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.
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.
Made by IADT Film School student Conor Finnegan using a mix of hand drawn animation, stop motion and live action scenes. Well-meaning Fluffy Mc Cloud gets into trouble, but all’s well that ends well.
A man goes on a cigarette break to relax, but somehow ends up in an awkward situation. Directed by Raphael Sammut, Smoking Will Kill You is one of the finalists at the 2010 Tropfest.
We’re getting hungry just watching this short animated stop-motion flick by Brooklyn animator Lori Samsel. The entire animation was made from Japanese rice crackers. Crunchy and delicious!
This darkly comic stop-motion animation tells the story of a vacationing couple and their encounter with a stranger they’re convinced is the notorious Zodiac Killer. Go behind the scenes here.
Remember Michael Winslow? You know, the guy with the stupid sound effects in the Police Academy flicks? Well, here he is doing what he does best. Here’s your 21 minute history lesson for the day.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Josh Thacker’s Job Security is the latest winner for Chapter 2 of Vimeo’s The Story Beyond the Still contest; judged by Vincent LaForet, entries for Chapter 3 are due 3/22/10.
Freddie Wong’s Real-Life Portal Gun doesn’t reveal anything new to GLaDOS vets, but it does explain why inter-spatial weaponry in the workplace will make you go GLa-DOH!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
