I've never seen this before: It's a very short film about a ... situation that takes place on the 405 freeway in LA. Funny, and amazingly well done.
On their web site
, the directors discuss the fact that the film was done at home, by two guys (OK, they are
Hollywood effects professionals) on personal computers:
"A lot of the things we did on 405 -- the tools and techniques we used to do the effects, the sound, the editing-- are on par with what big productions are doing...except we did it at home. It's about the tools of filmmaking finally becoming affordable to anyone."
-- Jeremy Hunt
"What 405 means to me, is that it is now possible to create almost anything you can imagine. It's no longer just big studio films
that can create blockbuster images on film. That was George Lucas's vision years ago, that one day anyone would be able to put their ideas on film, and today anyone can."
-- Bruce Branit
