Diary: Naked poses no threat to Scorsese or Scott

Those multitalented chaps down at Naked Communications have turned their hand to short-film-making.

Last week was the inaugural Untitled Anonymous short-film event, which saw the showcasing of films made by the Naked staff.

The 31 short films have now been posted online (at www.vimeo.com/channels/untitledanonymous09) but Diary has to say the efforts of the senior team make for mixed viewing.

While the founding partner Jon Wilkins has at least attempted to find his inner auteur by fitting video of his babies laughing to the sound of The Benny Hill Show theme, others have been less imaginative.

But we liked the masterpiece by Wilkins' fellow partner, Will Collin. Called Out Of Paper, it features a deranged Collin ranting "fuck, fuck, fuck" at a photocopier.

Awards at next year's Cannes and Venice film festivals beckon.
