No. 2: Story of the Pencil

Available on iTunes
No.2, overlooked as a common tool, continues to lose dominance in a media saturated world. However, history tells a different story. The Pencil changed everything. Invention, craftsmanship, art, engineering, manufacturing, government, history, and business are a result of the pencil. Although the Pencil technology provided a way to move thoughts to a tangible form, technology is never static. As technology is a key focus to every aspect of society today, the pencil begins to lose its significance. With so many aspects of society existing in binary code, the pencil needs to be honored. We are in a battle against time. If we move away from using this analog piece of technology, what is society losing? How significant is the pencil to ingenuity? Should we care if the pencil shifts to the backseat? No.2 film seeks to develop the historical significance of the pencil in a charming and emotional story of a common ordinary tool.
