Inspirational Short Films are a bit different from the usual short films that involve drama and character interactions. In short, most of them are just a short piece that is meant to give out motivational or inspirational support in one way or another.
As part of the first post about it from us, we have decided to list out 3 newest candidates that we feel deserved to be watched. Each of them has their own unique take on the visual as well as on the moral lesson. We will leave you to be the judge to see if they are worthy to be in Your spotlight.
And also to see if any of these will resonate with you. Without further ado, below are the curated list that we think deserved some spotlight!
DRAGON NEVER DIE : A Bruce Lee Tribute Short Film
I can safely say that not a lot of people doesn’t know who Bruce Lee is. The legendary Kung Fu Master that brought the famous style of fighting from the east to the west, and still he remains as the king of the action fighting kung fu cinema.
This short film is a sort of tribute film to him, but with an additional CGI that fits what the Kung Fu Master has to say about being flexible and adaptable – just like water. The use of the CGI to represent his teachings is quite exceptional and the authentic Hong Kong alley has been faithfully reproduced in its own style as well.
It is created by naughtypoy, a motion designer working in Singapore.
TODAY Short Film
Next we have Today, a short film about freedom. It is directed by Cody LaPlant and stars Kiran Vedula. With music by ‘Bytheway-May’ Chimera.
The whole short film is a visual movement delight that is pretty high quality. It uses some artistic perspectives to tell its own story. I must say I’m pretty surprised at the high production value.
With the clear balance of art, storytelling, narration and a bit of CGI, Today will make you think about your life decisions to be free. And for those that have always wandered, perhaps this will hit you in the right spot.
Blackbird Short Film
Blackbird is a short film that is the darkest among the three featured here. It is shot more like a proper short film with its own subtle drama. This candidate is inspirational in a different sense.
Is it about freedom? Is it about remembrance of the past? With the soft singing of the Blackbird song by The Beatles but with a different tone and mood, this short film will strike you with its excellent acting as well as the high production value.
It is directed by Sheila Avellino, with DoP by Brandon Habuda and features Sidney Rubino, with the story sets in a dystopian USA.
