****Alive in Joburg Dir: Neill Blomkamp (Elysium) Runtime: 7m Alive in Joburg is the original shortfilm that Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley shot before moving on to the bigger version, Distric 9. Personally (and I'm surely in the minority), I like Alive in Joburg more than D9. It's a very good example of how to take a big idea and squeeze it's essence into something short and powerful. https://vimeo.com/1431107
****Jenny Clone Dir: Maggie Carey (The To Do List) Runtime: 13m Before she had Aubrey Plaza to play with, Maggie Carey played with dolls in this messed up short about a spoiled brat who gets the worst-best birthday present ever: a clone of herself. Bill Hader and Carey add the voices. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8x_EgMzhGI
