The Spider

My friend Renan and I made a 5-second film called “The Spider”. If you like it, we will make more. If you don’t, we might make more anyways.

    How about this for a project? Everyone submits a video of no longer than 5 seconds? I think the results would be, at worst, brief to judge!

    Also, humour is always encouraged by brevity.

      i thought about it, there is already a 5-second film festival but i wasn’t really into what was submitted to it – we really just made this for fun


    Another “Spider” video. Perhaps a little longer but really well done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zdj9vMH4BfQ.

    Make more, cheers!

    haha probably the best acting i have EVER seen in a 5-second film!

    if you feature in the next video a rubber chicken and a microwave you’re my new hero

  • Hollie

    Can you do a series with the spider getting bigger and bigger every time?

      hahaha that is a great idea!

    Make more. Definitely make more. I don’t know what the hell it is about, but it’s kinda funny. Even funnier when you think the thing is just getting started and it’s actually done already. By the way, it gets funnier as you replay it.

    I love it. Make more. Five seconds is for the people.

    Haha, that was awesome, it’s not about the length I suppose, if you can make people think, you dip their minds in a vat of curiosity and interest that is beyond time, it’s like a chocolate vat of beyond time.

      a chocolate vat of beyond time is exactly what we were going for!

  • Leticia

    I love this!!!

    follow the man in the spiders place, as if he was the spider on some crazy journey down the toilet

    I must say, this is perhaps the apex of human creativity. Brevity and/of/or/behind/turtles wit or something or the other.


    Lovin’ the song at the end. What is it?

  • Sakara

    I like it, make more please!

  • Callejero

    A friend of mine might say that the reason you made this is probably the same reason you like Kafka. That spider was struck by lighting as far as I’m concerned.

    This is fun and great quality.
