We love the film genre of short films. It is where some of the most innovative, and creative filmmaking is done. But, in the vast expanses of the Internet it's hard to uncover the magical gems amongst the hoards of crap. That’s why we started the series a few weeks ago called Sunday in Shorts. Each week, Nick Baber scours the web to bring you some of the best short films from up and coming filmmakers around the world. We started the series a few weeks ago, and to get you caught up (on the off chance you missed one of the articles), we’ve compiled a roundup of three Sunday in Shorts. So take time to pull out that chaise lounge, kick back and relax, and check out some of the best short films being made today.
1). Prop Wars.
Filmmaker Emmanuel Kodio sets his camera on a father and son, their relationship made difficult by one’s admiration of the late and great mime, Marcel Marceau.
Jason Willis brings us his Sundance Audience Award winning short film, Catnip: Egress to Oblivion. Imagine the 1936 Reefer Madness which informed parents of the dangers their children faced using marijuana; with children replaced with cats and marijuana with catnip et voilà, a perfect piece of comedic catnip propaganda.
