Total Investigation Television

My latest script and film, Total Investigation Television. It was inspired by the currently very trendy social experiment films, which have flooded YouTube and social media. These films claim to be raising awareness about moral causes, but in reality are treating people like laboratory rats, forcing them into manufactured situations that are both dangerous and stressful. I’ve seen examples where assaults are instigated, the disadvantaged are manipulated and judged from a position of privilege, and children are put in extreme danger (a crime for which those responsible should be prosecuted for child endangerment). The filmmakers’ true intention – to scam the public to make their videos go viral, promote their companies and sell merchandise – seems to have gone unnoticed. I hope this film will draw attention to the hypocrisy of their amoral acts.

Synopsis 

Jay is desperate to make a successful social experiment film that questions people’s morality, but his desire for success throws his own morality into question.

Additional: Since my original post, Total Investigation Television has been nominated for best Short Fiction at Cardiff Mini Film Festival 2016 and received a glowing review from Outpost 31.crestblackfiction2016
