  • A couple tries to bring romance and technology into their marriage, only to end up questioning each other's perception of reality.
    Double Vision is used with permission from Ft. Langley. Learn more at
    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.

    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.

    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!

    This saddens me. It reinforced how people really want you. What they want to see is not the real you... but the YOU that they want...
    Whether it's fictional or not, it really hits home.
    Well-made story. Concept is fresh.
    Good job team!

      We are driven by all kinds of needs: biological, emotional, social and intellectual. I think, that the only people, with whom you can really be close are those, who see themselves, as they really are and consequently want to see you, as you really are.

    Only the beautiful people would be troubled by technology which levels the playing field, people who won the genetic lottery and have skated through life on easy mode because of their good looks. Only a person's personality would matter when you can make everyone look like a 10/10, and the beautiful people are always the ugliest ones inside.

      +Words of CheresieWomen are taught to like their "make-up" and only deciding to abandon it through their own will, will give them integrity. But the biological drive of most women is very strong, as well as the need for social acceptance, so most won't buck the system. "Is that bad ?" Is that sad ? Is that important ?

    • Words of Cheresie
      Words of Cheresie День назад

      +Carlos Idelone As I noted before, makeup has been used for many thousands of years. Some cultures do ban it but I can't think of too many. I know that fundamentalist Muslims ban it as did the Nazis. I would guess that some other religious cultures such as the Amish and the Mennonites ban it. I personally don't have a problem with it but if it were banned, I would not care that much. I find overly beautiful women to be a distraction, so I am not all that fond of makeup, but I also know that when cultures get too restrictive, people tend to rebel. Conclusion: women like their makeup and I am not going to tell them that they can't have it.

    • Carlos Idelone

      ​+Words of Cheresie I was thinking about "make-up", when I made my last comment to you, but I refrained from saying it, afraid, that I would be being too strict for most people. One can disguise him/herself anyway they please. Your question was, "Is that bad?". You seem to be saying, that because "everyone" does it, that that makes it OK. It's legal, it's generally accepted, but is it good for your soul ?

    • Words of Cheresie
      Words of Cheresie День назад

      +Carlos Idelone Perhaps there is a bit of deception, but it is going on today all the time. How many men and women dye their hair? How many women wear padded bras? How many women have had breast augmentation surgery? I would even go so far as saying the technology in the movie is just a new technology version of makeup and makeup has been used for thousands of years. Are the couple in this video deceiving each other? I don't think that they are. Also please note that the wife at the end when she looks old still has dark hair without any grey meaning that her hair is dyed and any adult will know that her hair is dyed so there is no deception on her part. It is more a willing suspension of disbelief. You know that she is old and her hair is grey, but the dark hair still makes her look younger and it is accepted by most people. I will add that some fundamentalist Muslims are against hair dye, so to them it would be deception.

      +Words of Cheresie You seem to be leaving out the element of deception, that this film exposes. If you can prolong your life medically, you are still yourself and will have actual consequences to deal with regarding your medical health. This film purports creating an illusion of who you are, which is akin to wearing a mask. I don't know that wearing a mask to deceive others will improve your sense of self-worth in the long run.

      Yeah, I kind of had a feeling - that the contact lenses allow the spouse to see what he/she wants to see, not reality. Particularly when their daughter calls and speaks in an adult voice.

    I cannot believe there are so many people that do not understand what happened. These are futuristic lenses that allows you to see yourself and others as you would like to see them, even if it is not real. When you take out the lenses, you see the truth for what it is. In many ways, the lenses are like the blue pill in the matrix. You take the blue pill and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill (take the lenses off) and you see the reality.
