A Gentleman’s Duel: Crazed Noblemen, Gigantic Robots and Voluptuous Huge Boobs

A Gentleman’s Duel: Crazed Noblemen, Gigantic Robots and Voluptuous Huge Boobs

A Gentleman’s Duel is a hilarious, maniacal CGI short film created by Francisco Valasco and Sean McNally from the California visual effects studio Blur.  At a wealthy Lady’s grand Manor, the elegantly dressed woman with bounteous décolletage is zealously courted by two crazed gentlemen.  A genteel afternoon tea party at the Lady’s Manor quickly degenerates into a full-fledged duel between the two competing aristocrats, both of whom are outfitted with steam-driven gargantuan-sized, fully loaded armored mecha-suits.  Destruction reigns supreme throughout the Manor and its gardens, as the two horny psycho-noblemen tear up the Lady’s property in their efforts to win her “boobies.”  A gentleman’s lust for life is never to be questioned unless, of course, it involves fierce dueling in Goliath-sized mechanical jumpsuits in a bloodthirsty quest to win the Lady’s voluptuous boobies.  Will there be a last man standing?  And what about the poor damsel?

Heavenly Calm: Water and Color

Heavenly Calm: Water and Color

Water and Color is a beautiful, calming four-minute CG animated short film by Iranian filmmaker Hassan Rezakhani.  Computer graphics animation was born abstract, with photo realism coming later.  This film provides a wonderful example of abstract animation, where the distinctions between microcosm and macrocosm are blurred, or completely disappear.  The stunning images in this short film could be galaxies colliding, or gametes fusing together or fantasies overlapping.  Whatever they depict, they’re engagingly peaceful.

Lights Out: The Little Robotic Guy Tries to Sleep

Lights Out: The Little Robotic Guy Tries to Sleep

Lights Out is a very wacky one-minute CG animated short created by Irish filmmaker Cormac Kelly.  The film follows the travails of a poor little robotic guy who’s trying to grab some shut-eye, but the factory around him suddenly springs to life.  A serious design flaw in the factory’s ergonomics prevents the poor guy from reaching the off-switch, and the rest is history!  This piece presents the original incarnation of the animation from Dublin’s Piranhabar reception desk, as well as a fantastic re-shoot of the animation that includes stereo sound effects.

The two animated shorts must be watched in HD Full-Screen Mode!

OneDreamRush/China: A Ridiculously Obscure, Intoxicating Dream of Life

OneDreamRush/China: A Ridiculously Obscure, Intoxicating Dream of Life

OneDreamRush: China is a 42-second short film directed by Maxim Zhestkov and Matt Pyke at Universal Everything.  The film is one of the 2009 Beijing Independent Film Festival’s 42 short films, each one being only 42-seconds long and based on the common question, “How do we dream?”  OneDreamRush: China is a ridiculously obscure and confusing little film, but at the same time it’s intoxicating in a mesmerizing sense.  The film is truly intriguing, taking an average thought or feeling that seems so ordinary to each and every one of us and then soaring out to other dimensions, into the realm of the extraordinary.  In the directors’ sense of creativity, they twist, tweak and turn an ordinary, average, everyday emotion (or dream) in totally unanticipated ways.  By the time this 42-second short film reaches its unforeseen finale, they’ve managed to turn the obscurely mundane into a larger than life feeling within each of us.

The Flea Circus: The Amazing Antics of a Merry Band of Fleas!

The Flea Circus: The Amazing Antics of a Merry Band of Fleas!

I fell into a burnin’ ring of fire.
I went down, down, down, and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns, that ring of fire, that ring of fire.
I fell into a burning ring of fire.
I went down, down, down, and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns, that ring of fire, that ring of fire.

Flea Circus is a very funny 1 1/2 min. animated short film directed by David Daniels, Jim Clark and Ray Di Carlo. Through the ages, the flea circus has been been viewed as the shady work of charlatans and frauds. But behold! New discoveries have revealed that the flea circus has been real all along. Now the little fleas in the circus right here before your very eyes have set out to perform their daring feats with great bravado and style, but alas the teeny varmints are having no luck at all in successfully completing their routines. Nothing seems to go right for this band of merry fleas, but their embarrassingly clumsy mishaps do end up creating a wonderfully entertaining performance!
