IRL (In Real Life) is a web series about the intersection of social media culture with contemporary life and was just released online after airing on Bell Fibe TV1.

What inspired IRL?
I was inspired to make IRL because I noticed how social media had completely transformed my life and I made the series to find out why. Maybe it was a sense of alienation that I wanted to understand more fully.
