“Voyage of the Galactic Space Dangler” by Evan Mann is completely, deliciously absurd. If you want to see the weirdest ways an advanced species could accidentally intrude on and ruin another group’s planet, this is for you.
Saving online articles to read-it-later services like Instapaper or Pocket is a nice way of pretending to yourself that you’re eventually going to get round to reading through everything—but that’s easier said than done. Enter Short.
I don't know what the hell I was expecting from a short titled He Took His Skin Off For Me, but I sure wasn't expecting this. A love story that is a horror nightmare that is a metaphor of certain relationships. Or vice versa. All with with excellent 100-percent practical special effects. Hard to watch, but worth it.
Director Alexander Engel sent us his short This Is It—a 3-minute look into the daily life of roommates with a dialog entirely constructed with questions. It is funny because this is really it, this is exactly how it is. My advice: Don't live with a roommate. Try to avoid it at all costs because all roommates suck at…
This wonderfully made animation plays up war as something that's actually fun. There are guns that shoot out flowers and grenades that are actually caramel apple lollipops. But because war is actually a horrific thing, the short film takes a dark turn. If only it were always flowers and lollipops.
Disney just released a teaser trailer for the new animation short Feast that will premiere right before Big Hero 6 and it's just adorable. I mean, does life get better than seeing a lovable dog happily gulp down delicious food? Yeah, I didn't think so.
I've been spooked by dogs in parked cars plenty of times, but I never teased them. Unlike the guy in this short created by London-based animation house Birdbox Studios. At the end, he learns his lesson the hard way. Karma, people. It's a bitch.
Its animators describe Mortal Breakup Inferno as "an angry girlfriend's infernal hunt of the man who broke her heart." I find it hilarious because it reminds me of some real cases that may or may have not involved men or women turning into fire-breathing monsters—although none had a final twist like this.
I don't know if the short Dust—written and directed by Ben Ockrent and Jake Russell—is a fairy tale or a horror tale. Let's just say that I didn't expect the end at all. This is very disturbing but worth watching, and not only because I love Alan Rickman in the role of... of... you just watch and see.
Time travel looks like fun until you actually take it to its ultimate consequences. Directed by Bo Mirosseni and written by Elisha Yaffe, Time Travel Lover is a fun little short that shows how time travel would destroy our lives if it were real. This is heavy, Doc.
I enjoyed this animated short called Johnny Express and written, directed and animated by Kyungmin Woo very, very much. Give it a watch. It's about a lazy delivery man of the universe in the year 2150 who stumbles upon an alien world that he doesn't quite understand. It's cute and hilarious and oodles of fun. I don't…
If you crossed Hunger Games with Oblivion, mixed in some feelings of Moon, sprinkled a little of action from that Bourne movie without Matt Damon and shook it all up with astronaut suits, futuristic guns, another planet and an eerie death match you would get Project Skyborn, a heart pumping short by Marko Slavnic.…
Sit back, grab a hot cup of tea, maybe open up a bag of cookies and enjoy yourself with this lovely musical animation called Love in the Time of Advertising. It's a short made by David Bokser & Matt Berenty and it's adorable in all the right ways, punching through with humor, emotion, double meanings and visual style…
AMP is a pretty engaging sci-fi short written and directed by Adam Marisett for Triton Films. It's set in a world where giant robots can be your best friend and giant robot dogs can be your worst enemy. Basically, it's the kind of dystopian war where technology is awesome.
Thank God computers are satisfied with the one-way relationship we have with them. We put them to work every single day, asking them to check our e-mail, using them to follow the news, play with them by going on Facebook and making them creep to the darker corners of the Internet. What do they get for all that? Just…
This short film, "Hoverboard", is about a girl and her teddy bear trying to create a hoverboard after watching Back to the Future II. I can totally relate to her because I was trying to make my own hoverboard really hover just last month. You're an inspiration girl!
Can you imagine what the world would look like if humans were actually Apple computers and Apple computers were actually human? As in, computers are the ones getting excited for a new Human release (like how we clamor for new iPhones, etc.) It's kind of Planet of the Apes-ish except instead of apes it's just a world…
Man versus man. Man versus graffiti. Graffiti versus graffiti. Graffiti versus man. It may not be the circle of life, but this short is at least a circle of cartoonish, explosive fun. I'll take it!
Just like sitting too close to the TV will ruin your eyes, playing too much Mario might just take over your reality. Or at least fill it with a bunch of shiny gold coins.
