Mini-movie-maker makes the final of One-minute Oscars

Croydon’s mini-movie-maker, Michael Hall, has done it again.

Michael Hall: needs your votes

Michael Hall: needs your votes

Hall, the sometime stand-up comedian and leading light in the borough’s top am-dram group, CODA, has made it to the short-list of 20 finalists in Empire magazine’s annual “Done in 60 Seconds” competition – where they invite 60-second Spielbergs and one-minute Malicks to put together boiled-down versions of favourite movies.

It is the fourth year in succession that Hall has made it into the final. Last year’s effort was a brief version of The Ladykillers.

This time around, Hall has delivered his one-minute version of Robo Cop.

And unlike tonight’s Oscars, Hall can win the big prize if he gets enough votes.
