Jim Swill‘s latest documentary examines society’s use of technology with a particular focus on Southern Televangelists and the Selfie Culture. As always, he shoots his films on Smart phones, this latest one was shot on a shattered iPhone4. Swill made No Dogs No Masters while traveling around the United States and filmed, scored, wrote, and narrated the entire piece.
I make these films on Smart phones, this time a shattered iPhone4 while traveling the United States. This one in particular focuses on Southern Televangelists and Selfie Culture, while I was migrating out to live in Los Angeles California. There are a lot of themes relating to the municipal constructs that surround a more basic way of living, cleaning up after the messy thoughts, and the lack of interest in our own impending decay of sorts; like how technology advances around us at this rapid rate while morally we remain very much the same and things socially are still simplistic and grittier yet we’re holding this preview into a technologically saturated future.
