Chaplin undercranking study – boxing

Here’s a clip I just (finally) uploaded to YouTube. It’s one of the studies I did for my talk at the Clown Theater Festival last fall, Undercranking: The Magic Behind the Slapstick. There are a few others I need to record narration for, render and upload. Chaplin seems to be the master of this technique of creating a gag that would only appear funny or to even be a gag when the film is run faster.
