Now airing on Movieola is The Lounge Singer, one of the best short films I’ve seen in a long time, and it was made in 24 hours for the Toronto 24-hour Film Challenge. Most short films take months to make, and some of the shorts we air are truncated versions of feature films. Though there are several films that I love, but going through a pile of DVDs today from the film challenge, this one stood out. I love musicals, and having done several 24-hour challenges in university, I can relate to the pressure of having to come up with a quality product in such a short timeframe. Despite one blatant continuity error, which can be forgiven due to the film’s incredibly tight shooting schedule, The Lounge Singer truly exemplifies what it means to be a Short Film. It’s short. It’s funny. It’s well-done. It’s all that you get in a feature, but in a fraction of the time.
