This video is a tribute to the works of Jerry Lewis and Miklós Rózsa.
Jerry Lewis became an inspiration in my life when I was very young. My grandfather would play episode after episode of the Colgate Comedy Hour while I sat there taking in the chaos and hilarity that ensued on screen. It did not take long for me to find his other works in "The Errand Boy," "The Nutty Professor," "The Bellboy" and so many others. "The Bellboy" quickly became my favorite. My favorite scene has been recreated in this video. And obviously, if you've seen the movie, I could never hold a candle to Jerry Lewis' comic abilities; but hopefully I didn't embarrass myself too much.
I was a fan of Miklós Rózsa before I even knew who he was. After watching movies like Ben Hur and Double Indemnity, I couldn't help but notice the stunningly powerful music that would elevate the pictures in front of me. After looking him up, I was shocked to see how much of an impact he had on classic films. I had to add him to this tribute.
Hopefully this is self-explanatory, but I realize that I do not own any of the rights to any of Jerry Lewis' or Miklós Rózsa's work. This short was not made for commercial use. I do not credit myself with the overall concept of this video. I do not own the music. This video was made entirely to celebrate the genius of these two men. I am a fan.
After a year of waiting, I finally found the time to make this video. And once production began I couldn't stop. After eight hours of shooting, editing and "acting" it was finished. It was a long but incredibly rewarding experience.
Shot with a Canon 6D and 5D Mark II DSLR.
Edited on Adobe Premiere.
I really hope you enjoy the video. Thank you for watching.
