Powerful Short Film Shows Us Less is More

Found this incredible short on No Film School and thought I’d share a though with you guys, but first take a look:

While attending Vincent Laforet’s Directing Motion Tour there was one thing Vincent said that I couldn’t forget, “The more subtle you are as a directer the better you’ll be.” Vincent made this statement while showing a war scene that was short and to the point and was better for it without all the extravagance of VFX.

In this short piece, the writers and director could have zoomed out to show a larger picture, but they decided to focus everything on the moments and emotions of a little girl and nothing else.

How can you be more subtle in your next film?
