Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with an exciting lineup of badass short films I think you might want to check out. Unfortunately last week was a non-stop chaotic flood of business, so I missed out on sharing some cool films with you all. Fear not, this week’s lineup is something special, with an unintended theme of throwing friends into a bizarre situation and seeing how they react. Of course themes of friendships and high fives isn’t my typical brand of fun, so expect something with a bit more teeth. Whatever kind of films you’re into, I just hope you catch a short here that rocks your world. Some look to have had decent budgets, others – zero, but what they all have is a certain level of passion wherein a person set out to make something – and succeeded (from where I sit). So without much more chit chat, let’s kick this shindig off and see some fun flicks, eh? 
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:
