Where I’m From: JAY Z Barclays Center Documentary


In this short documentary, JAY Z’s Life+Times takes an unprecedented behind the scenes look at the creation of JAY Z’s Barclays Center opening concerts.


An Amped Up Drug Fueled Animated Short.

It took four talented students over five months (and “about a bajillion peanut butter sandwiches”) to create the amped up animation short, Mac ‘n’ Cheese. The Dutch animation team, Tom Hankins, Gijs van Kooten, Guido Puijk, Roy Nieterau, created this piece as fourth year students at Utrecht School of the Arts in the Netherlands. The team was inspired by action game Team Fortress 2 and another great animated short, Meet Buck.

When you find yourself running scared and running out of energy, there’s only a few options left to outrun your opponent through the southern desert. Stopping at nothing, watch these two guys wear each other out and rip through boundaries hitherto unbroken. Enjoy the ride!

Even a bit of the Grateful Dead’s classic rock song, Casey Jones is thrown in for good measure.


A December To Remember.

Normally when you think about horror, the month that comes to mind is October.  However, the folks over at 328 Studios have cooked up a different tail of horror.  Creepy, edgy, and ending with quite the shocking twist, this epically original short film tell a terrifying tale from an angle you wouldn’t expect.  I highly suggest you watch the entire thing until it’s end.


The ‘Bottle’ Movie.

“Bottle”, is a funky little stop-motion animation by Kirsten Lepore.  Its not often I happen to run into a short film this intriguing,  So check the method below, Kirsten has crafted something truly magical here, a story with a heart and a soul.

The Saga Of Biorn.

A fantastic short film with top-notch art direction, animation and sound design. The ending is great, too. We have Benjamin J. Kousholt, Daniel D. Christensen, Mads Lundgaard Christensen, Jesper A. Jensen, Jonas K. Doctor, Steffen Lyhne, Pernille Ørum-Nielsen, Frederik Bjerre-Poulsen and Jonas Georgakakis to thank for putting this together.  It’s ridiculous how sick the concept, the animation, and the script are all exceptional.  Well done.

Skateboarding in the Empty Pools of California’s Recession

The short film “Cannonball” artfully follows a group of skaters in search of newly empty pools behind foreclosed homes in and around the arid sprawl of Fresno other inland California suburbs that have been blighted by the housing collapse and ensuing recession. It has some NSFW language, but it’s undeniably powerful—and a poignant meditation on greed, materialism, and an enduring kind of joy.
