The director of visitors has done it again and took the filming to next level in creating a wordless documentary of modern life. Reggio is famous for making such films and experimenting with the viewers every now and then. This artistic yet silent portrayal of technology and mankind controlling that technology is epic and will keep many interested in the movie without a word uttered throughout the feature.
According to the presenter it will be presented in projections comprising of 4000 pixels as compared to 1000 pixels in HD. The film is based on various shots of people from different ages doing something technology related and especially their faces are focused. On one hand the close-ups of youthful faces will depict the passion in their eyes that are so much involved in watching something on tv or playing a gaming console. While on the other hand the close-ups of the old folks depicts the displeasure in their eyes as they are not that much involved in technology.
The film also includes some shots of the moon that were timely taken and time lapsed into a set of amazing shots. Surprisingly this film involves a lot of editing in almost every frame. From blurring out the screens to burring out the background editing has been massively used. This has made most of the film to be unidentifiable apart from the faces that are focused. The film is presented in two colors that is black and white which according to Reggio is the perfect way to portray the stupor like relationship between man and the technology.
The visitors is an unusual film as one may say among the new releases movies and still nobody can anticipate the viewer comments on this feature however as interesting as the idea may sound this has alarmed a lot directors as it may evolve into a totally new era of still motion filming.

Saving Mr Banks is a feature film about a fictional character in a narrative novel by P.L Travers. Walt Disney made a promise with his daughters that he will make a film on their favorite book which was Mary Poppins; but he didn’t know that he will have to keep this promise for a very long time.
This was all because of the rigid and adamant writer P.L Travers who was not ready to give the rights of book to Walt Disney so that he may make a film on it. Walt did everything he could to convince her but all in vain meanwhile the book sales dropped and so did the savings of P.L Travers who was then forced to contact Walt Disney.
She had to travel to Los Angeles in order to start working with Walt and his creative team. Despite of both Walt and his team being competitive, Travers was not happy with the decision so far and she seemed reluctant to give away the rights as the book was very dear to her.
This is when Walt decided to reveal the story of his childhood to Travers which helped a lot in convincing her and they finally made Mary Poppins a successful movie.
