The short film is a unique narrative art form that, while lending itself to experimentation, requires tremendous discipline in following traditional filmic considerations. This book takes the student and novice screenwriter through the storytelling process- from conception, to visualization, to dramatization, to characterization and dialogue- and teaches them how to create a dramatic narrative that is at once short (approximately half an hour in length) and complete. Exercises, new examples of short screenplays, and an examination of various genres round out the discussion. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: new screenplays, a chapter on rewriting your script, and a chapter on the future of short films

Both options can result in beautiful films for the audience. But also boring ones. Here you'll find some tips to help you make them properly.I've been teaching Screenwriting for 10 years. Every season I read tens of scripts that are soon converted into short films, so I see both my students' achievements and their failures. And my own. Here I talk about common mistakes that I see in class, on the internet and on the big screen. The book includes 7 INTERVIEWS with successful screenwriters of feature films - Zdenek Sverak (Oscar winner with Kolya); Alejandro Hernández (Goya winner and co-writer of Amenábar) - and short films - Maryna Vroda (Cannes Palm d ́Or winner), Borja Cobeaga (Oscar nominated) and Carlos Violadé, Roberto Pérez Toledo and Kaveh Mazaheri, authors of short films that have achieved worldwide success.You'll also find LINKS to 100 GREAT SHORT FILMS recommended by people from different countries and positions in the film world.Even if you don't have a budget, when beginning a project you have the same weapons as a blockbuster: two hands, a computer and your imagination. Nowadays you can make great small films with a few banknotes, it's all about the story and knowing what you can do.About the AuthorDiego Fandos is a Spanish filmmaker who works as Screenwriting instructor in Prague Film School. He has written and directed award winning short films (Under Pressure, Aurora), documentaries, commercials and the feature film Cosmos.

Making movies is the most exciting way to earn a living and it is not surprising that media and film studies remain the most popular courses at colleges across the western world. A short film provides an opportunity for elliptical, poetic, condensed story telling. Shorts can take risks rarely seen in features. It is the arena where a strong voice or individual vision is possible; an invitation for experimentation and originality. Making Short Films, 3rd edition is entirely revised and restructured, providing a much more complete and detailed guide to filmmaking, with more information on new technology, illustrations and ideas for best practice.
