There has recently been a hashtag trending on Twitter that focuses around removing a single letter from a film title to create a new and humourous result, #filmswithonelettermissing. Needless to say, it has proven to be very popular, trending for a number of days and spawning a huge number of suggestions, many complete with photoshopped images for the newly created films. Coincidentally, this is something that illustrator Austin Light was doing for the month of October, long before the hashtag started. His Inktober 2014 series features a different drawing for each day of the month, using the film typos of social networking site Reddit as subject matter.
This resulted in a collection of 31 hilariously witty images, each complete with a short altered synopsis for the new film. Below are a few of my favourites, you can view the whole set here.
Obocop – The story of how a police officer works through his PTSD and adjusts to his new robotic implants with the help of the sexy soothing sound of his oboe.
Finding Emo – An insufferable teenage fish runs away from home. His father contemplates searching for him.
Jurassic Par – Two dinosaurs set out to prove they’re more than just killing machines. Thanks to a loophole in the rules they find a spot on the PGA tour and golf their way to the top of the food chain.
Harry Otter – A young boy finds out who, and what, he is. Magic ensues.
Alen – The story of a lonely cashier named Alen who yearns for something more. Something like eating astronauts.
