Happy New Year! I usually review recent videos, but here are some exceptional short films by Shelton Films, from a few years ago. These two films both clock in at under 7 minutes, and each pack a lot of great acting into a little span of time. Both feature young actress Carlie Nettles. We also include a great audition video from Carlie in this post.
But first, The News!
This week's Featured Video on our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts is a well made music video from talented teen musician Jillian Rae! Jillian wrote this original song and performs it here for you. She has a lovely voice and is skilled at guitar playing as well. Watch and enjoy!

Ben & Josh Shelton are award winning film makers from Los Angeles, CA. They write, direct and produce their own movies. This film on their SheltonFilms YouTube channel, entitled "Running", is about a teen girl who is sick and tired of her parents' arguing so she plans to run away. She has a male friend who cares about her and doesn't want her to go, but she has made up her mind and is just about to take off, when there is a twist in the plot. Enjoy the depth of emotional acting which is on display in this very short film, and then watch it again!
"Running" was uploaded to YouTube in August 2009 and was chosen as an "Official Selection" of the YouTube Screening Room. Shelton Films released "My Name Is Lisa" in November 2007. This is a short film about a 13 year old girl dealing with her mother's Alzheimer's Disease. It was the Winner of "Best YouTube Short Film of 2007." From the video description:
Alzheimer's is one of many serious and scary diseases still without a cure. Alzheimer's causes gradual memory loss. 250,000 children, age 8-18 are caregiving for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. To find out more and take action, visit: http://www.actionalz.org/
This touching and very emotional video has 3.6 million views to date. Watch it, think about it, but have a box of tissues handy. It really is moving.
Carlie Nettles has two YouTube channels. You can see random comedy clips on her JumpyDuck channel. She has 38 videos uploaded which have received just short of a quarter million views. Her other channel is called CarlieAudition which is what it says it is. Here is Carlie auditioning for the part of "Ivy" - a girl who ends up becoming text buddies with her friend's mom! It's pretty funny, enjoy!
