There’s lots of good things in February. Production begins for the year’s surprise […]

    The Most Underrated Alien Short Film, Ever

    You’ve found it! This is the short film which District 9, produced by Peter Jackson, is based on. Not a lot of people know this – and it’ll sore you extra points in your next quiz, for sure.

    Underrated, business-themed short film?

    Everdream Pictures of short film EXPO fame have come back with a 20-minute whopper ‘Ten Thousand Hours’.

    The trail for this short reads: “Professor White, cryptographer extraordinaire, is on the trail of the notoriously uncrackable Thomas Beale cipher, a century-old riddle hiding the location of a fortune in gold.

    Jane’s Underrated (STOP MOTION!) Short Film of the Month

    July! The best month ever. It’s time to show you a film I’d been watching secretly everyday last year when it came out after the London Film Festival. But ’tis a secret no more. Here’s an independent stop motion film about Larry, whose face is shot into space on a gold record by NASA in […]

  • Jane’s Underrated (Holiday!) Short Film Of The Month

    Jane’s Underrated (Holiday!) Short Film Of The Month

    Makes you want to be there. It really works as a tourist video – but it feels like so much more than that: an evocation of a lifestyle. A surreal glimpse into a catalogue. A life dreamed of…. and a Vimeo staff pick back in the day (natch!). It’s absolutely wonderful, especially for June, that […]

    While We’re Waiting for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar….

    While we’re waiting for Chris ‘n’ Jon Nolan’s Interstellar movie (damn it, why’d you have to write stuff about about the general relativity before I got the chance to study it fully and….gah!!!) here’s an incredible Contact-esque film about time travel. Or, at least, humans on a spaceship who don’t forgo the conclusion of normal […]
