Lavatory Lovestory (2007)

Lavatory Lovestory is a delightful short film by Konstantin Eduardovich Bronzit. The film is a minimalist short about a lonely middle-aged public toilet attendant who sits in her little booth day after day, collecting coins from the lavatory users while she reads the newspaper and yearns for another man in her life, someone to love and hold her, fantasizing about the romantic lives that other people enjoy.

The story follows her angst and sadness, and her transformation into a happy and joyful human being. The unusual setting of a public toilet turns out to be surprisingly fitting, and make it slightly longer than conventional short films.

Panspermia (1990)

Panspermia is the name for the theory that life exists and is distributed throughout the universe in the form of germs or spores. This piece places the viewer in the middle of a virtual world of an aggressively reproducing inter-galactic life form, and depicts a single life cycle of this unusual self propagating system.

Karl Sims used an original software to create and animate forests of 3D plant structures. Artificial evolution techniques were used to interactively select from random mutations of plant shapes until a variety of interesting structures emerged. The subject matter of the piece suggests the underlying biological methods that were used to efficiently create an unusual level of complexity. Dynamic simulations and particle systems were also employed to achieve motions that are calculated automatically.

Dumbland (2002)

Dumbland details the daily routines of Ryan, a violent and foul-mouthed three-toothed man with a bulbous head, angry expression, and perpetually open mouth. The man lives in a house along with his hyperkinetic and high-stressed wife and squeaky voiced alien-like child, both of whom are nameless as is the man in the shows.
In this episode, Randy develops an interest in a neighbor's shed and proceeds to become verbally abusive towards the neighbor, which, meanwhile, reveals that he is a one-armed duck-fucker.

Dumbland is a series of eight crudely animated shorts written and directed by David Lynch.The style of the series is intentionally crude both in terms of presentation and content, with limited animation. The filmmaker describes it as "a crude, stupid, violent, absurd series."
