You Eat Other Animals? by Ed Wiles (2021) (UK) (5m)

Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter) is one of two aliens who are taking two happy-go-lucky men back to their home planet for a lifetime of adoration. The men know they are on to a good thing but the vibes turn sour when the men question the lack of meat in their spaceship meal. It seems the aliens find the idea of humans eating other animals hard to grasp and the men's efforts to justify their diet just makes things worse. With one of them oversharing, they dig themselves into an ever-deeper hole.

Sign Language

Sign Language by Oscar Sharp (2010) (UK) (5m)

Written by Stephen Fellows, Sign Language won both the short film competition and the Virgin Media Shorts competition in 2010 and it's easy to see why. It is a subtle and likeable romantic comedy narrated by a 'board guy' - the guys standing on London's Oxford Street holding up signs - who spends his life making announcements but is too shy to talk to the co-worker that he fancies.

Room 8

Room 8 by James W Griffiths (2013) (UK) (6m)

Room 8 by James W Griffiths won the 2014 BAFTA for Best Short Film. It's central idea seems to have been inspired by the Oscar-nominated animation Delivery by Till Nowak. However, it is still a beautifully made and mind-bending short film in its own right. Room 8 is the Russian prison cell into which an Englishman is dragged. His cellmate warns him not to open the box on the bed. However, curiosity gets the better of him and he must face the consequences.

Photograph of Jesus

Photograph of Jesus by Laurie Hill (2008) (UK) (7m)

Photograph Of Jesus is a hard film to categorise, which is perhaps why I like it so much. It is a funny, interesting, stop-motion, animation documentary about some of the weirder and more asinine requests for photographs at Getty Images (including the request for a photograph of Jesus). It is narrated by an archivist Matthew Butson and is the second short film by London-based animator Laurie Hill.
