Short Film Friday aims to pass along short films that I find on the web. I have a massive appreciation for cinema, especially short films and documentaries. Want to play along? Share your short films with me on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #shortfilmfri.
Discovery Channel’s Shark Week begins this Sunday. Who’s excited?! Growing up in California allowed me to develop an immense respect for the ocean and marine life. Since moving to Chicago, I’ve found that a lot of people have a fear of sharks. It’s as if they think they will be eaten by a shark if they so much as look at the ocean.
In truth, shark attacks do not happen very often. From 2006-2010, there were 179 total shark attacks in the U.S. and only 3 of them were fatal. That number poses a very small risk for me, but if the idea of being bitten by a shark has you worried, today’s film should ease some of those fears.
Australian animator, Phil Watson has over 75 shark shorts on his YouTube Channel, but this is one of my favorites. It’s good for a little Friday chuckle. You can also find more examples of his work on his website.
Happy Shark Week!
Synopsis: Two sharks seem less than impressed with French culinary fare.
