I Claus

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

This is a personal favorite of mine.

What I love about it is that some how the filmmaker has combined a Fellini film with Benny Hill and who even thinks to do something like that? Who?

Keely Bruce, that’s who!

Keely Bruce is a friend and fellow filmmaker here in prairies of Calgary, Alberta. She put I Claus for the same Calgary Filmmaker’s Challenge I made Dickfore for.

Anyway, on with the show!
