Michael Williams

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Holy. Hell.  It took 6 months and 2 states for Marc Donahue and Michael Williams to create this epic piece of stop-motion mastery called Dream Music: Part 2. The sheer amount of labor (up to 8 hours for each 3-4 seconds of film) is astounding, but what sets it over the top is the attention to detail and the visual connectivity they manage (from bits of nature found in urban areas flowing out of forests to snowboarding on train tracks). Not to mention the overt and subtle nods to the lyrics that push the piece forward. More than mere gimmick, this is transportational filmmaking. Consider the ambitious experiment a success. If there’s a stop-motion piece larger and more detailed than this, I’d love to see it. What will it cost you? “Only” 8 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.
