In Only Son Sydney (Josh Thomson from The Panel) tries to court the girl of his dreams, but is hampered by unwanted advice from his dead father. This short comedy was made for — and won — the 2010 48Hours filmmaking competition. The bawdy rom-com twist on the father-son relationship came from prolific production team The Downlow Concept (7 Days, Hounds and several 48Hours successes).
