The best short film is the. Shortest.
If the very idea of the short film contains the sperm of the short duration then the difficulty that arises for the shortest possible film is at the same time ση a challenge! The concentration of the idea, the economy in space and situations, the small, simple and comprehensive dialogue and all the elements that in a short time will give the maximum of meaning and emotion, are data that characterize the short film. The more these features are acquired, the easier it is to form the desired μικρό "smaller" scenario.
The structure of the seminar concerns the writing of short scripts and the concentrated teaching for their directorial completion.
Objective 1: the creation of very small scenarios - ideas maximum 2΄ minutes that will serve as exercises with a camera.
Objective 2: The creation of a production file.
Objective 3: The inclusion of scenarios in financing programs. Whichever scripts qualify for submission to the ECC's "first step" program will be submitted by t-short as a production company.
