gaysharktank.com on the big screen:
“Gaysharktank.com -- Director Guy Shalem and his huge cast clearly had a good time making this 15-minute Chatroulette parody. Just when you worry that the fun concept has overstayed its welcome, Shalem quickly wraps it up. This one should definitely be an audience-pleaser"
"A sardonic look at social networking and online matchmaking, GaySharkTank.com provides a series of very funny split-screen video speed dates. The cast members are uniformly fantastic, and the underlying message about what men want—and don’t want—is effectively, if snarkily communicated."
"freaking hilarious short film!!"
15 minutes comedy short
