Even if the philosophical overtones float over your head, Alex Glawion’s In-Between Ends is easily worth watching if only to soak up the surreal animations and fantastic sound effects.
A crosswalk sign goes on a walk of its own in Tokyo/Glow: the rotoscoped/composited short film features a suit with high voltage LED rope lights and a translucent nylon outer shell.
Self-described as a sci-fi western on a tiny budget, Connected is a dark yet beautifully shot post-apocalyptic short film set in Denmark; we like its favoring of artistic style over exposition.
With a soundtrack set to The National’s “Slow Show”, Tobias Boesen’s Out Of A Forest will either leave you feeling fuzzy or hopping mad; it’s a fantastically shot CG/stop-motion film.
If you liked yesterday’s 1945A, Project Arbiter takes two steps back to 1943 but at least four steps forward in terms of awesomeness; mobile armored suits in WW2 = nuts!
The “A” stands for alternate reality in Ryan Nagata’s 1945A, shot on a $2,000 budget; in it, the Nazis spring a lumbering diesel-punk surprise on the Allies just before the end of WW2.
With the exception of a frisky puppet, Casey Neistat gives us a surprisingly SFW tour of Chatroulette; best part: his somewhat scientific tests yield completely unsurprising results.
Created with Adobe’s Creative Suite, Ghislain Avrillon’s Galileo is fantastically analog in style for such a digital piece; it was traditionally animated frame-by-frame using Flash.
Sure, it starts (and ends) like a cheesy Korean soap opera, but Team Bay’s My Way has a meaty center of awesomery-goodness packed with a German Wolverine, ninjas, and heinous head butts.
Johnny Kelly’s Procrastination seems maddening and even obsessive, but it’s dead-on in conveying the pointlessness of putting things off; while we’re on the topic: get to work!
We’re the first to admit we don’t quite get Mongrel’s Creed, but we’re intrigued by its mix of dystopic sci-fi and black comedy; no word on when the full 11 minute short will be released.
If only all of life was as easy as copying, pasting and undoing: Adobe Photoshop Cook is a whimsical stop-motion short film on making butter cookies; next up: click-drag-ingest.
They say that nothing can keep two people in love apart, but Spy Films’ Nuit Blanche isn’t exactly what we had in mind; gorgeously violent, it’s shot in a slow-mo, hyper-real film noir style.
Henrik SÃ¸nniksen’s Vegeterrible gives us a terrifying glimpse into the inner workings of a fridge; this deliciously animated short turns rotten food decay into an epic battle for survival.
Rhett&Link’s T-shirt War puts our paltry graphic tee collection to shame, with Rhett and Link changing shirts over 100 times each in a stop-motion battle; yes, the 222 t-shirts are for sale.
Lv Sisi’s Digital Analogue is true to its name; the kinetic stop motion short film was edited digitally but is composed of over 6,000 still photos and set to sounds made by antique cameras.
NSFW: It’s no secret we live in a world saturated by brands, but Logorama takes this to its logo-gical extremes; the animated short film won Kodak’s Discovery Prize at Cannes.
Netherland-based il Luster’s Pivot is an unusual short film that does an about-face from more complex animations; it instead opts for a minimalist (yet stunning) low poly-count style.
Facts About Projection isn’t just a moving tribute to a dying profession (projectionists) but to a way of life; theaters aren’t the only thing going digital in a world meant to be lived in analog.
Directed by Edouard Salier, Splitting the Atom is the jaw-dropping (and floppy-eared) capture of a single moment; it’s set to the same-named album by trip-hop group Massive Attack.
Benoit Millot’s A Day in Paris is a live-action/CG short that takes the everyday parts of what it means to be a Parisian and merges them into something equal parts wonderful and WALL-E.
Pumzi is a 21 minute Kenyan sci-fi short film that is as sexy as it is sophisticated; it’s directed by Kenyan Wanuri Kahiu and funded by a producer of Alive in Joburg (District 9’s predecessor).
Deliciously strange, Terri Timely’s Synesthesia is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the ears; warning: includes newspaper turkeys, mistranslated Cantonese, and cat-hurling speakers.
Available on DVD 1/25/10: equality gets taken to its illogical extremes in 2081, a 25 minute dystopic short film; it’s based on Kurt Vonnegut’s short story, Harrison Bergeron.
Mixing assassins with Google’s Nexus One thankfully only results in a lot of shredded cardboard: Ninja’s Unboxing is a sharp warning to blister packs and shrink wrapping everywhere.
All is fair in love and war, but ninjas often have a hard time telling the two apart: Daniel Klug’s Les Dangereux shows that assassins can be amorous–as long as they don’t get killed first.
