Originally spied on the outstanding blog SFSignal here, I cannot recommend the above short science fiction film enough! Called “Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis” and written by Damon Lindelof of LOST and Star Trek fame, it is about a young prodigy who uses his recently invented time machine to thwart the evil plans of post-WWII Nazis. It is irreverent, but it equally demonstrates what you can do with the short film format to tell a fun story.
