MY TAKE: Clever twist...low budget solutions for getting rid of evidence makes this guy perfect for a job he cannot refuse. Check out my interview with the director and producer/actor below...
Nathan is a 6 years old kid like most kids of his age with a lot of imagination. He loves to dress-up and be in a character of monsters, zombies, vampires, super hero. He would prefer to play with someone of his age, a friend than to play with his imagination. but who? the new babysitter might be the one.
MY TAKE: I didn't sympathize much with the Nanny (nor will you, I think), so you don't mind when Nathan decides to play such interesting games with his babysitter!
Trevor reflects on his fear of dating.
MY TAKE: Short, sweet, funny and genresque.
Brian, a guy enjoying some "alone time"sneezes at an inopportune moment and is shocked by the consequences.

MY TAKE: Originally a 48 hour film with a fun cast, particularly the Trainee herself! Check out my interview with the filmmaker:
Blake and Q are childhood best friends, roommates, and well - soulmates. After a long day trying to maintain her #girlboss status at work, Blake's one-track mind is solely set on the nachos Q has promised to make for dinner. In addition to the nachos, however, Q has also unexpectedly managed to kill someone in their apartment. Through a series of heavily graphic and hilarious situations, the girls tap into their inner serial killers and decide to handle the body themselves. Their naivete and inexperience leads to a weekend full of accidental drugs, Saran Wrap, and body that, for whatever reason, will not stop bleeding. So hypothetically speaking - how do you get rid of a body? Asking for a friend.
MY TAKE: Some lovely, creative shooting during Blake's drug trip prior to sorting out the details of dealing with the body and a very unique look into what must be a STRONG friendship!
