I can't get enough of this preview clip for Vol. 3 of the Found Footage Festival, coming to Eugene Sunday. Maybe it's the song in the background ... who is that?! Doobie Brothers? Kenny Loggins? Journey?
Here's what we wrote about FFF in the Dec. 4 issue:
Never-before-seen TV commercials for obscure toys? Instructional videos on how to handle sexual harassment at the workplace, made at the height of said plague, the early â€˜90s? Long-forgotten home videos featuring daredevil stunts? If this all sounds familiar, thatâ€™s because weâ€™ve seen it all before on YouTube. Or so we think. Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have been co-curating the Found Footage Festival for the past four years and somehow always manage to come up with gems that no search on YouTube will reveal. In addition to the collection of oddities (mostly made by unselfconscious filmmakers from the â€˜80s and â€˜90s), Pickett and Prueher provide colorful commentary and stand-up routines (both are veterans of The Onion and The Colbert Report). 7:30 pm Sunday, Dec. 7, Bijou Cinemas. $10.
