A fun project from the summer of 2010 is finally online.
From the project description at thefootlooseremake.com --
We are a collection of amateur filmmakers and video-making enthusiasts, who recreated the Kevin Bacon classic. Different filmmakers from “around the world” have divided the original 1984 Footloose into 54 different scenes. A collaborative work of friends, "Our Footloose Remake" is our message to the Hollywood remake machine.
In October 2008 it was announced that Paramount Pictures and Dylan Sellers Productions would be remaking the classic Footloose, starring Zac Efron. We were fed up. The Hollywood remake machine was going to take another solid movie, put it through the ringer, and make a buck from a younger generation.
We decided “Let’s beat them to the punch. Let’s do this remake our way.”
FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF FILMMAKERS:
Created slowly over several months, the film premiered at The Downtown Independent Theatre in Los Angeles on July 1st, 2010 and is now online in its entirety for the very first time. Please enjoy.
