Short Cuts centres around nine media students who explore the various uses of a video camera. A camera can be a tool of expression, exploration and communication. But it can also be a tool of manipulation, secrecy and lies. The students find individual ways of using the camera; the only rules being, there are no rules, so expect the unexpected! Short Cuts won the 2002 ATOM Award (Australian Teachers of Media) for Best Children's TV Series, the 2002 AFI Award for Best Children's Drama series, and writer Marieke Hardy won an Australian Writer's Guild Award for Best Children's Screen and Radio (Original).

Short Cut Draw Blood is the third studio album by the British musician Jim Capaldi, released by Island Records in 1975. It marked a major turning point in Capaldi's career: it was his first album recorded after the breakup of Traffic, and more importantly it was his commercial breakthrough. While Capaldi's first two solo albums had been moderately successful in the United States (in fact, in Short Cut Draw Blood was his least successful album in the United States thus far, with both the album itself at number 193 and the single “Love Hurts” barely scraping into the Billboard charts at number 97), Short Cut Draw Blood entered the charts in several other countries for the first time. This was particularly evident in his native United Kingdom; the single “It's All Up to You” at number 27, released a year before the album, became his first top 40 hit there, only to be overshadowed the following year by his cover of “Love Hurts”, which went all the way to number 4. The title of the album was conceived by co-producer Chris Blackwell.
