  • - These two forms of technology had an impact on what is the narrative of the film. This impact came from it providing uswith the ability to contact the parents of Kobi and Jack which is a necessity in order to gain permission to film them as theyare only 11 years old.When contacting Antony for the permission of Kobi hotmail was used, which turned out to be extremelyefficient speeding up the whole filming process.- After contacting Antony he gave us the number of Jack’s mother (Samantha) after deciding that his personality was the idealfit for our film along side Kobi. When contacting Samantha we alternatively used I message as we became informed on itsefficiency and due to the fact it is a more direct way of addressing people.
