Topic of the Week:
Sorry for the lateness but this topic has stumped me. So i will ask you "Why make short films?".
my first reaction was because we can but as the class discussion went alone i figured i was completely wrong. We make short films to tell a story, to promote our selfs, and because we have little budget.
I didn't realise how hard it can be to be a director for a short film. it's just as complicated as a feature but with more at stake. Most short films are made from the pockets of the directors and since our class i have a higher respect for people who justify making them as a job when everything hangs on that one short film.
