A Communications Primer

Something about this 1953 instructional video on communications theory gives me warm fuzzies. I love this stuff, and the way it was presented makes me long for instructional videos produced this way.

(Embed no longer working for this video, click here.)

“A Communications Primer” is an instructional film created in 1953 for IBM by Ray & Charles Eames with music by Elmer Bernstein. (via Laughing Squid)

  1. Very nice. Basically all the video is based on the 1948 article “A Mathematical Theory of Communication” by Claude Shannon (credited at the end but with other people)
