The recent announcement of SVA’s upcoming MPS Live Action Short Film Department (which will open its doors in the fall 2010 semester) is generating both educational and industry buzz. The Hollywood Reporter checked in with regarded director and Department Chair Bob Giraldi about the new one-year program. “Many established and successful directors, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese, first began by making short films—it served as a way for them to hone their craft and gain entrance into the industry,” Giraldi says in the article. “The short film is a vehicle for experimentation with new technologies and offers a freedom of ideas that cannot easily be realized in a longer format.”
