Leo Burton

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Blood Creek, as it turns out, is an incredibly popular spot for duels. Also, coordinating different duels was pretty confounding, and there were a shit ton of them back in the day. This short from Leo Burton layers chaos upon poetically insulting language and manages to build a strong, funny story out of what could have easily been a 5-minute sketch. Instead of toying with one odd concept, it toys with 2 or 3 to create something truly special. Plus, it’s aided by great camera work and the star of the show – a boisterous, rousing old-timey score. Oh, and talk about a finish. Genius. Pure genius. What will it cost? Only 14 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films

Just 5 minutes of your time. Check out Paul’s Meditation for yourself:
