This year’s Done In 60 Seconds winner tells all
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].
