One Minutes, an epic exploration into the world of cinema, is comprised of a series of films all exactly one minute in length. Each film either spoofs, satirises or homage's a different style or genre.

One Minutes; traces the origins of cinema back to the 1890’s as we spend an afternoon with Douglas Wilson and his gardner; features early cinematic story telling from the 1910's with the rags to riches tale of a Victorian chimney sweep; goes back to the 1930’s following Gangsters armed with violin cases; fires with all guns blazing in a classic spaghetti western stand off; relives gory shock-horrors in a 70’s style gore fest; refreshes the 1980’s re-recurring slasher serial killer as demonic librarian Mrs. Burrows kills the offending teens who haven't returned their library books on time; cruises with two guys in their car as they get into an argument over Ninja Turtles in a tribute to American independent films from the early 90's; travels through world cinema visiting Modern German Cinema, Danish Dogme, Bollywood, the French New Wave and beyond.

Horror, drama, thriller, comedy, war, animation, film noir - One Minutes covers as many genres and styles as the hour hand will allow.
