Based on extensive research and findings from workshops with children aged 12 and older and accompanied by media educator Sandra Lichtenberg, Martha Kröger and Claudia Rippe developed the theater project SOCIAL. An analog critical examination of the influences of digital social media that are omnipresent in our lives.

The goal was to visualize a trailer for the still unfinished theater piece for further project development and promotion. The biggest challenge was to develop as fast as possible a standalone cinematic trailer based on existing visions, before the actual theater piece was even fully conceived. Brian Karp from Magmastudio helped to shoot the film for the trailer in just one afternoon. Together with the clients, Magmastudio developed a narrative and edited the footage into a working trailer.

“The teenage Wiki sets out into the sea of the digital world, wanting to find her place, try out and do good. She meets Algorithma - the woman-turned-algorithm - and finds herself in endless feeds of likes and comments. Wiki swims as an icon on the wave of a high outreach and is abruptly sucked into a whirlpool of hate comments. What will remain of Wiki when social media flushes her out again?" (Text Claudia Rippe, Martha Kröger)
