World of Warcraft's "Leeroy Jenkins" meme, reimagined as a heist film

Even if you have only a passing familiarity with the massive multiplayer online game World of Warcraft, you're probably aware of "Leeroy Jenkins," a comedy sketch/meme/recreation of real events about an oblivious player who dooms his teammates charging into a battle (video here, watch this first if you've never seen it).

For the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival, director Finn O'Hara and advertising agency doug & serge recast Leeroy's ill-fated battle with dragons as a sleek, taut heist thriller about a bank robbery. Clever stuff.

I rather enjoyed this for what it was — a clever reimagining of source material.

What I don't get is why we only catch short films on the web. Why do we often only get to hear about short films but not see them run in theaters? Why not run them after the trailers, but before the main film?
