So admittedly this is a few years old but when a short is this good, it’s worth attention regardless of how old it is. Created by a team of digital artists who are collectively knowns as Junk Works, these guys are creating nothing even remotely resembling junk.
The crew has been making short films for a few years but it was their 2008 effort titled E.T.A. which really caught a lot of attention. The film played at BreakPoint ’08 in Bingen, Germany where it won a first place finish with a strong recommendation from the jury that their next project be a full length feature. Obviously, that’s a lot easier said than done but I can’t help but agree.
E.T.A. is only four minutes long but darn it if it’s not the most entertaining four minutes I’ve had this week. Unexpected and a whole lot of fun. I look forward to director Henrik Bjerregaard Clausen’s next project.
Film after the break!
