    I Am Bob
    Heap of Trouble
    Goodbye Mr. Snuggles

    I Am Bob
    On his way to a Make Poverty History fundraising event, celebrity Bob Geldolf is accidentally abandoned by an incompetent chauffeur in one of the remotest and tackiest motels in Northern England. To his horror, he discovers that a look-alike convention is taking place and no one believes him when he tells them who he is. Just when things look like they can't get any worse, he realizes that he may not be the only Bob Geldolf at the convention! Sir Bob Geldolf plays himself in this hilarious tale of celebrity gone awry. Written and directed by Donald Rice. Principal cast: Bob Geldolf, David Bamber, Brian Conley, Peter Dunwell and Claire Rushbrook.

    Heap of Trouble
    Ladies beware! Men are tired of upholding the macho facade any longer. A group of men are rebelling and are shedding the shackles (as well as a few other articles) of their enslavement. Mass hysteria overtakes an unsuspecting suburban town. Be forewarned you will find yourself singing their catchy protest song at the most inopportune times. Writer/director Steve Sullivan was amused when the New York Postal service banned postcards promoting the short film. Principal cast: Andrew Scofield, Paul Dean Taylor, Kathryn Dimery and Jo Price.

    Goodbye Mr. Snuggles
    Two elderly gentlemen head off into the lush green meadows of the spectacular English countryside in search of a great view and a quiet day of painting and relaxation. Ruining their idyllic afternoon is a gun-toting clown hell bent on destruction. Who are you going to call when clowns go bad? An absurd comedy written and directed by Jonathan Hopkins. Principal cast: James Fox (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Robert Hardy (All Creatures Great and Small), and Tony Bluto.
