Storyboard Text

  • A team of 4 psychology students took to the subway of NYC in 1969 to test how altruistic people are. Each team was made of two men (one black one white, playing the victim and the model) ad two women (who recorded all results from the experiment).
  • The model would react from either the critical area (the area the victim collapsed in) or the adjacent area. The white and black guy would swap over so they could see if race effects how quickly the victim is helped.
  • I'm the victim and everyday between 11am and 3pm I will collapse 70 seconds into the journey.
  • I'm the model and I will always help the victim after they collapse. I will react after 70 second or after 150 seconds.
  • Results show that 95% of ill people will be helped. 50% of drunk people will get help. Men are more likely to help than women.
  • I've collapsed! I do this everyday and act either drunk or ill to see how many people help me.
