Prints available for purchase from BigCartel. Etsy. Society6. StoreEnvy. US$

Social networking is taking over our lives.  It’s inevitable.  Australian director Richard Williamson envisions a future in which social networking has transitioned out of the virtual world and into the physical realm, operating straight out of our brains with a microchip that allows us to send and receive messages by thought alone.

"Status" is a psychologically deep science fiction film that marries Her with The Walking Dead.   It's an impressively well-written short film that steadily builds suspense from beginning to end.
"In the near future social networking has moved out of the virtual world and into the physical. A confronting portrait of a world we may soon know too well. Welcome to the evolution.

2018. The world is changing. Social networking sprawls far beyond desktop computers and iPhones: "Welcome to Statlink."

Live connected 24/7 through microchips inserted directly into your scull and nerves. Ultimate connection is yours. It is only a thought away. Welcome to a new world. Welcome to connection as you have never known. Welcome to the evolution of social networking."
