How cool is this short?

So today we have a never seen before type of post at The Bookette.

A short film!

Personally, I know nothing about short films. But I do know that this one is very cool!

It is directed by a friend of mine who, like me, is a writer in progress. Andrew Harmer is a multi-talented guy, a plot genius and all round lovely person so I thought it would be awesome to give him a bloggy spotlight.

Enough talk for now, watch the film. You'll have to hop on this link to Youtube because Blogger is not excepting the Embed Code [grrrrrr!] Here is Beat It: http://youtu.be/aP6JIA0JtBE
Cool, huh?

I asked Andrew to give me a bit of background to the creation of such a masterpiece. Here is what he said:
The film was part of entertaining:tv initiative to develop new talent.

For me the short came from my love of old western films, specifically the gun fight shoot-outs. I wanted to twist that showdown into a modern urban environment but without the guns. The idea originally was a battle between two beat-boxers but then I fell upon the idea of the sounds physically affecting the other competitor. The idea then naturally developed into beat-boxer versus body locker.

Well Andrew, it was a funky idea indeed and I hope all my readers agree.

If you are in awe over this two minute spectacular, check out more shorts at Andrew's website: http://www.andrewharmer.com/

This is very cool! I actually really enjoy short films and this was really good. I really liked it! Amazing what a cool video can be done with beatboxing and some choreography.
