The story line goes like this…
Once upon a time before Hollywood, Bollywood and all other man-made woods.
All films shot and viewed were short. The saga of shorts began in 1910 in the United States of America. And whether it’s animated or live action, almost all of them made to make people laugh. These films were called comedies; this happened much before the rise of renowned comedians.
From 1895, after the ‘Arrival of a Train’ of Lumière Brothers made audience flee in terror seeing the locomotive hurtled towards them, till the dawn of 20th century, the short ruled the roost.
Later, by the emergence of the long ones, they dwindled in numbers.
In 1955 resurgence happened. Charlie Chaplin emerged. Now in world film arena, Pixar and Disney make good animated shorts. It’s a great pathway to the aspiring film makers to prove their sheer mettle.
