In December last year I was working at MPC in London on Clash of the Titans. I had some spare time in the evenings. One day, after seeing this clip from CSI, I was seized by a strange compulsion to collect every example of cheesy tv and film image enhancement I could find and edit them into a short video.
I started by asking for examples on ask.metafilter.com and the first answer, a link to the Enhance button page on tvtropes.org, was probably the most useful resource. I also used various torrent, subtitle and transcript sites. I spent a few weeks downloading and editing, and managed to get it done before the Christmas break. My brother Joel did some great music in Garage Band which I re-cut the video to. After uploading to YouTube I posted it to my tumblr, b3ta and waxy’s amazing supercuts page (to which I’d previously contributed “My Arse!”).
I’m back in London for a bit working on Clash of the Titans after a lovely 3 months in California. Follow me on my (slightly more regularly updated) tumblog for more silly games related potatoshoppery.
