Short Film of the Week
Short Film of the Week
Virgin Media Shorts is the UK’s biggest short film competition, giving both established and emerging British film makers the opportunity to have their work showcased to millions on cinema screens nationwide, on Virgin Media’s TV on demand platform, on mobile and online. We meet film-maker Luke Snellin, whose film Charlie opened this years competition, to get the low-down on love, death and putting on his DJ voice to impress the chicks.
Charlie, directed by Luke Snellin, is a wonderful tribute to Charlie Chaplin, the comedy genius of the silent era. For two minutes of joy, watch this launch film for Virgin Media Shorts 2011. It’s a cracker!
You tell her you love her and she loves you. Things have never felt better. But one day, you notice something about her you hadn’t noticed before. Watch our latest Short Film of the Week, FOCUS.
One Word, created by James Cuff, was created to promote the Sunday Times Short Story Award. This charming short film highlights the potential terror of iPhone’s autocorrect function…
Sometimes it’s not all about the box office. Sometimes it’s not even all about film festivals and Cannes. Sometimes it’s about the glory of hobby film making, of quirky scripting and dragging uni friends to a lighthouse thingy to create a real-life Miyazaki-flavoured oddity. God bless ‘Mildly Interesting Films’!
Spider is a creepy-crawly urban tale from the talented director/stuntman Nash Edgerton (Star Wars, Matrix) who helped found the Oz film collective that brought you Animal Kingdom. Watch 9 minutes of needles, spiders and childish behaviour from grown-ups now…
We’re always happy to check out a film short featuring not only a mermaid but a stunt mermaid, and not only a Keith but a Keith from The Office. We interview the twisty creators of Fish! (one of them was in Doctor Who you know) before they go and peddle their filmy flesh at Cannes 2011.
Damn Your Eyes is a Grindhouse Western about an eyeless badass cowboy who drinks goat’s milk and goes from town to town exacting bloody revenge on a past wrong. Creative swearing, smoke-filled saloons, Oedipal complexes and blood seeping into sawdust… what more could any Westploitation fan wish for?
