Mrs. Doubtfire – The Evil Version

I found a great clip today that I wanted to share with you, which shows what kind of impact  editing, together with the right music, can have to a trailer or movie.

Daniel Baxter, a Staffordshire University student, made this clip for an editing exercise. The goal of the exercise was to alter the genre of an existing movie, by editing it, so that it seemed to be in a completely different genre.

I think that Daniel did an awesome and entertaining work, and if you pretend that you haven’t seen or know the genre of Mrs. Doubtfire; it’s pretty hard to imagine that it’s something else than a thriller, isn’t it?

For you who don’t know what kind of movie Mrs. Doubtfire is, I can tell you that it’s a comedy, directed by Chris Columbus, starring Robin Williams, Sally Field and Pierce Brosnan.

However, with a bit of clever editing, together with the soundtrack from The Dark Knight, Daniel has created a trailer, which presents a much darker story, where Mrs. Doubtfire comes off as someone who probably isn’t that nice.

Therefore, kudos to Daniel for a great clip, which I thought, was both fun and informative, even though the text in the end could have been better, or what do you think?

    No worries, I’m just pleased that someone else liked it enough to embed it onto their blog! Keep a look out for more films on my page on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/user3156204) that I’m working on at the moment.
