Vimeo Staff Pick: As the analogue age draws to a close, eight men sit in an Irish bar and battle to remain relevant in the digital world; the TV in the corner a harbinger of this technological future. It is the day of the analogue to digital switchover of television transmission. Conversations about life, death and quantum physics mix with pints to create a surreal document of the switchover day and of people caught between two worlds. Taking inspiration from that little piece of information that is lost in the transfer from analogue to digital, the film examines who and what is lost in the relentless rush forward. This film was made as part of the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann Reality Bites short documentary scheme 2013.

Something Wonderful in the post
Martina Flor, based in Berlin, is embarking on a charming side project to design and send lettered postcards to people she likes, loves, knows or wants to get in touch with around the world.
Each of the 100 planned postcards will be entirely made, written and sent by her periodically. Her dedicated blog, Letter Collections, documents the postcard design and receiver. I’ve picked a few of my favourites above. I’ll keep you posted if I’m lucky enough to receive one!
