The Pocket Jakes Short Film 'Online Now' takes a fascinating look at the technological generation. While they may be the most socially connected via Web, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and more, this generation is not necessarily living enough in the moment or putting enough into real relationships -- at least, according to the short film.

However, while the video does a great job at emphasizing this point through the depictions of the people who sit together on their phones, or the family who can't put down their laptops or smartphones to spend time together, it also shows the upsides too. The final interaction of the video shows someone going to an online community and having anonymous strangers support her through her difficult time. The Pocket Jakes Short Film Online Now is smartly shot and provides a fair balance of the pros and cons of this generation.
