Short Film of the Day: Porcelain Unicorn

Why Watch? Because sentimentality never dies.

This short got some attention when it won a contest created by the Phillips Corporation which had a few restraining parameters in place. The films could only have six lines of dialogue, and they had to be:

  • What is that?
  • It’s a unicorn.
  • Never seen one up close before.
  • Beautiful.
  • Get away, Get away!
  • I’m sorry.

It’s pretty limiting, but this short is a phenomenal example of where limitations can create something truly inspired.

What does it cost? Just 3 minutes of your time.
