Job Security

My second favourite thing about Job Security is how watchable it is. It felt as smooth as a well-produced TV show (unless I'm mistaken due to the contrast of more jarring 48 Hours entries). Certainly one of those 48 Hours films that could stand on it's own right, outside of the competition. The best thing about this short was the characters. Funny, relatable and believable. Tackling the robot/AI genre without the common cliche of fear. Make sure you watch this one.

Lost & Found

This is the first film that comes to mind (the day after) when thinking about my heat. It might just be me, but I really liked the use of the line (What have you got?). It's the most natural fit for a 48 line that I can recall. I believed the characters, the location, the floorboards and the predicament. Oh, and it was beautiful. Nice job guys.

Off the Cuff

This short kept me entertained. It's not the most creative in terms of genre, elements or story but it was well produced and kept me laughing the whole way through. Some nice performances from the leads.

6A

I really like the title. Simple, but it manages to convey both the subject and, after seeing the film, a pretty intense feeling of frustration. I thought it was a great take on the revenge genre - often when it is brought back to real life falls a little flat - but not this time. Funny & a plot that kept me interested. Plus bonus points for the costume department.

I'm A Horse

This took me a while to realise where it was going. It bordered on nonsense. I felt there was little explanation of what happened. And I enjoyed the hell out of it. Nice work Balls McGee. I hope this is the last 48 Hours film anyone ever makes with a horse mask, because ya'll nailed it. Fun, surprising and maybe my favourite POV shot of the competition.
