When I was in film school a lifetime ago, we made 5 minute shorts from Super 8 film. It was insanely expensive, the lighting was generally as bad as the acting, synchronizing audio was near-impossible, and "special effects" were achieved by scratching film emulsion with a sewing needle. The internet was in its infancy and only accessible by a small, privileged minority. It was a world free of mobile phones, apps and social networking. We walked 10 miles uphill in a blizzard to get to school. We tied an onion to our belts, which was the style at the time.

Student films have come a long way, baby. If you have seven and half minutes to be dazzled, check out this fantastic futuristic short by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo from the Bezaleal Academy of Arts in Jerusalem.

What do you think? Conveniently cool or just plain creepy?

I think it is pretty cool, and I could certainly use some pop-up pointers in my life!
