      @pixpholabs – Lol, thanks for the comment. All the cast as at when we shot 1j316 were all medical students, one engineering student and one medical doctor (rebel leader). Working on a new short film presently with more realistic effect and ready to get your mind blown. You can like and follow our Facebook page so you get updates: Pixpho Labs

    Nice try guys. Keep doing this and you will soon perfect your craft. Good soundtrack and sound effects apart from the buzzing flies. Also try and vary the gunshot noise, was too repetitive. Good surround sound tho. Also try and show attacker and defender in the gunfire exchange simultaneously. All in all tremendous effort! Well done!

    it was really good. stylized, well done. the opening scene didn’t work for me, everything else was stylish and (well, the word again) stylized. fine boys too 🙂 next time, use the original language (pidgin, Hausa, ?) and clean stark subtitling, woah.

    and just now i saw it was made under a time-constraint, ok, really wow. You have a fan o.
