In Tom Judd’s animated short film, we get to see how modern technology will eventually lead us to our own desktop genetic engineering, allowing us to make our very own mini action heroes.

Super Mario Wall

Super Mario Wall

We’re not sure exactly how animator Surfap managed to get this speed-run through the classic NES platformer seamlessly layered onto this wall and ground, but we like Super Concrete Mario.

LA Lights

LA Lights

Surfers, skateboarders, basejumpers and deep-sea divers have nothing on these guys – masters of freestyle walking. Think of them as modern-day descendants of the Ministry of Silly Walks.

The Bowler

The Bowler

Meet Rocky Salemmo. Fast-talking, quick-witted and a bowling hustler. For him, bowling is “a way to make a living without making a living.” A quirky short film by Sean Dunne. (Language NSFW).

Cardboard Warfare

Cardboard Warfare

What better defense against that Cardboard Tank than cardboard guns? These paper-pulp weapons do way more damage in this ridiculous video clip than real guns do, but it’s still fun to watch.

Gorillaz: Journey to Plastic Beach

Gorillaz: Journey to Plastic Beach

To kick off their UK and European tour, bass guitarist and band-leader Murdoc narrates this part-animated, part-real world film which is well worth the 15+ minute watch for fans of the band.

Fluffy Mc Cloud

Canon 5D MkII Videos

Canon 5D MkII Videos

We featured the number one video on this list previously, but there’s talent afoot in the other 9 videos shot with the Canon 5D MkII with 21.1 MP CMOS sensor and 30 fps full HD video recording.

MOMENTOS

MOMENTOS

A sentimental short film written and directed by Nuno Rocha for LG Portugal. We won’t say any more about it, just that even though it’s basically one long ad, it’s still well worth your time.

Short Film: Switch

Short Film: Switch

Tyson Hesse’s short animated film revolves around a very special light switch that results in some unexpected consequences when it’s flicked on and off. Charming, well-animated, and funny.

Short Film: Fly

Short Film: Fly

This short from Aardman Animation (home of Wallace and Grommit) shows us everything not to do when we have a pesky fly buzzing around the house. Memo to self: do not order a box of spiders.

Lumber Jack’s Wood Feast

Lumber Jack’s Wood Feast

Wood is having a bad day from the looks of this clip by Buck. The art direction in this thinly-veiled environmental statement is worth a watch no matter what you think of cutting down trees.

Art imitates art history with Swedish band Hold Your Horses’ music video for 70 Million; created by L’Ogre, it features the band members in playfully reconstructed famous paintings.

Video Game Bosses Lament

Video Game Bosses Lament

You’d think after decades of losses against a single, very-determined player that they’d learn, but this Video Game Bosses’ Lament proves that there’s no getting around 8-bit, 2D thinking.

Funny: Die Hardly Working

Funny: Die Hardly Working

NSFW: Mixing office work with an action movie franchise can only end in lots of sick days, as proven by Die Hardly Working; folks, this is why we only have one Bruce Willis.

Round 6 (Short Film)

Snowball Studios’ Round 6 is actually two stories in one: it’s a trailer for a video game called Fragball (think gladiator football meets Army of Two) which was invented for the sci-fi short film.

Short Film: Regen

Short Film: Regen

Regen is a trippy union of Death Race, Resident Evil and Minority Report with just the barest semblance of a plot, but good god is it awesome: that ball and chain seriously rocks.

Video: My Father’s Garden

Video: My Father’s Garden

If insects make you squirm it’s best to look away, but everyone else Mirko Faienza’s short film of his father’s garden is a cinematographic tour-de-force; it was shot on an HPX500.
