App: The Human Story is a documentary film exploring how apps have become a cultural phenomenon. Coming in 2015 from Jake Schumacher and Jedidiah Hurt.
From the filmmakers:
App creation has become the new art form for our generation. This is the story of the cultural phenomenon that touches all our lives.
"... a really cool idea for a documentary. [Apps] are the story of the decade in tech." - John Gruber
"This is a documentary about art. It's also about commerce. It's also about technology... it's everything." - Adam Lisagor
Since the first computer, humanity has been fashioning digital tools to extend our capabilities and augment our reality. Thanks to these digital applications, mankind has has surged forward in understanding of ourselves, the world, and what lies beyond.
With the advances in mobile computing over the past decade, software applications have captured the attention of the globe. Although some apps seem trivial and inconsequential, the details of our software say a lot about who we are as humans. Apps have changed how we live our lives and they will undoubtedly shape our future.
Just as apps have made their way to the world stage, a small community of developers has emerged as modern day artisans. Their obsession over the details of every interaction and pixel has given these unlikely leaders a voice in shaping software in a way that respects what it means to be human.
At its core, App: The Human Story is a vehicle to look at what it means to be human in a world of technology.
We've been working in earnest on the film for about a year. With your support, we will be able to greatly accelerate the process and finish the film by the end of next year.
Join us as we celebrate the launch of the Kickstarter Campaign at the brand new JLOOP studio in Long Beach.
