Why Short Screenplays
The short film traces its roots to the very beginning of movie history, long before the concept of a feature films existed. In the silent era, many production companies focused entirely on shorts. Today, almost a century later, short films continue to strive as a new filmmaker's calling card in Hollywood.
For some, the short film is a proof of concept for a big budget feature film. The original PIXELS short film by Patrick Jean, for example, was purchased by Sony's Columbia Pictures and adapted into a comedy starring Adam Sandler.
For others, a short film may also demonstrate its filmmaker's talent. After 20th Century Fox bought the rights to RUIN, a high-octane action packed short featuring a post-apocalyptic chase battle, its director Wes Ball was hired to helm Fox's MAZE RUNNER.
In either case, short films serve as a quick, efficient medium to demonstrate a filmmaker's talent.
And it all begins with a great script.
