The documentary "Appuyez sur le bouton" : au pays des modes d'emploi" was produced and broadcast across France in 2008. Paul Ballard of 3di was introduced to it by John Alexander of Donovan Data Systems, and they agreed the film was an inventive and entertaining approach to an unusual subject, and that it deserved a showing in the UK, particularly to professionals working in the field of technical information.
"Push the Button" is an excellent little film: telling the story of how our lives have become so dependent on and entwined with the technical instructions that support so much of life's stuff. Through Paul and John, the ISTC and the IDA organised the English subtitling of the film and the production of DVDs so that the film could be rented out to tecnical communicators and information designers.
