COMEDY SHORT FILMS - 1

Comedy is of course a rather subjective genre but I include what I think are some of the funniest short films that I have seen across these pages


The Duel At Blood Creek by Leo Burton (2010) (UK) (14m)

The fabulous comedy, The Duel At Blood Creek, was a winner in the 4th FILMSshort Competition. Blood Creek is the name of a popular site where men settle matters of honour with an old-fashioned duel. Unfortunately, it is proving rather too popular today as several would-be duellers arrive at the same time. The bickering and posturing builds up until the fighting begins. But who will survive in such a bloodthirsty age as this?

If The Cuckoo Don't Crow by Steve Kirby (2015) (UK) (2m)

Created by Steve Kirby, If The Cuckoo Don't Crow uses the audio from a real radio phone-in. Great Britain is not known for its hurricanes, but one of the worst struck overnight in 1987. What made it especially memorable is that the BBC's weatherman took the unusual step of assuring the nation that there would be no hurricane just hours beforehand. Michael Fish did this because a woman had apparently called in. The identity of the unknown woman remained a mystery until a man phoned his local radio station...

Fred by Leftchannel (2016) (USA) (1m) *

The short comedy Fred, a fantastic computer animation, is a finalist in the current competition. Fred is a short short that tells the story of two ingenious mice, a wedge of cheese and a feline called Fred. The highly-skilled mice come up with a cunning plan to get past the sleeping Fred but they unfortunately wake him. Fred mistakes their attempts to bypass him as an invitation to dance. And Fred has some moves!


Time Travel Lover by Bo Mirosseni (2014) (USA) (10m)

Time Travel Lover was a finalist in the 7th FILMSshort competition (you can see other finalists here). Time Travel Lover is a comedy written by, and starring, Elisha Yaffe. He plays one of a pair of lovers who are interrupted by himself, having come back from the future. He is there to tell his previous self not to continue with the relationship. However, this future self is not the only person from the future who wants to have a say on the matter...
