Best Short Film Nashville, TN | Filmmaking in Nashville TN
The best new SHORT FILM IN NASHVILLE may just be; NOBODY CARES, a recent filmmaking project undertaken by Nashville, TN Filmmaking Student, Dylan Ruff. The impact of this short film shines a light on the very important, albeit tragic story of teen suicide in America.
NOBODY CARES tells this powerful story in less than 5 minutes, which coincidentally is about the same amount of time that it would take a person who really cares to check up on someone who they think may not be doing well.
A short film is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defines a short film as “an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits”. In the United States, short films were generally termed short subjects from the 1920s into the 1970s when confined to two 35mm reels or less, and featurettes for a film of three or four reels. “Short” was an abbreviation for either term.
Youth suicide is when a young person, generally categorized as someone below age 21, deliberately ends their own life. Rates of attempted and completed youth suicide in Western societies and other countries are high. Youth suicide attempts are more common among girls, but adolescent males are the ones who usually carry out suicide. Suicide rates in youths have nearly tripled between the 1960s and 1980s. For example, in Australia suicide is second only to motor vehicle accidents as its leading cause of death for people aged 15–25, and according to the National Institute for Mental Health, suicide is the third leading cause of death among teens in the United States
