Latitude is a satirical road trip film about two geeks who go on a treasure hunt to find the world’s ultimate technology, which they believe is hidden in a game called geocaching. It’s a bit of a metaphor, with the two lead characters being based on two very well known technology companies, and explores narratives of technological progress.
The film was made as a teaching project aimed at creating a low budget, and slightly critical, feature length film with undergraduate media production students. The script, funding and production was all conjured up over 4 months. It was produced across England, Wales and USA with a very small production team and tiny budget just to see if we could do it.
Well, here is a little taster of the film, we hope that you enjoy.
