"We gathered our favorite cutting-edge content creators from across the internet and gave each of them a deceptively simple mission -- tell a short story in an innovative way." Showtime presents: Short Stories.

They're all available on YouTube:

Walks of Life, by Cyriak Harris: "The abridged story of life on earth, as told through the medium of walking fingers."

The Deep, by PES: "Metal objects of the past come to life in the depths of the sea"

Pretty, Dead by Jeff Scher: "Pretty Dead is an homage to the labyrinthical narratives of film noir."

Music Box, by Mixtape Club: "With "Music Box," a film that turns the traditional process of music video making on its head."

Tales of Mere Existence: A Few of my Highschool Teachers by Levni Yilmaz (Tales of Mere Existence Archive)

Dahlia, by Michael Langan: "'Dahlia' is the result of a controlled chaotic filmmaking approach created by artist Michael Langan."

Wisdom Teeth by Don Hertzfeldt: "Wisdom Teeth is an unnecessary new five minute cartoon that Don drew in between more important things." (Previously)

I saw that new Hertzfeldt thing over the weekend and wondered how it had arrived without much fanfare. Now I know I simply missed the fanfare. Hooray!

This is also cool because, while I am familiar with some of these people, I am not familiar with all.

Like Jeff Scher. Jeff Scher is pretty cool.

Didn't see any content there, though I did see a couple of interesting short films.
