DIRT DEVIL – THE EXORCIST
Based on William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist”, we show with this film what really happened. A priest is called to an abandoned house and got surprised when entering the room of the seemingly possessed daughter.
The spot was produced during my second year at the Film Academy and created an unbelievable buzz around the world. The film took the internet by storm and recorded more than 10 million views on Vimeo after one month. Meanwhile, we have reached over 30 million views. The film was named the 5th most watched online video in 2011. A vast number of blogs, forums and industry media reported on the devilish work. The film was shown in TV-Shows around the world and also on the big screen in cinemas at the Fantasy Film Festival in Germany. In addition the film was aired at the TED Global Conference, the Saatchi & Saatchi Directors Showcase and won the Young Directors Award 2011 in Cannes.
