The NFS60 challenge invites you to make a short film of just one minute long.
A minute is enough time to tell a compelling story, and to showcase your storytelling techniques.
Consider opening right onto the conflict to hook your audience, and maybe tell a story about first love, meetings, or even life or death.
Use montages and quick cuts to speed up the story. Here are some examples of 60-second films so you can see how they tell their stories.
- 60 seconds is a magical-seeming length of time that you can use to tell a short story.
- The NFS0 challenge encourages you to tell a story that challenges your storytelling techniques.
- You should open on the conflict you want to resolve to hook your audience immediately.
“One of the best things you can do in a short film is to distill everything down into a theme that might only take a minuter to figure out. You can talk about first loves, meetings, and everything in between.”
