We’ve Got Some Very, Very Bad News!

Bad News is a remarkable animated short film created by Bastian Böhm and Nico Uthe.  The film has been named to the Guggenheim Museum’s shortlist for its YouTube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video contest, which has generated some 23,000 submissions since it began in June.

The viewer is confronted by headlines proclaiming the end of the world, reports of terrible financial crises and fears of an impending apocalypse.  Bad News presents the viewer with a question about what kinds of consequences could be caused by sensational news reports, to what extent does mass-media become a form of catastrophic self-fulfilling prophecy.
