...take another look. i didn't like it at first and thought 'what the hell did this win for?', but upon second and third viewings found myself doubled up with laughter. i mean, come on - "look! i'm a bat!" - that's brilliant! or "you seem to be having some serious continuity issues with your desk there, debbie".

i think understanding this film and it's genius requires its audience to be 48 hour participants themselves, or at least to be familiar with the competition. its blatant self-awareness and commentary on the required fields (genre, prop and line) make it a nice change from the many films that try and make themselves look like actual short films, which of course is pretty much impossible given the time constraints. although it may take a certain type of viewer, and a couple of viewings to 'get it', this is an utterly hilarious piece of work thrown together in what i'm assuming was actually less than 48 hours (given taika's participation in another entry that same weekend). love it : )
