When it comes to crafting compelling visual experiences, few short filmmakers can match Paul Trillo. We’ve featured Mr. Trillo’s work several times on this site before. His latest, The Irrational Fear of Nothing, only continues our unabashed love affair. Supplanting viewers into the mind of a paranoid, neurotic man by using a very unique third person perspective, Trillo concocts a hypnotic visual treat—a film that is as technically amazing as it is thought-provoking.
Taking the Plunge is a cute little short animation film that shows the hijinks a person could get into when he accidentally drops an engagement ring into the ocean. Meet an adorable sidekick octopus, dodge an evil giant shark, explore the underworld of the ocean and still manage to get the girl at the end.
Watch this. Now. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It’s done in the style of anime from the 80’s and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings and is pretty much so awesome that Disney should make this an entire movie.
