Just some paperwork about short films I got handout at on a directing course. In order of importance of what a short film should have:

1. High concept premise
2. A reversal, twist or shock
3. Contained action /time or frame
4. New or fresh insight into human condition
5. Controversial / Relevant topic

Also, could Bob elaborate a bit more on the difference between a story in a short film and story in a short narrative? Thank you! Enjoying the lessons/interviews/Q&A very much.
