Background

 

Make us a 60 second short film with this year’s theme: FOCUS

 

We get it. We live in an age where nobody needs to buy film, footage is measured in memory cards and anyone with a DSLR can shoot longer and with better picture quality than most of history’s best filmmakers. Because of these advancements, filmmakers alike are able to roll longer—roll after roll, take after take.

It doesn’t need to cost much to make a movie anymore.

And while nobody cares about making filmmaking more affordable than Aputure, it’s the important to remember what makes a good story in the first place: a solid story, well told.

A longer film isn’t necessarily better. More than often, the better film is the one that is more concise and to the point.

So cut the excess, focus and show us your best storytelling in 60 seconds.
