The Best Short Films

Why Watch? A young kid’s sneakers pound the pavement, running away from the bullies that stole his bike. As he rounds a corner, he tries to blend in with a group of thugs, and it works, but as he is welcomed into their group, he starts to understand the price of friendship. With crisp camera work (Zeiss lenses/Sigma 1.4) and a sound design that places you right on the streets if you close your eyes, Clifton Archuleta‘s short is an excellent portrayal of dangerous youth living in a world made difficult mostly by themselves. Ultimately, it’s a story about choices and our power to make the difficult ones. What will it cost? Only 12 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films


The Best Short Films

Why Watch? These days, getting noticed can often be a matter of having outrageous effects, a slick animation or a shocking idea that turns heads. Because that’s become the norm, it’s even more shocking when simple emotion hooks you without letting go. Jonas (Edmund Lyndeck, who’s probably most famous as the crazy drunk in Big Daddy) is an umbrella salesman trying to make it through a rain-less summer and a loneliness filled with memories. For anyone who’s ever had a sweet old grandfather who stuck to his antique guns even when modern times made him seem out-moded, Kevin Slack‘s short film is a celebration of faith and tenderness that also happens to be gorgeously shot. It’s a short movie that quietly rises above a noisy fray. What will it cost? Only 10 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films.
