What if you could use advanced technology to alter the appearance of parts of your body you feel are unattractive?
In the sci-fi short film AUGMENTED, written by Ben Shillito and Ross Peacock (who also directed), we visit a near-future where one cosmetics company has pioneered the use of nanites to allow users to alter their physical appearance to others.
While the short does have its fair quotient of intrigue, the majority of its run time is spent with two characters engaging in a fascinating discussion about the staggering implications of the technology.
AUGMENTED uses its premise to pose some unsettling and provocative questions about the extent we are allowing technology - and in turn, the powerful corporations that control it - to influence and pervade our daily lives.
