Video by Dissolve Footage
Once again, the magicians at Dissolve have spun stock footage into gold. Their tongue-in-cheek spin on Internet culture recasts selfies, faves, food porn, cat photos, and other habits of social-media addicts as tools used to "level up" in life. All the usual suspects appear as playable characters: the dad blogger, the epic traveler, the fitness freak, and the scenester. It's a clever reminder that our relationships can't be defined by imaginary points on the Internet.
Entirely with stock footage, Dissolve has also made a mockumentary about emoji, recreated famous movie scenes, and explored the eerie region around Chernobyl.
