Psycho Shower Scene Recreated From Amateur YouTube Videos

The iconic shower scene from Psycho, reconstructed with clips taken from various amateur remakes on YouTube.

Snip from the description of the short:

All 55 shots sourced from a different YouTube remake and recombined with the original sound to create Hitchcock’s literal death as an author. Each version reinvents the meaning of the scene and the intention behind it (from imitation to intervention).

Of particular note are the reversals of gender which greatly complicate Hitchcock’s authorship and place within dominant ideological flows.
