A sheltered kid cons his way into a sick day. But left alone for the first time, he stumbles upon sinister family secrets. 
~ by Judd Myers (2015, 14min.)

A young man goes to the library to learn about sex. And he does. But not in any of the ways he imagined. 
~ by Harrison Atkins (2014, 7min.)

Nothing is exactly what it seems, whether the discovery of a dead girl’s body, her mother’s curiously mundane voice messages, the pregnancy of a disaffected woman, or a therapist’s uncomfortable revelations about her own sexuality. 
~ Jennifer Reeder (2010, 20min.)

That thing where you had such a great time last night that you totally forgot about the murders. Inspired by actual events.
~ by Spender Parsons (2015, 30min.)
