On four handpicked examples of my homemade experimental movies:
I never had a budget to do these short videos, and if I did I most likely spent it on making music. Or food. Or beer. But I put a lot of effort into them, even if it was most definitely in vain. I did most of the acting, in some cases every role. I spoke Danish in these, because it was more natural to me, but subtitled it for “the Danishly handicapped”. Whatever that means. I remember showing these to a few friends, but they all rolled their eyes. So of course, I want to share them with my fellow EC weirdos. You might roll your eyes at a slower pace!
In this one I dragged a bicycle into my parents’ bathroom, along with a flamingo head with make-up, a bowl of cookies and a Danish flag. Then I made a movie based on those props. The score is all done in MIDI on my 200? iMac. A bit of ridiculous fun that was interpreted in many ways by people. It was even labeled art by some people.
Morten Severin på skideren (Morten Severin in Deep Shit)
Based on a story I wrote in elementary school, this one includes aliens, vampires, detectives, comedy and mystery. It’s bad. But it was the most fun I had making this kind of movie! I wrote the script for it first, which might make it the most professional of my stupid home movies.
Døds-missen (The Death Pussy)
This one has a story but was mostly improvised. Filmed in my parents’ yard and featuring their cat in a main role. It’s about a Danish expedition to the faraway country of Denmark in search of the dangerous Death Pussy!
Til Helvede (To Hell)
This one is the most experimental of the four movies I chose to share on EC. It is basically all free-formed around the idea of a guy who has three distinct personalities. I play all three and my niece Ronja who was about 5 years old at the time, plays a medusa. I think.
Hope you enjoy my stupid homemade theatre!
But I can hope all I want!
As long as you got some kind of entertainment out of it
it is more than I ever aimed for with these!
I wanted to kill time, and I did.
