This week’s short, Nachtmahr: Geistergang, (Nightmare: Ghost Trail) was written by another fan of ours, Kacper Radecki. This is visually and aurally one of the stranger shorts I’ve come across. Each scene is quite unique. There’s a creature (which took an entire week to make the costume for) dancing in the forest, a series of ruins, a pipe scene, and a bug trying to escape a jar. All of which, along with the whispers and screams in the background, make it true to it’s title; a nightmare.
Kacper is a self-taught photographer and director who plans to study film in the United States in 2010. Our best wishes go out to him in furthering his passion for film.

Firstly, I’d like to thank Ayla (of Twisted Celluloid) for the idea of this week’s short, “Betty Boop in Snow-White”. The change over the past seventy-five years has been a big one, and it is very evident in this cartoon. In this short you will find some very out of the ordinary dancing and singing (featuring Cab Calloway), a brief mention of alcohol, and no morals to end on. Enjoy!
Our second Saturday Short installment is from a fan of our site, Sean McHenry, director and editor of Deep Blue Edit. Unlike my last post, “One Pill” is much more what you’d expect a short film to be; quiet, yet profound. I believe Sean’s caption says it best:
“If One Pill could repair a broken memory…
No matter how tragic and painful…
Would you take it?”
Much more from Sean is available at his site Deep Blue Edit (look for the blue navigation box to the left.) One brief tour was all it took, and I was completely ensnared. If you like what you see, be sure to message him. He’ll be glad to know his work is well appreciated.
