WRITING FOR FILMS

“Writing is both a pleasure and a struggle.”

3rd action is where stories are born. We believe in the screenplay. We recognize that crafting a superior screenplay is a magnificent feat in itself – a triumph against significant odds. Here in 3rd action, we have professional teams from the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East.

Short Films

A short film’s chronological length of this type of films is not limited, but also not long in which they do not compete with feature films. Motion pictures extend on both ends of the optical bar where there is no certain level or end in which it stops at. And this is what the Academy of Motion Picture Arts suggests, stating that: “An original motion picture film and its screening extends for 40 minutes or less, including all credits”.
