"Come! O, human child!
To the woods and waters wild,
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
then you can understand. "
W. B. Yeats

Seb and Ben McKinnon have crafted a truly magical and haunting experience with their work. The shorts are moody, atmospheric, strange, and wild. They manage to strike that John Bauer tuning fork within me. What's more, there's an entire catalogue of short films to be enjoyed here.
