Sometimes making your way through an entire major motion picture can be so very trying. Or maybe all you really want is a refresher on how someone like Forrest Gump went from zero to hero over the course of a two hour-plus feature film. Enter the "One Minute" film, as perfected by a group of UK film students who've amassed a growing fan following on YouTube. Their latest offering: "28 Days Later in One Minute, in One Take." Watch it after the jump – it'll only take 60 seconds of your life!
It all started last spring, when a group of British film students at the University of York shot a condensed (and dare I say it? More watchable) version of Forrest Gump for a one-minute film competition. When "Forrest Gump in One Minute, in One Take" blew up on YouTube, the group – comprised of members of the campus film making society -- discovered there might be something to this 60-second movie business. A few months later "Kill Bill Parts 1 & 2 in One Minute" followed, a virtuoso piece of carefully plotted choreography that manages to tell the entirety of Quentin Tarantino's two-flick vengeance tale in much, much less time.
After the jump, watch "28 Days Later in One Minute, in One Take."
