"Be Kind Rewind [...] has been repurposed by its director Michel Gondry [in 2012] as an interactive environment [called] the Home Movie Factory, [...] a space in which visitors are provided with all the tools and props to make their own fiction films, and revels in the fun of filmmaking in a self-consciously amateurish way. It is evidence of a new subculture of amateurism." Small-Gauge Storytelling (2013) by Ryan Shand

Is it just me or was Michel Gondry’s (The Science of Sleep, 2006) clip of French house music outfit Daft Punk’s 1997 single ‘Around the World’ really inspired (bandaged/mummified ladies) by the work of ‘medical artist’ Romain Slocombe?
