Seeing some mild success with Raging Kitten as it was picked up by the “Lift Off Online Sessions” Film Festival and the Roughcut 60 Second Film Challenge put on by O-Region on Oct. 14, 2021!
A cat, tormented by its owners snoring, has a Raging Bull fantasy, with less Robert De Niro and a lot more cat!
Donald “Charlie Brown” Trump writes an inspiring transition letter to his successor.
We release our latest little debacle! Quarantine 2040: A hybrid live action/animated film. You know, like Roger Rabbit!
Watch Eric do battle with his cartoon nemesis and more silly stuff like that because…why not!?!
So without further adieu, here is the animated original short: Interesting Deaths – Episode 1 – Jeremiah Clarke. Hope you enjoy it!
We spent the weekend toiling as and keeping our minds busy with the worldwide 48Hour film competition (April 3-5, 2020)
We had to choose a movie from Column A and a movie from Column B and long story short, we went with Clerks and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Aside from so many worldly things trying to keep Eric from doing this not limited to Rogers shutting his internet off prematurely due to a switching of gear…he stepped up and provided some demented live action/green screen footage.
Lisa Kennedy (Trillian Brie), Paul French (Jayphod Bobblebrox) and Patrick Williamson (Dante/Marvin) all helped provide needed voices.
So thanks for all the fish, and hopefully you get a kick out of this silly little mish mash during these less than cheerful times.
Back in October 416Film.com took part in the Toronto 48 Hour film contest once more.
Our genre: Musical.
This may be my least favourite genre but I feel like everyone involved busted their asses for this one. It didn’t put us in the finals but it is a weird, fun little film with 6.5 original songs.
Thanks to everyone involved including Paul French for the music. The writing group of Patrick Wiliiamson, Eric Myles, Ibrahim Mohamed and Rob Paul.
An old schoolmate Michael Obadia came out to do cinematography and ended up playing a role singing The Conspiracy Song, Lisa Kennedy made her 416Film debut with as a adult/child serial killer, and as (mostly) always Neil Bennet and Patrick Williamson did not let us down by playing a couple of fairly stupid detectives.
Written, shot and edited in 48 hours (although lightly tweaked after the original screening in November please feel free to abuse your soul with 416Film’s latest offering: Tone Death. Hope you enjoy it!
Henderson Brewery put on their first (hopefully of an ongoing series) 5 minute film festival and 416film.com was lucky enough to be one of the participants with our 2017 Toronto 48 Hour film – The Pain Inside Diaz – click here to watch this sentient towel masterpiece !

Did we think about allowing it to stop us?
A little bit.
But with our motley crew of regulars including Patrick Williamson, Neil Bennett, Pamela Tophen and Paul French we added some completely new blood to the mix with Michael Obadia, Lisa Kennedy and Ibrahim Mohamed who all went above and beyond for this outing.
The film screened on Nov. 16 at the Revue theatre and played so much better than we could have expected.
So thanks to all who came out and thanks to those who worked so hard on this weird little film.
Our 24 hour film Time Juice screened at the 5th Annual Cobb International Film Festival (formerly the Marietta International Film Festival) on August 4. We came away empty handed but – something, something, honored to be nominated etc, etc.
Anyway, here is a link to the film if you have a few minutes to kill with some silliness…
