Why 90 Seconds?… because it will challenge you to think creatively and to cut ruthlessly. More importantly, it will get you and your work noticed. We recently caught up with British filmmaker Ninian Doff of DepicT! 2013 fame – scooping both the Main DepicT! Award and The Shooting People RPS Audience Award with comedic gem Cool Unicorn Bruv – to gain some insight for those of you who are thinking of applying: "Constraint is a very useful tool for creativity. Forcing yourself to tell a story in 90 seconds makes you lose all extraneous or self indulgent elements. I think a big problem with short films is they are often not very short! I love the 90 second format."
“There’s something about the 90 second format – longer than a commercial, but shorter than [most] shorts – that seems to bring out a really high level of invention and experimentation.” DepicT! 2013 winner Mole Hill (The Fat Cat)
You have until Mon 7 July 2014 to enter your film – meaning there is plenty of time to read the rules and get some more inspiration by checking out our archive of 18 years of teeny, tiny shorts at http://www.depict.org
