Eat My Shorts: 405 (2000)

405 (2000)
Directed by Bruce Branit & Jeremy Hunt
Starring: Jeremy Hunt & Angela Burns
Running Time: 3 Minutes
Country: USA

Made on a completely shoe string budget (mostly time and computers), 405 was one of the first viral short films I was ever witness to. It is about an SUV driver traveling down the 405 highway at the wrong time. The highway has been cleared to allow a DC-10 to make an emergency landing and with him in the way things get a little interesting.

The visual effects are certainly quite impressive, however the two gents behind the film have had extensive practice working on shows like Stargate and Star Trek. The main thing I like about this film is that it is short, action packed and has a nice humorous bite to it.
