all about my live tweeting experience


Kendal Louis

BCM 325 – Future Cultures

A key component of BCM 225 Future Cultures are the ‘live tweeting’ sessions. These sessions involve BCM students engaging on Twitter during screenings of numerous sci-fi/future themed films via sending a series of tweets on various aspects of the films as it unfolds. This is also includes interacting with BCM classmate’s own tweets at the same time by replying, liking and retweeting.

The nature of the tweets involves discussing the production of the film, the history, genre, narrative, how it was received, by critics, if there have been any adaptation’s made and my own interpretation of the film.


The first film I live tweeted was Metropolis, a 1927 German Science fiction Film. Metropolis was directed by Fritz Lang, and shows Lang’s vision of a grim futuristic society. The film is said to contain some of the most impressive images in film history.
