Lorem Ipsum

Eric Rice posted about this short film that he really likes. It is called Lorem Ipsum and is from the fertile mind of Dave Huth. I watched all 15 episodes plus the epilogue and I have to second that emotion. It is truly an amazing bit of work. It is a very well done film with that rarest of things in amateur filmmaking, an emotionally satisfying character story with acting good enough to sell it (although at points just barely.) On top of the narrative in the film form, it also contains a lot of meta-commentary about the capabilities of filmmaking as well as meta-commentary about the act of making citizen media. It’s very dense and well crafted on a number of levels.

I subscribed to his vlog feed and will be interested to see what other sorts of things come from the mind of this fractured genius. Meanwhile, I stand behind brother Rice and strongly urge you to check out this remarkable work. Thanks to ER for pointing to this.
