Meta Madness: Film Site Funnies


Tristram Shandy site

This would have to be one of the funniest film sites I’ve seen. It is a ‘meta site’, a site about an apparent actual site for the film Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story. The film is about making the film about the novel the film is based on — whichis entirely in the style of the Laurence Sterne’s novel. You can read the emails between the staff as they discuss the site construction, the production of the DVD and reviews of the film. You can listen to voice mails, listen to a talk by the director, look at pics. The joke even continues into the forums. A “real site” is also linked to. The ‘voice’ of the site is in sync with the voice of film and the novel, but what I love about it too is it makes finding information FUN. Check out the trailer at
