Online Awesomeness ——

Ever wonder what it would be like to shoot a 3-minute short film everyday? The goal — perfect your abilities as a filmmaker. In 2010, Preston Kanak produced and posted a film a day. By the end of the year, he produced 365 films — ranging from nature films to corporate documentaries.  3 Minute Shorts (3MS+) is an online outlet for filmmakers that features work being produced from around the world — while also acting as an educational resource for filmmakers. While initially being an outlet for online videography services, 3 Minute Shorts now acts as an online community for visual artists. Mending both the desire for an online community as well a visual online portfolio, 3 Minute Shorts provides budding artists with the opportunity to showcase their work while simultaneously connecting with other like-minded artists from around the world. 3 Minute Shorts is also working to set-up opportunities for current post-secondary students through online workshops, tutorials, and festivals.

Video Virtuosity

And, since we brought him up, we thought we’d feature Into the Wild – one of Preston Kanak‘s  fantastic 3-minute films!
