I’m a book kind of girl rather than film, it’s true, but I do like a good rummage on the darker side of the internet and YouTube for spooky bits and bobs (which I then go on to inflict on you in turn). Well, the other day, while I was mid-rummage, I came across the trailer for ‘Ghoster’ and I really enjoyed watching it. It’s by Toby Meakins (who has a channel on YouTube) and Thom Burgess. I’m not well versed when it comes to film shorts but I’ve watched the one below a few times now and I’m looking forward to finding out more about Ghoster – see what you think:
I then wondered if Toby Meakins had done anything else, so I had a proper up-to-the-elbows kind of delve into the internet and after a little poking about I found another film short by Toby called ‘Breathe’, which is about a ghost girl that can only be seen if you hold your breath… Alas, holding my breath has done nothing for me other than make my eyes go fuzzy but watching the film short below was much more entertaining:
And finally, there’s this one, LOT254 about a man who buys an old cinecamera at auction and gets a whole lot more than he bargained for:
Personally, I think film shorts like these are due a lot more recognition than they seem to get. You can find Toby’s channel on YouTube and if you have a look on Vimeo you can watch his other film shorts such as ‘Condition’, which I found very uplifting, and the thought provoking ‘Secrets of Angels’.
I look forward to seeing more film shorts by Mr Meakins.
