I was recently contacted by a group of communications students in Spain who wanted to share with me a project they just finished that was inspired by the exercises in style done by Raymond Queneau and myself. In fact, they have used my “template” scenario as the basis of their series of shorts which you can now watch on youtube.
The variations which follow an initial “straightforward” version (entitled “MRI” which incidentally stands for Modo de Representación Institucional or classic filmmaking and not “magnetic resonance imaging”) include:
- 100 shots
- horror film
- youtube monologue
It continues to be rewarding to see how my book has become part of an ongoing creative exploration of storytelling form all around the world and in all kinds of media. If you’ve done a project inspired by 99X I hope you’ll let me know about it.
