Here’s a little promo we shot at The Book Club in London to give you all a feel for what Bar Shorts it all about. 
We champion independent shorts from all over the world, the weirder, the smarter the sweeter the better!
Always in an informal, fun, filmic & boozy setting. 
What’s not to like?

(Thanks to Nich Kelleher for making the promo!)

All ye North West (UK) dwellers!

Bar Shorts goes Super Sonic with a whole host of incredible short films and animations at the Eagle Inn in Salford.

The night is free as always and promises a relaxed boozy atmosphere.

Register here so we know you’re coming and check out here for full list of filmmakers. 

See you there!

This Sunday! Happy Clocks Change Day!

Thanks Dog Judo for reminding us.

This is what happens when you sing your heart out in pubs.

It was written to celebrate the new Rocky musical that is opening on Broadway. We assumed it would be one of the songs in the production.

In Bristol on Monday (17th)? Like a bit of amour and animation?

Well why not go along to CineMe & Skwigly Magazine’s Love Lust & Libido screening.

Here is the final animation we created in collaboration with The Royal Institution telling the tale of Ancient Greek Mathematics in just two minutes.

We’re so pleased with it and huge thanks to our super talented Phoebe Halstead for heading up the project. The RI are an absolute pleasure to work with so hopefully there be plenty more of these to come!

Don’t mess with your mate’s sister. Ever.

The brilliant new Dog Judo episode is out now!

Here’s another snippet in progress of our project animating The Greek Legacy for Royal Institution. 
It’s a dodecahedron and here’s a wiki explanation if you can’t possibly wait for the full animated story!

Continuing on with our quest to animate the Royal Institution's Greek Legacy tale of mathematical proof. 
A heck of a story we’re told!  Tales of students walking the plank as punishment for "claiming to have proved that not all numbers can be represented as fractions", of Pythagorus thinking and understanding the world with philosophy and what mathematical proof has to do with "unlocking the secrets of the universe and the mysteries of quantum world".
Yikes!
Here’s a tiny Gif exert from our animation of a mathematician thinking and stroking his beard. He’s wise.

We’re working with The Royal Institution again on another super fine project. This time we’re exploring The Greek Legacy by making a short animation all about the history of mathematical proof! No mean feat I hear you say? Well listen to this…

“2500 years ago a group of revolutionary thinkers changed the way we think about maths. Through the idea of proof, the Ancient Greeks showed that maths isn’t just about performing calculations, but a way of understanding and testing the reality of the world around us”.

Here are a few of Phoebe’s sketches and keep your eyes peeled as we unravel the subject.

Happy Valentines Day darlings!

Brand new Dog Judo episode is here!

Rexley says he does’t need money. He just ‘is’ judo. We’re not quite sure how he manages it!
