We have another video collection of films from 2010. This latest edit was created by Kees van Dijkhuizen. He most recently made the 15 Years of Fox Searchlight Films - Montage Video. The video he put together for this year turned out to be pretty cool. It takes you through several different moods of the films we've seen this year.
Heres a note from the editor who spent over 300 hours to making this thing:
We’ve reached the end of yet another unforgettable year of movies. Not only did this years movies push boundaries even further, they did so with impeccable risks. In a time of recession and playing-it-safe, films like Inception and The Social Network still found a great audience. But smaller films also, like Blue Valentine, Splice, Buried and Breaking Upwards found a loving audience. It’s crazy to think that all these films came out in one year, and so I tried my best do give them each a moment of glory in my latest film retrospective, Cinema 2010.
It’s the follow-up to the successful Cinema 2009, which obtained almost a million views on YouTube. 60,000 film fanatics used it to reflect on their year of film on New Years Eve. It was also screened in front of over 300 directors, producers and distributors in Amsterdam. Cinema 2010 perfects what 2009 accomplished; a personal, stylish and extensive summary of a year in film. Hopefully it will surpass Cinema 2009′s success, but even if it doesn’t, it’s still something to look out for. It premiered during the Houston Film Critics Society’s annual Award Show on December 18th and was available on YouTube December 21st. The broadcast of the award show on national television will feature Cinema 2010 as well.
