Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture

Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture” (2011) – Everywhere we go we are surrounded by screens. Have we entered a techno utopia or a virtual prison? Should we be celebrating unreservedly or should we be cautious and skeptical? Is it the greatest leap in productivity or the biggest setback from the things most meaningful in life? Has today’s connectivity drawn us closer to one another or strangely more disjointed? Is our social experience richer and deeper or more shallow and artificial? Is it all of these things or none of them? Discover insightful answers to these questions from media experts, church leaders, and inspiring individuals and families from across the country. Most importantly you’ll discover how God’s word addresses the unique media challenges we face today.

In Summer of 2011, Blue Banner Media had the incredible opportunity of working on “Captivated”, a timely, significant, and provoking documentary feature film about the dangers of a media-driven society. Writer/Producer/Director Phillip Telfer brings his passion and concern on this subject to the film, along with Co-Director Colin Gunn. It’s covers the relevant issues (from consumption to content, etc…) extensively, and interviews highly-credentialed experts in fields ranging from theology to health, psychology to entertainment; as well as providing a look at what families, individuals and other organizations have been doing to avoid media captivity. The film went on to be a finalist for “Best of Festival” at the SAICFF as well as winning runner-up for “Best Documentary.”

Our work on this involved being a Production Assistant while filming in Seattle, WA as well as 2.5D animation work for various motion graphics sequences throughout the documentary.
