“The Other Fellow” Trailer – A ‘Special’ James Bond Documentary
In early 2012 director and viral video maker Matthew Bowyer embarked on a surreal journey. Interested in producing a Youtube video about a real person called James Bond experiencing the release of Skyfall he jumped on Facebook, Google and LinkedIn one evening and contacted hundreds of real James Bond’s from around the world.
The next morning he awoke to find his inboxes flooded with messages from James Bond, James Bond, James Bond and so on. Bond’s who had a litany of Seinfeld-ian nightmares to share about the day-to-day life of being James Bond from airport security to nosey waiters to being banned by Facebook and impossible to find on Google. Bond’s who had enjoyed and taken advantage of the name. And most importantly men who had experienced crazy adventures more befitting of their famous alter ego from being apprehended by homeland security to being shot by the police for being James Bond.
It didn’t take long to realise that one Bond was not enough and a few months later a small crew departed from Australia to travel the globe and tell their stories.
The result is The Other Fellow.
