Director Versus Uploader: Charlie Bit My Finger Remixes
Creating under the premise 'Anyone can upload. Few can direct,' three filmmakers demonstrate the quality difference between home videos and the learned skill of the director.
Creating under the premise ‘Anyone can upload. Few can direct,’ the Worldwide Short Film Festival challenged three directors to demonstrate the quality difference between home video enthusiasts and the learned skill of the director.
Jeff Chan, Lewis and Sammy Ray took up the challenge remaking the popular viral clip Charlie bit my finger – again! into a horror, a dark comedy and a musical.
The Canadian Film Centre explains the project;
In today’s snack culture, there’s no shortage of home videos circulating online, garnering millions of views worldwide. To demonstrate the difference in quality between a short film and a video, we had three directors turn the popular viral video “Charlie Bit My Finger” into a short film. We ended up with three very different cinematic interpretations, but they all share one thing in common: a great director makes all the difference. Come see the world’s best short films at the Worldwide Short Film Festival.
The Worldwide Short Film Festival opens in Toronto May 31.
