With a subscriber base of 1.4 million, Vimeo Staff Pick provides a platform for exceptional storytelling and creativity. 

YouTube Short of the Week: Mud Crab has been picked as YouTube’s Short of the Week. With an audience of millions, Short of the Week showcases over 2,000 short films from more than 50 countries across every genre.

“As Mud Crab reaches the end of its festival run, we’re exhilarated by this final accolade and the chance for new audiences to see the film. This recognition not only celebrates our film’s journey but also underscores the invaluable role institutions like AFTRS play in championing emerging voices in the industry and providing a launching pad for early career filmmakers.” – Adam Daniel, Co-producer Mud Crab.
