Short Film Of The Day: The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow

Why Watch? This is what it might look like if Ken Burns ever made a horror film. This experimental, animated work focuses on a mysterious photograph from the 1930s, and as the camera ducks and dives and expands our view, we find a lot of hidden elements that help solve the puzzle of what’s going on.

Gorgeously done with an antique sensibility, it’s a Fantastic Fest alum that might not be for everyone, but if it hits you the right way, it’s delightfully peculiar.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.

Check out the trailer for The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow for yourself:


Trust us. You have time for more short films.
