Propaganda in the 21st Century: THE CLOUDS OVER SIDRA VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE
Immersive and emotionally manipulative experiences will shape and mold human perception and behavior. Powerful and emotional and immersive naratives will sculpt a contrived and very controlled new world order of world wide human consciousness.
"Clouds Over Sidra is a 2015 virtual reality film about the Syrian refugee crisis. The movie was created by Gabo Arora and Chris Milk in partnership with the United Nations and Samsung. The film features a twelve year old in the Za'atari camp in Jordan, home to 84,000 Syrian refugees. It follows her throughout the day from her family's tent, to school, to a bakery, to a computer lab and the camp football pitch."
"It is the first film shot in virtual reality for the United Nations."
"The film was directed by Gabo Arora and Barry Pousman and co-Produced by Samantha Storr, Socrates Kakoulides, Christopher Fabian and Katherine Keating."
"It was first shown at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2015"
"The Cutting EDGE: New Virtual Training Prepares First Responders for Active Shooter Incidents"
AUGUST 3, 2017
"STRATEGY & POLICY, USER TESTING & RESEARCH, UX, VIDEO"
"Amidst the chaos of an active shooter event, preparedness is key to a seamless, swift and effective response—and a new video game funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory just might do the trick. Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment, or EDGE, is a virtual training platform, available now to all response agencies nationwide. Built on the Unreal Engine, it allows responders of all disciplines to assume discipline-based avatars and simultaneously role-play complex response scenarios."
The Black - Grey - White Spectrum of Lies and Tax Funded Deception:
"Black propaganda is false information and material that purports to be from a source on one side of a conflict, but is actually from the opposing side. It is typically used to vilify, embarrass, or misrepresent the enemy. Black propaganda contrasts with grey propaganda, the source of which is not identified, and white propaganda, in which the real source is declared and usually more accurate information is given, albeit slanted, distorted and omissive. Black propaganda is covert in nature in that its aims, identity, significance, and sources are hidden."
"The major characteristic of black propaganda is that the people are not aware that someone is influencing them, and do not feel that they are being pushed in a certain direction."
"Black propaganda purports to emanate from a source other than the true source. This type of propaganda is associated with covert psychological operations. Sometimes the source is concealed or credited to a false authority and spreads lies, fabrications, and deceptions. Black propaganda is the "big lie", including all types of creative deceit. Black propaganda relies on the willingness of the receiver to accept the credibility of the source. If the creators or senders of the black propaganda message do not adequately understand their intended audience, the message may be misunderstood, seem suspicious, or fail altogether."
"Governments conduct black propaganda for reasons that include: A) by disguising their direct involvement a government may be more likely to succeed in convincing an otherwise unbelieving target audience, and B) there are diplomatic reasons behind the use of black propaganda. Black propaganda is necessary to obfuscate a government's involvement in activities that may be detrimental to its ... policies."
