What are some of your favorite short films?
Here's a recent one that I loved:
Jem Cohen's Lost Book Found really left an impression on me. Of course Don Hertzfeld's stuff. Spike Jonze has a couple great ones, I'm Here and We Were Once a Fairytale are really strong.
Classic, but what I think of in this category
Are we counting animated? Cause I could be making this post for days.
As far as important experimental stuff goes, Wavelength is excellent
World of Tomorrow. I think it's still on Netflix. Set aside 20 minutes and watch it.
My top 10:
1. I'm Here (Spike Jonze; 2010)
2. La Jetée (Chris Marker; 1962)
3. Voices Of A Distant Star (Makoto Shinkai; 2003)
4. Night And Fog (Alain Resnais; 1956)
5. The Big Snit (Richard Condie; 1985)
6. The Grandmother (David Lynch; 1970)
7. Signs (Patrick Hughes; 2008)
8. Day & Night (Teddy Newton; 2010)
9. Genre (Don Hertzfeldt; 1996)
10. The Wrong Trousers (Nick Park; 1993)
Randomly picked this out to watch today and was blown away. Watched it again a few hours later and cried. Came rushing to the forums to see if anyone had acknowledged it on the site and this is one of the only posts I could find!
So, I'm seconding this months-old recommendation.
