Five Things McLuhanesque

To mark Watershed’s Marshall McLuhan centenary celebrations, here is a collection of short films that reflect (with a playful twist) the musings of this iconic media guru.

 
 The day Bob was saved by modern technology When new technology is in the hands of those in need it can be a real life saver, especially when it conjures up two old ladies with a good old-fashioned solution.
 A Picture Can Say A Thousand Words The typewriter is looked at through a different lens in this visually striking short.
And The Red Man Went GreenAn old woman’s world is turned upside down at a pedestrian crossing as she negotiates the hectic streets of London.
 everything’s going to be fine…A man is crippled by anxiety as a faceless narrator nonchalantly lists the physical symptoms of the modern condition…
 Reality TV A simple night in in front of the TV turns into an existential, self-referencing nightmare.    http://tinyurl.com/3wedodk
