Mini Movies Video Production

Mini movies are a relatively new form of filmmaking that has been gaining popularity in recent years. The mini-movie format is not a new concept, it has been around since the early 1900s. The first known use of the term “mini-movie” was in 1917 when it was used as a way to describe films that were shorter than the length of traditional movies. Mini movies are short films that are usually less than 10 minutes. These films are used in many different ways. Some to tell a compelling story and others, to promote or advertise a product or service or to serve as an introduction to a series.

Mini Movie Video Production Featuring Bankers

Mini Movies or Short Films are a great way to break up a long storyline into different episodes to tell these compelling stories. Singaporean directors and production houses use these opportunities to showcase their ability in storytelling. In this drama series of short films, the story follows a group of young bankers challenging the status quo to go beyond and above when it comes to solving unusual client challenges. The characters go through a series of ups and downs to discover themselves. 

Mini Movie Featuring Daily Lives

With the multitude of talented filmmakers in Singapore, mini movies are a way to show their skills and talent across local online platforms. Filmmakers always find the drive to create or to tell a story. Be it stories that originate from their home of residence or experiences that they have been through. This short film depicts a sense of home to local audiences when they watch it. It reminds them of the early morning of each day and a great sense of belonging. The film sends a resounding message home.

Mini Movies Inspired by Uncontrollable Events

COVID-19 hit the world by surprise. The pandemic blew up the globe which caused changes to our daily lives. Streets were filled with fewer people, working from home became a viable option for many commuting workers, social distancing created lesser gatherings with friends and families. Filmmakers were also forced with such rules and regulations, but saw an opportunity to tell stories of business and people who were affected by the pandemic. This film portrays a local food business adapting to the change in order to keep it alive. 

Mini Movie by Rising Filmmakers

The interest for filmmaking has been increasing among students, teenagers, and young adults. Especially due to the availability of affordable filmmaking tools such as DSLR cameras. The Singapore government is looking to invest in the next generation of filmmakers by providing them with opportunities to learn and grow in this field. Polytechnics and Universities encourages these young filmmakers to tell their story by giving them the opportunity to submit their work to local film festivals. This student short film depicts a story of a widower who gets an unexpected call from his son to do his bidding despite the recent passing of the mother.

Mini Movies As A Product Promotional Video

Mini Movies are also used as advertisements to showcase products. Known for their creative TV ads and weird commercials, Japan is a country of innovative creatives. Their scale of production is really high even just for an advertisement. This shows their quality of deliverance and standard. In this 1min mini movie ad, we dive into a visually stunning world filled with mind bending techniques to create such a jaw dropping piece.

Award Winning Animated Mini Movie

Not all mini movies are done by using a camera or real actors. Animation is also a great way to bring out a narrative story where it might be easier to deliver the message across. Animated films are able to control how characters look, location, lighting, techniques that might be difficult to achieve in actual production and pretty much everything. The universe lies in their imagination as everything can be drawn/created out. This animated mini movie is a story of the relationship between mother and daughter in a Chinese-American immigrant family.

Mini Movie on Mental Health Awareness

The need for mental health awareness has never been more prevalent than it is today. Mental health awareness campaigns are on the rise, and people are becoming more aware of what mental illnesses are. Through the medium of films and videos, the public are more informed. “REACH” is an award winning short film which touches on depression, anxiety and fear. We follow an average working office lady who faces such issues as she struggles to get her work done. The use of handheld camera shakiness gives the audiences the feeling of pressure in the character’s state of mind. 

Documentary Mini Movies


Short film documentaries are the new way to tell a story in a short amount of time.These films are able to capture moments in a way that is more personal and intimate than traditional films, which can be seen as being less sleepy. It also allows for more creativity and freedom when telling the story. “The Sentence of Michael Thompson” tells a powerful story of the longest serving non – violent offender in Michigan history. The film addresses the flaws in the criminal justice system and undying faith of the Thompson family in the face of injustice. 


Every Mini Movie and Short Film has a message behind. Knowing what we want to tell is the key to delivering our message. We can learn from short films how to convey the message in an effective way without using too many words or images. It is also worth noting that they are not just used as promotional materials but also as standalone pieces of art. A common misconception of making short films is trying to tell more than the runtime. In short films, we do not try to make it complex for audiences to digest. Instead the trend for narrative short films is to keep such information subtle. Less is more in this scenario. Too much information or explanations in short films confuses the message and meaning behind these works of art. It is also notably important that the crew size for these films ranges from 8-10 people. As short films do not have the luxury of time and are mostly done shooting within 1-4 days. A crew size of 8-10 would be the best to ensure each department runs smoothly at every stage of production. Mini Movies/Short Films are a great way to showcase creativity, compelling stories, products, etc in a short period of time.
