From Jimmy Lui himself:
"I wrote and directed the film for Justin Lin's Interpretations 2.0 competition for YOMYOMF. The rules were the final film must be under 3 minutes long and must use these 4 lines of dialogue in this order with no additional dialogue or line substitutions. Other than that, you can do whatever story you want. The 4 lines of dialogue for the competition are:
- "Don't do that."
- "Of course."
- "I have my doubts."
- "What is it?"
|I LIKE THE IDEA OF BEING A YANGGUIZI. HAS A NICE RING TO IT.|
Jimmy Lui and his crew made the most of the three minutes that they were given. The Hopping Dead looks sharp, is witty, and it works well within the framework of its own rules. They even managed to sneak a bit of Kung-Fu in towards the end, which is definitely something that is in Lui's wheelhouse.
|I THINK THAT CAT HAS A QUESTION.|
This was a fun 3 minutes.
B+ for ingenuity under such restrictions.
