Edgar Wright has a Gun Fetish (1993)

(Youtube Direktgun, via Badass Digest)

Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim) schnitt im Alter von 19 Jahren dieses Filmmashup namens „Gun Fetish“ aus VHS-Schnippseln zusammen, selbstverständlich mit „Happiness is a warm gun“ von den Beatles als Soundtrack.

Von seinem Blog:

The following clip I edited together while at Bournemouth Art College. Way before I’d ever seen an Avid suite, this was done over some long weekends locked in a VHS tape to tape editing suite. Yes, VHS!

So if you are wondering about the low quality of the sound and visuals in the following montage, there’s a simple answer. All of the clips were sourced from either films I’ve recorded off the TV, sell thru VHS tapes I had bought and also films that happened to be in the college library. I literally had piles of VHS tapes in the edit suite. So that explains some of the glitchy clips.

As for the audio edits, hey it was VHS and I was 19. This is the first time I used a ‘real’ editing suite.

So cast your minds back to the last century and see how I misspent my youth; cutting together bullet ballets to John Lennon’s melodic attack on the NRA.
