This is a link post A Very British Thing I made this!
A one minute remake of the 1982 John Carpenter masterpiece The Thing. Done for the Empire Magazine 'Done In 60 Seconds' comp. Although their rubbish website wont let me upload it. In my (weak) defence, it's intentionally cheap and silly looking. Some familliarity with the film will help. *apologises and hides*

Excellent work. There's a really good District 9 one on youtube now as well:

I imagine the Empire servers are overloaded at the mo - maybe try uploading at an obscene hour of night?

This is a normal post That D.9 one is flippin' brilliant and deserves posting on here way more than mine.
Did you make it? It's proper funny. Loved it.

(I think) my vids been uploaded now, so maybe the Empire internets was switched off last night.

I didn't make the District 9 one... I made this one (advertises shamelessly):

This is a normal post There's some great ones on youtube now
But I'm still confused about the rules concerning use of music - I took it to mean you couldn't use anything that wasn't your own, but I don't think Empire were clear enough about not using music from the films, so I wonder if some of the vids won't be eligible (there's a really good Fight Club one but it has Dust Brothers tunes all through it).

I think original music from the film's allowed, but only for no more than 30 seconds.

This is a normal post thats what confused me -
I took "original" music to mean stuff you might write or compose yourself instead of original soundtrack music - the rules say there should be no copyright infringement at all - I don't get how using less than 30 seconds is not copyright infringement as advertisers could use any music they want in that case. I'm so confused!

This is a normal post My old Uni lecturer told us you pay significantly less
if its under 30 seconds hence there being so many 29 second clips.
