A Twisted, Psychopathic Bloody-Evil Tale Wins 2012 Vimeo Film Festival Award

Blinky™: A Twisted, Psychopathic Full-Evil Bloody Robot

Soon every home will have a robot helper. Don’t worry. It’s perfectly safe.”

Blinky™, a wickedly evil 3D-CG animated short horror film by the Irish filmmaker Ruairi Robinson, won The Best Narrative Film/Video Award (live-action narrative fiction told through the medium of film/video) last week at The 2012 Vimeo Festival +Awards. Previously, Robinson broke through to great acclaim with his 3D short film, Fifty Percent Grey, which was nominated for an Oscar in 2002 and followed it up in 2006 with The Silent City, a post-apocalyptic short film starring Cillian Murphy.

Blinky™ is shot with visual execution that is truly masterful, and the story is as bloody creepy as it gets. The amazing thirteen-minute short film stars Max Records from Where The Wild Things Are and tells the story of an angst-ridden young boy, who is trapped in a well-to-do, yet toxic home environment where his parents are constantly fighting. For Christmas he requests and gets Blinky™, the latest robot friend/home helper. But will the twisted and increasingly sinister Blinky™ actually turn out to be the true friend the distraught boy desperately wants and needs? Well, so sadly, very probably not….

Pizza Verdi: An Astoundingly Shocking Suspense-Thriller

Pizza Verdi is a seven-minute suspense-thriller short film by New York filmmaker Gary Nadeau, whose film Red won the 1994 Student Academy Award. In Pizza Verdi, a seemingly routine pizza delivery to a luxurious Manhattan apartment rapidly escalates into a tense operatic game of cat-and-mouse, and we soon realize that perhaps there’s more to this story than first meets the eye. Giuseppe Verdi provides the soundtrack for this quintessential New York tale, a spellbinding film that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat right up to its astoundingly shocking conclusion.

Hezarfen: A Turbulently Thrilling Saga of the Astonishing Feat of First Human Flight

Hezarfen: A Turbulently Thrilling Saga of the Astonishing Feat of First Human Flight

Hezarfen is a joyously slapstick three-minute 3D animated short film by Tolga Ari, Romain Blanchet, Chung-Yu Huang and Rémy Hurlin, who are recent graduates of Supinfocom Arles. The film takes place in 1632 in Turkey and presents the trials and tribulations of Hezarfen, a citizen of Istanbul who folklore credits with having attempted to make the first human flight with artificial wings in the history of aviation. Legend claims that Hezarfen actually took off from atop the 183-foot tall Galata Tower near Bosporus and landed successfully at Uskudar, almost 3 miles away from the Galata Tower.

This film focuses primarily on how Hezarfen managed to jump from that lofty, truly sky-high tower. As he prepared to jump and launch into flight, a large crowd of townspeople stopped their work to gaze up at the tower, watching with astonishment at the sight of Hezarfen perched on top with flimsy wings attached. In short order, many of them ended up actually getting drawn into the breath-taking drama, as an unforeseen chain of events rapidly began to unfold. The initially courageous-seeming undertaking soon became a turbulently comical misadventure, a wacky escapade that demonstrates the high price imposed by attempts to execute schemes that are really peculiar and strange. Such offbeat strivings for bizarre pioneering achievement can so quickly degenerate into absurdly sparkling calamity.

Tell-Tale: An Erotic Film-Noir Thriller

Tell-Tale is a powerful, intriguing film-noir thriller by the acclaimed English photographer Greg Williams.  Carrying on the cinematic tradition of Femme Fatale films, Williams’ dramatic directorial debut takes the preconceptions of this character type and uses them to create a visually striking short with an ever-twisting narrative.  Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s The Telltale Heart, the short film is a story of devotion and guilt that is carried out with smoldering visual flair and flamboyant confidence.
