How to visualize my idea into a documentary film?
I've been attending a Camp for School of Documentary that's been holding in my city in the beginning of January this year and I learned a lot of stuff about documentary filmography there. I also had cool tutors, a woman from LA and a guy from Barcelona, both successful film makers.
I found this site very useful from the beginning and since I saw a place where I can ask questions and I thought I may ask for help.
I have an idea which my tutors like the most but my problem is how to shoot a film with my idea.
It's a very complex idea which I'll try to explain into a few words. It's about informations technology which I personally think should gain more focus on it. I wanted to do a film with artistic approach which can explain the using of Internet and Information Technologies nowadays. Since the information is a very powerful thing, nowadays it's became even more powerful because of IT and quick exchange.
Now, you guys, can you give me some ideas how to visualize this idea into a more authentic way, not to be a cliché.

Congratulations on your big step signing up for the documentary camp. That's great that you liked your teachers and that you learned a lot.
It's interesting that you ask this question because I just went through a similar issue with one of my coaching clients. The reason you are struggling with how to turn your idea into a film is because, at this point, your idea is too vague.
Here are some questions to help you hone in on your idea.
1) What is it exactly
about the internet and technology you find fascinating? (Be specific)
2) What aspect of internet/technology fills you with curiosity?
