I can't imagine any job where these are work safe...

Douglas Burgdorff is a director who makes disturbing short films (all links not safe for work) about: the color red, partying, drugs, drugs and skateboarding, friendship, lollipops, and... um... Taylor Swift? Not for the faint of heart, nor the easily disgusted.

Everything on Vimeo is here. I tried to avoid linking the really gross ones.

I love films where illicit hedonism is always punished by a horrible death or injury of some sort. That's how you know it's serious cinema.

Someone who went to my high school did that Taylor Swift thing by combining a picture of Britney Spears with a cut-out from an Arby's ad.

I... don't think that film was about lollipops.

I think of these, Prick is my favorite one so far. A lot of these seem not fully fleshed out, and could have used more time in writing and editing, but when he does it right, it's pretty on pitch.

A couple of these squick me out, and I like them because and in spite of that.

The "prelude to yucky sex" subtitle to "Lollipops" appears to be....ironic?

Also: I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but Burgdorff "liked" this video (NSFW), which is...well, I hate to say this, but ever so much more interesting than any of these. I could probably base a novel on this video.

"Porch Casserole" started out so well with the uncomfortable triangle of social gender pressure and then ... argh that ending. It was like he threw his hands up and said, "Fuck it."

"Dirty Womb" was pretty hilarious though. I liked the contrast between one girl acting very porny and the other girl's reactions to it.

Going through his collection, he gets markedly better over a period of months, so I reckon he'll get better still. I look forward to that.

this stuff is pretty great. Shocking, but also thought provoking.

Not for the squeamish indeed. But, damn, did I love the music selections on these!

While watching the Taylor Swift one:

Just want to say... your imagination is rather limited if you can't imagine a job where this is SFW.
