Short starts

Short films for the dedicated actor or filmmaker

We create festival worthy short films for, and with, dedicated actors, filmmakers and even crew members. Five Fifty Five has often been asked to produce showreels for actors, however, we find such content is lacking a long-term vision. Under the direction of our client (you), we create a full 1-5 minute short film, where actors get a say in the role they play and the distribution of the film. Creating a full film provides artistic value, publicity, accreditation and piece that can stand on its own for at least 2 years in the festival circuit.

Short Starts and Five Fifty Five’s network got me into festivals and launched my career in a better way than I could have imagined!
