Why 5 Minutes (Or Less) is the Ideal Length for Short Films…

At Emerson College, I wanted to make grand short films. But my professor Rob Patton-Spruill forced us to make them 5 minutes or less (with credits). There was a method to his madness, so to speak, and since then I have learned the benefits of keeping your short films truly short. In this episode, I highlight the various reasons. After listening, kindly feel free to ask questions or offer opinions of your own, whether down in the comment section or by hitting me up on social media @PhilSvitek.
