The holidays are the time of year we all like to relax and spend time with our friends, family, our favorite filmmakers. Well, sorta anyways…Last year, when Foreground Films released the first version of “The Auteurs of Christmas”, it saw widespread popularity, quickly going viral. The team brought back the theme this year with “The Auteurs of Christmas 2” in what we are all hoping has officially begun a new holiday tradition.
The short film features the creators interpretation of a scene as though some very well known filmmakers were directing it. It’s impressive how on point they were able to get. The real film buffs out there will marvel in the attention to detail that went into making the shots truly match their individual directors style and quirk. For example, you can look for appropriate screen ratios, foley arts and sound effects, color grading, cinematography, even Godard’s take on color theory was so accurately executed you can’t help but to grin at the perfect silliness of it all.
In part two of The Auteurs we’re treated to the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Charlie Chaplin, Terrence Malick, Christopher Nolan, Alfred Hitchcock, Morgan Spurlock, David Lynch, M. Night Shyamalan, Michael Bay, & Jean-Luc Godard.
