RS - Swede Film
For this task we had to create a "swede" of a film, of our choice. I chose "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" which is one of my favourite films. We had to take the aspects of the film and change it so it would be humorous. Therefore, using bananas as guns, and silly costumes was the way forward! We then added the films soundtrack and added a few sound effects to make it all fit together and look better.
A swede is picking a film and recreating it on a zero budget. Therefore there is no need for high budget actors or special effects, its just a small budget and a camcorder, and you are set!. Jack Black created the "swede" in the film Be Kind Rewind (Michael Gondry, 2008), this introduced sweding to the public and made it popular.
