BBCi gives aspiring filmmakers a minute to make a movie

MUMBAI: This is an initiative that seeks to uncork the imagination of budding Peter Jacksons.

BBCi Films has launched One-Minute Movies. This site gives visitors the chance to have a go at making their own short film, and showcase it on the web through

The site will offer everyone the chance to have a go at producing a short one-minute film that can be published on the web for the world to see. The site provides hints and tips on basic film-making, covering the entire production process, from how to create a storyboard, direct, shoot and light a scene, to editing the final film.

Users will be able to access free downloadable soundtrack music from the BBC archives to use in their one-minute movie. If they need to brush up on their camera skills, they can practice their accuracy with ace detective Kent Shaver in the online game Calling the shots.

BBCi films' senior content producer Martyn Glanville was quoted in an official release saying, "The films can be silent or sound, sophisticated or simple, so long as they are no more than one minute long. One minute might seem like a short length of time but keeping them to a minute ensures a user-friendly playback experience online and a realistic production length for the user.

As well as getting access to useful tips for making a One-Minute movie, visitors will also have the opportunity to see other films that have been submitted, read reviews and submit feedback. One-Minute Movies is positioning itself as an ideal resource for anyone who has a personal interest in film-making, or maybe interested in developing a career in film.
