A Groundhod Day/Run Lola Run take on the mundane routine of a young kitchen hand.
This film had some great prop choices, including the toaster/time machine; and the main character was fantastic, a great mixture of humor and sympathy.
Unfortunately, while starting strong this film suffered from a plot that didn't quite go anywhere, and what resolution there was seemed to jar with the tone of the rest of the film.

Lots of positives here. The lead was a likeable-loser type who really nailed it. The red, low key lighting during the time machine creation scene was creative and not something that is often attempted in student films - so props for that alone. The plot was promising, but then ended up screwing over our loveable loser hero whereas I was pulling for him to come out on top some how. Still enjoyable overall though - there was clearly a lot of effort put into this short film.
