Spiffing Review: 48 Hour Review

Simon and Wayne return (again!) in a slightly re-jigged format of Spiffing Review.

Leaving other film reviewers to deal with the mainstream movies, Spiffing Review will now take a look at independent films. This episode takes a look at the 48 Hour Film challenge as organised by Sci-Fi London. As well as taking a look at the top 10 films to make the 2011 shortlist, Simon and Wayne are joined by Christopher Puttock, director of It’s A Trap!s entry, Temporary Status, who gives us his thoughts on the film making process.

You’ll be glad to hear that the “Trailer Park” has survived into the new format with trailers reviewed for:

  • When Harry Tries to Marry
  • TrollHunter
  • High Cost of Living
  • The Bleeding House
  • Brother’s Justice

Arms Race as part of Sci-Fi London 2011

This weekend sees the first viewing of Arms Race on a cinema screen.

We have been lucky enough to be included in the Sci-Fi London 2011 Shorts Programme 1.  Arms Race will be shown with 11 other short films from around the world on Monday 25th April at the Apollo Cinema in Piccadilly Circus.
A few of us will be making the trip to London to see Arms Race in it’s full big screen glory, so why not come along and join us.

The Making of Arms Race

Here’s something cool: a 42 page behind-the-scenes book taking a look at the making of our 2010 short film Arms Race.

Here’s a 15 page preview:

You can buy it direct from in hardback or paperback by clicking the ‘buy’ button just above, or by clicking here. We’re selling the book at production cost, so we don’t make any actual profit from it.
