A foley artist adding sound effects to your life is a pretty wonderful thing

Here’s a fun bit: a foley artist recreating and accentuating the sounds of everyday life, transforming a shower into hand tossing spaghetti while making coffee can be blowing bubbles in a milkshake with a swirly straw. The imagination of sounds gets more and more ridiculous which results in more and more fun. »10/28/15 9:00pm10/28/15 9:00pm

Neat film shows that even dystopian nightmares can have happy endings

Dystopian visions of the future always portray scenarios where humans have destroyed Earth and turned it into a desolated and almost uninhabitable place. But our planet probably doesn’t really care. It will just wait us silly humans out until we disappear and then flourish again just as beautiful and full of life as… »10/16/15 5:10pm10/16/15 5:10pm

Super fun short warps reality by screwing with our expectations

This fantastic short by Terri Timely and Park Pictures completely bends your mind because everyday tasks—like, putting toothpaste on your tooth brush—become something completely different and weird and almost abstract—like, the toothpaste becoming a flame thrower. Think you know what happens when you turn on a TV or… »10/08/15 5:20pm10/08/15 5:20pm

Short film: God is only a brain malfunction

The first time my grandma visited the Sistine Chapel, she almost passed out. When she recovered she said she saw God. If the premise of this short is correct, she didn’t. She only suffered a weird type of epilepsy triggered by certain images. Those visions of God follow a precise pattern and can be induced in other… »10/01/15 5:40pm10/01/15 5:40pm

This short film is arguably the cutest prequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This mysterious hole in the ground can duplicate organic life 

Imagine having a magical device that can duplicate any organic life you put into it. You could have an army of adorable pets, a mountain of your favorite veggies, man, you could even erase hunger from the face of the Earth with it. Unfortunately, such a device only exists in this short film and even there it doesn’t… »9/23/15 11:58am9/23/15 11:58am

Fun time travel short is like a silly version of Terminator

If I had a chat with my future self it would go something like this: I’d ask him if I achieved all my hopes and dreams and he’d be totally bitter and would absolutely complain about how lazy I’ve been and all opportunities I’ve missed. The hero of this film has that kind of chat but, unlike me, he is able to confront… »9/21/15 9:29pm9/21/15 9:29pm

Cool short film teases what happens to Boba Fett after Star Wars

Boba Fett is supposed to get his own Star Wars Anthology film that focuses on the origins of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter but I think I’d much rather watch this version made by Eric Demeusy that shows Boba Fett escaping sarlacc with the help of the Slave I and then moving on to whoever knows where, in some sort… »9/02/15 11:18am9/02/15 11:18am
