Wonderful Town... Director Ryan McFaul (whose music video for Gay Boyfriend was previously seen in this MeFi thread ) is back with a dizzying MGM-meets-digital-compositing advert for a Broadway production of Wonderful Town. (Slightly less dazzling, but still worth seeing, is his ad for a San Francisco production of White Christmas.) Somebody give this man a feature film!

A two-hour feature film filled with his zooming and panning within bluescreened frames would make me a bit seasick. That said, his style is perfect for 30 second ads.

By the way, moments after posting, I realized that "MGM meets MC Escher" would be a better description.

I agree with AlexReynolds. A full-length movie in the style of these ads would send me into diabetic shock.

Oh my God, I sent "Gay Boyfriend" to everyone I know. It's brilliant. And presuming he can direct actors well in non-music video style scenes, I think he'd be a brilliant film director...at least technically. Thanks for linking this!
