Sweded films

A Swede film is the brief re-creation of a popular film, using an extremely low budget and a camcorder into a short movie usually between 4 and 10 minutes. The process of making the film itself is known as "Sweding" and once the film has been made, you would say that the film has been "Sweded".

 Origins: In the Michel Gondry film Be Kind, Rewind (2008), the character Jerry accidentally erase the videotapes at Mos Def's video rental store, and the pair remake all the films themselves. These versions become popular with customers, who are told they take longer to arrive and cost more because they come from Sweden, hence the term 'sweded'.

After watching sweded films on YouTube, I found that these were some of my favourites:

An idea for a re-make would be to do the classic 1982 movie ...........E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. It is an iconic movie known by everyone and even if you have not personally seen it you know what it's about.

Another idea would be Jaws, very simple to do with a couple of bottles of ketchup, some cardboard cut-outs and some really bad acapella theme tunes.
