Mandy is a psychedelic film with an ambling, meandering pace and a significant emphasis on its ethereal mood and atmosphere. Which is great when you're in the right mood to...

This is magnificent stuff. In choosing to remove all non-music soundtrack elements, Neglify has managed to nonetheless craft a short that's extremely unsettling and very effective. The narrative thread is...

Three short stories about the working life of police officers. Necessarily short, and not always offering closure, but interesting all the same. I enjoyed these, and applaud Neglify's decision to...

This was a fantastic edit - it's a great example of an edit that doesn't feel like an edit, just a story in its own right. Great work.
