New short film showcases the fun and utility of Google Glass while sounding an alarm about the dangers of putting too much faith in technology.

Perche' No? Productions today released the world's first narrative live-action short film shot with Google Glass. The movie titled, 20/20, is scheduled to appear in a number of upcoming film festivals and is currently hosted on YouTube here:

In the film, a young man breezes through his day enjoying the benefits of Google Glass without any awareness of the true cost of blind faith in his new toy, revealing a disturbing yet all-too-believable glimpse of the future. Events in the film were inspired by the rising tide of pundits extolling the virtue of "wearable technology." The film attempts to demonstrate how technology can transform our lives, in ways both thrilling and terrifying.

The film was shot in Seattle, Washington in the fall of 2013 using the built-in capabilities of Google Glass. In the production, the actor playing the protagonist wore Google Glass during principal photography. Images were recorded and monitored in real time using an iPhone, then downloaded to a hard drive for traditional post production.

Perche' No? Productions is a producer of independent films located in Seattle, Washington. Questions regarding distribution or presentation of 20/20 should be directed to the company at info(at)perchenofilms(dot)com.
