Isolated – Short Film Pick

ISOLATED from Peak Pictures on Vimeo.

Animated or not this short film captures your attention from start to finish. Isolated by Peak Pictures is a small slice of what could be a really epic movie, or dope animated web series. The film is set in a dark post apocalyptic city where we find our lead character waking up inside a wrecked taxi cab, and did we mention there was a dead body in he back seat with a hole in his head? No…well then maybe I should of said spoiler alert..ah well…..

Through flash backs and natural story progression we see what events led up to the start of the film. One of the highlights of this short is how it seamlessly blends fast paced Hollywood action sequences and first person view of the events. We go from watching as an audience to experiencing it first had through the eyes of our lead character.

Needless to say this Animated Short feels like your watching a live action flick and leaves you wanting more. At only 5 minutes well worth the watch!

LOOT(Remix)

A few months back while browsing through No Film School’s site, I saw a post regarding a Short Film by Ayz Waraich and Martin Wisniewski called LOOT. They released the film with the intentions of having other filmmakers remix the film and put their own spin on it. They hoped others would take their work- chop and screw it up- creating brand new works of visual art. The original film was made with a $500 budget and an experienced crew but this no budget flick was intended as a way to give back to the film community. They had fun shooting the film and in turn wanted other filmmakers to have fun remixing it. This is just WiseMind Film’s interpretation of that short film, Hope you enjoy. I have included a link to the original post from NoFilmSchool which lead me here so you can read up and actually watch the original version! Original Post Here

As I was scouring the web for a quick film fix! I went to one of my usual places to search for cinematic treasures (Shortoftheweek.com) and I stumbled upon this gem. At only 4 minutes long, this is another great example of why I enjoy short films so much. The story, albeit not a very complex one, still grabs your attention right from the jump. After a few seconds of watching a coin spinning we see a lonely skater who happens to ride past it but his attention was immediately drawn to the coin. Once the skater examines the coin and puts it in the meter the action commences. Continue reading
