Ended up at bug last night on the South Bank. Host is radio's Adam Buxton. Funny man. Shambolic, but funny. The form is a run through of recent music videos (sometimes ads and short films, but not last night) picked for interesting direction. Adam bumbles through the name of the directors and maybe trawls through Youtube comments - which is good, because no sane person would have the time or inclination to read all 659 comments left by middle aged agraphobics with unusually strong right arms, and so no sane person is normally exposed to the comedy gold woven within.
Matt and Kim - Lessons Learned
really enjoyed this. Looked like one take. A bit of trickery at the end. Like much of the stuff we saw last night, reminded me that shooting at 35fps or something similar gives a really beautiful quality to to otherwise ordinary environments.
In the pantheon of simple but great ideas. Shouldn't keep you going for two and a half mins, but it does.
