Yesterday, a pair of University of British Columbia students got to chat for ten minutes with Inception director Christopher Nolan. All because their video entry in a contest sponsored by Canadian mobile services provider WIND was judged the best.
The video by Yuri Cabrera and Ian Holliday (pictured) runs just over a minute. FishbowlLA thinks what probably won them the prized connection with Nolan is their hilarious vocal imitations of Hans Zimmer‘s colossal Inception bass chords. The pair of third-year film students told CTV News that Nolan advised them to enjoy their artistic freedom while they can:
“He told us to enjoy filmmaking while you’re in a situation to be free to film-make, because once you get in a studio and big budget movies, while they’re bigger films, you’re also fighting to have the freedom you had when you were a student filmmaker,” Holliday said.
