Cream of YouTube: Steve's favourite creative short films Play

There are so many fine videos that aren't on You Tube at all (think of Vimeo, for instance). But here are a few that are to hand, and that have inspired me or given me joy - not excerpts, not documentaries or cute kittens or hideous kiddies falling off their bikes, but creative videos in their own right.

The creative short film is just as much a specialism, a discipline and an art form as the short story. Just as Katherine Mansfield's "Bliss" is not "War and Peace" after a thousand Reader's Digest edits, so a short film is not "Gone with the Wind" on a bargain budget or on film stock that will run out after two minutes. Short film needs to be a way of making a beguiling or moving or trenchant point that could not be made so well, any other way.

Look, browse, have fun and learn - as I have done. I won't even try to single out favourites; but if you watch SEBASTIAN'S VOODOO, you'll see what I mean.
