For whatever reason, the creators of this video have not enabled embedding. However, take a second to check it out. Film as a medium is as fascinating as the people and voices in this video.
The spoken word is brilliant. The animation is equally brilliant. It improvises, moves, thinks like it were alive. No specific style but a series of connections. This should be played in every classroom.
This short is wonderfully ambitious with its storytelling. The underlying intent: “The larger our past gets the smaller our present feels” is given a world to live in. The animation invites you in with layers of textures and ideas.
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.

I’d love to know what prime lens Pete uses alongside his zoom. Great look into the Presidency as well. I don’t envy those long hours.
A wonderful little short by Ben Briand. One of the prettiest short narratives we have ever posted on this site. At times, with the actors falling in and out of focus, the extreme shallow depth of field took you out of the scene but to a large extent it works with the moody storyline.

Another beauty from Ayz Waraich who directed White Red Panic. Strong performances, once again.
In a future filled with technology and sin, a hopeless romantic falls for a broken robot he buys at a sex shop, testing how far he’ll go for love. A short film by Lee Citron.

Watch Strange Enough.
A woman (Alison Bruce) and a man (Alistair Browning) are in love. They trust each other. And everything else flows from that. But what happens if that trust is broken? What can a relationship survive? And when we are left alone, how do we live with our regrets?
Watch it. (Dir. Alessio Fava)
Director Paolo Sorrentino‘s film is about a rugby match as a metaphor in order to show how self confidence allows, even in a difficult situation, to move towards the goal.
A short film written and directed by John Whitney and produced by Phil Garrett at Arbor Avenue.
Watch Measured Sacrifice.
Totally love the concept of differential coreography. Not sure about the execution. The director is Saam Farahmand.
Lightheaded is a journey we take with temperature sensitive candle creatures who sacrifice what they know to become who they are.
