Summer Shorts: 14 Short Sci-Fi Films
Greetings, Earthlings! As another summer blockbuster season lands on us like a two-mile-wide starship on an immaculate Iowa cornfield, let’s prepare for first contact—by beaming down some of YouTube’s most interesting, far-out short movies.
Yes, it’s time to say hi to some sci-fi! Our inter-cinematic excursions are all under 30 minutes long, traveling at a light speed of 30 frames per second to take you to unknown realms, distant galaxies, and scary cubicles. As with other recent film fests (such as “13 Fright Bites” and “16 Sweets for Valentine’s Day”), we’ve brought you a wide selection: alien encounters, superhero antics, time-travel tribulations, magic, and much more. So all you Zarkin Froods out there, grab a towel, lose the jetpacks, and let your voyage begin. And YouTube, thanks for all the films!
We hope you enjoyed these flights of fancy, and if, while enroute, you caught the moviemaking bug, even better! (Just make sure that the bug is not actually a sentient parasite locked onto your SITI signal.)
