New subscribers to this Channel are ALWAYS welcome. Nothing's expected of you: you'll never be nagged or harassed or spammed in any way: naturally, there's not a penny to pay. You've nothing to lose. So, why not?
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.
