Comment from team: 
This year we had scaled our team right back to 4 members. We decided to make this film for a friend of ours who wasn't able to film with us this year. Everything bar the first scene was filmed on Sunday after what seemed a rather lazy start on Friday night and a failed attempt on Saturday. We all came into this pretty shattered from extremely busy weeks before hand and it didn't even feel like 48 hours until Sunday morning. That said, we really enjoyed ourselves this year. A lot of laughs.

I actually really enjoyed this one, the banter and relationship between the two duck hunter characters was a highlight of the all the heats, I'm looking forward to seeing this when it hits the screening room.

not sure if they really did the genre justice but I cant complain. pretty simple film and they pulled it off.

really the characters at the end where fantastic, the way one character kept shutting down the other was simply fantastic.


The more I think about this film, the more I love it.

It starts out kind of slow, but then this concept is completely ditched and replaced with some of the funniest banter I've ever heard between two hillbillies. The one guy telling the other to 'shush' constantly nearly had me in tears, It had the same energy as an improvised scene, but the dialogue was so informative while also being hilarious that it had to have been scripted.

This could be my favourite Chch city finalist, just because of it's bizarre progression and almost downright upheaval of storytelling structure. It's simply good for a laugh.


A guy is lured into chasing a loaf of bread by a couple of local-yokel hunters.

I liked the simplicity of this, the long take, the match cuts and some of the banter between the hunters. More of skit then anything else though and only loosely "Cat and Mouse" (as indicated on the title screen). I understand how this film made the CHCH finals but I'm sure I've seen better films this year that missed out. Well done to the film-makers though, you had fun and made the film you wanted to make, which has my respect!
