Why did Adam Anwar and Matthew Downey decide to make this slightly surreal take on Kung Fu movies?
The answer’s in the title. Why not? Also, why not release it when people are continuously faced with the choice of depressing news, or things that spark wonder, joy, or disbelief (or all three).
There’s no particular logic to this clip, but it’s strangely beautiful and, though filmed outside of lockdown, looks like a solution to how to make characters interact while social distancing.
The lesson here is make something that amuses you, complete it with the best production values you have, and release it. That’s always a route to getting laughs and getting better.
