Over 5 days in the April 2015 school holidays 10 fabulously amazing students from Banyule and surrounds came together at Jets to make a short film about Internet Culture.

The team went from idea generation, production to post production under the guidance of industry professionals.
The story is of a persons regret and there epic journey through the cyber world to reclaim their identity.
