Very awesome guys - loved the split screen use and your animation style, especially considering it's created in 48 hours! Great jokes / gags throughout. High quality, huge laughs!

Good work guys! loved this concept. Felt the monster coming - but that didn't take away from the story at all. The arrogant dude was well played and backed up by his mates, mad him hate-able enough to enjoy his demise at the end.
Keep up the good writing!

Great way to end the heat last night - grins all around.
I wondered if you guys might have had issues with you original idea and then this got smashed out in an hour or two?
Titles and graphic overlays produced laughs at the right time, loved the "one room" concept and the hoodlum looked like he was having a good everyone did.
Glad to see this make it in!

Nice one guys, classic NBN style & humour. It's really interesting to see how many people went down the TV show angle this year across the heats. Yours is the best I've seen.
Lovable quirky characters with a simple premise wins every time. Keep it up as always!

Nice work guys - the Heist genre is difficult and quite hard to not fall into the mission impossible trope. To bring something unique and interesting - good on you!
Let down by the technicals and the pacing was a bit slow. Would have loved to see some kind of ramp up in the heists and some sort of twist ending.
Keep it up guys!

This film was really clever - loved the stalker's attitude throughout, he was just a nice guy haha.
You guys have done a really good job - timing and pacing felt nice. Acting was tight and the edit worked well to tell the story.
Keep it up!

Quite a large idea to get into 5 mins - it can be hard to establish a relationship and tempting to fill in the blanks with dialogue. Good on you for not going into detail about the time travel pills - that would have been un-necessary. I liked the open ending and the bath scene was well acted... quite believable.

Definitely entertaining, who doesn't like a good blood bath. Loved the ending - keep it up guys...

What can I say that hasn't already been said by the film itself! this beast was really fun and in the spirit of the comp "just get it done" attitude.
Bloody hilarious moments throughout and you were clearly tired by the end! loved the baby dalek style high chairs, loved the home-made props - this is the sort of film that gets talked about for weeks.
Awesome work.

Very tight production here as always from Little Old Lady - I always look forward to your work guys.
Cool to see a different angle on the android / techno-takeover theme. Really loved the establishing shots throughout - helped with pace and time. Beautiful location and well acted once again.
Well done !

Really well done guys, strong acting and cinematography. Tight edit, with alot of work gone into rotoscoping throughout. Loved the hanging / dopey looks from your main.
The ghost guide was a hit too and well performed!
Good comedic timing and the story holds up even with some minor errors. Audience seemed to enjoy it.

Well done team - a magical jacket that guides people toward a better life.

Good little concept with a clear and concise narration. Well shot and edited, this is a clear strength for you.
Slow-mo is very "in" right now and you guys made good use of it.
Good to see another angle on this trope / genre - keep up the good work guys

This one I was thinking about on the way home - loved it.
The special effects were spot on and reminiscent of Bad Taste - blended with some good old Back of the Y.
Great humor throughout and I won't lie - my eyes closed on reflex as that paper cut came in haha. Shit.
Overall - loved the concept....must have been a real blast to make / destroy.
Keep it up lads.

Very clever and some great acting from the lead....would have loved to see his alien hands make another appearance - they looked great.
Few little continuity things going on - maybe some of the ordering was an after thought?

Cute ending and good chemistry all around - audience loved it.

Very clever little film - lots of laughs and the audience lapped it up.
The ending was spot on and each post-credit shot helped fill in a well rounded little tale. Great acting from everyone.


This was a pretty tight little short - gave a-lot to think about in 5 mins and threw up some real "what if" moments.
Well shot and edited with some room for polish - but that's what 48 is all about.
Good acting all around and really liked the theme music during the break in - perfectly placed.
Keep it up team!

Nice work guys, a fun little flick from a team who seems to always have a great time making films together.
Some really nice sequences and thoughtful costumes in this one. Loved the classic baby powder in the hair. In the longer shots - you gugs actually looked pretty old!
Hamsters are a nice touch!

A cute little flick - well done guys...

The film really started when the young dude said "my ankle got hurt" ahhhh .... here we go haha.
Loved how the poor young lady go dealt to all the way to getting pizza and ended up carrying them back home half clutching them sideways. The ending was good too - poor thing.
Must have been shot on a few different cameras? (maybe cellphones?) as the aspect kept switching back and forth.

This is what 48 hours is all about... just getting it done... telling good stories!
Keep it up

Expected something completely different based on the team intro - maybe the contrast here was too much?
Well shot and acting was on point....took me a little while to work out who each character was and what their angle was....these can be tricky themes to play with and requires really thoughtful writing. Maybe could have used a flashback or other supplement to help drive the narrative home.
Well done guys - very swish.

Really stylish looking film - the effects and graphics were pretty swish - you do have to search the screen for some of the identifiers though. This is a good opportunity to help tell parts of the story visually.
Wasn't too keen on the needed to ramp up a few more notches so the dude could flip out .... making tea wrong just didn't really seem like a good excuse to lose it.
Loved the concept though and the perspective is awesome. Great to see something pretty unique in the comp - well done guys.

Well thought out guys - a good ol' switch-a-roo style flick.
Wasn't sure what happened at the end ? (car hit) but either way - this was clever and a cool little twist on the trope.
Keep it up

Yip, classic Dragon v Mouse.... and we all loved it.
The baby was a standout and this film sticks in my memory until this morning. Clever timing and V/O from the "baby"
Loved the brutality going on around him and he just goes with it - kinda a good reflection of how we all seem to wander through the world...making up our own narrative and rationalization for the disturbing things that happen all around us.

Nice one guys, love your stuff

Nailed the genre guys - a perfect "Highschool" flick.
Love the technique and exploration into different ways to freeze time. Saw a few cheeky grins in there from a few "frozen" actors ;)
Overall - very well done, and a nice alternative to the usual 48 hour comedy.

You guys did a good job considering it was a night shoot and lit with head torches. Good chemistry with the actors and I liked the chatter over the titles.
You had really good suspense and build up - there were a few good little warm-up scares in there with a hint of a monster face.... I just wish you ramped it up a few more notches toward the end, there was a-lot of potential to have a "filled-my-pants" moment.
They all made it out alive?!
Keep pushing Dead Revivals - getting better each comp.

Truly hilarious - loved everything about it.
The penguin is simultaneously heart warming and scary as all hell.

Wee girl did an amazing job and was well directed. That regurgitation at the end was perfect way to wrap up.

Awesome set up for an absolutely hilarious payoff.
Bloody loved it team Cactus.
