So, what is it? And how do you get it right?
There are a kajillion blog posts out there about voice, though I still think Megan Rebekah did it best. But I just found a visual example.
And that's about the time my brain exploded.
If you haven't seen the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, this probably won't mean anything to you. (Also--why haven't you seen it? Are you kidding me?)
For those of you who have, just imagine if the whole story had been told in this voice:
The creator, Joseph Brett, says this of his video: "My aim was to make it look more like an indie coming of age film; perhaps the kind of film Sofia Coppola or Godard might make."
He didn't create anything new. He didn't manufacture moments from the movie--this story is there in John Hughe's classic. He just used a new "voice" to show us another side of Ferris Bueller.
What do you guys think?
