The Gunfighter by Eric Kissack (2013) (USA) (9m)

The Gunfighter sees a gunslinger walk into a saloon but followed by a voiceover that everyone in the bar can hear (a conceit similar to the 2006 feature film Stranger Than Fiction, where the main character can hear his life being described in a voiceover). The problem for the gunfighter is that the voiceover is painfully honest, which presents various problems. However, the others in the saloon soon find that they are not immune from the brutal veracity of the voiceover. How will they escape the seemingly inescapable?

Paraphernalia by John Williams (2009) (UK) (12m)

A beautifully put together short written and directed by John Williams, Paraphernalia follows 8-year-old boy, Atari Withers, as he tries to escape his constant companion, an apparently very low-tech robot. All the robot appears to do is make Atari's life harder and spoil his fun, so it is surely only a matter of time before Atari takes his frustrations out on the robot. John Williams has been making successful short films for over a decade... practice makes perfect!
