I have always been impressed by a magician’s ability to convince an audience that an illusion is real. But we all know it isn’t, right? And with magicians being as secretive as they are, amateur illusionists can really only learn their tricks from seasoned professionals willing to give them an apprenticeship. I have a feeling the magician in our first short wishes he would have found a way to get lessons from someone… Anyone! You’ll see what I mean. James Raynor brings a good sense of humor to his comedic short film “The Great Savini”, hailing from the United Kingdom.
In our second short, director Craig Stewart shows us the lengths at which a furry little Canadian rodent will go to get vengeance against the homeowner trying to rid himself of his infestation. “Mousetrap” snaps at you with a nice quick story and a good and bloody climax.
