In a new short from Rocket Jump, director Freddie Wong seems to have his hands full after hiring legendary martial arts actor Jean-Claude Van Damme to be in one of his short films.
Hopefully, they have a good insurance policy.
Created using footage from Grand Theft Auto V, this short silent film from amateur filmmaker Stuart Neaverson tells the story of a convenience store robbery that goes completely sideways.
Neaverson’s previous foray into the silent film world was a 7:00 minute long dark comedy about a man who attempts to commit suicide, titled “To Whoever Finds Me.”

The Big Lazy Robot VFX team decided to take on the age of smartphones, Facebook, and Tumblr and perfectly nails how all of us have pretty much become useless robots entirely dependent upon technology to keep us entertained.
Of crouse, BLR VFX says that you shouldn’t take the short film too seriously, because there’s an iDiot inside all of us.
Really, though, the very cute music and the adorable robots are great enough to keep you entertained for the next five minutes…you know, on your iPhone, Android, or tablet.
Some incredible new re-imaginings of Luigi and Mario from screenwriter Evan Daugherty, who is also doing the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and Polaris show the grittier side of what it’s like to be a hero. Luigi is an addict who must come to terms with his higher purpose, while Luigi must reconcile himself with being someone who has to fix every situation.
Wes Anderson teamed up with PRADA (yes, the handbag one) to create “CASTELLO CAVALCANTI”, a short film starring Anderson favorite Jason Schwartzman.
It really seems to have nothing to do with PRADA at all. Besides having Wes Anderson’s name attached to the film, that’s the only real benefit for the fashion company that’s obvious. The film itself is pretty cute and very Wes Anderson-y, so if that’s your bag, then you will most likely love it.
