It’s not easy making an image from a real-life scene to look ‘miniature’, and what more a whole short film? Here comes the deal-breaker, called The Sandpit from Sam O’Hare.
The story’s very simple: A day in the life of New York City, in miniature. This short is inspired by films like Koyaanisqatsi (really, that’s not in spell check??), and time-lapse tilt shift photography.
Original Music: composed by Human (www.humanworldwide.com), co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong.

Quickpost: I seem to like the idea of this movie, Buried; it entirely takes place within a coffin. Do check out the trailer:
Long story told short, the summary: Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

Warning: Strong Language and Zombies!
I Love Sarah Jane by Spencer Susser, selection of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
My verdict: A different kind of Zombie Film.
Story: Jimbo is 13. All he can think about is one girl, Sarah Jane. And no matter what stands in his way – bullies, violence, chaos, zombies – nothing is going to stop him from finding a way into her world.
A nice short film by Rafael Cano “Rafiki”, Carlos del Olmo and Miguel A. Bellot.
Be careful, the HD is on!
