    A couple is trying to spice up and revitalize their marriage, using technology to role play and bring new energy in their relationship. Using an advanced version of augmented reality, they take on new roles in the hopes of enlivening their long-term partnership.
    But the game takes an unexpected turn as they begin to question one another's perception of reality, their history and even one another. The role playing begins to shine a light on the gaps in their communication and intimacy and forces them to confront the blind spots of the past.
    Filmmaking team Ft. Langley -- William Wilkinson and Oliver P. D. Brooks -- have crafted a small chamber drama in the guise of a sci-fi short. Technology plays a key role in the drama, but the subtle but effective special effects are in service of a searching emotional dilemma for the couple at the center of "Double Vision."
    The AR might allow the couple to see one another the way they wish to be seen -- and avoiding their present-day physical realities -- but it also means they can dodge the uncomfortable buried resentments that have caused their marriage to congeal and stagnate in the first place. Anchored by solid storytelling and performances and enhanced with crisp, clean cinematography, the story is an emotionally astute, lucid exploration of how technology impacts our inner lives, shaping our identities and relationships.
    "Double Vision" keeps its science on a raw, intimate scale, resulting in a film that's a discerning portrait of the intersection between cutting-edge technology and human yearning. We think we're getting closer to what we want with each new advance -- but getting what we desire may actually force us into terrain that challenges us in ways we may not be ready for.

    I didn't really like this video, but I did see why I should've liked it. Lol. People don't like reality because it's not always beautiful. We want to see the world, others, and ourselves how we want to be seen. We don't want to face aging because we aren't beautiful anymore. We don't want others to see us as less than perfect. We all want to feel and experience the passion, love and life to make us feel ALIVE...again. When we get old we slowly lose our dignity because we lose our self identity. We're no longer desirable and attractive. We have to accept less from life because we don't have a choice. We are old. We are dying. And there is NOTHING we can do about it. I didn't like this video because I don't want to be reminded of what I've lost by getting old. It really sucks.

    Like anything else, a crutch is a crutch. You cannot run from reality. In life, there is no escape. In the end we all pass away and the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep. If you do not like and except who you are you will not be happy. You have to want to be happy. And a million dollars. Love myself and a million dollars. just love..and this remote control. Love myself, a million dollars, this remote control and that's it! And i don't need anything else! Love myself, a million dollars, the remote control...well i need this chair! Love myself, million dollars, remote control and this chair! Well, i need my dog (grurrr!) Well, i don.t need my dog! Love myself, million dollars, remote control and this chair! And that's all that i need! Navin R Johnson. (not that jerk that invented the opti grab, that's for sure!)

    Ohhhhhh so the first scene with the blonde was the time he had an affair? Cause the blonde was suprised at his age... Or was the roleplay that they would pretend to "meet" for first time in bar?

    "It's a still life watercolor, of a now late afternoon, the sun shines through the curtain lace, and shadows wash the room." The dangling conversation by Paul Simon is complemented by this film.

    THe description contains a direct contradiction. One paragraph says it forces them to confront the blind spots of the past. Aother paragraph says can dodge the uncomfortable buried resentments that have caused their marriage to congeal and stagnate in the first place.

      Yes indeed. My wife and I share children, and now a lovely grandson, and 36 years of love, teamwork, friendship and memories. I don't care that she is no longer the shapely young woman I married, and I know she doesn't care about me slowing down and losing my hair.

    We will have youth stabilizing medication they are already getting there now. And then there are plants that do the same thing but without any side effects and with only healing effects. But that information is omitted due to the fact that they can not patent plants.

    A married couple confronted with their reality that they try to escape during the day with highly advances contact lenses. Fear of aging. Relationship issues. But why does the "Alexa" thing not work? Must be a joke I don't understand.
    A very interesting story. I actually believed that the blond was his ex-wife who died or sth, but the 5 years ago cheating thing might make more sense.

      A metaphor for the lenses that don't bring solutions but more problems into their marriage

    I thought there gonna be another level of twist, like, at the end, we saw the photo of the couple when they still young, but turns out the young guy doesn't looks like that (so the woman lie when she says she looks him as he is)
    But, that maybe too many twists.
    Awesome short movie!

      Fantasy. The whole marriage he's been with a brown-eyed brunette. So he fantasizes about a blonde with blue-eyes.. not really about beauty as much as it about a change in "scenery".
