Short films

Totally second check out the BMW short films... They are awesome.



Bobby Yeah - Must bump to post this twisted stop motion film from Robert Morgan (a really under acknowledged short film director). This definitely fits on any rec list specifying weird and messed up movies. The animation is outstanding.


The Cat With Hands - Another good showcase of Morgan's style, while not as inaccessibly weird as Bobby Yeah.



Came across this today and thought I'd share...

Dawn of The Deaf




"I smell sex and candy here" - Marcy Playground
My favourite Jack Daniel's commercial.
