No Internet Week

A documentary about addiction. Addiction of the digital kind.

A film team deprived five ‘digital natives’ of their narcotic of choice for five days and recording the consequences. Will the outcome be positive? Or did it drive our subjects to distraction?

Under the watchful eye of Psychotherapist Sarah Hirigoyen BSc (Hons), MaA, Adv. Dip, UKCP reg. the five participants had all access to the internet restricted for the whole of Internet Week. Their smarthpones we’re replaced by old school ‘brick’ phones; every password from their social media and internet lives was taken away.

The five participants were:

James Brown, media legend and Editor, Sabotage Times @jamesjamesbrown
Emily Hare, Managing Editor, Contagious @em2345
Katie MacKay, Advertising Executive and founder of www.whatkatiewore.com @whatkatiewore
Maria Pizzeria, fashion blogger and social media ‘freak’ @mariapizzeria
Sophie, a teenager (she’s 13)
