Electro-Shock

Animated educational film clarifying the biological effects of electromagnetic (EM) fields. The aim is to make current scientific knowledge available to everyone and to open a public debate on the health risks of modern technologies.

TREATMENT:

 

Together with a continuous

PoV camera, we discover

the most fundamental

mechanisms of EM fields

interacting with specific

parts of the human body.

 

Each chapter starts with the

basic biological knowledge

(e.g. cellular respiration),

then reveal the bio-physical mechanism of interaction

at the sub-atomic level

(electron spin change) and subsequent bio-chemical changes (free radical formation) that can lead to serious diseases (cancer).

 

The final chapter outlines the

most suitable approach to adjust legislation for mitigating risks based on the contemporary science (the precautionary principle).

 

 

TECHNOLOGY:

 

The visuals are based on

digital 3D animation (CGI)

in three planes (foreground,

middle plan, background)

+ 2D graphic elements added

during the editing process.

 

 

 

 

The audio component consists

of a spoken commentary (mono), accompanied by sound FX(stereo)

and background music (stereo).

 

 

 

 

 

The credits and scientific literature are formulated

according to the established

Harvard citation standard.

HOW DID IT BEGIN:

 

During my university studies, I was shocked that legislation protecting public against harmful effects of modern technologies is not entirely consistent with the current scientific knowledge.

 

I decided deep dive into the topic, perform a massive review of scientific literature and make conclusions  available to everyone in visually attractive, understandable and transparent way.

 

Since we use various electronic devices every day (phones, computers, gadgets), and 5G wireless network is about to come into our lives, health risks should be publicly known, so we all can safely use modern and emerging technologies for our daily activities.

The complete summary of project information, including the press release, can be found

in the following press materials:

Video-clips:

 

A brief summary of five key areas for holistic insight into the electrosmog:

 

  1. Biological context
  2. Evidence of effects
  3. Mechanisms of interaction
  4. Health consequences
  5. Protection of public health

 

Available as 1-2 minute video-clips

for a quick overview.

Clip 1: Vision biology

 

Would you like to enhance your biological knowledge in an entertaining way? Each chapter of the film is introduced with an elementary knowledge for easier understanding of biological effects.

 

Clip 2: Biological effects of electrosmog (evidence)

 

The most infamous biological effects of EM fields:

1) Living cells react to the EM field as harmful.

2) Increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier.

3) Changes in the excitability of nerve cells.

Clip 3: Electrosmog & DNA (mechanisms)

 

Electromagnetic radiation can directly damage DNA. Let's take a closer look at how this happens by affecting the electrons of nucleobases...

Clip 4: Electrosmog & Free radicals

(mechanisms and impacts)

 

How do both radioactive & microwave radiation cause harmful effects? Mostly indirectly by the free radical formation, in addition to disrupting the hydrogen bonds of our DNA. The non-ionizing radiation produces free radicals mainly by accelerating the Fenton reactions and preventing the neutralization of superoxide molecules.

Clip 5: Electrosmog & Legislation

Precationary principle (ALARA)

 

Legislation on health protection should be based on the precautionary principle - according to the current state of scientific knowledge and the Council of Europe resolutions. Currently 7 EU countries have voluntarily implemented stricter legislative measures.
