You’re dropped right into the middle of the action in “Mad Circus,” a short starring an old train conductor whose vessel is having a few….problems. Where is he? Who is he? Why are trains flying?

Check Out This Animated Short: Welcome To Paradise

by Peter Paltridgeon December 23, 2016
It’s nice to be able to carry an endless supply of media in a pocket-sized device, isn’t it? People had it harsh in the old days….or rather, in this alien otherworld.

Check Out This Animated Short: “Glitch”

by Peter Paltridgeon December 14, 2016
Here’s a short that introduces you to a completely different world and only lets you stay in it for four minutes, but leaves an impression on you for hours afterward.

Solid Snake, Psycho Mantis Face Off In Car Ad

by Peter Paltridgeon April 8, 2016
Remember that strange pair of commercials two months ago where Dragon Ball Z characters were redubbed to sell Ford cars? Well, the company’s at it again, and this time, they’ve appropriated footage from the Playstation classic Metal Gear Solid. What kind of world has this become where a large company like Ford even knows what […]
