Short Film



What makes a good short film? What types of stories and characters can be captured in this short format?

In pairs, please view at least 5 Short Films and take notes using the format below. Find quality short films… like Oscar Nominated Shorts, and other award winning short films. View others you find on the web. Be selective. Join Vimeo to help you start a list of your favorites. If possible, find works that relate somehow to your own creative work, as inspiration for a technique or look you hope to achieve. Try to use films that are longer than one minute and shorter than 10 minutes (though the definition of a short film may vary).

Make notes on your favourite shorts, record your reflection once you have viewed 5 shorts. Your submission must note the below info for each film (some of this info can be found online and pasted into your reflection):
