 I made this for a Kino London challenge for which I had to make a short film combining the following two elements:

1) The entire world wakes up one morning with squeaky voices, 


2) "Revenge of the Folksinger."

Some of you may remember that I posted a link to a short film called The Dirty Comet, which was written and directed by Oanis Rawbone. If you missed the original post, you can find it at:

Oanis has recently made another short film that I think is an absolute cracker. It's called Corpus, and it follows below:

At  you'll find a flash animation in four parts, presenting an explanation - I would not call it the explanation - of the Kubrick film. 

It's kind of interesting, but a bit on the long side, so you'll need to allow nearly half an hour to watch all four parts.

According to the info box on youtube, this was shot in 30 minutes using only 8 minutes of tape. (Then they spent three weeks adding in the special effects. Which ain't too shabby!)

Everything you need to know is in the subject line. ;)

Before Neill Blomkamp made District 9, he made a short film (a little over five minutes long... if you don't count the credits) called Alive in Joberg. 

If you haven't seen District 9, you may want to be wary of potential spoilers, though I seriously doubt seeing the short film on which District 9 was based is going to lessen your enjoyment of the feature-length version. If anything, I think it's more likely to enhance it.

Josh Westbury, of the team behind Too Much Too Soon, has links to a couple of my favourite entries in this year's Sci-Fi London 48 hour film challenge.

Woo-hoo! I've been waiting for this one to come up on youtube.

I first met Josh Westbury, aka Sci-Fi Gene, at a screening of this year's Sci-Fi London 48 hour challenge entries. Though we were on opposing teams, we not only didn't get into a fight but "peace broke out" to such an extent that Josh even accompanied Team Deathstar Holiday Chalets to lunch, and has been keeping in touch with all of us since.

(In fact, it was an email from Josh that led to my discovery the other day that I have my own youtube channel. Which came as a surprise -- I honestly had no idea. Of course the first thing I did on discovering this was to favourite all three of the videos in which I was involved, so they can now all be found in one place.)  But I digress. ;) 

Josh's team, Second Foundation, was assigned the following criteria:

Title: Too Much Too Soon
Required Dialogue: "Choose your spot and mark it with an X - it'll still be there on your return"
Required Props: Three passports from three different countries.

And -- despite spending a good part of their allotted 48 hours dodging angry security guards around Canary Wharf -- they managed to produce a film with a lovely sense of fun and some cracking special effects (which you can marvel at below).

I've seen it all before. 

First this happens: Alien lifeform wakened from 120,000 year Arctic slumber...

...and then this happens. 

Put on your surgical masks now.

This was made by the same guy who made Star Trek in 47 seconds. (FWIW, this one really cracked me up.)

I admit to being easily amused, but this did make me laugh. And it's only 47 seconds long. (Actually one minute and three seconds, but who's counting?)
