The Apocalypse

Written and Directed by Andrew Zuchero

Many filmmakers attempt to do too much with a low-budget, short film. Worse yet, some will often make their short too long. While short films in theory are far more easy to produce than feature films, they do present an artist with one major roadblock: Trying to cram a clever story into so little time isn’t an easy task. While many shorts use the same structure and story telling techniques as longer films, the film’s turning points come at a much quicker pace. Therefore, a five minute film, should have less than a minute worth of exposition. The most successful shorts are those that concentrate on a simple idea. In The Apocalypse, written and directed by Andrew Zuchero, an idea can be deadly, and the beauty of the film is how Zuchero spins a very simple idea into something far more twisted. »
