I love filmmaker Guy Maddin
. His films are bizarre, extremely stylized and always manage to find a balance between the earnest, the amusing and the intense. His latest undertaking is Seances
- an algorithmically generated short film that exists only once, for your singular viewing. This sort of dynamic web-experience isn't entirely new
but the source material being used here comes from such a wild variety of places (lost Cambodian films, American trailer park found footage, lost movies, etc) that it really ends up being something different. And it's Guy Maddin, so you know it's put together in a way that's worth your time.
You can read more about the undertaking and an interview with Maddin over on VICE
