FOX TV’s On The Lot – the first reality show that matters – at least for film and video makers?

Here’s the link to see the best shorts films created by the On The Lot contestants – these include the videos that aired during episode 2 as well as those that were created but not broadcast. Remember, these were all written, shot and edited within a 24 hour time span – with a three person production crew who had never met before an din some case, who didn’t like each other and did not get along at all.
