Live Cinema UK were delighted to work once again with The Redux Project at SXSW 2019, commissioning the official Redux of Office Space (1999). Artist Richard DeDomenici launched The Redux Project as an attempt to disrupt cinema by making counterfeit sections of popular films. So far it’s taken him to London, Berlin, Bangkok, Sydney, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing & more. Filming in original locations with local amateur casts, and using whatever resources are to hand, his versions have often received better reviews than the originals.
As part of our official activity at SXSW 2019, Live Cinema UK and Richard set about redux-ing Mike Judge’s 90’s American classic. Alongside the film’s shoot and premiere at the festival, the Live Cinema UK team and Richard also took part in a panel (The Redux Project: Remaking Movies on a Shoestring) all about the project.
Thank you to everyone who took part in Office Space: Redux. Check out the final film:
Here’s a few of our favourite behind the scenes images from the shoot:
It’s the second time that Live Cinema UK have worked with Richard on a Redux. In June 2018, both parties headed to Sheffield Doc/Fest and set about redux-ing apolcalyptic war drama Threads (1984). After a city-wide call out for participants, the piece was shot and premiered at the festival. Having originally been shot in Sheffield, extras from the 1984 film were present to appear in the redux too. Check out the final film:
