Short films, and my favourites.

I love short films. Because they're so short, they have to get to their point more quickly. This can mean that making a short film can be harder than making your 'average film', but it can also be easier. For starters, a short film has to be short- as the name implies. This means that the feeling represented in the film has to be 'bottled up', and shown in a more compact form. It can be quite hard to achieve this. On the other hand, because a short film is so...well...short, it doesn't have to go on as long, and have very many boring scenes where the watcher(s) might lose interest.
