Is The Last 3 Minutes just a rip-off of Last Day Dream?
The Last 3 Minutes, a DSLR short from director Po Chang, reminds me a bit too strongly of a video released a year ago by director Chris Milk, entitled Last Day Dream. Even the titles are similar! Both videos are shot in their entirety from a first-person perspective, enabled by the small size and maneuverability of the DSLR du jour, the 5d Mark II. Here they are in chronological order (Last Day Dream was released a year before The Last 3 Minutes). NSFW language in the former:
Last Day Dream by Chris Milk
The Last 3 Minutes by Po Chang
What do you think? Is The Last 3 Minutes a blatant rip-off of Last Day Dream, or is it just coincidence? Could this be an instance of cryptomnesia? Which video do you like more?
