Every viewer and maker of a short film must be having an uncertainty racing in his/her mind -’ why make short films?’
Well the answer is clear and straightforward.
A larger film requires tremendous money, substantial casting, prodigious substances and location. An idea or concept has to be presented and flaunted in a lavish manner. Thus, it requires huge capital. The same conception can be projected through a short film on a small budget. A short requires a sprinkling of characters, accessible locations and a couple of paraphernalia. Few words, expressions and actions can entrancingly express a thousand thoughts, sentiments and passions. Therefore, if anyone wants to start as a film maker, starting with short films is the finest choice one can make. A person can play safe with a small budget rather than experiencing loss at an initial stage.
