This Man’s Toast

This Man’s Toast

Kieran Humphries’ film (aka Final Toastination) should server as warning to those of you who dare to eat food after the expiration date. So next time you reach for that day-old lunch meat, think twice.

The Biggest Secret Ever

The Biggest Secret Ever

From Davis Silis’ side project Adventures in Electricity. Nothing could ever live up to a title like that, so best admire the film’s visuals instead. Shot on an Arri SR2 16mm camera.

Splitscreen: A Love Story

Splitscreen: A Love Story

The winner of the 2011 Nokia Shorts Competition, JW Griffiths’ Splitscreen: A Love Story was shot entirely on a Nokia N8. Hardly a new concept, but still well executed. Making of video here.

Enjoy a baguette and a glass of Merlot as you enjoy Animator Cédric Villain’s humorous take on the wide array of French stereotypes in the short film Cliché ! French-speakers, watch it here.

Rolling Bomber Special

Rolling Bomber Special

Even the Japanese know how silly they can get. Tetsuya Nakashima’s short film will leave you in stitches even if you don’t know a lot about super sentai. How does this not have a billion views?

Carrot vs. Ninja

Carrot vs. Ninja

VFX director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan brings us this tale of root vegetables, muscle cars, and little fuzzy bunny rabbits. Yep, it sounds weird. It is weird. But in a good weird sort of way, we assure you.

We’re not quite sure what to make of Chris Ware and John Kuramoto’s offbeat short animated film about a mouse and his decapitated partner, but there’s something surprisingly endearing about it.

A Love Story in Milk

A Love Story in Milk

A brilliant short film about two containers of milk, made by Catsnake for Friends of the Earth. The props and scenes are so effective, we constantly had to check if the containers were animated.

Cats in Tanks

Cats in Tanks

(NSFW: Language) Lets be honest. The average house cat isn’t particularly menacing (except maybe this guy). But give them some tanks, and they can cause just the slightest bit of trouble.

A fridge full of leftovers contends with encroaching frost, doing what they need to do to survive in this offbeat short film by Dave Green, with a special appearance by David Cross as Ham Sandwich.
