What I liked

High production values, stylish look, the ability to opt out of participation from the beginning.

What I didn't like

Too short, not enough opportunities to more people to participate

My overall impression

OBLIVIOUS was a surprisingly cool delight on a hot summer day – I hope the creators find a way to expand this into something longer – i can imagine this having a good run somewhere. The video component is very high quality, and both the premise/story and the look are creatively done. (and, as someone who does NOT like to participate, i love that you check off a box on the ‘immigration’ form before you enter indicating your willingness to be selected.)
