Lessons From the Screenplay celebrates 1M subscribers with Adaptation analysis/parody

Video essayist Michael Tucker's YouTube channel Lessons From the Screenplay recently hit the 1 million subscriber mark, and he celebrated in a pretty nifty way: by analysing Adaptation, in the form of a short film about Tucker trying to figure out how to make a video analysing Adaptation. Surpisingly it's actually pretty great!

Self-referential work is really easy to create (I say this from personal experience, and from seeing a lot of stuff inspired by Adaptation), but it's difficult to do well (also personal experience and seeing a lot of it in my Inbox) and it's always much better if there's a reason for going all self-referential. This one ticks the boxes. Plus Tucker gives some good insight into Charlie's film, which is the point of the whole thing.
