Sixty-second cinema

Welcome to the animated CliffsNotes of film.

The folks at 1A4 Studio have created some animated shorts (like, 60 seconds short) that feel just right for this 140-character tweet/ six-second Instagram/Vine age. The Speedrun series, by entertainment website Mondo, takes popular movies like The Matrix and The Big Lebowski and boils them down to their essence using sped-up stick-figures. Now, the next time someone says “I can’t believe you haven’t seen that,” you can reply “just give me a minute.”
