Part of my project exploring the potential of Webcams as Emerging Cinematic Medium, "Portraying A'dam" consists of a documental approach to the city of Amsterdam, exclusively making use of the publicly-accessible Webcams available on the 4th of October 2013. This film is composed by three chapters of which only the third is shown at present. Entitled "Face to Ground", this chapter focuses on the extreme ability for the cameras to discern and highlight identifiable people's facial features, while also covering an enormous amount of ground detail.
Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.
The story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
