Short Film Of The Day: The Movie Nerd Parody of ‘1 Scene, 9 Directors’

Why Watch? Some of it’s obvious, some of it’s aggressively amateur, but it’s hard to resist posting a short film that’s so dedicated to movies. It also helps when the director claims that it’s this column that helped push him out the door and finally get something on camera.

Plus, despite a few flaws, this comedic short from Walter Woods nails down the style of a handful of notable directors right down to the title sequencing. Wes Anderson is a bit clunky, but Quentin Tarantino is spot on, and the rest are pure icing for a great example of low-budget filmmaking that works because of a clever, sketch comedy-style concept and good execution which mines what’s funny about stereotyping auteurs.

What will it cost? Only 9 minutes.
