Created for New Zealand’s 48Hours film contest, Ghostfish: Catfished By A Ghost is a fantastic example of super-fast filmmaking.

As you can probably deduce from the title, this five-minute film is about someone who accidentally goes on a date with a ghost. The whole thing was written, filmed and edited in 48 hours, resulting in a fun and (dare we say it) haunting film that will keep surprising you till the end. 

Filmed by a team called Prime Rib, Ghostfish was the national runner-up in this year’s competition.
