Sherlock Holmes in the Case of the Mysterious Mystery

For my Giant Stories/Tiny Screens final, I decided to revisit the mashup. My previous mashup combined a 1940s public service announcement with Night of the Living Dead–which worked very well because the juxtaposition of two opposing themes (giving money to the United Hospital Fund vs. zombies) is quite funny. So, for this project I decided to do something a little different– take a whole lot of the same thing, splice it together to see if it makes sense (or becomes funny when the formulaic elements are obvious). I took six episodes of the 1954 television version of Sherlock Homes and mashed them all together into one bewildering episode.

A Call for Help

The title of this assignment is “Remix.” And so, remix I did. I used footage from archive.org (really one of my favorite web sites) and mashed-up a few public service announcements from the 40s with Night of the Living Dead.

So very very much fun to do! In fact, I feel like I might have a knack for this kind of nonsense and will probably make some more things like it. (Zombies!!)
