A two-part video essay, a study in contrasts of the American landscape, two animated shorts, a slice of magic realism, another short comedy by Jason Headley... it's all here on this weekend's selection of cool short filmmaking.
We've got a fascination look at the making of a dragon's egg from the TV show Game of Thrones, we've got an imaginative music video, two cool piece of animation (one of which explains what a video editor actually does), we've got a moody short film, and we've got a beautifully-photographed ode to an American city.
Amazing stop-motion animation, a very cool documentary about a skateboarder, another beautifully-shot op-ed piece, a short film by Danny Sangra, and a clever advertisement make up our selection for this weekend.
Two very strong lead performances by young actresses, two examples of stellar animation work, a quality music video, and a humorous take on corporate videos that utilize stock footage make up our selection. And to cap it all we have the entire existing playlist of Action Movie Kid videos. If you don't know about the series yet, now is a great time to learn.
We've got buskers (documentary, and animated); we've got a very cool music video (with narration by Brett Easton Ellis); we've got Superman's POV; we've got an essay analysing filmmaker Wes Anderson's visual aesthetic; we've got an effective little short horror piece; and a French love story.
We revisit the world of The Matrix with a fan film; the short film Social Butterfly explores some interesting dramatic places, as does The Naturalist; you could meet a really cute robot, feast your eyes on a pretty piece of motion design, and have your mind boggled by Nick Goepper's skill on a ski slope.
We've got pretty people in a fashion film; some killer effects work in a short about drones; we've got epic animation; a slow-burner that delivers tight performances; a short film about popcorn, and a impressionistic short documentary about dock workers in Dubai.
