When we think about YouTube, many of us think the same thing. It's a great place to watch fails and cats doing insane stuff. It is also a great place to catch up on old music videos or commericials that were a big part of your youth. What people sometimes forget it, YouTube is the IT place now for finding new, young directorial talent. A sort of club of future film makers, all sharpening their craft at this great site. It is with that in mind that MakeUseOf compiled a list of some great short films on YouTube that you should check out now, before their creators become famous.
A couple of them are really powerful and show a keen eye for direction and story telling. Granted, they are not all gold label winners, but they show us that YouTube is home to a lot more than just guys falling off of bikes or people making scenes in public. It is also home to some brilliant young minds who will eventually help form the future foundation of cinema as we will come to know it.
