The particular universe of critical of movies on YouTube has always had its audience. Many columnistsfor the most part, young YouTubers have been able to make a place for themselves on this stage, yet soon saturated. So what better than a brand new original concept to arouse curiosity and rekindle the interest of the audience?
Fictional characters who speak to us about fiction is the concept of the Youtube channelChronik Fiction. Born from an unprecedented mix of cinema and web chronicle, here is The Coroner. This is the first character of this project. Forensic scientist, cinephile and cynic, he autopsy for you the most prominent deaths of pop culture.
# 1 - Battle Royale
At the origin of the project,Mike Zonnenberg & Fabio Soares, multiproduced authors / directors in the world of short films, and formerly artistic directors in advertising. A detonating duo, who has not finished surprising us with their work!
The concept is presented as novel in the French YouTube landscape, where everything starts to look alike. of the short videos and rhythmic, a worked staging, a charismatic narrator and a modern analysis ... These are the ingredients of this chronicled cine of a new genre. Designed as a real Miniseries, this new format reinvents the codes of a standardized exercise: the web chronicle. The columnist himself is a fictional character, offering the viewer a totally original video format on the web.
# 2 - Scarface
But it's also a modern analysis proposed by The Coroner, because it brings us a new point of view on iconic deaths. Endowed with a great sense of analysis and observation, he gives us their secrets and explains the reasons for their impact on pop culture. Why Tony Montana did he become the prophet of rap? How the film Battle Royale did he inspire the game Fortnite ? This approach allows the project to enter the era of time, while addressing major movies in the history of cinema. Coroner's theories allow younger people to discover these worksand the older ones, to rediscover them.
Similarly, Chronik Fiction is the heiress of cults references, from yesterday to today. The Tales of the Crypt and Alfred Hitchcock have of course been precursors in this style of narration. Series characters or movie characters like Frank Underwood (House of Cards) or the Woman with the Log (Twin Peaks) have also broke the wall separating the viewer from fiction by speaking directly to the camera.
# 3 - The Lion King
On the digital, YouTubers like The Movie Slayer or Karim Debbache and his show Chroma have introduced the first elements of "scriptwriting" of chronicles on the cinema, without never really crossing the cape and give the floor to a true character of fiction.
In any case, here, the realization changes much of what we can see usually, and in many ways. That it is at the level of the artistic direction, the narration, the casting, as well as the decoration, one sees well that the devil is in the details. Everything is "clean", well calculated, realized, and the result is felt! To date, the channel is already counting 112,903 subscribers, only 2 months after the very first episode. A great success that we can not wait to follow! In the meantime, we invite you to visit the YouTube page of the project.
# 4 - Twin Peaks
