WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE MAKING A SHORT FILM?

May 2021 | Georgie McGahey

My first job in film

Director Adam Wimpenny discusses his calling card short film RoaR. Adam went on to make his first feature Blackwood, which premiered at the Lonon Film Festival.

Working on short films is appealing to many MFJF members. Whether you are looking for an initial taste of working on a film set, or working with friends on a short film challenge, it's all valuable experience that adds to your knowledge and experience. Further up the career ladder you may consider funding a short which acts as a calling card to the film industry, which is the route that Director Adam Wimpenny took a few years ago.  

In this film, Adam discusses the reality of pulling together established actors and crew to make a short film that enabled him to make his first feature a few years later, which premiered at the London Film Festival and lead to his representation by agents William Morris Endeavor.
