"The Social Media Generation"
This is an adaptation from the original comic "Marc Maron: The social media generation" by Zen Pencils.
The script used in that comic is a quote from Marc Maron's book "Attempting Normal".
This animation is also available on youtube in HD.
Going nobody really c:
I'm going to be brutally honest with you, this work is just saying "wake up sheeple" in a kind tone that sill retains just a hint of condescending attitude, just a hint though. While phone addiction is a problem, it's not an issue that everyone suffers from, and I do believe that comparison to the crack addict has something to do with the study that shows how a social media junkie's brain looks the same as a crack junkie's brain under an MRI, but then again, nobody really knows what that truly means. After all, social media addiction certainly doesn't have the same direct physiological effects of a cocaine addiction, and the average person who hears about that study probably has no idea as to what to do with an MRI scan. Your point isn't necessarily bad, you just take it too far and present it in a fasion that just says "wake up sheeple!"
Also, is this some kind of a joke, because at the end of the video, you give us a like on Facebook button, a follow on twitter button, and a plus one button for google plus [insert generic and badly thought out joke about google plus's complete lack of people who are on it here (what do you expect, I don't right my own comedy)]
Maybe it was a bit too harsh and presented only from the extreme view, but yes it annoys me that everything seems to be happening on FB, and if you are not a frequent user of FB then you miss a lot of things because all the people who are close to you prefer to share their thoughts mostly on FB.
The message was the preachiest bullshit I've ever heard in my life, but I can't in good conscience give you a bad you a bad rating for the effort that was put into the animation/voice acting.
Honestly you wasted it though, just another person using media to complain about other people using media.
You've got a good start here, but there's so much missing. I like your voice actor and your dialogue. Your art and animation is even pretty good - not perfect, but for the style you're going for I like it the way it is. My biggest issue is that it ends too soon. You talk about only one small segment of what social media has done, when your animation is just opening up for an entire slew of commentaries on the way we live.
You're also only covering one small demographic of people who use social media constantly. To be fair, I don't use Facebook frequently, nor do I bother keeping connecting with people for the most part, but there are a large amount of people already aware at how pointless social media has become.
This needs to be a lot longer.
