Morgalison

A great idea with some nice fx and some fantastic melodrama. I liked the set-up, albeit pretty ridiculous. Leaned over to my friend and whispered that she should have just killed the other woman if she's taking over her life, otherwise things get tricky. (Called it.) The bread knives had us laughing a lot. Enjoyed your use of split-screen too. Not too sure why we all had to slice our own throats in a Fight Club manner, but that's ok. At least there was some 8-ball mystery to finish it off.

At it like rabbits

Insane. Wonderful. Horrible. Great. Shit. A stop-motion animation that compels you, pulls you in, then teases you by being fucken nuts. Sweet massacres. Ending was random as hell. Thanks for making this.

Edge of the Circle

This film was pretty hilarious. Some shockingly funny acting, some STI seduction, a horrific accent, a variety of people kicking back in a spa... Over the top, rough, and wonderful.

The Truth Hurts

I really liked your film. My favourite parts were the bookends, with the guy turning up at home then coming out from the garage. Lovely ending with his revelation being just that last nail in the coffin for his girlfriend. Also points for super-beard. Acting was close but no cigar, especially from our lead. Some nice camera action though.

Third Wheel

Very funny film, with ultra-creepy hitch-hiker (creepiness heightened even more by the horrific / incredible ADR) getting revenge on childhood bully. Some cheesy-as-hell dialogue ("Looks like the car's stopping") that totally worked with the lack of sync. Killer last line, as mentioned by the other reviews. A great lo-fi 48 short.

Waiting for God. Oh!

A one-room film mixed in with fad (?) about the forthcoming rapture. Bishop Bobby gets us off to a slow start delivering his sermon among some good gags (Chastity being my favourite, the hip-flask sipping wife was good too). Overall I found it entertaining and with a sharp sense of humour. The background music was well-done. I did find it a bit too talky though, which wasn't helped by poor dialogue levels. Good ending.

Nobody Looks Like Their Profile Picture

Nice idea with this story and some really sweet comedy. Enjoyed the first computer scenes of the internet flirting, and loved the main guy transforming himself into Red for Bed. I didn't realise at all that this was a race-against-the-clock film though, so not sure if the genre could consider itself nailed. Liked the clumsy characterisation of the lead female. In the end I was pleased the protagonist failed, thinking that he didn't deserve the win he was after. I enjoyed watching him, though. The lead actress was really fun.

Jack & Jill

Competently shot and put together, this was a pretty gentle and easy-going film. You could argue that turning up to a paid appointment with someone to fix your mental issues isn't really 'dating' as such, but solo-ma seemed up for it at the end so his bravery maybe won her over. Pretty rough of her to make him come to her for an agoraphobia counseling session, really...!

The Deliveryer

The film lived up to the promise of its title. Very funny, incredibly random, pretty cheesey, and quite silly. Won the audience over pretty quickly and had a lot of great moments scattered through-out. Well done guys, hope you make the finals.

Pass Card

First of all, nice work on keeping it short! Getting more and more into nice tight stories for 48HOURS. Thought the start was great, with an awesome match-cut and well-staged humping. Like others, I thought he was pulling off a condom post-pee, which was odd, then realised it was gum. Does gum come out of pubes that easily? Maybe scissors instead of a comb... I liked the guy embracing his new identity and the girl seeing him again without the booze-goggles. All in all a nice simple and amusing short, good work.

I loved this. The camera work and voiceover were both fantastic. Such a simple idea - like one of those 2-sentence horror stories that float around Facebook. A really cool concept of taking revenge on the product instead of the person that the revenge should hit. The accent of the voiceover kept me laughing throughout. When the title came up, I leaned over to the guy next to me to ask the genre, and then instead of the film kicking in, it just stopped. For a moment I was stunned but in hindsight, I really like it ending when it did. So many questions! Excellent mood creation. My #2 on Aud Choice.
