Who wants shorts? Short films, that is...well, here's twelve interesting little ditties, some Academy Award winners...along with student film by some guy named George Lucas, entitled Electronic Labyrinth (the original title was Electronic Labyrinth THX 1138 4EB but was changed as to the shorter version as not to confuse it with a film he later released titled THX 1138). This is actually number 10 in a series called Short, which highlights the art of short films.

The DVD is broken out into six sections, listed below;

The first section is called Chaos, and features three films, all titled Chaos, which is also part of the title of the DVD itself (let the confusion begin)...anyway, the first short is a one-minute bit featuring skateboarders wiping out. I don't know why, but I seem to enjoy watching smug little punks rack themselves on crossbars. The second clip in this trio is a hand drawn animated bit that last all of 20 seconds (don't blink, you'll miss it). The third feature (5 minutes) is quite good, and shows what happens when men in animal suits are allowed to mingle within society unchecked...

The second section, titled Classic, features George Lucas' first short film titled Electronic Labyrinth (about 15 minutes in length), made in 1967, and tells the tale of a man trying to free himself of an oppressive society where the watchers are always watching...also included are three small pieces (entitled The Myth, The Truth, and The Legacy) that talk about George Lucas and his relationship to his former film school USC. There's also a little bit about his THX sound system, and productions notes (oh, by the way, in case your curious, the short appears to be presented as it was originally released, without any alterations or special effects added...

Why buy a magazine on dvd if you can get movies? It's simple. Short delivers a variety of new film makers with fresh ideas; with short films from around the world, short gives your dvd a new horizon difficult to find for the VHS format: the short stories. Remember those times you want to see a film but you are running out of time? Here is the solution. Animation, documentary, narrative, experimental; whatever your interest, this magazine delivers, in every single issue, a new world to be discovered. Billy's ballon, Mr. Resistor and The Last Supper, are a few of the examples of short films featured in prior issues, all of which were worth the price of the dvd itself all alone. Most of the films contained in the short collection won't sound familiar, but, who ever said that great films are allways popular? This collection of short films is a most for a real dvd fan!

This collection of shorts is highlighted, unsurprisingly, by the film that helped establish the reputation of George Lucas as one of filmmaking's leading visual directions: his short film Electronic Labyrinth, which won the National Student Film Festival and caught the attention of Francis Ford Coppola. Coppola took Lucas on as a protege and funded THX 1138, the feature film version of the short, directed by Lucas. The film remains an sci-fi and arthouse classic; its reputation grew with the subsequent fame of the director.
While THX has many visual similarities to some of the later works in Lucasia, Electronic Labyrinth serves as a montage of some of the directing techniques used by Lucas (and directors of other Lucasfilm productions, whom Lucas frequently directed). Check out the odd angles, the pans, the use of light. Electronic Labyrinth is incredibly abstract and yet utterly simplistic; while it is not nearly as enjoyable and engrossing as THX 1138, it is interesting to see the first glimpses of genius.

If you are even remotely interested in short filmmaking, then this series is a must-have! If your level of movie sophistication doesn't rise above titles like "American Pie," then skip the whole short film thing - the talent represented here is obviously wasted on you!
This collection includes "Electronic Labyrinth", George Lucas' notorious student film which led to THX 1138 (the rest, as they say, is history). There are some other excellent short films here, including "The Fly," an Oscar-winning animation from the fly's point of view; "The Bottomless Cup," a story about a poor soul trapped in a diner; "Deleriouspink," a xerox-animation; and "Kebabeluba," a hiliarous animation about a Turkish donor kebab merchant. Many others.
Some of the quasi-documentary films don't appeal to me, but I'm not a big fan of this type of filmmaking.
It's nice to know there is an outlet for short films, which tend to be riskier and more adventurous that Hollywood fare. Most short filmmakers have nothing to lose: they aren't tied to budgets or studios, they don't have egomaniacal executive producers breathing down their necks wondering how much money their film is going to make, and they are often the technical experimental ground for new talent and visions in filmmaking.
Once you get hooked on the short subject film, Hollywood product will seem rather silly.
Go for it.
