The Shortround: Fireman (Short)

Thank the prophets for the country north of the border. Canada keeps churning out great little tidbits of awesomeness and this one is in the form of fake 1980s grindhouse VHS like movie trailers. Part of the Astron-6 collective of Winnipeg, Adam Brooks, director of Fireman just won the the top prize in the Winnipeg Short Film Massacre.

You can view the faux trailer below. You can see the Maniac Cop and grindy grindhouse smell of fire burning from here. So many quotey quotables in this one. I have to say I liked it. Brooks and company have done their homework and it shows. Here's hoping we see The Postal Worker or The Ambulance Driver as the sequel.

Check all the other Astron-6 trailers by heading here.
