Tech News Network - "Your Trusted Source in Tech"
Tech News Network is a technology news satire concept to be piloted as a web series. The mission is to offer compelling views on the biases of tech development and question the agendas of tech companies by stretching the reality (by just a bit). Tech News Network will challenge viewers' media literacy and understanding of the limits and risks of modern technology. The pilot production will consist of three independent news stories.
Tech News Network is a Finnish/US indie short film. The principal photography was carried out in Los Angeles in July 2019. The final product is in two different formats: 1) 9 minute short film distributed to international festival circuit, 2) three 2-3 minute fake news videos distributed as a web series.
