S: What we now know about Short Films
FC: class of | 2012
1: - All short films are less than a feature film, usually about 40 Mins long. - Narratives are very strong and to fit into the short amount of time they have to be to the point. - Continuity isn't much of a problem as of the short amount of time. | What we know about Short Films | - Music plays a large role especially when the Film does not contain any dialogue. - They do not always have to contain dialogue, but this does mean the actor would have to be very good. -Credits and Titles are not as important
2: - Short Films are ways for new and upcoming directors to show what they are capable of, this is the way that most directors have found their way into creating feature films. - It is also a way for new and upcoming actors to get themselves noticed as well. - Short Films are a good way to show artistic development and can be experimental and surreal. - It is also used as a Directors showcase and helps them to get funding for when they want to create a feature film.
3: - With Short Films, because of the time constraints less is more so the shorter the narrative the better. From all this information I think it will be easier to formulate a plan for our own Short Film, taking in what we know about creating a film and then being able to avoid some of the mistakes we maybe made last year.
