A knit toy dinosaur sees the love of its life in danger, and will do whatever it takes to save his one and only, regardless of the consequences. Andrew Goldsmith and Bradley Slabe’s stop-motion short is an emotional ride as good as anything from Pixar. Behind the scenes here.
Chris Cousins‘ animated short film uses imagery of endlessly churned-out drugs as an analogy for the addictive – and potentially harmful nature of social media. Seriously, how did something that delivers cat videos become a vehicle for manipulating global politics and distributing hate?
A man decides to make a big change in his life and buy a field filled with corn, but he finds himself distracted as he contemplates the impact his newfound purchase will have on the world. Cory and Brendan’s short film is the perfect blend of hilarious and weird.
Don Hertzfeldt’s hilariously weird Rejected was nominated for the 2001 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. It was remastered for a Blu-Ray release in 2015, and the artist recently re-released the clip on his YouTube channel. It’s a must watch for lovers of the absurd.
(PG-13) A man experiences a breakup with his girlfriend in the worst way possible, as her entire Dear John letter is read to him by the electronic voice living inside of his iPhone. Craig Tovey’s short film is an amusing commentary on dating and relationships in the 21st century.
Evan and Marceline have had a great evening so far. The thing is, Evan hasn’t had any in a while so he’s nervous about how he will perform, should it go there. Turns out he was right to be scared… just for the wrong reasons. Henry Jinings’ short film is quite the ride.
