In an age where the remake is standard fair many of my friends ask me the same question "have people run out of ideas?"
My answer is no, but with the ever constant fear of failure, studios often go with what they see as a safe bet. Much in the same way as our free to air TV is flooded with Reality TV. This is reflected in the many sequels and remakes that are in production currently. The remake of Gremlins for example.
But all is not lost, while cruising the Internet I found this cool short animated film created by Tyler Novo, on Jake Vipers cool site Epicstream
There are artists out there creating, and while they create we will always have cool things to watch and enjoy.
I love it and hope you do too.
