Do we disclose another side of ourselves to the camera that we wouldn’t in normal situations, even when we know it has a public platform?

Active Ingredient presented a screenplay generator designed specifically for Broadway. Featuring unforgettable film moments where characters are asked pivotal questions from a database of film screenplays. Based on the device often used in films, where a character looks in the mirror, seeing themselves as protagonists in their own personal narrative – Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver or Donnie Darko talking to Frank the dark, scary rabbit.
