Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

Objectified A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

Gary Hustwit, who created Helvetica, is now working on a new film about Industrial Design, called Objectified. From the Objectified website:

“Objectified is a feature-length independent documentary about industrial design. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the people who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability. It’s about our relationship to mass-produced objects and, by extension, the people who design them.

Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?”

If you are interested in documentary making, Hustwit gave some tips on interviewing subjects in a recent talk, some of which are documented at Media Bistro (for the lazy – he says “My process of interviewing people is I do not interview people”).
