"Póneme Love care" is a visual constant sound in each of the videos that gave students from different universities in the country to contest TecnoTelevisión, which in its first version proposed the theme of technology and asked participants how their everyday use or abuse affects, positively or negatively, to society. Since its subjectivity filmmakers express university Barranquilla, Medellin, Cali and Bogota expressed through video form the phrase "Love póneme care."
This phrase becomes slogan in each of the actions and images presented. the presence of the other is claimed because, as seen in the videos- inhabit an era characterized by relations display that affect social relations and change the way of being, thinking and acting with others and with himself.
Styles and looks
From different genres, styles and looks participants make memory and consciousness about how we live and inhabit the mind that -depending visionado- are clearly intended to visually demonstrate how this society is socially disconnected losing the possibility of meeting with the other so necessary for the attainment of happiness.
The message of the university is crucial when declared with concern how modern man depicted: digitized, isolated and ignored. In the multiple subjectivities and the desire to narrate, the filmmakers shout to the world that the misuse of the tablets, cell phones and other technologies make it grow without the other sees it and sometimes joy or pain of live long pass unnoticed or are simply perceived by screen mediations that make a distant reality.
Also, melodramatic situations and visual metaphors views denounce that "relations" mediated by technology are dangerous relationships and many of them connected with nothing, with the beyond, without any sense. Connections without liability.
Prevailing negative intent
Most of what is seen is clearly intended to make a search for a negative message and demonstrate that the misuse we make of technology in our daily life, except for a single delivery, show that this is not being lived with the other, but with the technology object is turned into an object of desire, enjoyment and enjoyment and being with the other in person, produces boredom, laziness and no enjoyment.
More virtual than real
Sound problems, camera and lighting are evident, but the desire to narrate this technically leave aside to worry and focus on what is meant in the 30 productions: This time appears to be more virtual than real. Treatment creativity is valued although subject could explore other approaches, aesthetic and styles to the proposed theme. The young man has in itself -at son of TV and technology- an innate narrative and a style to express themselves audio-visually.
With regard to technical quality, the final products presented credited a good level of sound and visual bill approving emission standards of an open television channel -but as mentioned before- you have to think beyond the images and explore more the sounds produced by the environment and the characteristics of those places and situations such as loneliness music, danger, heartbreak and tedium that produces the relationship with technology.
A look at the art and the concept
Audiovisual narrative manifests the creative use of sound and image. Through innovation formats and styles of narration but could experience more the search for new genres and formats that facilitated the Contest participation parameters are created.
video clips, music, stop motion and reports from which the university approached the reality from the skit fantasized situations beyond, outputs movies, known already received uneventfully. I always like techno-phobic afirmado- university filmmakers from the effects of isolation that produce tablets and phones.
Something is happening
New technologies are now necessary tools for information and training of people, their use fosters participation, debate, processing and generating a participatory and inclusive citizenship, but this is not recorded in the videos.
The TecnoTelevisión Competition in the framework of competition that will be held in July and August in Bogotá (Corferias) - becomes an opportunity to reflect on the use and benefits offered by technology to our quality of life, our daily lives and therefore our well-being and progress. At the same time, it enables reflection on the use and appropriation that can be given to technology innovation and social benefits, to education, to start new businesses, to improve our quality of life and the relationship with others.
