Can Traditional Mediums Survive in Today’s Digitally-Designed World? This Short Film, “Ink & Paper,” Will Make You Wonder
Do ink and paper still have a place in today’s digital world? Ink & Paper, a short film directed by college student, Ben Proudfoot, will make you wonder.
The film features two employees of neighboring downtown Los Angeles shops: printing press, Aardvark Letterpress, and paper shop, McManus & Morgan Paper (the oldest in Los Angeles), both struggling to stay in business. They are the last standing paper and print businesses left in the downtown Los Angeles area, according to the film, in an area where these industries once thrived.
Whether you feel that printing methods and fine paper are here to stay, or gone for good, the film certainly reflects a transformation taking place in the design industry.
