A happy lab where the animals feed themselves into blenders, chop bits off and generally go about their loony experiments. The only unhappy one seems to be the monkey in charge.
A film as densely layered and with as many twists & turns as the labyrinth streets of London. The story of the woman who first created the A-Z directory map of London.
United KingdomRuntime: 3:23
Man's best friend deserves the right send-off when it's his time to go chase sticks in the sky.

United KingdomRuntime: 0:00
|A Painful Glimpse Into My Writing Process
Somebody once said that writing was easy - one simply had to sit down and open up a vein. Or drive at crazy speed toward a cliff in a last ditch attempt to force the brain to come up with a good idea.
United StatesRuntime: 1:44
|A Vegetated Director
A superbly nutty film for everybody who ever thought their boss was no smarter than a pot plant. This guy actually is!
A kind of digital Pythonesque landscape made up - and populated - entirely by hundreds upon hundreds of hands.
A couple have a rubbish argument
United KingdomRuntime: 3:02
Love is blind, so the saying goes. And perhaps no love is blinder than a small boy who simply looks up to his Dad.
United KingdomRuntime: 4:30
A fantasising executioner dreams of taking his skill with the guillotine to an adoring mainstream - and interactive - audience.
Pure fun! A glorious swirling maelstrom of puzzle pieces.
|L'Homme a tete de poule
Axel Morales, Mathias Rodriguez, Sylvain Jorget
It's gotta be hard to play the sax with a chicken's head. And what will the audience make of it?
Where to begin??? A woman doctor mixes up a small boy and a sheep during the chaos of a car accident. Clandestine midnight surgery only makes things worse (a lot worse!) Then there's the wolf blanket.... that can't be good! And how do you squeeze a lamb into a little jumper? And how do you teach a sheep to fly a kite? Maybe it's just better to stick to the surface and make everybody wear fleeces and fake body suits. Or maybe not.
