Patrick Boivin

Iron Man vs Bruce Lee

Why Watch? Let’s pretend for a second like the title and concept didn’t snag you already. With funk trumpets blaring in the background, Patrick Boivin‘s short fight scene is a pinpoint example of execution meeting the spark of a concept. Not simply content to deliver quirky fun, Boivin has crafted something technically impressive that plasters smiles on faces like it’s its job. Plus, there’s even a hint of a story (who knew that was really Iron Man’s secret identity?). This is a hell of an entertaining film, and it’s no surprise that it comes from the guy who made these. What will it cost? Around 1 minute. Skip Work. Watch More Short Films.

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Some short films deliver the first act to a longer story while some execute a quick, complete concept and still more are completely abstract. Then, there are short films that exist purely for fun. The internet has given a kind of unfair advantage to those kinds of flicks (and the wacky video cousins that own the lead when it comes to YouTube views), but this particular short kicks so hard in the family jewels that you can do nothing but laugh and rewatch it. What’s it about? A baby, a dragon, and a fight to the death. Now where’s the hilariously bad overdubbing? What will it cost you? Only 1 minute or an entire hour if you count replays. Skip work. Watch more short films.

Why Watch? Quick and clever with some fantastic, simple effects work, this short glues together puppy love, Star Wars fanaticism, and even manages a Sidney Lumet reference with its title. When he was younger, director Patrick Boivin wanted a dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker toy. He never got them. But now, he has this. What Will It Cost? Just 1 minute of your time. Does it get better any better than that? Check out AT-AT Day Afternoon for yourself:
