The documentary Last Hijack, produced by Submarine Channel and directed by Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta, doesn’t just deal with these issues but makes them one of the film’s greatest strengths."

I like this piece because it pulls together a number of areas that interest me.

 

First, this is someone doing something without a big budget and receiving international acclaim. That someone is young. It is relevant to the environment. And it includes my thoughts on new opportunities for youth for employment alternatives.

Hollow is a digital documentary that lives through its protagonists and it is full of good ideas - even though the design and UX are not as tight as, let's say Pinepoint.

 

It includes some nice features and in this article, the creators come back on the production production, both from a writing and designing standpoints. Good read
