Probably because I'm looking at the 3+ list right now and because these lists are so connected that if a short appears on one, it is likely to appear on others too. Also don't forget we have 2000 TSPDT films now.joachimt wrote: ↑May 4th, 2020, 2:35 pmI don't think mathiasa was talking about the shorts on TSPDT or S&S. You can't use the same argument every time.
Of the 1817 official shorts on iCM, only 24 are on TSPDT. 11 of those 24 are also on our forum's favourite movies. Those 24 shorts are not there because of historical significance. The 1817 official shorts come from a lot of different lists, but there are a few lists that have a lot more shorts than other lists. The lists with a lot of shorts are not canon lists, but they indeed include shorts for historical significance in some cases. I really fail to see the connection with canon/TSPDT/S&S in this.
I've mostly seen technical experiments that are hopelessly outdated by modern standards, some documentaries with a POINT to make and lots of animation that is doing its very best to be as unanimated as possible. The few narrative shorts I've seen are mostly silents. I'm sure there's a vast reservoir on ICM containing modern genre and/or experimental shorts I haven't tapped into yet, as I've been complaining that I find it a difficult area to navigate, please do point me in the right direction.
