SFotD: ‘Real Artists’ Wears Its Weird Heart On Its Head

Why Watch? Feeling like an updated cousin of the 90s MTV animation line-up with a hint of Real World via Tumblr thrown in for good measure, this freestyle multimedia short blends live-action environments with disaffected animated characters. They have the usual sort of 20-something issues, but one of them has a heart for a head and another is a snowman. Just for example.

It’s wry and fun, and at five minutes, it’s just the right size punch line.  Plus, it comes with a hip soundtrack, a great sense of comic timing and a visual hook that’s blissfully endearing. Produced by Ashton Kutcher and Thrash Lab, from animator Tim Bierbaum, it’s the first in a planned web series.

What will it cost you? Only 5 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
