The terrific crew over at Short of the Week has launched Short of the Week Presents™, a curated series of shorts premiering online. SotW helps with with online launch planning and by bringing media and industry connections to the table. It’s open for anyone to submit; here’s “A Family Portrait,” their first third curated launch (other than their own Thomas Beale Cipher), a deservedly award-winning rotoscoped film by Joseph Pierce:

With over 85k views in the first three days, the program is off to a great start. Imagine how many film festivals you’d have to play to get your short in front of that many viewers! Which is not to say that it’s an either/or relationship — you can do festivals and then submit to SotW, which is exactly what “A Family Portrait” did. Also see their case study of festival vs. online distribution.



We’re all here for the same reason: to better ourselves as writers, directors, cinematographers, producers, photographers... whatever our creative pursuit. Criticism is valuable as long as it is constructive, but personal attacks are grounds for deletion; you don't have to agree with us to learn something. We’re all here to help each other, so thank you for adding to the conversation!
