What the Heck Is 5 Second Films?

Our very special guest Michael Rousselet is a member of this ragtag group of filmmakers who have spent YEARS making THOUSANDS of tiny, mini, micro, short comedy films that they've called 5 Second Films.

In this video, Rousselet talks about how he meets Brian Firenzi, the OG 5SF filmmaker. And he talks about how they managed to form a group who committed to creating and releasing one 5 second film each day.

What Happened Next?

In another video, Rousselet talks about how one of their videos went viral. As their audience grew, so did the team. They kept chugging away, and garnered a lot of attention. Eventually, they banded together and called upon their fanbase to help them fund a feature film called Dude Bro Party Massacre 3.

The Power of Consistency

I've heard it over and over that consistency is the key to success in the world of online video. If you make a video and release it every Wednesday, it will be infinitely easier to grow your following and gain active and engaged fans. This is because they know exactly what to expect and when to expect it, and can look forward to receiving that alert that tells them it's time to get their fix with your next video.

5SF takes this idea to Mount Everest by releasing one film every day, 5 days a week. This is a huge commitment and Michael talks about what this actually meant for them, in the video.

Give it a watch!
