An extreme case of how some people use social media to get attention

Remember Me is a typical boy-cheats-on-girl story that turns into a surprising tale of someone so narcissistic that he would do anything to get attention. Add Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to the mix, and things get crazy fast. It's exaggerated, yes, but I'm sure you know people like this online—and in real life too. » 12/19/14 11:44pm 12/19/14 11:44pm

Short film: The horror of re-discovering a UFO crash from the 1960s

The Landing is a powerful short film directed by Josh Tanner that tells the story of a mysterious UFO crash in the 1960s and the truth that is revealed when it's found again in the present day. It makes us question what is alien and makes us wonder if it's better off just not knowing things sometimes. » 12/09/14 12:03am 12/09/14 12:03am

Short film: The hilarious truth about time travel is that we're selfish

If you could travel through time where would you go? To the future? To go see dinosaurs? And what would you do? Cure cancer? Prevent wars? Sure. But what about just using time travel to selfishly make your life easier? It sounds silly but it really might be the funniest thing you can do with time travel. » 12/01/14 10:55pm 12/01/14 10:55pm

Short film: What happens when plastic toys go to war

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. » 11/26/14 11:57pm 11/26/14 11:57pm

Watching all these macro shots of machines being used put me in a trance

Mazer Media, the people who filmed this short Machines Rule the World, promises that there is a story in this video that stitches together beautiful macro shots of machines being used. I couldn't find it because I was so entranced by the close up scenes that I completely forgot that I was watching something. » 10/28/14 12:23am 10/28/14 12:23am

Ambition: A cool sci-fi short starring Game of Thrones' Littlefinger

Bad news: Ambition wasn't the movie that we all wished for (it should be!) It's a short film directed by Oscar-winning Tomek Bagiński and starring Aidan Gillen—Littlefinger of Game of Thrones—about the importance of the Rosetta mission, the first that will make contact with a comet. Good news: It's cool and you can… » 10/26/14 9:01pm 10/26/14 9:01pm

These stunning trailers for an animation short left me craving for more

I really like these two trailers from Tant de Forêts—a short film by France-based directors Burcu Sankur and Geoffrey Godet. The animation starts simple and colorful but all of a sudden, that happy world turns dark and intriguing. Enough to leave me craving to watch the entire thing. » 10/24/14 9:45pm 10/24/14 9:45pm

Short film: A strange tale of mice and men with a disturbing ending

I watched this short film yesterday night and I'm still thinking about it. Who is this guy? Why are there clones of him? Why is there a time loop? Is the guy actually a mouse in some experiment? Is it a metaphor of the futility of life itself? Thanks filmmaker Justin Tagg for fucking up my mind a little bit more. » 10/14/14 10:05pm 10/14/14 10:05pm
