I’m off to Seattle right now. My short films have always had a good reception there at both the Seattle International Film Festival and Bumbershoot. Hope the locals like the feature as well.
I’m a big believer in the medium of short films. I’ve always thought they should be as relevant to filmmaking as short stories are to the literary world. Now, with the birth of video iPods, cell phone broadcasts, and video-on-demand, I think they are finally going to find a place in the marketplace.
Think about it. How many emails do you get a month with an attached humorous film clip that you need to forward to all your friends…? The Shining Trailer, Bear Falling out of a Tree, the Car Commercial with the Zombie. They’re all short films.
Anyhow, you can view my most recent short films on Atomfilms. They’ve all had successful runs and might give you an idea of what kind of stuff gets programmed at film festivals. Enjoy.
