short film
by George M. Groutas

Generally movie makers release a short episode of their upcoming movies for advertisement purpose. These short film or episodes are known as movie or film trailers. These movie trailers or previews are always advertised by the producers and distributors at cinema theatres and multiplexes during the start of the already running film or during interval.

In earlier times movie trailers were shown at the end of the film in cinema theatres and for that these short advertisements are known as movie trailers. But this trend did not last for long as audience almost left as the movies finished. So now these movie trailers are usually shown at the beginning of a movie. This way audience gets attracted by the movie before its release by watching its trailer.

Producers also advertise their upcoming movies on television as well as through internet. The best place to watch movie trailers online is filmtrailer.com.

Trailers ordinarily consist of a series of selected shots or environs from the flick to be released to the general public for viewing. Since the purpose is to attract the audience, experts choose most exciting, funny, or noteworthy parts of the flick but it is often in the abbreviated form because trailer may last from less than two and half minutes as required. Trailers tell the story of a movie in a highly condensed, maximally appealing fashion. Sometimes there are more than one versions of the trailer.

You will be surprised that there are companies that specialize in making movie trailers especially known as Peliculas in Spanish for the movie studios. Sometimes movie trailers are made especially for the promotion purpose and the scenes shot for the trailer may not be found in the original movie.

The Short Film Network Brings Award-Winning Short Films to Mainstream Audiences Around the World

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2006 -–

The Short Film Network (SFN), a cooperative organization dedicated to the international promotion and distribution of short films, announces its public launch to bring acclaimed short films to audiences around the world.

What is a short film? Short films are considered by many to be an avant-garde art form, typically ranging between 5 and 40 minutes in length. These films have typically served as a platform to showcase cutting edge talent, ideas and filmmaking techniques. From an experimental heyday in the 1960s and 1970s to a moribund period in the 1990s, short films are showing signs of a major revival in the art world.

“Short films are as popular as ever. We get over 4,000 shorts submissions each year and we screen less than 100,” said Mike Plante, Short Film Programmer at the Sundance Film Festival. “North America is behind Europe in terms of distributing shorts and supporting short filmmakers. Hopefully, new avenues will open up as making shorts becomes easier and cheaper.”

Enter the Short Film Network, a new distribution channel and community with one purpose: to expose general audiences to cutting edge short films while providing exposure for deserving filmmakers.

“The accessibility of talent and equipment has created a boom in short film production but most of these films are never seen beyond festivals and private screenings,” said John Montague, Founder of the SFN. “Very few of the great short films receive the exposure and praise that they deserve.”

The initial programs offered by the SFN include:

Exposure: Short Stories on Film – a monthly series of short film compilations that are sent on DVDs to subscribers via direct mail

The Short Film Academy – a community of interest for short film enthusiasts with a variety of members-only services and benefits

The Short Film Awards – an annual event that will provide significant praise and financial awards for short films and their filmmakers

More information, including a trailer with cuts from the films featured on the Exposure compilations, is available at www.ShortFilmNetwork.com.

Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their short films to SFN, both new and old, for consideration. Information regarding terms and guidelines for submissions is available on the SFN Web site.
