How to Make a Short Film

The original 2003 short film Saw, by the Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell. The short was lengthened into a full-length feature, which, despite the sometimes shocking violence, stayed fairly close to the feel of the original short. Unfortunately, the idea, so fresh in the short film and the first (and arguably second) full-length feature, has been bastardized into an incredibly violent multi-part series. Saw V is set to be released theatrically on October 24, 2008.
