15 second movies

Sometimes a 15 second movie can say more, tell more, than a hour long movie.

Let's begin.

What's watching?



'What's watching?', is the title of this short 15 second clip.

What today's movie makers don't understand is that you can say more in a 15 second clip, convey more, than most do in a 2 hour movie.

Is why if I were a instructor at a film school, I'd force students to tell me a whole complete story on film in less than 30 seconds.

If need more than that, than you have no story to tell.

Only those into cinema will understand that.

More clips to follow using brave sense of humor dual role performer.

Because I tend to lean more towards 'horror' or 'black comedy', most of the scenes I upload for exercise purposes only deal with humorous darker scenes.

And uses people not normally 'cast' for horror as the main themes, to 'widen the view' and include more...as in males, LGBTQ types, drags and whatever, whom are never cast in movies as being victims, unless it's some serious documentary type film.

But to me, humor is medicine, and any group that takes itself to seriously totally fails to pull others into their view point, humor is a bridge.

And if people can't laugh or explore and or understand the context of 'art' than you don't want such types in your life anyways, cause they'll be a drag and a major bore.

More clips to follow.

Title: When troubled



Again, if good, can convey more in 15 seconds than some movies can in 1 hour or more.

I so want to get into a film school, but can't afford it obviously, film schools aren't cheap, or heck, may just buy own equipment or rent own equipment and shoot my own scary movie and submit to film festival.

Creative people don't die, we just get frustrated that we can't be heard.

More to follow...add your own short 15 second film if so feel like it...just keep it clean of course.

I think everyone is tormented on the inside in some way shape or form, and art simply allows for some of that inner tension to be defused in a harmless way.

Closet monster 2



Same scene as above, but with a slightly different spin or twist.

Who has time to watch TV or movies anymore, it's way more fun making and directing your own.

You can say so much in just 15 seconds.

Free, for now



'Free for now'

Is what this 15 second video convey's.

In that in the past, America was place you could come to be 'free', free from traditional roles, free to re-invent self into any role you wanted, multiple roles, but is that 'freedom' now in jepordy?


Safety breeds creativity, the less safe any one feels within any particular community, the less their creative side will come out.
