Short Films, Animations etc - 20 minutes or less

I've always struggled to categories short films and and pieces of serious 'art' animation and I had originally intended to upload them somewhere online for anyone to download for free, but I never got around to this completetely (though there are a few 'freebies' at this site if you can find them - they also include audio comedy). Anyway, so I could keep track of all these shorts I decided to create this page which "may" link to free downloads in the future - I'll get the list sorted first.

In the meantime, do you want a copy of something? Contact me.  £4 (UK) or £6 (non-UK) per DVD - make your own compilation up to 2 hours.
Postage is included in the costs displyed.
The DVDs are Region-Free and playable on any TV / DVD player [or your PC / Laptop]. Can supply as AVI, ISO or DVD-R

  Home Road Movies : By Robert Bradbrook

  A combination of animated live action.

Firstly, 'Home Road Movies' is the title of this piece not a desription of what it is... a sweet reminiscence about a family of four children and their RAF-veteran dad, who knows the timetable of every bus in London, but realizes his large family needs a car. He buys a Peugeot station wagon - license plate GFP831E, and the family sets off for annual holidays exploring every corner of Europe - "adopting local customs but never forgetting who won the war." The narrator is one of the children who, as he ages, sees things he missed as a lad. As the years wear on, and the car sits in the driveway, dad keeps it ready for the next great summer holiday. Written by {}

Includes Swedish subtitles.

  My Wrongs 8245-8249 and 117

A satire of British news programmes. It parodies the 'hard-hitting' Gulf War-era style of journalism, as well as mocking sports journalism, weather reports, American news programmes, business reports, soap operas, 'vox pops', and many other targets.

Adapted from a monologue in his "Blue Jam" radio series, Chris Morris' first short film is a haunting black comedy about a man who no longer uses his name because he's decided he's ceased to deserve one, and a dog called Rothko who says he is the man's lawyer.

As reality bleeds into hallucination, Rothko decides to take the man for a walk...

  La Jetée : 29 minutes

The survivors of a destroyed, post-apocalyptic Paris in the aftermath of World War III live underground in the Palais de Chaillot galleries.

They research time travel, hoping to send test subjects to different time periods "to call past and future to the rescue of the present".

They have difficulty finding subjects who can mentally withstand the shock of time travel, but eventually settle upon a male prisoner whose vague but obsessive childhood memory of witnessing a woman (Hélène Chatelain) during a violent incident on the boarding platform ("The Jetty") at Orly Airport is the key to his journey back in time.
