Chuckle Vi­sion

This year’s Done In 60 Sec­onds win­ner tells all

Empire (UK) - - PREMIERE -

olossi of com­edy they may be, but it’s un­likely that Paul and Barry chuckle — the chuckle Broth­ers — will ever be fea­tured in an os­car ac­cep­tance speech. Un­less, that is, marc cole­man ever wins an os­car. for he was the win­ner of this year’s Jame­son em­pire done in 60 sec­onds, the short film com­pe­ti­tion that chal­lenges you to re­make any film you like, but with a run­ning time of only one minute, with his unique reimag­in­ing of Brian Hel­ge­land’s Leg­end as a ve­hi­cle for the chuck­les. fea­tur­ing cus­tard-pie fights, great gags, and “to me” and “to you” knuckle dusters, it was the unan­i­mous choice of this year’s diss panel. Con­grat­u­la­tions on win­ning DISS 2016. Has it sunk in? it hasn’t. it still feels pretty mad. i’m over the moon. it’s a cool thing to be a part of.

What does this mean to you? A lot. i’m just a guy that’s been play­ing with cam­eras since i was a teenager.

What did you do af­ter you won? We chat­ted to loads of su­per-nice peo­ple. We had a re­ally nice chat with corin Hardy about prac­ti­cal ef­fects. That guy is awe­some. i didn’t get a chance to chat to matt da­mon, al­though i don’t think he’d have got the chuckle Broth­ers ref­er­ences.

Was this the first time you’d en­tered? This was the sec­ond. We en­tered last year with our take on The Fault In Our Stars. ours was called The Fault In Our Star Wars. it was very weird. i en­tered be­cause i loved the con­cept. it’s fun. it’s al­ways been about get­ting some friends to­gether, who have never stepped foot in front of a cam­era be­fore and just see­ing what hap­pens. it’s a great plat­form for new film­mak­ers for sure. i think my thought process went, “choose a se­ri­ous film and make it silly.” Leg­end seemed a great one to do as it was a good chance to do some split screen. Then i thought, “if you were go­ing to cast some broth­ers to play the twins, who would be the worst cast­ing choice of all time?” and for some rea­son, the chuckle Broth­ers popped straight in [my head].
