Plot Device

I didn’t think I’d like this video as much as I did, but it’s honestly pretty clever. On a whim, a young filmmaker decides to buy something called “Plot Device” off of Amazon, hoping that it will improve his filmmaking skills, but he has no idea what it does. It is in fact, a physical plot device button, inserting the protagonist into all kinds of stereotypical situations like the runaway brides, zombies and alien invasion flicks.

The whole thing was made with the new Magic Bullet software, which is probably like Photoshop filters on crack. The video does look pretty real, I mean I can’t imagine that they had that much of a budget to work with. If this kind of stuff interests you be sure to check out the making of video posted below.
