Indiana Jones lampooned as âMiniana Jonesâ in new comedy film âParody Movieâ
Online PR News – 25-September-2011 – – Hollywood, CA â What would Indiana Jones be like if he were 6 inches tall and worked in a bowling alley? Thatâs the plot behind âMiniana Jones and the Bowling Alley of Doomâ a short comedy sketch from the larger feature film âParody Movie.â When a bowling pin gets stuck in the gutter, the tiny Miniana Jones pushes it free. He quickly finds himself in peril as a bowling ball hurls toward him at full speed!
âIâve been a huge fan of Indiana Jones since I was a kid,â says Director Charles Dewandeler, âhe is a larger-than-life adventure hero, so I thought it would be funny to spoof him as a miniature bowling alley employee.â Originally from Michigan, Dewandeler moved to Los Angeles almost four years ago to pursue a career in film. He wrote and directed âParody Movieâ as a way to spoof and pay homage to his favorite films including Batman, Superman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and many more.
The budget for âParody Movieâ was much smaller than most movies, but that didnât stop Charles Dewandeler and his crew from creating the visual effects necessary for a 6 inch tall Miniana Jones. âWe used what we had available, green screen effects, clever camera angles and editing tricks to bring Miniana Jones to life,â says Dewandeler, âand itâs all worth it when you see the final product.â
âMiniana Jones and the Bowling Alley of Doomâ is now available for free viewing online. âWe hope that by sharing a few short scenes from âParody Movieâ, it will inspire people to buy the whole movie on Amazon.com,â says Dewandeler.
