In Soviet Russia, Film Silences You!

This week was a little busy for me, so I still haven't been able to see The Artist. I'm a big fan of silent films, so I'm excited to see a modern take on the silent film genre. However, since I haven't been able to make it to the theaters, I've been making my own silent movies by using The Artistifier. The Artistifier, sent in by alert reader, Jeff, takes any YouTube video you can find and turns it into a silent movie. You, then become the director and choose what the actors are saying and where the captions should go.

Need an example, faithful readers? Ok, then.

Remember that Russian Trolololo video from a while back? Well, I took that heart-warming video, uploaded it to The Artistifier, and made it into a deep, award-winning film about one man's existential view of his own mortality and his hubristic downfall. . .or just added the first thing that came to my mind as I watched the video.

Click on the box below and check it out:

I know, right? Deep stuff. You should be shaking in your boots, D.W. Griffith!

Give it a shot yourself. Find a YouTube video, turn it into a silent film and then post it in the comments section on this site for everyone to see.

Happy silenting!

I was really looking forward to watching your silent film but it fails to load. Says the uploader is too mean. :-(

Well that stinks. I don't know why it's doing that. . .

At least you can still make your own silent masterpiece.
