This will have some overlap with the various YouTube threads, but I thought it would be nice to have a thread linking to short films — not just footage of a kitty falling off a desk or someone driving across the continental United States, but something with a narrative and maybe even credits at the end.
This one, which doesn’t seem to have a consistent title, came out at the start of the year. It’s about Paul Rudd playing a game of “quantum chess” with Dr. Stephen Hawking and is about as nerdy as you’d expect. It’s directed by Alex Winter, who is trying to make a movie about Frank Zappa and used to play teens in movies. I think it’s intended to be edutainment.
“Hyper-Reality” is a really interesting short that was posted a few months ago. The main POV character shows desperation in a near-future of augmented reality.
