WATCH: Sam Neill and Helena Bonham Carter release a fun short made in isolation

May 24th, 2020 by Marc Comments

If there’s one good thing about isolation, it’s seeing just how creative people can be.

And it seems that that extends to celebs too, from fan watch-a-longs to microfilms made on a budget.

And the latest slice of awesome comes from two of FTN’s favourite actors of all time, the great Sam Neill and the awesome Helena Bonham Carter who star in the short movie Das Fone Hell.

Described by Neill as: “At vast expense, filmed on two continents over what (seemed like) five years , this profound and heartbreakingly candid insight into Modern Life will shake you to the core (Pilates 101).”

The movie, released on Twitter tackles the themes of life, isolation and… the internet.

It’s a lot of fun and a welcome diversion in these crazy times.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
