Short Documentary Follows the Real Life Adventures of the Instagram Community

Instagram is a lot of things: a photography app, a social network, a way to express yourself and a cause for headaches for the photographers who aren’t trilled by the concept. For the most adamant of Instagram users, however, Instagram is a community.

And it’s that community that filmmaker Paul Tellefsen sought to connect with when he chose to create the above short documentary Instagram is.

This short film actually started out as an assignment for a class at UT Dallas. A senior, Tellefsen was asked to create a trailer for a fake movie. But in the process of creating the trailer, he decided to turn the fake film into a real film by visiting with and capturing the real lives of some of prolific Instagram users.

The users that Tellefsen featured in the documentary are Allison Anderson (@allistrange), Kyle Steed (@kylesteed) and Brenton Little (@brenton_clarke), and each discusses what Instagram means to them and how it has changed their lives.

Strange, to think that a photography app could have such a significant impact on people, but it seems that each of the three has gotten back from Instagram something more than they’ve put it. For Tellefsen, Instagram is “reviving adventure, face to face community & real relationships,” a digital app that is pulling people back into the real world.

To find out more about the project, check out the video at the top or visit the Instagram is website here.
