Bye Bye Jar Jar & Teenage Potter

Controversial Rage Faces

A couple of weeks ago we released this video on our YouTube channel:

It quickly became one of our most seen videos, but also one of our most controversial. The comment section turned into a battle ground between different sites (4chan vs Reddit vs 9gag vs Funnyjunk).

From a Media Science perspective this clash of «user based titans» is highly fascinating.

Rage comics originated on 4chan and then spread across the internet, growing/changing with each new user base. So for a lot of people there is this feeling of other sites taking something unique and special, and ruining it.

Personally I would love to see someone in academia do research on this type of internet culture.

Occupy the Afterlife

Each of my directing classes demand that I make a short film as a final assignment. Last fall had a deadly taste of work overload, and so I had to put together a project rather quickly in the end of January.

Quick projects are often the most fun to make though. And this was just a blast. I wrote the whole thing based on my friends Christoph and Kevin.

And.. Of course I went with.. Ghosts.

Playing With The Gregory Brothers

We started up a new season of PistolShrimps in February, and for our first video we were lucky enough to get help from some of our internet favorites, The Gregory Brothers.

Evan Gregory made a sweet 80s-workout-montage remix of the LOTR theme, with help from Alexander Foote. Check it out here:

The Science of Blowjobs and Throbbing Hearts

Here’s the first short film I made at Columbia. I wanted to write a longer post about the production of it, but I just can’t seem to find the time to do so.

But in short:  I’ve always had a tendency to overanalyze everything, so I wanted to find a way to visualize that. And so the idea was born of having a group of scientist stuck in this boy’s head, doing the calculations for his every move.

Anyways, I’m so grateful for all the people who helped out.

Border Crossing

We still like to play around with toy guns. Pew! Pew! Pew!
