Quotes

Paul Gambaccini: [Chapter 2. Fame] Fame is a reaction of other people, so it isn't for me. You're nothing to do with it.

It's unlike any other documentaries I have seen before.

It is a Warholesque piece playing on colors, sound and interactivity to illustrate what a Digital Broadcast is.

By mixing a display of single color and radio broadcasts the film is mocking the 'Digital' and 'High Definition' craze that the media and IT world is trying to sell us.

Apart from its unusual presentation that not many people will understand, as a documentary it is an in-depth portrait of a man -Paul Gambaccini- that epitomizes Pop culture.

It has never been done before.

I have read it somewhere that the documentary was initially done in 1999 and was intended for a CD-ROM project; well it does have a CD-ROM feel about it.

It's extremely clever.
