Comedy Short Films
As both a creative passion and a way to showcase our film production skills, we regularly write, direct, shoot, and edit short comedy films in a web series called Evil Grin Gift Box. Some of them are designed to showcase cinematography, some have an emphasis on writing, and others highlight editing skills. But mostly, we hope to make people laugh. Right now, the series consists of over 50 short comedy films, most of which function as standalone narratives or sketches. Some of these (including Whistle Boys, Paved, The Eye, The Breadwinner, The Wash, One Million XP, and Twig) won awards in competitions, including Best Writing, Best Editing, Best Actor, and multiple Audience Choice awards.
