What Makes A Great 1 Minute Film?

“The best 1 minute films resonate beyond 1 minute and effect the audience the same way any great film does. The challenge is to do it all in 60 seconds. You only have 1 minute to try and get the effect of a full length movie. For me that is remarkable!” – Thaamir Moerat MD of 1 Minute Film Festival.
