Who says social media is a waste of time? Graphic artist James Curran used it to showcase his fan-made credits for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. In a strange twist of fate, Steven Spielberg saw his video, loved it and offered him a job!

Does James Curran's story sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. The news was confirmed by Edgar Wright, who's one of the screenwriters on The Adventures of Tintin. He announced on Twitter that Spielberg saw Curran's work and was extremely impressed. He invited the artist to the film's world premiere, and also gave him a job on his next movie. How outstanding is that?

In Curran's Tintin video, he uses elements from each of the 24 books to make a fast-paced character montage. After watching it once, you can easily see why it caught Spielberg's eye—he's got chops!

You can watch Curran's fan-made credit sequence below.
