Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with this week's picks for short films I think you might want to check out. Every week is a grab bag of surprises and with that, we've got five films that couldn't be further from one another stylistically here. Horror, drama, Sci-Fi... it's all here - all locked, loaded, and ready to be fired at your virgin eyes. So without further ado, let's skip over the small talk and dive head first into these unique films!
Go grab yourself some popcorn, lock your kids in a closet, kill the lights, relax and check out this little weekly film fest we've got ourselves here:
Let's start off with a whimsical tale of terror from Sebastian Lee.
Up next is a total gear shift from TINY DANCER. With us now is a drama from J.D. Amato. "Spacewalk is a short film that follows a young man in a wheelchair who, as part of an unlikely dream to become an astronaut, attempts to walk for the first time." If you like the film, then get yourself over to its website!
Next up is a new film from Saturday Shorts Alumn Cameron McCulloch about bullies. "SISSY BOY is a short film about two high school friends who are terrorized by a local bully and what happens when the victims become the bullies themselves." Be sure to check out the film's Facebook page.
Ready for some freaky deaky horror to chill your bones? Bam! Colin Clarke has a pretty fun horror film just for you. "After putting a witch to death, a righteous witch hunter finds himself haunted by a spectral curse in this award-winning horror tale inspired by Hammer films, Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci." If you're interested in more from Colin, check out the film's Facebook page or follow the guy on Twitter "@daredevilfilms."
And to send us out on a high note, we've got a creeper of a film from Roshan Murthy. "A man attempts to digitally resurrect his deceased mother."
Alright, alright, alright - that's it for this week ladies and gents. I'll catch you all back next week with more fun films for your viewing pleasures! Have a great week - I'll see you folks later.
If you have a short and think it belongs here or are on the fence about whether to send it in, please do send it in - I'd love to see what you've put together. I've already seen hundreds of fresh new filmmakers' shorts and like any good addict, I need more!
Shoot me an email at "Mike@aintitcool.com"
In the subject line include:
“SHORTS” + “Your film’s name” + “The film’s genre”
Then, in the body of the email, please include a synopsis of the film and any contact information you might think I need or would want published. The more info you send my way, the more info there is to put with your short.
Please don’t feel the need to submit multiple times.
Remember, the filmmakers might still be in the audience, so feel free to share your thoughts in Talkbacks below. (JUST DON'T BE AN ASSHOLE). I picked them, so you know I think highly of all of these, but how about you fine folks? How'd you like 'em?
BY THE WAY: If you've had a short featured here, that means that I personally am a fan of your work, so feel free to shoot me any kind of news on new projects/films/whatever. I can't say I'll be able to help or in what capacity, but I'm interested in your work and am always down to see more! (Keep making cool stuff, everyone!)
