In today's blog I am going to be talking about my idea. I wanted to do something different. I want to have a more of involvement within my films. The idea of a social experiment was introduced to me. Social experiments are a bit different than documentaries but cinematically they involve the same premises.
I first had to think of a problem in current day society. I chose the problem of racism. I know everyone is aware of racism, but it is more prevalent than many think. I wanted to use my cinematic skill to display a public experiment to showcase how prevalent racism is in current society.
My idea is to hire four different actors. These actors will all be different races. These actors will be all placed in public in the exact same scenario. The scenario will be the actor holding a homeless sign and asking for food. I will capture with the camera the different reactions each actor gets. After I will conduct a sit down interview with the actors and possibly some good Samaritans who helped any individual out. \
