Why Short Films

First short film ever made Short films trace back to the beginning of movie history, before the concept of 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 instance, was purchased by Sony's Columbia Pictures and adapted into a comedy starring Adam Sandler.

MAZE RUNNER directed by RUIN's Wes Ball 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 your filmmaking talent.
