I love Freddie W’s YouTube videos. He and his team make fantastic, frequently game-themed videos which show you just what semi-pro film-makers can do with some readily accessible software, cameras and a lot of talent.
Take a look at his newest, “Battlefield 4 trailer” video, for example. Or his “Gamers commute” clip. He’s a real talent and part of the reason that I watch more on-line content these days than traditional telly.
But he’s not alone – I found this “Doctor Who”themed video on Topless Robot this morning which amply illustrates why the Sonic Screwdriver’s multifarious abilities would well and truly break the quasi-realism of most action movies (a slight content warning – if mild gore is not your thing, you might want to avoid the video as it features a somewhat graphic, John Woo-style head shot).
