Thankyou so much for posting my video here - much appreciated. It is part of a series of films which I am making called "reconstructions" or "RECONS" in which I reconstruct artworks using remakes posted on-line. I have completed two other RECONS to date:

Andy Warhol Eats a Hamburger, reconstructing the scene from Jorgen Leth's "66 Scenes from America" where Warhol eats a hamburger using remakes from YouTube: http://vimeo.com/14317171

The Death of the Author (Psycho RECON) in which I have reconstructed the famous shower scene from Hitchcock's Psycho shot for shot from remakes on YouTube: http://vimeo.com/14235738

I am working on some longer RECON projects presently. Thanks again for featuring this!!!!!

All the best-
Dick Whyte
