For Fandango’s Flashback Friday I went into my vaults and found this super fun creative writing exercise- so of course when I did it I manged to find a way to drag it through a pile of graveyard yuck, but that’s what I do.
I’ve been watching some spooky clips from a series called @shortestblockbusters. Shortestblockbuster’s home is on tictok but I still haven’t even figured out snapchat, so I’ve been watching these on youtube.
My techy shortcomings aside, I have to say I’ve enjoyed these clips, some are a little more polished then the others but that really doesn’t matter because in this challenge you have 15 seconds to make someone care about your story and all the bells and whistles in the Universe won’t help you if you don’t hit that chord with your audience.
I think what made these three so enjoyable for me is that the filmmakers had a focus and they stayed there so after the clip was over you had one single image in your head. Brilliant.
In the first clip, there is a lot going on but the ending made me laugh and want to watch more of these clips so I did.
Halloween is days away and these treats are tasty enough until you can score on THE BIG DAY, so enjoy.
