A proto-animated short film by Alexey Minchenok. Young Master 4: Stone and Iron presents the classic master-student story with clever and sparing use of drawings, music and sound effects.

Storm Origins

Storm Origins

(NSFW: Lyrics) Freerunning gets as much plot as it can in this acrobatic short film. Ok, so jumping off of walls and rails isn’t really a story, but it’s still way cool – especially on fire. (Thanks, Ian!)

Surreality

Surreality

We’re truly grateful for the conveniences of modern urban life. But it does leave us disconnected and overwhelmed sometimes, as shown in this short film directed by Falko Tilgner.

In the Fall

In the Fall

There is nothing new or innovative in this animated short by Steve Cutts, from the first shot to the concept itself. But the bittersweet introspection that it induces in the viewer makes it special.

Astonish Me

Astonish Me

The WWF (no, not that WWF) exposes us to some unusual and extraordinary recently discovered species, encouraging us to preserve our planet and habitats so we still might discover more.

Consoul

Consoul

Animator Lasse Gjertsen tells the story of one man’s journey through life, told in the pixelated style of retro video games. Pay careful attention to the score and health indicators throughout.

Tiny Chainsaw

Tiny Chainsaw

The idea of carrying around a tiny chainsaw in your pocket seems like it’s probably not the smartest thing you could do. Rather Good Stuff and animator Ross Butter show us exactly why.

MOVE

Eyrie

Eyrie

A young boy works diligently to protect his sheep from a predator in this poetic short animated film by David Wolter, a recent Dreamworks hire. Stick around for the surprising twist ending.

Ten for Grandpa

Ten for Grandpa

Doug has ten questions for the infamous David Karr, the alleged KGB mole, also his grandpa. A manifestation of the myths and disconnected trivia that we as kids had of our elders.

Over Time

Over Time

At once bizarre, funny and touching, Over Time is about a group of puppets trying to cope with their creator’s passing. Directed by Oury Atlan, Thibaut Berland and Damien Ferrié.

Extn. 21

Extn. 21

A surreal mix of stop-motion animation composited with a live actor, Lizzie Oxby’s engrossing, award-winning short film was originally released in 2003, but you can catch the entire thing online right now.

Defective Detective

Defective Detective

An imaginative mind can be a potent weapon for a sleuth, but this man takes it too far. He’s more Johnny English than Sherlock Holmes. A funny little film by Avner Geller and Stevie Lewis.

Running on Empty

Running on Empty

With all of the attention on this weekend’s Hwy. 405 “Carmageddon” road closure, it’s only right to see what Los Angeles might look like without cars. It’s a little eerie, but a welcome change from the norm.

Who’s Afraid of Mr Greedy?

Who’s Afraid of Mr Greedy?

Mr. Greedy is one mean mofo. He eats little kids for breakfast and collects their heads. Yeesh. But a little decapitation doesn’t stop us from enjoying this brilliantly animated, if a little dark, short film.

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.

Plot Device

A young filmmaker adds an extra gadget to his Amazon cart and gets more than he bargained for. A clever way to advertise Magic Bullet Suite 11, the effects package used to embellish this short film.
