Short film about out-of-date visual effects

In an affectionate tribute to the history of visual effects, filmmaker Michael Shanks (Link to YouTube) imagines a stop-motion skeleton monster named Phil who finds himself out of work in Hollywood. 

Phil is joined by an animatronic dinosaur, a rubber-suit creature, a 2D animation character, and a computer-generated liquid metal man.

Well, that was delightful, thanks for posting, James! I wonder if the skeleton was named Phil as a nod to Phil Tippett.
