Videopia – It’s “Sweding” Jim, but not as we know it.

Have you ever seen Be Kind Rewind? If the answer is yes then you must have thought it was pretty cool making all those low budget versions of big blockbuster movies. Videopia is the only club that lets you do just that and all in one night out.

Started by Harry Knowles at the Notting Hill Arts Club, Videopia allows you to star in your favourite film, complete with costume, props and special effects, albiet very limited ones. So far the team have successfully “sweded” such cult classics as Back to the Future, E.T. and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. This month is was Ghostbusters and Cult Friction even took part in a few scenes. The nights popularity lies in its interacticity. Anyone can have a go if they want and the crowd love to see some of the more elaborate special effects scenes recreated in front of them. Whats more, if you and your friends have attempted a remake of a film then Videopia will be happy to screen it in front of a loving crowd.

Videopia is a sure fire hit and plans to continue over the summer with plans to film The Wizard of Oz and Jaws in the next few months. For more information on Videopia and to see some of their previous projects click here http://www.youtube.com/videopiauk
