This will be the last post on short films from me, mainly because these films are all around 5-8 minutes long and after the peer evaluation I wanted to use shorter videos but… these short films are just very good. This film is called “Too Shy” and is from young filmmaker Ryan Hutchins. I was shown his work from a friend and I was immediately impressed. My mind is usually very imaginative and concerned with metaphysical and science fiction topics, especially when I make my own films. When I saw this film at first I thought I’d hate it. I hate dramas and I truly despise stories about love, because I personally that humans tend to complicate love, but that’s another topic. So with that being said it makes this film that much more impressive that it was able to break through my heart made of stone. This short film runs for 8 minutes and has many emotional ups and downs, but the payoff at the end is incredibly authentic and beautiful. I hope you will all take the time to watch this one because I feel like it is the most widely appealing of all the short films I posted. Enjoy!

Another day, another short film. After the peer review I wanted to start using shorter videos. Ideally 2-3 minutes in length but no more than 5 minutes. While this video is beyond 5 minutes it is still undoubtably worth the 15 minutes it takes to watch. Logorama is an animated short that is comprised only of famous logos which makes for quite the interesting concept. The story is a narrative story that finds three sets of characters intertwined in a mess on a very apocalyptic day. I usually like pieces of art that I could never attempt and this is one of those cases. I’d never want to be an animator or work in animation but I am fascinated by that medium. This is another film that just left me speechless after the first time I saw it and the content of the film is a stark contrast to the cutesy animation. Watch in awe and try to spot as many logos as you can! Enjoy!
This is the second post in my series focusing on great short films. For those of you who missed the last post it was about the animated short Alma. This time around we’re going to depart from the animated form and go with something totally different: a psychological thriller. INSiDE does a great job of getting us into the head of a schizophrenic man with multiple personality disorder. This film truly succeeds by just giving us just a glimpse into his mind and not over bearing the audience with countless scenes that blur reality with fantasy. I think that all the talent involved with the film hit their froles dead on and the open forum of their talking and arguing truly makes us feel the burden of the main character’s condition. Complete with an awesome little twist this is one of my favorite shorts that I’ve seen. INSiDE was directed by Trevor Sands in 2002 and stars the always enigmatic Jeremy Sisto.
