What is a short film review?
A short film review is often written by a movie critic and it's their opinion on a film that is less than sixty minutes long. Short film reviews still explore every aspect of a movie.
How do I write a short film review?
Writing a short film review needs to cover multiple aspects of the movie. Including the script, the characters, performances, cinematography, score & sound design, editing and so on.
How long should a film review be?
A film review should be as long as the house style. Some publications provide lengthier reviews than others. A general minimum word count would be 300.
How much money do film critics make?
Film critic salaries depend massively on their publication. Many film critics are freelancers, meaning they get paid per review and sometimes this is based on word count. Making money through film reviews can be challenging.
