Short film about Dublin doorman charts changes in the city over 60 years

The film follows the story of a Dublin doorman from 1928 – 1988.

TAKE A BREAK and check out this short film – After You – which goes through sixty years in the life of a Dublin doorman.

The animation, which centers around Hotel Metropole, starts off in 1928 with the main character enjoying his job.

However, worry sets in with the introduction of revolving doors, which has paper boys chanting: “Revolving door revolution, Dublin city in a spin.”

The beautiful animation, which charts the growth of Dublin over a 60 year time period, also has a very poignant ending.
