Analogue People in a Digital Age (2013)
14min · Documentary, Short, Comedy · 1 September 2013
On the 24th of October 2012 the television transmission system on the island of Ireland changed from analogue to digital. On the day of the switchover eight analogue men sit at the bar and battle to remain relevant in the digital world; the TV in the corner a harbinger of the technological future. Conversations about life, death and quantum physics mix with pints to create a surreal document of the switchover day. Taking inspiration from that little piece of information that is lost in the transfer from analogue to digital, the film is about the people left behind in the relentless rush forward. It is about the characters that are living an analogue life in a digital world; people who are caught between two worlds.
