Shorts II

50 A Slice of Life

Peanut butter on bread is nothing but mouth glue without some jelly on another slice of bread.

49 Table 7

I’m not sure why the uploader disabled ratings & comments on this video because I like it a lot and have nowhere to express my approval except here :(

48 Back To The Start

Who knew Chipotle could make such a cute video? I still don’t trust corporate propaganda [I mean, who knows what McD Corp is really doing to support sustainable farming?], but the video is very well-made.

47 Eyrie

This one might start somewhat slowly, but I highly recommend watching it to the end.

46 Plot Device

Specialeffectsspecialeffectsspecialeffects…the making-of video is definitely worth watching for anyone interested in SFX.

45 Last Donut of the Night

This is actually a music video, but it does tell an interesting story so I’ll include it on this list. I hope to be able to make such fascinating music videos someday!

44 Crossover

My camera crashed while watching this, but I made sure to go back and see the rest of it because the camera work is that beautiful.

43 Who’s Afraid of Mr. Greedy?

Um, I am, now.

42 Overtime

A human can become emotionally attached to his puppet friends, but what happens when that human passes away?

41 Blik

In this uniquely styled short about first love, the nuances of human interaction are captured perfectly despite the lack of facial expressions.

40 Quimby The Mouse

I don’t even know what to say about this one other than to warn you that it’s deceptively charming…

39 Hambuster

In Soviet Russia, hamburger eats YOU! Some scenes may cause squeamishness.

38 Carrot vs Ninja

I didn’t quite understand this one until the end, but the cinematography throughout is quite good.

37 Death Buy Lemonade

Kids these days grow up to be tough business dealers. Don’t mess!

36 A Love Story … In Milk

I’ll never quite look at milk cartons the same way again. And neither will you, unless you’re heartless.

35 Creep (Radiohead) – Scala & Kolacny Brothers

This stop-motion short does justice to one of my favorite songs. Have you ever felt lonely?

34 MTV 2011

Not exactly a short film, but cool enough to make the list.

33 The Smartest Dog In The World

(Another dog one???) I first thought this would be an exposé against cats, but just watch and see.

32 Sweet & Sour

A homeless dog walks through Chinatown, the stylistic representation of Chinatown of which is superb. The conflict is not what you might expect, but bear with it.

31 Leave Me

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Shorter than I expected, but no less thought provoking. Might have to watch it a few times…

30 Minuscule Fly Makes Fun Of Small Spider

Everybody knows that flies are evil…or are they? There are a lot more of similar videos to be found here.

29 My Father’s Garden

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Is it possible for a camera to make things look better than seeing it with your own eyes? Of course.

28 Pacman: The Movie Trailer

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Is this the true story behind Pacman games? The evil Saw puppet would be proud.

27 Video Game Health Care Bill

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Not exactly a short film, but who can resist President Obama giving a rousing speech to deserving [& undeserving] video game characters from across all levels?

26 Fard de Luis Briceno et David Alapont

Vodpod videos no longer available.

You think it’s just a flashlight, but it’s actually so much more. [The short is in French but you can still get an idea of the plot without knowing the language.]

Yet another video in the half-animated-half-real genre, this piece beautifully depicts a revolution [of sorts] of arcade games.
