Fact or Fiction?

As our award winning online education project ‘Digital Disruption’ moves into the distribution phase, we’ve been testing an early version of our Bogus Conspiracy film: The Vampire Conspiracy to see how audiences react to it. The result has totally exceeded our expectations with the film capturing the imagination of a number of online Bloggers who have embedded it into conspiracy sites and forums throughout the internet. See, for example, the post and discussion about the film here: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread598776/pg1.

It seems that Bloggers have embellished their own theories, curiosity and fear without really checking the film’s credibility at all: reminding us how easy it can be to manipulate people’s perceptions through the media, and how easily misinformation and propaganda can spread and mutate.
