The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Sure, kicking a stool out from under someone is a great way to let them hang, but the villainous, gruff-voiced robot in Rocky Curby‘s unique short film would rather cut through their legs until they swing by the neck. Curby is an artist for Disney, but it looks like he’s been spending some free time on science fiction that isn’t for the kids. It’s a freakish mash-up with a young robot whose shadow has a violent side, an Old West feel and a healthy amount of red stuff. Why do robots bleed in this universe? Who cares. It looks really, really cool. Although the story could flow a bit smoother, the sound design works beautifully to make each moment hit harder, and the visuals are slick and strange enough to keep eyes wide open. Long story short, it’s what might happen if Quentin Tarantino had a parking spot at Disney. What will it cost you? Only 5 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.
