Kill the Giggler

Me vs Scott Pilgrim vs the World

I entered Edgar Wright's competition for a 1st anniversary tribute to the excellent Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, cruelly overlooked on its initial release but already firmly established as a cult classic.

I had nothing to do with the audio on the video - the remix was done by DJ Osymyso (the brain behind the awesome Intro Introspection, which you should definietly check out if you can track it down), I just cut the visuals.

Lots of old video game footage here for fellow nerds. Hopefully it's not totally incomprehensible if you're not able pick up on all that stuff, though.

Overall it was a fun exercise, if a little bit frustrating at points (there was a LOT of stuff to pack in). I'm getting better at proper editing though, I think, and I'm looking forward to starting a new vid (along the same lines as Broments in Love, but with a different theme) in the next few weeks, but for now I'm going to take a bit of a break as this was very time-consuming.

Here it is anyway. Enjoy!

Short Fridays #14: ‘Going Equipped’ and ‘War Story’

I went to the Barbican to spend a few hours at the Watch Me Move: The Animation Show last weekend, and it was a thoroughly entertaining way to spend a few hours. If you live in or around London you have to go see it (it’s on until 11 September) – the exhibition space itself is beautiful and thoughtfully presented, and there’s dozens of great, rare animated shorts that you won’t be able to watch anywhere else. The film that made the biggest impression on me was Google nightmare Zbigniew Rybczynski’s Oscar-winning Tango, but unfortunately the film is currently unavailable on YouTube or Vimeo. I will try to locate a copy soon, however.
