Long Live Short Films.

Little Theater in Bath.

The October Future Shorts programme of films featured the creative, the unique, the bizarre, the funny and the poignant.
We bring you 3 of our favourites.

The full list of films and more about Future Shorts can be found online.

Who's gonna save my soul?
This short film is for the song from the Gnarls Barkley album 'The Odd Couple". Gives a whole new meaning to a broken heart.

Never like the first time/Aldrig som första gången
Gotta love those Swedes! The contrasting stories about losing your virginity are brilliantly told and creatively amimated, the Swedish language gives the piece a comic twist in some cases yet a stark resonance in others.

To Build a Home

This short film's evocative music and landscapes hook you in seconds. The viewer is invited into the intimate world of a couple's struggle with terminal illness. There's no sentimentality here though, the piece is emotional but exudes a poignant celebration of how a life should be lived and in this case, defiantly ended...

Record Breaking TV.

Raising the Bar premiered on TNT in the US last month and attracted 7.7 million viewers, making it the most-watched series premiere on commercial cable. The show beat the previous record set by USA Network's The 4400 with 7.4 million and the 2005 debut of TNT's The Closer with 7 million.

Created by Steven Bochco, who developed such classics as Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue, it might just be the methadone that The Wire addicts have been looking for.

The question is, how long until it gets to the UK and the rest of the world?

On planet Neptunes.

No doubt they are one of the greatest production teams in contemporary music, but what is it like in their world? And just how do they come up with their beats?

The Eighth Planet DVD was a bonus disc with the 'The Neptunes Present: Clones' album.
