And Now, A Man On A Flamingo Fights Mystical Black Sludge With Plant Magic

Video: In addition to having an amazing premise, this short from Naleb is downright beautiful to look at. And at a minute long, “Vestiges” in no way wears out its welcome.


Captain Phasma Has More Lines In This LEGO Short Than She Does In The Force Awakens

Video: Poor Captain Phasma, the Boba Fett of The Force Awakens. But where the movie itself failed to live up to Phasma’s incredible hype, this new goofy short from LEGO at least gives her a bit more to do.


What If You Accidentally Started The Robot Uprising?

Video: This is the face of a man who has just realised he’s doomed the human race.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe's One-Shots Could Be Reborn Online

Remember Marvel’s “One-Shot” bonus shorts? They used to be included in the home release of Marvel movies, and gave us things like post-Avengers weirdness, the best of pre-Agents of SHIELD Coulson, as well as our first look at Agent Carter. Marvel stopped doing them, but it looks like they might be returning to the idea.


Bad Dad Makes Robot Father For His Child

Video: You know how, when you think you’re failing as a parent, you just go and build a robot version who will succeed where you failed? Yeah, the short film “PAPA” is about that feeling.


Intense Sci-Fi Film Shot Entirely In Moonlight Looks Completely Alien

23.2 lightyears from Earth sits the Scorpius Constellation, where scientists are working on an artificial biosphere that can harbour human life. And perhaps some other forms of life too.


Fab Sauce Is One Of The Most Disturbing Animations I've Seen In A While

Video: Adult Swim has new promotional shorts, and they are fantastically weird. This one is Fab Sauce, a film about a sauce so good that it makes every object, plant and animal irresistibly delicious. Humans too. John Carpenter should do a movie based on this.


Time Travel Probably Isn't A Good Idea If This Short Film Is Anything To Go By

Video: In 2247, time travel will be invented. Its only restriction? You can only travel back in time three minutes. It becomes a new safety feature for space travellers called Timedrive. Every ship will be fitted with it as a safety requirement. That’s the plot of a great new short film called Exit Log, and while it sounds good in theory, it’s a terrible idea in practice.


Watch This Oscar-Nominated Short: Adam And Dog

Not every Oscar-worthy film is a mammoth, Speilbergian effort. Small stuff’s good too, and what better showcase than the Oscar nominated animated shorts. You’ve probably heard of Paperman, and the animation tech behind it, but another one, Adam and Dog has popped up on YouTube and it’s worth a watch.


Monday Night Web Movie: Robbie

When I want to get my wife something, my mind usually wanders through the usual suspects: flowers, chocolates, a nice night out, perhaps. This demonstrates my failure as a husband, because if I really loved her, I’d do what fellow Aussie Neil Harvey did: I’d spend three months going through NASA’s archival footage to make her an incredible short film.
