The story of the plastic bag
Here is a unique piece of video making - a mockumentary I found on Youtube, after I was viewing the Plastic State of Mind video which is well worth a visit. Who would have thought that watching the passage of a plastic bag for four minutes could be so mesmerising, and captivating. The movement of the plastic bag and the ironic commentary brings us back to the cycle of life and that everything - good and bad plays a part in that, but it is done in a clever - dreamy, non-judgemental way to draw out a sub-conscious response from the viewer. The final images are particularly shocking and would resonate with our sub-conscious and ultimately serve to draw out a reaction in our audience.
Weebly is gglitching, it is very late so I will keep this post extremely short. Till tomorrow or the next time the glitchiness has been sorted out.

Quite amazing how interesting a video can be with such a simple topic. There should be more videos done with music and comedy fueling the message.

Film seems to be a powerful medium, it would be good to wake up some influencing movie makers in the industry and have more quality footage at our entertainment venues for the public to view.

Thanks for these comments. Always much appreciated. Actually I forgot to add on this post, that flash mobs are an amazing phenomenal which is a combination of performance - singing and dancing raising environmental awareness about issues such as plastic bags use with eco rap and standard singing.
