The Days Before That (1min short film)

By Kubi

Last year I was asked to make a short for a film festival, and the interesting thing about this particular fest was the film could only be 1 minute long… I ended up only having 2 days to come up with the idea, make it, and send it off.  So I cut together a short using old family footage… with a bit of a dark twist.


Anyway, what intrigued me about this was trying to tell a compelling story within 1 minute - something that could linger in the viewer’s mind. I like that one minute can either feel very long or very short, depending on what the filmmaker chooses to do with it.


I thought this might be interesting to include on Hit Rec cause so many people on here create all sorts of miniature sized stories.


Oh and yeah, that’s me at the start running around with a pair of underpants on my head…
