Cool Short: David Lynch’s Dune using cardboard and socks


“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear’s path, and only I will remain.”

David Lynch’s science fiction cult classic is given the Super-Swede sendup by Monkey with a Mustache!

Here is what Tin Lizard Productions had to say about their version.

Jerry, Brian, and I (and many very patient friends) started making this sometime in… 2012. Like the real Dune, it spiraled out of control. We went over budget by tens of dollars. It ran far over schedule. At CONvergence last year, we screened a dubious, lumbering 15-minute cut of the film.

But after all that, Jerry and I finally got together and trimmed away all the fat, and now it is here in a svelte 7 minutes of M80s, sand, and construction paper

Watch it below as it is quite brilliant.

Thanks to Holly for the heads up.
