Short but sweet – The Porcelain Unicorn

This has been a week for films with the Oscars last night and the end of the Dublin Film Festival yesterday. There are lots of good movies out there but sometimes you come across a short piece which makes you realise that a little can be a lot.

I came across just this some time ago but think it’s definitely worth a post again. In 2010, the director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaker competition dubbed Tell It Your Way following its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project Parallel Lines.

The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted; still there were two strict rules: there had to be the exactly six-lines of dialogue as it was in the Parallel Lines films, plus the entries could be no longer than three minutes.

Here’s the prize-winning entry in the Tell It Your Way competition called The Porcelain Unicorn, an amazing achievement in three mins which you can watch here.
