Ever hear of a little site called AtomFilms? The site began in 1999 and is a way for online users to watch and share thousands of original short movies and web shows. You may have noticed there are a few ads for the site running around RopeofSilicon lately and those are to announce their brand new redesign and a bunch of new features they have to offer such as a syndicated video player that can be embedded on other sites such as YouTube and iFilm, a high-resolution video playback option and customizable channels and content alerts.
I took a chance and went on over to the site to see what all the fuss was about and there is a selection of comedy, mature content with things like stick figure porn, sci-fi, and so on and so on, but what I thought was the best of the bunch since we rarely get a look at them is a large selection of Oscar-nominated and winning shorts. You can check those out here. However, if you don’t want to go in green you can check out a cool animated short from the Oscar collection called “50% Grey,” which approaches the subject of what happens after you die, and it ain’t pretty. Check it out below, and click here to check out the full site or their featured video “Hellholes” right here.
