Bendito Machine III #edcmooc

So the course starts with this video. The Animation World has a creative mind which not everyone understands. At first this video just went through my eyes and I was left wondering what happened in this short film. A short intro on the #edemooc helped me understand this and the comments on this video showed me what was the conclusion.

Basically the Block 1 of the course talks about the difference between Utopias and Dystopias. The above clip concludes as a dystopians point of view where every old technology gets dumped because of the advancement of a new technology and it doesn't take much time for people to adapt to the newer technologies. It shows how the initial technologies were treated as a God just because it looked diferent and was something new to them even when people had no idea what was the purpose of this new stuff was and later people started working out with newer gadgets. Ultimately everything leading to destruction.

  1. Wow, you've manages to put all thst in 2 paragraphs! And I had to write a page to express pretty much the same ideas... What can I say, well done for you! Have you noticed that "bendicto Machine III" theme is developed further in "New Media" film? That's interesting how different film creators think similarly and use pretty much same wisual metaphors to explain their vision of the effect of technolgy on the past, present and future of humans' life, don't you think so?
