Time Travel is a popular theme for Independent Short Films. And for feature films, of course.
Many people are fascinated by the concept of time travel, others could spend days discussing the various paradoxes. In fact, even fictional characters talk about them sometimes.
To be honest, sometimes I catch myself daydreaming about what I would do if I could travel through time. One of my favorite choices would be to record all the Top 40 songs from a given year and release them about 5-10 years earlier to see if they still would have become popular, to see if the original band still would have become famous, and to see how it would affect the rest of musical development across the industry in the following years. But that is very much beside the point.
This blog post has been a long time coming. I first saw many of these Independent Short Films a while back, but had to refind some of them, or search for an embeddable form, and in the meantime, I discovered several more.
Due to the numerous video clips, some of which are in multiple parts, this post will be quite long. Feel free to bookmark it and come back another time to catch the rest. Also, social bookmarking is always appreciated (as is subscribing, either by clicking the orange RSS symbol in your URL address bar, or by clicking on the words “Entries RSS” on the bottom of the column to the right)
Some of these Independent Short Films are funny, some are serious, some have controversial themes or dialogue. That is to say that you’ll probably enjoy at least one of them. So let’s have a look. And as the t-shirt says, if you are interested in time travel, meet me last Thursday.
The Small Multiple
Sooner or Later
And if you haven’t seen it yet, in a previous post you’ll find La Jetée. So which one was your favorite?
