These are some short documentaries I found online and I thought you all might like to have a gander. I’ve been getting in to watching short indie docs ever since I helped make ‘Look Up‘ at the BFI academy. Some pretty interesting, if not a bit weird, stuff.
All are sourced from a website called ‘Short of the Week.’
The first is called ‘The Apology Line‘. The director posted flyers encouraging members of the public to leave an anonymous apology on the answering machine. These audio clips are played over static city shots and people living their day-to-day private lives.
Another is ‘Avatar Days’, a look at the contrast between reality and escapism role-playing games, merging the two together with 3D animation and interviews with avid world of warcraft players.
I’m not really sure what this film ‘Ryan‘ is about, except that it’s really weird but I like it.
