post-bank (AT), script development

During my studies I applied for a position as a mystery shopper on a database as part of my job search. Years later I got a call where I was asked to test a post office on their consultations regarding private pension plans in a small town near Leipzig. Thereafter, I should fill out a question sheet to help grade the quality of the conversation. I agreed to it out of curiosity. I should make up a fake identity, with an address, profession and life story which I had forgotten by the time I got there, due to the excitement. I answered the questions during the consultation truthfully as myself. Here I found out that a pension gap of € 903 was waiting for me but that the only possible risk of the offered conservative product “Future Security” would be the downfall of the global capital system.
I later staged this talk with an actress. On that basis I would like to create a script for an anthology film or a video series which centres on the culture of evaluation: Ranking, Rating, Mystery Shopping, Evaluation Portals, Symbols of Evaluation… Which symbolism and what language is used here, how do discussed and addressed topics influence the speaker. Part of this script is also the issue of money. In Vienna I would like to work on this script.
