The Art of Being Short
Three minutes is what we’re giving our FiRST Film Fest would-be participants to impress us with their works.
Impossible? Not quite, according to young film-maker Nicole Midori Woodford, who has made a number of award-winning short films.
While she doesn’t enter film-making competitions often, Woodford has been successful at the few she has tried, including the 48 Hour Film Project, for which her film, The Arrival, took home an Audience Award.
‘With shorter films, you really need to be very precise about every single point of the script,’ she said. ‘You have a shorter time to tell a story and engage your audience.’
