8:22 for the GLORIOUS RAP!
In this history project presentation-turned-video, Basil Ornenthorpe and Octavian Milner III return to the screen to offer their intensely verbose insights on the authoritarian rule of Joseph Stalin. Oh, and there's a rap near the end you shouldn't miss, featuring two proud members of the Red Army.
It's quite dry at times, but USSRap makes up for it at the end.
Надеюсь, вам понравится фильм!
Research was done over the span of several days, script finalization and filming was completed over approximately 12 hours, and the cutting and effects took over 11 hours, until the editor grew semi-complacent with the results.
Credits are at the end of the video, before the bloopers. Chicago-style citations of works used in the filmmaking process are listed below.
