Jameson and Empire team each year for a competition called Done in 60 Seconds, in which entrants have to create a 60-second video encapsulating the plot of a favorite film. One of the entries this year is by Wolfgang Matzl, who recreated Inception with 19th century-style paper cutouts. Check it out after the break.
The key here, for me at least, isn’t just the animation, which is quite well done. But the voice-over is a very important component as well, and the way that “…in my dream.” is spoken at 0:11 just killed me. And the french/fog horn ‘braaaaaaaaaamh’ stand-in works quite well, too.
Finally, with just a nudge this would become The New Adventures of Sigmund Freud. And that ain’t bad.
