How lucky are we to have the world at our finger tips with the internet giving us Everything we need from box sets to banana bread, Zumba to zoom partys and everything in between.

6 feet apart – original song

Hi my name’s Emma. This is a song I wrote about how the internet has helped us stay connected during the pandemic, and just wanting things to go back to normal. Hope you enjoy it 💖💖
(Also don’t judge my guitar skills, I’m not the best 😂)

A little lost, a lot gained

I wrote this story as a means to explain in a short and concise way the social issues we face as a society. From teenagers suffering with eating disorders, self esteem and a hoard of other issues to children addicted to gaming. Teenagers separating themselves from the family cause they want to be on their phone. These are real issues. In this video I show what a little break from the internet can really do.
We should try to live our lives with reduced internet, it’s better for us as humans not just mentally but physically as well.
Like my father says too much of a good thing makes it a bad thing.
Hope you enjoy

The Secret Art Of Train Conversations

Based on true circumstances, the film features the plot of a young man, played by Mikhail Sedyshev, being driven to meet his sweetheart due to the sudden world wide failure of telecommunications. As he takes his seat on the train, he is met with the entertained look of the archetypal adult, played by Tytus Kopera. In this world absent of telecommunications, the idea behind the oddly coloured sky is to highlight how deeply rooted the internet is in our society. A world without the internet is utterly bizarre , therefore there must be something to reflect the outlandish nature of this world. The original soundtrack, composed by Mikhail Sedyshev, was made to further drive the abnormal concept of a world without the internet. The soundtrack features synths, droning ambience, cyberpunk vibes and a happysad, almost Waititi-like piano at the the end, to signify the thematic shifts throughout the film. Perhaps, for some, the world without an internet wouldn’t be a bad thing.

A Lie Shrouded in Truth.

‘A Lie Shrouded in Truth’ is a short film that I made for this competition. It includes what I feel is the most untrustworthy thing on the internet at the moment; Manipulated Content. I give a brief description of why I feel this is the biggest issue. And what we can do to help minimalize it on the web.

If we all work together we can make sure that false media is no longer spread on the internet. In an information age, the truth is what should be valued among all things online.

I hope you enjoyed the video, please rate and comment 🙂

Thank you

Don’t let them get to you!

My entry has two meanings. When I say “don’t let them get to you” I mean this physically and mentally. I mean it physically as in don’t let them actually track you down and mentally as in don’t let their words get to you and hurt you. When I refer to “them” in the picture I mean the cyber bullies.

Private Password

My poster design is telling everyone how important it is to keep your password private. If you keep it private it stops strangers accessing you personal stuff. Always check settings are on private.

By Joe Holmes

It’s not always who you think it is.

When I first started using the likes of Snapchat and Facebook, there where a few times when I was added as a friend or contacted through an internet message by someone I had never met before. At first I didn’t think it was anything serious as lots of my friends where friends with people they hadn’t met before.

After I gained more knowledge and experience about using the internet I realised that if I had responded to these I could have put myself in an uncomfortable or even dangerous situation. With this poster I just wanted to advise those who are new to the internet that you or your children may not really know who is on the other side of the screen and that its a terrible idea to share personal information to strangers.
