Award-winning Western Australian filmmakers and Central Institute of Technology (CIT) graduates Henry Inglis and Aaron
McCann have gone back to where it all began to produce It's A Snap, a comedy digital short about 'learning in the city'.
Head of Marketing at CIT, Kenley Gordon, gave the boys free reign to do whatever they liked, so long as it promoted learning in the city. The result is certainly not your average tertiary education commercial and definitely not for the squeamish.
"Free reign isn't supposed to mean dismembered limbs! If there's a next time, I'll stay on set till the final scene wraps," said Gordon.
Written, directed by and starring Inglis and McCann, the two-minute short features Henry & Aaron's unique brand of insanity which shares some of Tim and Eric's sense of the bizarre.
Inglis and McCann met whilst studying Film & Television at CIT in 2002 and since graduating have seen their filmmaker careers blossom, culminating in winning the inaugural Movie Extra Webfest in January 2011. The duo beat over 100 entrants from across Australia to take out the $50,000 prize to write, produce and star in their own 7-part comedy series.
The series Henry & Aaron's 7 Steps to Superstardom debuted on YouTube in June 2011 and on Foxtel in December 2011. To date, the series has achieved over 117,000 YouTube hits and counting.
