Eraserhead In 60 Seconds (And With Clay)

Eraserhead clay

If you’ve seen David Lynch’s debut feature film, Eraserhead and are still wondering what the hell you really saw, or if you don’t have the guts to go through this 85-minute cinematic nightmare, I got you covered with these two 60-second remakes (via).

First we have Martin Funke reenacting the movie’s key scenes in a one-minute compilation, which was submitted for the German ‘Done in 60 seconds’ Jameson Empire Award 2011. Martin’s 10 days of work paid off with a spot in the top 10!

As if Eraserhead wasn’t trippy enough, here’s a 60 seconds, stop-motion recap entirely made with clay. Props to claymation pro Lee Hardcastle for this work of  art!

I do recommend the surreal feature film to all David Lynch fans. Ever since 1977, there’s been nothing like it. Did you know it took 5 years to complete this film? At one point, Henry opens a door and ages 18 months between cuts! Actor Jack Nance (Pete Martell in Twin Peaks) even kept his Lynchian hairdo for the entire filming period!

Finally, here’s another Eraserhead homage, in paper and clay by Jason Deehr:
