Janusz Kaminski Shorts

This is one of the coolest awards season promos I've seen! To highlight this year's best actors and writers, NY Times Magazine produced a series called "Making a Scene" with 11 one-minute short films directed by Janusz Kaminski, the Oscar-winning cinematographer (who doesn't have a film this year but last worked on Spielberg's Lincoln). Each short features a line or scene written by great writers, like Sarah Polley, J.C. Chandor, Jeff Nichols, Greta Gerwig & Spike Jonze. They each get to work with (most of) this year's best actor crop, including Adèle from Blue is the Warmest Color, Robert Redford, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oscar Isaac & Cate Blanchett. These are fun to watch and it only takes 10 minutes to view all 11 of them.

You can watch all 11 "Making a Scene" shorts one-after-another in this embedded video from NYTimes.com:

Update! We already posted this once before! So this is a re-posting because we can't recommend it enough.

Actor/writer combos in order of appearance in the video: 1) Oprah Winfrey + Sarah Polley (Stories We Tell); 2) Robert Redford + Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is The End); 3) Cate Blanchett + Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess); 4) Forest Whitaker + Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha); 5) Julia Louis-Dreyfus + Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said); 6) Bradley Cooper + J.C. Chandor (All is Lost); 7) Adèle Exarchopoulos + Danny Strong (The Butler); 8) Chiwetel Ejiofor + Jeff Nichols (Mud); 9) Greta Gerwig + Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater (Before Midnight); 10) Oscar Isaac + Lake Bell (In a World); 11) Michael B. Jordan + Spike Jonze (Her). For more: NYTimes.com.

Ridiculous, stupid, shallow, trite, without merit, embarrassing, self-indulgent, ego aggrandizing, moronic, childish, worse than student filmmaking, laughable, pointless, vain to the max, very, very boring, etc. etc. etc.

But why? I mean they all look pretty. Love the talent involved (for the most part anyway). But the question remains. "Why?" - Line by Davide Coppola
