Our Footloose Remake is a 2010 crowd-funded parody film and a collaborative effort between a variety of amateur filmmakers brought together by the film community known as Channel 101. David Seger and Tim Marklevitz served as the film's producers.
Development of the film originally began as a snarky response to Hollywood's 2008 announcement of an official remake of the 1984 film Footloose.
The project divided the original 1984 film into 54 different scenes, giving each one to a different set of filmmakers who would recreate their given scene in their own unique way.
Once all scenes were done, they were edited into a complete film with conflicting stylistic choices between scenes being played for comedic effect.
Channel 101 would follow-up Our Footloose Remake with Our Robocop Remake, a response to the official 2014 remake of Robocop.
The film premiered at the Downtown Independent Theatre in Los Angeles on July 1st, 2010 and was later uploaded to David Seger's Vimeo account on April 11th, 2011.
The film was eventually taken down on April 17th, 2018 via a copyright claim from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
For a while, the complete film was unavailable online or on physical media. A handful of scenes have been uploaded to Youtube and Vimeo by their respective filmmakers, totalling 18 out of 54 scenes found.
