Toronto filmmaker plans to use prosthetic eye camera for documentary

Big Brother is watching — and so is Little Brother.
Toronto filmmaker Rob Spence says he is getting a tiny video camera put inside a prosthetic eye to allow him to secretly film his subjects.

Spence says his goal is twofold: to raise awareness of constant surveillance in society and to get people talking unself-consciously.

Hi Rob:

Very cool. I have been blind in one eye since age 17 and recently became interested in film making about vocational rehabilitation. My story http://www.geocities.com/scrate/1eye.html led me into the Voc Rehab profession. I have also taught sociology and psychology and am very interested in the results you get from your interviews. Please keep me informed of your progress and work

I was hit in the eye three years ago by a runaway stick, i never got a prosthetic one or anything. i think getting a video camera in replace is a brilliant idea, so keep me informed on your progress please.
