Really good story telling. Almost every scene comes as a surprise but because it remains motivated, the short has a flow and rhythm to it.

Shion Takeuchi‘s fourth year thesis film from Calarts is just pearfect jewel. “It was made using puppets, Flash, and motion tracking.”

Steve Smith, founder of Beakus and previously at Sherbet and Trunk, wrote, designed and directed Stufffed, a five episode series for the web portal of BBC Comedy Extra. Episodes one and two are online; even though they’re about a kid and his teddy bear, you should better watch it in private, as the thumbnail above might have made you realize. Definitely not in the Playful Innocence category…
Watch Episode 1: Lady Bear Bear.
Watch Episode 2: Circus.
Lucy is a girl who loves candy, especially Lolly pops. However, to the lolly this innocent, sweet little girl is a monster who slowly tortures the defenceless stick before crunching it into pieces.

I just love these talented young actors. Wow. Strong in every element but the performances carry it.
How wrong could possibly be a commercial. Well, when kids are involved, there doesn’t seem to be any limit…

This film is constantly voted the best documentary of all time. It is available in full at Hulu in 420p HD. Cannot get better than that online.
The film remains relevant just like it did when it first came out. Two young basketball players struggle to fulfill a common dream which is to make to the NBA. The two kids have contrasting styles and personalities, each story could have made a great documentary in of itself. But together, the stories highlight the hi’s and lo’s of each story even better. Once in a lifetime kind of movie.
Introspective and titillating at the same time.
P.s. I am getting tired of the 35mm adapters on DV cameras.
This should be the Little Miss Sunshine of 2007 (a movie I loved). Ellen Page who plays the title character seems like a star in the making. Her comic timing, at least from the trailers, is impeccable. Can’t wait for this to come out.
