What is an independent film?
An independent film is a professionally made movie produced mostly or completely outside of the major film studio system.
Independent movies are sometimes different from major studios films by their content and style as they reflect more of their director’s artistic vision. They are often made with lower budgets and usually have a more limited release. Independent films are often screened at film festivals before distribution.
What is an animated movie?
An animation creates the illusion of motion and shape change by rapidly displaying a series of static images. The earliest cinema animation was composed of frame-by-frame, hand-drawn images. While animated films often appeal mostly to children, they can easily be enjoyed by all.
What is a web series?
A web series is a series of scripted videos, generally of several episodes (or webisodes), released online.
What is a short film?
A short film is any movie not long enough to be considered a feature film. As defined by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science, it has a “running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits."
Short films generally rely on festival screenings to reach an audience, where “short film/animation” categories are now often part of the program. New independent filmmakers usually start with short films because of their lower cost.
