Presenting Chatroulette Users to Themselves

Chatroullete is a website that randomly pairs users inn video chats. Very quickly it became a breeding ground for trolls and masturbators. Being of the former group, I decided to use ManyCam to screengrab the user’s own stream and present it as my own.

The music (from the Twin Peaks Score by Angelo Badalamenti) in the video shaped the tone into something serious and potentially sinister (which, in hind site, perfectly describes Chatroulette).
