Bumblebee in spider's web rescued by other bumblebee:
http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=Zs_3FHh3z4o

That's not what it looks like.

In the video, the first bee is struggling to escape from a spider’s web on a windowsill. Clearly, the bee has become trapped indoors and while bashing into the windowpane in trying to escape has become entangled in the spider’s web. The spider is nervously edging closer, but this is a big and energetic bee, prey that looks far too big for it.

Dramatically, a second bee that must also have got trapped in the house then comes crashing in, falls on its back and thrashes around a bit. As the second bee flails around on its back, it looks in one frame as if it stings the spider.

In fact, what one can see is the rear leg of the bee which happens to line up with the tip of the abdomen for a moment. It is too long and thick for a bee sting. The spider runs away, and the bees break free (as bumblebees usually do from spider’s webs).

So, sorry, this is not a noble, brave act, much as I might like it to be. This is just two clumsy bees trying to find their way home.

This is just a demo video that shows what a Freefly Systems el cheapo video stabilisation rig can do. It's pretty darn cool! 8)



http://www.freeflysy.../products/moviM5.php

Freefly MōVI M5 >> From $4,995.00

Other rigs can cost $30k, so it's quite a bargain as you can see from the wicked smooth video.

And another with the same rig.



Wow.

At almost 25 minutes, it's not very short, but it's not feature length either...

It's a Vice expose on cops entrapping kids in school on drug charges.

X is for XXL - A horror/gore short. If you like gore, you will probably like this.

This is a great satire/parody on FPTP (first past the post) voting:



I found it in a playlist and there are more shorts that make fun of FPTP.

Here's a subreddit that specialises in short films:

http://www.reddit.co...FullLengthShortFilms

This one is pretty nifty. If you like explorations in AI, you might like it. Sci-fi/horror.



The site & script for it is here:

This is is stunning! A scifi short for the ESA sponsored Rosetta Mission. It shows a far future, with a post-human apprentice planet builder and her mentor...

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's just an advertisement for a smart phone, but I have to admit, I did find it entertaining.

Samsung Galaxy 11 "Can football save the world?", short film in 4 parts or 4 too-long advertisements, you decide:

The Training:
