"Television is the third parent." 

R. Buckminster Fuller

The Third Parent is a research web-documentary that critically analyzes the television streaming and digital media landscape using case studies, comparative analysis, and interviews. Through documentary video reporting, motion graphics, and text, this web-doc uses several forms of multimedia to deliver one overarching message– we have become complacent and acquiescent to the pervasiveness of streaming and technology in the digital age.

Parents have unknowingly allowed screens to create navigational maps for how their children should think, believe, act and behave.

It has served as a gateway for children to transition into adulthood before they could begin childhood.

It has defied the values that parents have instilled in them since birth.

It has become
The Third Parent.
