Everything is a Remix Part 2

Using archive clips and inventive graphics this video essay by Kirby Ferguson shows how different movies influence one another.

There is a particular focus on Avatar (2009), Star Wars (1977) and Kill Bill (2003/04).

By the way, notice the use of Clementine’s Loop at the beginning, a piece of music by Jon Brion which pops up in the first three films by Paul Thomas Anderson.

The Lost Boys Michael Edit

Dan Nixon has re-edited The Lost Boys (1987) so that every line of dialogue is Michael.

If you haven’t seen Joel Schumacher’s vampire film, it is about two Arizonan brothers (Jason Patric and Corey Haim) who move to California and end up fighting a gang of teenage vampires )led by Kiefer Sutherland).

Bizarrely, Andrew Lloyd Webber is a big fan.

As you can see from the following video, the word ‘Michael’ is used a lot.

One Year in Two Minutes

Eirik Solheim has created a timelapse video from more than 3500 high resolution photos shot over a year.

Over 2010 he took a photo a day on his old Canon 400D from his window every 30 minutes for 12 months, giving him around 16,000 images to work with.

He then culled them to 3,500, and put them together to create this film.
