Emic Short Film

"What do you like about living on Earth?" Google Play has just premiered a short 10-minute documentary called EMIC, made in promotion for/and inspired by the sci-fi movie Interstellar and the idea of one day leaving Earth. Google has been working with Paramount on promoting Christopher Nolan's big epic sci-fi movie all along, with virtual websites for screenings during its release last year. Now it's about to hit Blu-ray soon and is out on iTunes now, so Google is putting out its centerpiece video, the final "culmination" of everything they've worked together on. Similar to Life in a Day, it's a doc that explores what life is like on Earth, to create a time capsule-like video to save and take with us when we one day leave Earth. It's actually quite beautifully made from wonderful footage. "This film is intended to go wherever mankind goes next."

Here's a quick trailer for the short, titled Emic from David Brodie & Angus Wall, direct from YouTube:

Full synopsis: "An Interstellar x Google Play collaboration. Building off the themes of Interstellar, this short film weaves submissions from people around the world into a story celebrating the human experience on Earth." Directed by editor David Brodie (The Witness, Survivors), creative directed by Angus Wall (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) and curated by Christopher Nolan, the film "will serve as a time capsule that shows future generations what life on Earth was like, should we leave this planet." Emic is the culmination of a multi-month partnership between Google and Paramount surrounding the film Interstellar designed to help moviegoers connect to the film through immersive experiences. Interstellar is now available on iTunes/Amazon, and soon on on Blu-ray. This was a solid short that does capture the beauty of the world, and reminds of that other YouTube doc Life in a Day.

Nice video when you need warm feelings but as a realist it's not a good representation of life on earth. Life is always a struggle against sickness, aging, death and the many psychopaths who roam the earth.

EMIC IS BUILT UPON A DISEMPOWERING PREMISE. For those who decide to leave earth, goodbye! you are the cause of things not working on earth now, you think earth is going to die and because of your fear you start exploiting it to create an escape plan instead of investing on the harnessing of the potential of the truly complete being and system it really is. Earth is a living being not a dead object, we are part of it´s system. Earth will stay whole forever. Your fear is what is driving the earth to an end in your OWN state of consciousness. Carry on but stop using resources that are generating disruption on the balance of earth. Earth is our home and it is from here that we may evolve into higher beings, explore the universe and so on. The potentials of earth and our bodies outweigh any kind of advanced technology any industrial complex in the galaxy may come up with. Invest your time in awakening earth's power, our human power. If not please pack up and leave, wish you the best! Did not even watch the movie, for me it is just based on a total human dis-empowering premise I am not part of and do not support.
