Kids these days with their whozits and their whatzits and their living their lives entirely online to the point where the overabundance of personal and private information made public becomes an impediment to communication and the forming of real, honest, and long-lasting relationships.

That's the premise behind Noah, a short film by budding movie-makers Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival's Student Film Showcase.

In a story that plays out entirely on a teenager's computer screen, Noah follows its eponymous protagonist as his relationship takes a rapid turn for the worse in this fascinating study of behaviour (and romance) in the digital age.

Though it was not the best received short cut in the program, Noah did meet with appropriate (and well-deserved) success online where it has been viewed thousands of times since being uploaded to YouTube yesterday.

Caution: The film contains a fairly lengthy Chatroulette scene. So dicks ahoy.
