Found footage films are everywhere these days, but few short films use the concept as effectively as Timelike does. That’s because it puts its own spin on a familiar concept: one night, a young physics student receives a message from her future self. What follows quickly goes from unnerving to distressing. » 8/12/15 9:40am 8/12/15 9:40am

A murder mystery unravels as the camera zooms out and changes angles

Since we’re limited by our own perspective, every story can always be told differently. People see things differently. People remember different things. People tell stories differently.

What happens when your best friend catches you trying to kill yourself

There’s a lot of things to consider when you commit suicide. How you’ll do it, what you’ll write in the note, who you have to consider, and so on. It’s a logistical nightmare!

Short film: Having a one-minute time machine is hilariously useful

Here’s the problem with time travel, we always dream too big and think about going back in time to see dinosaurs (they’ll eat you) or gladiators (they’ll kill you) or other important moments in history (they’ll all be racist).
