>R is for Rubik, F is for Fake

>For some reason I love this kind of thing…

Michel Gondry, filmmaker and music video director, known for such films as The Science of Sleep (2006) and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), recently made a video in which he deftly solves a Rubik’s Cube with his feet and posted it to YouTube. See Video 1:

I really enjoy seeing filmmakers being a little weird of goofy in their “spare” time. I am not surprised the person who directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind would be able to solve a Rubik’s Cube with his feet.

And then someone noticed… (that someone being Scott Macaulay at Filmmaker http://www.filmmakermagazine.com/ magazine) and created a video response to Gondry’s video, and posted it on YouTube. See Video 2:

I have to say that I love what Gondry has done even more. This is just pure fun. It’s great to see a feature filmmaker having fun. It also humorously highlights that fact that all filmmaking is a kind of illusion in one way or another.
