Three Must-See Short Films

March 2, 2010

Over the last couple of days I’ve stumbled across some fantastic short films. Here are a couple of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as I did!

Pivot is an incredible short designed and animated by: Kevin Megens, Floris Vos, Arno de Grijs, André Bergs with music and sound design by Alex Debicki. As you can tell from the above screen shot, it’s incredibly stylistic; but don’t let the visuals mislead you, there’s a great story in its frames too. Here’s a brief synopsis I found on the film’s Vimeo page:

When a man is witness to a murder and takes pictures of the killer, he has to run for his life. During the chase he is able to turn the tables and the prey becomes the hunter. All resulting in an unfortunate ending.

This one is definitely a must-see. You can watch it in its entirety by clicking here. Thanks to for turning me on to this!

Not too long ago, I wrote about a site I discovered called Peta Pixel in my entry, Does the Average Person Recognize Great Art? If you didn’t check out what they are doing then, here’s another great reason to. Michael Zhang, recently continued his streak of sharing seriously awesome art with his post, A Day in the Life of New York City in which he wrote about The Sandpit an unbelievable short film by Sam O’Hare that shows New York City in miniature. Before clicking over, be prepared to have your mind blown.
