Library Revolutions Video

25 Sep

I am totally a sucker for cheesy library-related videos. This promotional video for the University of Kansas’ library is a spoof of the Matrix and definitely has a professional quality to it! I’m not quite sure who its target audience is though because it seems a bit too long to hold the attention of busy students. Nonetheless it is really well done and it would be cool if McGill had a video like this! The director of this video is Emmy-winner Chris Martin who was a film student at the University of Kansas. He has also produced another pretty awesome library spoof video called Lord of the Libraries.

Very cool stuff!

    Very cool! I bet we’d get more questions at the desk if our reference librarians dressed like that one. 😛

      My favourite part is in the Lord of the Librarians video when they describe Bookwraiths as being librarians who refused to adapt to new technologies and were eventually banished from the library!
