Pause Fest 2019 Title Sequence

Pause Fest 2019 Title Sequence

’A New Hope' is a challenging metaphor for everyone affected by the tech age that still considers some developments today as normal in our culture, traditions and society. We are not programmed to foresee what the exponential technology can do to our society. How much are we going to pay for all bad decisions that we are making today? ‘A New Hope’ digs deep into our worst nightmares and what could happen if we loose control over those exponential tech advances. It also depicts how popularity mixed with power can transform the society into unpleasant and dangerous place. We have a hope that our collective consciousness will drive us to a much safer, happier, inclusive and prosperous place.
