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.
Boston College student Ryan does a literal take on Paper Mario with Paper Mario Bros. 3; it took 36 hours, 300 frames, and was made with paper, colored pencils, glue, and cardboard.
Illustrated by VFS student Marco Carmona, Dance! is a simple film with a literally moving message that you’ll hear loud and clear: dance, dance against the dying of the light.
Sure, Junkworks’ E.T.A. may be a sci-fi short film, but interstellar truck driver Marvin is a not so far-fetched look into our futures where life imitates art–however horrifyingly banal.
It’s a somewhat incoherent mix of Star Wars, 2001, and 2012, but sci-fi short film Energy Hunter scores points for excellent cinematography and some truly stunning locations.
Muzorama was created in six weeks and based on the work of illustrator Jean-Philippe Masson; it’s a surreal animated short film that literally has us losing our heads over the details.
Quietus (Part 1, Part 2) is a glacially slow sci-fi short but still intriguing; it was shot on an 8k budget, filmed in the style of Kubrick’s 2001, and uses the same Death Valley locations as Star Wars.
