New Movie Shot Entirely With Surveillance Cameras

According to a recent Newsweek story, there are 30 million surveillance cameras in the United States. That’s about 1 camera for every 10 Americans.

Next month, an interesting new movie called Look will be released that is filmed entirely with surveillance cameras. From the Newsweek story:

Shot entirely through the point of view of security cameras (and co-produced by Barry Schuler, the former head of AOL), the film is executed in the style of actual spy-cam footage strung together but is actually a fictional tale aimed at giving viewers a glimpse of just how public our private lives have become. Its characters run the gamut: a high-school English teacher who has an affair with an underage student, a gas station clerk with high hopes for a musical career, a department store manager who uses his warehouse as a secret sex refuge. Yet all are connected by surveillance footage that, in the end, holds the key to their survival—or demise. The film took home the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Cine Vegas Film Festival and will debut in New York and Los Angeles in December.

The movie’s website is here.

    I’d like to point you to another movie, shot entirely through (real!) surveillance cameras in London, UK. Watch the trailer here: http://www.vimeo.com/307940

    The footage was claimed by the film’s director from the operators of the surveillance cameras, who – according to UK law – have to provide you with the tapes if you are on them. And for privacy reasons they have to black out other people on the tapes, so the movie’s title is “Faceless”. More on the movie here:
