The 5th Short Film Hall of Fame

Tools    





Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough
I wasn't going to do it, but it doesn't look like anybody else was going to do it either. So, here we go.

The usual rules of the hall of fame apply, the only difference is that we are focusing on shorts instead of features. Anything less than 45 minutes is eligible except for previous winners.

Previous winners:

La Jetee (1962)
Harvie Krumpet (2003)
Tale of Tales (1979)
A Dog's Life (1918)
Duck Amuck (1953)
The Great Piggy Bank Robbery (1946)

Six people (Myself and five others) is the minimum number of participants. I won't put a cap on a maximum amount, mostly because I don't think we'll have to worry about that.

I'll bring forward more details about deadlines and all of that once we actually get people committed.

Expect the presentation to be pretty barebones compared to the usual hof presentation by all of those overachievers.

Send me your nomination.

This sounds like the kind of low-effort project I can commit to. Isn't there a thread somewhere that explains the rules? I can't find it.
Just nominate anything shorter than 45 minutes that isn't one of the films listed in the first post. Easy peasy.



Glad to see this happening and yeah first timers should join, as short films are, well....short so easy to participate!

I'll have to think about if I can come up with a good short film, I don't know any of the top of my head, I know some musty old ones



Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough
If not a lot of people join, are you planning on having double nominations like last time?
I'm leaning towards no, but I'm open minded if anybody feels strongly about it.

I've chosen this to be my first HOF precisely because it's so easily accomplished. Any changes that make it more of a challenge are likely to discourage me from joining.
(So now's your chance to get rid of me before it's too late!)
But yeah, I'll concede to the majority of course but that's my two cents.

Btw, when I get the next person’s nomination, I’ll reveal the six that we have so far and leave the door open for new folks to join until the end of next Sunday. I’ll also try to decide on the best possible deadline for something like this.

Trust me, this will be a very simple process. You just choose a film you want everybody else to watch, and you watch all of the films that get nominated. You rank them top to bottom, send me the list. When everybody votes, I tally 'em up. Whichever film gets the most points, that's the winner. These are all shorts, so I don't think the total runtime of all the films combined will even clock over three hours at the rate we are going.

So far:
Five nominations: 74 minutes combined runtime



Next time , be more specific.
I’m content with just one nomination per person.
I agree. I know more short films but don't wanna watch a lot.
