Short films purest form of filmmaking: Kashyap
By Hindustan Times
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap praises short films to the skies saying they are the best form of filmmaking because they are not made with any particular motive in mind. "For me, short films are the purest form of filmmaking because when you are making it, you are making it just because you
want to. You are not making it for it to be sold, you are not thinking of an audience, you are not thinking of anyone," the 39-year-old said here Sunday at the launch of the website Largeshortfilms.com.
"You are only making a film and hoping it will do something. You are not making it to please anyone," he added.
The website will have filmmakers present a series of short films that will be officially premiered. Ad filmmaker and TV producer Omar Haider is the man behind Largeshortfilms.com.
Kashyap, who is riding high on the success of Gangs of Wasseypur, believes that short films have a bigger impact.
"Short films for me are largely director-driven and they kind of converge to one point. Feature film can be driven by many factors - cinematography, music, talent, story-telling and actors, you get the opportunity of everything. But short films are somehow to the point... they make one, solitary, larger impact," he said.
