When my son sent me the link to the video (above), I knew there was more to the talents of Jeremiah McDonald.
First, here’s a link to his website. There’s plenty to explore there. The following video is what he claims as his first viral video. After that are three “Screen Calentures,” short films he made where he connects, quite literally, to old silent films–the first with Buster Keaton, the second with Lumiere, and the third with Georges Melies. (By the way, calenture is defined as “feverish delirium supposedly caused by the heat in the tropics.”)
He’s a pretty talented and clever filmmaker, this Jeremiah McDonald.
