Remake Your Favorite Movies Yourself! How About "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" To Start? completes her week of guest blogging in the Bowl Of Noses today.  Super big thanks for all the good links, Mrs P!  Who's next?!

Learning the craft of filmmaking comes in many forms. This shot-for-shot remake by some Mississippi kids who spent much of the 1980’s recreating “Raiders of the Lost Ark”,  I am sure taught them much about how a filmmaker thinks and what it takes to execute a scene. We have seen this technique used to pay homage to other filmmakers, like when Gus Van Sant recreated his shot-by-shot of Alfred Hitchcock’s  “Psycho”. They type of diligence shows a real love for the craft. I love that these kids had such a long attention span to complete this too. It may have been awhile since people have seen this one.
