The 5 Shorts Project was created in 2013 by Shameka S.L. Sawyer. Ms. Sawyer created this project to offer more opportunities for aspiring filmmakers and actors to gain industry credit and experience in Philadelphia and the tri-state area.
Participants are introduced to all the aspects of independent film-making from development to post-production.
To date, the 5 Shorts Project has produced and distributed 20 short films in 4 years via Comcast and Verizon. All of this was accomplished with no external funding and the help of phenomenal volunteers.
