Tropfest 2013

The 2013 version of Australian Tropfest took place a couple of nights ago. It was won by Nicholas Clifford for We’ve All Been There, a short film which explores the idea of shared kindness through goodwill and pay-it-forward style ethics. 
A young woman in need gets a dose of kindness from someone who experienced it herself.
You can watch the video here.



Meanwhile, here's another short film made by Clay Walker called The Chain of Love. He made it back in 1999. See if you can spot any similarities...

Don't the judges check for prior art?

Exactly the same story! Of course, you can't copyright an idea, and with a well known music clip, the filmmaker would have expected the judges to know it was a reinterpretation. It looks like an urban legend so even the music clip may not have been the original story. Very nice, anyway.
