Awesome Short Films

Way Back Home (Short Film)

Way Back Home (Short Film)

We like the cinematography and soundtrack as much as the riding from Danny MacAskill in this short film, which follows him on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown of Dunvegan.

Mind Games (Short Film)

Mind Games (Short Film)

It may just be a Nike ad, but we appreciate the insight into the runner’s mind, specifically Casey Neistat’s, who carried a small HD video camera with him on runs for 3 weeks to shoot this movie.

Skateistan (Short Film)

Skateistan (Short Film)

Bleak and captivating, Orlando Von Einsiedel’s Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul follows the lives of young skateboarders in the Skateistan charity project in Afghanistan. (Thanks Anthony!)

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

Freestyle Motocross Short Film

For some reason, the combination in Peter Miller’s Canon Rebel T2i video of spirited motocross skills, the evocative music of Sigur Rós and the season’s luminous light has us really mesmerized right now.

The Horribly Slow Murderer

The Horribly Slow Murderer

If you can endure 20,000 spoonfuls of terror, watch Richard Gale’s short, The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon: an epic tale of one man’s encounter with a tenacious murderer.

Kanye West: Runaway

Kanye West: Runaway

(NSFW) Want to see K. West’s “noir piece”? Then prepare to sit your ass down for 34 minutes. The short film/long-ass music video is a visual feast, and of course, it’s full of awesome music as well.

oops

oops

Chris Beckman’s short film won a Vimeo Award for best Experimental Film. The premise is simple – take clips from people who drop their cameras while shooting and seamlessly stitch them together.

The Black Hole (Short Film)

The Black Hole (Short Film)

What would you do if you discovered that you had gotten your hands on a portal that lets you reach inside solid objects? This short film by Phil & Olly gives us their take on that simple premise.

Hey Ginger

Hey Ginger

Created as a birthday gift for his little brothers, Chris Schultz put together this action flick featuring little ones Scott and Markus taking each other on in the most violent little kid action since Kick-Ass.

Sintel (Open-Source Short Film)

Sintel (Open-Source Short Film)

Sintel is a gorgeously animated, dramatic CGI short film produced with the free Blender 3D creation suite and other open-source tools by an international team of artists and developers.

Freddie and the Girl

Freddie and the Girl

Awesomer fan fave Freddie Wong cranks out another one of his fantasy gun fights, this time with 90210’s Shenae Grimes by his side, who’s also not too shabby with her weapon skills.

The Man with a Fez

The Man with a Fez

Why is this dorky looking guy bouncing around on a pogo stick? And why should you be forced to sit through almost 2 minutes of this? You’ll see when you get to about 1:39. (Thanks, Yo-Naa!)

TiM

TiM

A short film by Ken Turner worth watching over and over. TiM is without question a work of metafiction, a Tim Burton-style stop motion about a boy whose ambition is to become like Tim Burton.

Your Lucky Day (Short Film)

Your Lucky Day (Short Film)

(NSFW) A 15 minute time investment here rewards you with a fluidly written, at times brutal, tightly directed 15 minute short film about a lottery ticket by the talented Dan Brown. (Thanks Duncan!)

Ghosts in the Hollow

Ghosts in the Hollow

Filmmaker Jim Lo Scalzo took a trip through the abandoned coal-mining towns of the Appalachian mountains, and put together this striking short film showing off the remnants frozen in time.

Parallel Parking

Parallel Parking

The animators at Yum Yum London created this short film which starts out with a simple enough premise, but comes with a highly unexpected ending. Good for a laugh when you need one.

8-Bit Creation

8-Bit Creation

Whether you’re into Supreme Beings or Darwin, this light-hearted 8-bit style animation by Marieke Ottrand is meant to entertain. We don’t remember this game on our Atari 2600s.

Washerbots (Short Film)

Washerbots (Short Film)

Just because there’s a giant washing machine robot hovering over crowds of screaming masses running from flaming buildings doesn’t mean that it necessarily means them harm… or does it?

Stuff vs. Stuff

Stuff vs. Stuff

Sumo Science created these short films in which ordinary objects take on each other in a fight to the death. Our favorite moment – when the Walkman stabs the vacuum to get his own guts back.

WORDS (Short Film)

WORDS (Short Film)

A beautiful short film made by Will Hoffman and Daniel Mercadante for Radiolab’s Words podcast, WORDS plays a game of word association while barely using any spoken language.

Interactive Zombie Flick

Interactive Zombie Flick

Deliver Me to Hell is a short film with plenty of blood, gore, guts (and pizza delivery?) Make your way through the interactive video for a chance to win a year worth of pizza (in New Zealand).

Short Film: Descendants

Short Film: Descendants

After 3 years of meticulous production time, this haunting CG animated film about the beauty and mystery of nature has finally seen the light of day. And yes, it’s that Whoopi Goldberg as the red head.

Short Film: Bruce

Short Film: Bruce

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).
