More Plagiarism

I then took a second look at the webpage of the future shorts film festival which seems to be an interesting ressource. At their edinburgh subsite I came across the short Sentimental Journey directed by Nagi Noda. You can watch it here (mov) or on YouTube. More info here.
While searching for that on google, I noticed some comments on YouTube accusing Coca Cola for having copied the idea for their 'What Goes Around Comes Around' commercial.

See it here.
That finally reminded me of a very cool music video by the chemical brothers 'Let forever be' which you also can watch on YouTube.

More to come !?

Sickfigure Fights

Today I got an email from someone asking for permission to screen 'my stickfigure movies' at a martial arts shortfilm-festival.
I pointed her to the Wiki-entry to make clear, that I am not the creator of the stickfigure death theatre.
After a while the person got back to me asking for a working email address of the creator Zhu Zhiqiang. While searching for that, I stumbled across the 'news' on him suing nike for copying his stickmen.
I then came up with the idea to ask for his contact information on google answers, but unfortunately my credit-card was declined. My bank told me that there is too much fraud going on with google. (ahem!?)

If anybody knows of a working email of Xiao Xiao aka Zhu Zhiqiang, please let me know by commenting.
