Do you collect short movies ?
« on: October 03, 2016, 11:12:46 AM »
There are sometimes short movies given as bonus with main movie. For them I have created a specific collection, and I profile those movies as I do with the main ones. With this, when  I look at an actor's filmography, I also get the shorts I own.

I generally have to create a front cover, and I use the front cover of main movie as back cover, so that I immediately know where to find the short.

I will only profile them if they are, let's say, at least 30 minutes long. I know short films can be much shorter than that, but I somehow seem to be cutting the line there.

For me, it is less the length than the interest. Some are so boring that I'm sure never to watch them again, and I do not profile them. But I have some of less than 15 minutes that I watched several times. The one in my picture, for example, is really excellent and is only 11 minutes.

Well, I had one that I watched repeatedly, as it was/is extremely funny. On the DVD for Robert Rodriguez's El Mariachi was an early short of his called "Bedhead", which was also only about 10 minutes. But that one I have not profiled.
