Awesome Online Magazine has decided to launch a movie project, and thus holds auditions - so Awesome's editors Lee Roberts, Michelle Gent and Wes Dolan hold auditions ... and before they know it, they find themselves in a room full of semi- to non-talents, from several chicks who Wes has picked up on a party and would like to give the casting couch routine to a failed magician and impressionist who actually wants to get a job as a writer on the mag (Rob Ireland), from a talentless ventriloquist (Jessica Messenger) to a laugh-inducing singer (David Samuels). But the worst of the bunch is Rudy (Rudy Barrow), who manages to mess up a very simple card trick even though the judges give him three tries, he fails to hit a single note when singing a song, and when he's asked off the stage, he fails to do even that. Instead he pulls a gun, shoots Lee in the leg, shoots the security dead, then forces everyone to listen to his ramblings and to act out humiliating scenarios - and he's especially abusive to one of Wes's chicks (Eirian Cohen) whom he calls his stalker (though as gone as Rudy seems to be, there's no reason to believe this). But in all honesty, who can tell what's real and what's not during an audition?

 

Awesome Killer Auditions is something of an experiment, as it was filmed (with two cameras) in one continuous take, and was mostly improvised - and because of that, the film is not free of weaknesses. Basically, some of the more dramatic moments (including the gunshots) do not have the impact they deserve due to a lack of special takes for these scenes and the camera not always being on point due to the improvised nature of the film, and sometimes the sound is slightly off.

But that said, the movie definitely has its strengths, like the actors (most of them Philip Gardiner regulars) trying to outdo each other giving hilariously bad auditions, everyone's (including the judges) willingness of self-deprecation, and of course Rudy Barrow (just about the nicest guy in real life) excelling as psychopath.

Now I'll say that much: Not one of Philip Gardiner's best films, and not an entirely successful experiment - but still a very enjoyable and actually quite funny movie!!!

 

By the way, Awesome Online Magazine is an actual magazine - http://www.awesomeonlinemagazine.com - that does on occasion branch out into filmmaking, and the three judges have actually worked for the mag when this movie was shot. Michelle Gend has since been promoted to the mag's editor-in-chief.
