xoxosms

Filed under: media,Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:42 am

These days, the stories we hear about kidz and the technology are often cautionary tales: strangers! sexting! TEXT NECK! But Nancy Schwartzman — producer and director of the in-the-works film xoxosms — wants to tell a different, more salutary tale:  about  (young) people forging relationships that may start as virtual, but are very, very real.

“xoxosms is about first love, long distance and Skype. It looks closely at one young couple who — like many — met online and fell in love before ever meeting each other,” says Schwartzman. “There’s a tension between their ‘digital intimacy’ and real life, and the film explores the way the digital world, full of intimacy, bonding, sweetness, is a way to mitigate the hard stuff of growing up and having sex. A way to be close without things getting too confusing.”

The documentary tells the true love story of Gus and Jiyun — a home schooled 19-year-old from a religious family in small-town Illinois and a 19-year-old Korea-born New York City art student — who met nearly a year ago in possibly the only place two people so different might ever find each other: The Internet. Over the past 18 months, they have built an intensely intimate world via Skype, AIM and iChat. They are each other’s very first loves, and through the Internet, they have established a connection that feels as real as if they were right there beside each other.

Help xoxosms have a happy ending! You can kick in a few bucks here to help Schwartzman & co. complete their project. (They’re already over halfway there, with 19 days to go!) You can share your story at their Tumblr, “Without the Internet We Never Would Have Met.” And you can watch the trailer, oh, right now!

  5. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  15. The interesting facts in and around my personal experience go back to before August, 2008. Bring a Frisbee or a football for when you stop at a park. He also set a Rucker Park single game scoring record with 82 points. The value of the turf footwear would be to shield the foot from the pressure of running for a lengthy distance. These ingredients can could include extract of algae, which it is postulated can assist in the dissolution of fat and the revving up of one’s metabolic process; extract of green tea, which it is claimed helps in getting rid of cellulite by working in conjunction with extract of algae to increase the fat burning effect as well as the increase in metabolism; and finally, Retinol A, which is derived from vitamin A and is a supplement that is employed by the body to construct and repair connective tissue as well as skin cells. No need to perform internet searches or even find people in your area available for practicing.Yet if you don’t discover special one this time around, perfectly, get back in place, dust particles your knees off and do it again.Endermologie Deep massage is believed by many to be an effective treatment for cellulite.A fly rod works differently that other rods and reels. In a belated ripple, as I spoke with my partner on the phone, I begin to see the same trends, on a comparatively diminished scale, begin to manifest themselves here in Seattle.
