In an attempt to get his life together, Ryan, a slacker in his mid-20s, gets a temp data entry job in a soul-crushing cubicle farm. He volunteers to pull an all-nighter to finish a time-sensitive project for the company. But late at night, alone in the office, Ryan discovers a dying, disheveled man hiding above the ceiling tiles. He's a former employee, the guy Ryan's essentially replacing, and he needs help...
Kafka meets computers in "Man in Ceiling," a bizarre tale of one man at the foot of the corporate ladder meeting another at the end of his rope.
Scott Bradlee of the viral musical project Postmodern Jukebox commissioned eight short doc-style pieces to introduce new listeners to the band, and answer specific questions about an upcoming international tour.
Postmodern Jukebox takes top 40 pop music and reimagines it in the style of 20s ragtime, 40s big band swing, 50s doo-wop, and various other genres of yesteryear. They've accumulated well over a million YouTube views, released over a dozen albums, and have played to sold-out crowds around the globe.
These pieces combine talking head interview segments with previous videos and photographs at PMJ concerts. Public domain archival footage has also been incorporated from the Prelinger Archive, blending seamlessly with Postmodern Jukebox's vintage feel.
