CGiii Comment

The best thing we can ever say about a short film is...it's too short, we want more!

And that's exactly what we have to say about this Christmas gathering.

Gucci pacifiers, vegan Wednesdays and terrible chai - the dialogue is snappy and hilarious.

Definitely ripe for feature development...milking the awkward and putting Soraya on a pedestal...where she ought to be. She's a Goddess.

Can't wait for the feature!


Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...
