No, it is not necessary, but will ultimately enhance your understanding and experience In order of importance, story-wise, I would say the short films are ranked as follows: Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 2036: Nexus Dawn 2048: Nowhere to Run Incidentally, this is also my recommended order of watching, as it is chronological and will therefore make most ...

The Wall, by Takashi Ito, 1987. Screened at the SFIFF in 1989 as Part of Shorts in a Feature Length World. I've never heard of this film before I read your post, but I love short films and problem solving. Using the website for the San Francisco International Film Festival and searching the films of the past festivals with the word "Wall", I found this, ...

The Bellero Shield (Season One, Episode 20 of the original "The Outer Limits" series) Quote from tv.com: "Sure enough, he soon reveals that he has an impenetrable shield. Judith, who wants to get her father-in-law's empire, kills the alien and takes his device. She then claims Richard Jr. developed it and offers it to Richard Sr. if he will name ...

You may be looking for the short film Surprise from 1995, directed by Veit Helmer. It's about a man who sets up an elaborate and dangerous Rube Goldberg machine for his girlfriend/wife. At one point it does make her breakfast. Here it is:

I believe this is the short film Ark from 1970. From IMDb: Set in a near-future Earth where most species are extinct and humans must wear gas masks outdoors... one man (never named in the film) finds a pond with some small breath of life left in it, builds a greenhouse around it... The reviews also say they used to screen this film in classrooms. The ...

Sounds like the Oscar-nominated short Madame Tutli-Putli from 2007. Madame Tutli-Putli boards the Night Train, weighed down with all her earthly possessions and the ghosts of her past. She travels alone, facing both the kindness and menace of strangers. As day descends into dark, she finds herself caught up in a desperate metaphysical adventure. Adrift ...

It's a fan-made film from RainfallFilms. It's not an official property of DC comics. There is nothing much to it. There are so many similar shorts present on DC property like Nightwing etc. DC has rights for Wonder Woman and they don't have to retain it, its their own property.

Is it The Science of sleep (2006). The reason I believe it is this movie is that it is also part french. The guy goes to sleep and weird things happen. He sees the world in his own way and his dreams defy the normal laws of physics. There is definitely water in the movie since he uses water (with alarm clock) to wake himself up. Apart from that, there are ...

It was a tv series on Crackle.com called The Unknown, main actor Dominic Monaghan. I put the Amazon link here. Crackle put it all on once disk and turned it into a sort of movie, that Redbox rented for a while.

That is one one of the scenes in Allegro Non Troppo, (1976), a parody of Walt Disney's Fantasia. Like Fantasia, it features classical pieces set to color animation. The one with the cat is Sibelius's Valse triste, a cat wanders in the ruins of a large house. The cat remembers the life that used to fill the house when it was occupied. Eventually all ...

Yes, you can. But I am not a lawyer, and very powerful lawyers may think otherwise, and while you may win a lawsuit over it, it will be expensive. From an educational lawyer copyright blog https://library.osu.edu/blogs/copyright/ While the requisite level of creativity is low, copyright will not protect ideas (including narrative structure or general ...

Sounds similar to The Letter writer. But your description is so vague it may be something else. This was a short 12 minute film in 2012 LDS film festival. Hope you find what you are looking for

I'd be surprised if any of the old cartoon shorts didn't have posters. In the old days, animated shorts were shown alongside live-action ones and newsreels. It all added up to the movie-going experience. They were a part of pop culture then and they still are now, although in a different form. Remember, animation was time- and labour-intensive. So it was ...

I might be completely off tracks here, but from what I know, most of those classic (cartoon) shorts weren't the "main feature" shown in cinemas back then. People went there to see things such as the newsreel. Most short clips were more like filler content and/or shown before the actual performances (similar to how we've got ads today; in comparison... bad ...
