Copywriter Jon Murray’s new take on dystopia – mobile handsets take over from relationships

Why is it that everyone you see is staring at a handset – whether they’re walking the streets, on a bus or a train? Is the end of the world nigh? Or are they just depressed by the weather and don’t want to look up?

None of the above of course, it’s life in Mobile Land.

Freelance copywriter Jon Murray, who toiled most recently at Leo Burnett Toronto, has written and directed this funny and apposite little film speculating about what these devices are doing to our relationships.
