Why Watch? Because Guest Week continues here on Short Film of the Day, and I’m picking a bunch of silly animated shorts that Cole would almost never touch. Perhaps he’s got a thing for the real world. Perhaps I’ve got a child’s mind. Either way, we’re featuring a lot of fun shorts this week.

Today’s short is one that will be familiar to anyone who’s been reading Film School Rejects for several years, as I wrote about it way back in 2009 when it played the Austin Film Festival. Lucas Martell’s Pigeon: Impossible is part spy story, part bird-related comedy and all smooth animated bliss. It’s the tale of Walter, a rather green secret agent who must learn on the fly when a curious pigeon ends up in his multi-million dollar nuclear briefcase. It’s a short that took 5 years to make, but delivered Martell into the spotlight in festivals around the country. Now we’re bringing it back as today’s Short Film of the Day. Why? Because you should watch it again.

What will it cost you? Just six minutes and fourteen seconds of your wild Wednesday.

Your mission: to watch more Short Films.
