The premise of this short film is to represent the digital tools and interfaces we use daily in an analog way. In the analog office, your computer desktop becomes your actual desk, your inbox gets flooded with Spam cans,the server runs past you multiple times a day (and perhaps crashes every now and then), and Twitter users follow each other around the space. This concept is essentially just for fun but also reminds us just how digitally connected we all are. The video was acted and produced entirely by the Meltmedia team and filmed in the Meltmedia office. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.
Heads-up: The “butler” or “waiter” guy is the “Server.”
Also heads-up: The movie is mostly Mac-based because we’re a Mac shop.
Also, also heads-up: Movie was edited using Final Cut Express 4. The typewriter scene, credits, and open title compositing were done in After Effects. Props and graphic elements in video were built in Photoshop or Illustrator.
Also, also, also heads-up: There’s a bonus scene past the end of the credits (beyond the copyright line).
