Conspiracy theory, that keyword that has somehow entered our everyday lexicon, is a term often used to compartmentalise any narrative that can’t be filed under consensus. From a lizard alien super race, to political and scientific discourse, why has this banner become a catch all garbage can for anything we find difficult to confront, explain, or investigate?
How do we really benefit from such one size fits all terminology and have we really got to a point, where reality and fact have become so entangled in fantasy and fiction?
“Tin Foiled” will be a short documentary in the Para/Dox strand, launching 2022….to stay up to date with announcements, please either subscribe to the blog, or you can follow Chill Factor Films on Instagram.
This parody corporate promo, is inspired by the numerous articles that have saturated the web, on the coming future of A.I and it’s impact on the masses. It’s a slightly tongue in cheek poke at the thought process behind utopian visions, such as The Great Reset, which in reality are nothing short of dystopian nightmares, only being of benefit to the few.
A common theme running through Sci Fi lore, is one where AI and machine learning overtake humanity and only lead to negative outcomes. But what if things could be switched around and we could find a way to harness this technology and leave it in charge? Could we use it to make the world a better place? Possibly, but if something like A.I CEO was to emerge, then expect it to be met by a lot of resistance.
Perhaps if there is a message within this, it would be very clearly aimed at those in positions of power…. be careful what you wish for.
Produced as an intro to the Para/Dox series of docs and shorts, starting this winter.
