In this paper, I discuss the modern socio-technological state of global social control and its representation in my stop motion animated film P19. I will compare the ways in which social control has changed and remained the same from September 11, 2001 to the present. I will discuss the surveillance and control grids permeating all communication networks and how humans are interacting with them. I will conclude with an analysis of some of my techniques and processes in stop motion animation.
