I’ve encountered no shortage of attempted short films while combing YouTube and Vimeo for finds to share with Geek Native. You develop an instinct for it over time, having a good idea whether or not a video is going to be worth it even before you click play.
And then there are pleasant surprises like Seth Worley’s Darker Colors.
There are touches of Stranger Things and Tales from the Loop here, but only a little. Young kids battle monsters with crayon, chalk and glitter. It’s a dangerous sport.
It took a year and a half to make this, but the special effects are incredible and the young actors outstanding.
There’s power in the girl’s drawings, but her older brother and his best friend are at hand to help out.
If you fancy a behind the scenes, then you can also watch The Making of Darker Colors.
