Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with an array of awesome in the form of this week's shorts. This week we've got a mix of drama, scifi, dark comedy, and maybe a music video or two. If you've got an hour or so of time today, it's in my humblest opinion that you give these guys a shot. We've been able to screen so many wonderful shorts so far and this week is no exception. Special thanks to those still shooting their shorts at me and fear not, just becuase you don't see you're short pop up on the next SS column, it could absolutely pop up a few weeks later, you never know. Anyways, 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 do this:
Up first is Erwann Marshall's drama: "While preparing for the biggest fight of his life, a mixed martial arts fighter comes to terms with what it means to be a father and a son." It's an incredibly high quality look inside the world of mixed martial arts.
IMMERSIVE COCOON "2011"
And next we have Oliver Zeller's love letter to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
THE MUSHROOM SESSIONS
While we're on the subject of heartbreak, Adam Cosco's got a great film to come in and today's program with his incredibly well acted drama, THE MUSHROOM SESSIONS. "The Mushroom Sessions is a slice of life drama that centers around two people sorting through the sordid pieces of their once happy relationship."
And there we go with our last short of the day, but what's that? You want to keep this shorts watching fiesta going? Awesome! Here's list of previous columns:
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.
Please don’t feel the need to submit multiple times. I swear to each of you I truly check every email I get, and sending the same short a few times just makes it a bit messier.
Remember, the filmmakers might still be in the audience, so feel free to share your thoughts in Talkbacks below. (Just don't be a dick) I picked them, so you know I think highly of all of these, but how about you fine folks? What are your thoughts?
