And when I say young, I mean that Joel is nineteen years old. Wow, indeed.
I am immensely flattered by this montage which brings together clips of ‘A Fistful Of Fingers’, ‘Spaced’, ‘Shaun Of The Dead’, ‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Don’t’ and ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.’
Not to mention clips of some of my music videos for Mint Royale, Charlotte Hatherley, Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and The Bluetones.
It’s like watching my life flash before my eyes on YouTube.
Joel, you make me feel warm and fuzzy again. Thanks.
Here’s what Joel had to say about the video.
Well everyone, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. The follow up to the widely popular tribute “The Films of Edgar Wright” has been unleashed. I couldn’t be more thankful for all the insanely positive feedback that was received by all the viewers of “The Films of Edgar Wright,” especially from Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright himself!
*So what’s missing?
Well I guess there are some more early TV credits that are out there but tough to find; ‘Mash & Peas’, ‘Asylum’, ‘Alexei Sayle’s Merry Go Round’, ‘Is It Bill Bailey?’, ‘Murder Most Horrid’, ‘French & Saunders’, ‘Sir Bernard’s Stately Homes’ as well as some other music videos; ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’ for the Bluetones and ‘Summer’ for Charlotte Hatherley.
If you want to go even deeper there are two videos for Ruth that haven’t been unearthed. And I guess I have a whole bundle of amateur films that have not become available. Although ‘Dead Right’, the movie I made when I was 19 is on the Hot Fuzz DVD & BluRay.
I’m not suggesting that Joel goes for mashup number 3, he would be 40 by the time he tracks all of the above down. And he has better things to do with his time, clearly!
So here’s to an amazing teenage editor! Hats off!
