So the Oscars came and went, ans as always the most interesting films, were the ones given the least attention. I'm talking of course about the short movies, which not only packs a tighter entertainment punch than their feature brethren, but also gives a very interesting peak into the future, as the most promising up-and-coming filmmakers are spring-boarded into a Hollywood career. No filmmaker starts doing features, and 99.9% of all the directors and actors and DOPs and editors you idolize today, started out doings short movies.
Now even though this year's collection of shorts was very weak compared to previous Oscars, there was one exception. I'm not talking about the terrible Helium which was crowned best live action short, nor the cute Mr. Hublot which won the animated short category
My favorite of all the shorts in the 2014 Oscars, was without a doubt Feral. You can see the whole thing on vimeo, and even though it costs a dollar, I promise it's worth it.
The style is quite similar, and could almost be a deleted scene from what I consider to be one of the best animated features in the last 30 years, namely Fear(s) of the Dark.
