NY Times Magazine Rolls Out 11 Star-Studded Short Films

/ Nov 26, 2013

The New York Times Magazine has paired with some of Hollywood’s top actors and writers to create a series of one-line short films for an art project by Oscar-winner Janusz Kaminski.

Directed by Kaminski, who is widely known as Steven Spielberg’s go-to cinematographer, the 11 shorts are part of the “Making a Scene” micro-film project. The films, each of which run no longer than two minutes, star the likes of Cate Blanchett, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Greta Gerwig, Michael B. Jordan, Robert Redford, and Oprah Winfrey, among others. Each of the shorts were also written by critically acclaimed writers and filmmakers, including Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (for Redford’s film); Andrew Bujalski (for Blanchett’s film); Nicole Holofcener (for Louis-Dreyfus’ film); Spike Jonze (for Jordan’s film); Sarah Polley (for Winfrey’s film); and the “Before Midnight” trio of Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke, and Julie Delpy (for Gerwig’s film).

“Making a Scene” is a part of The New York Times Magazine’s annual Hollywood/movies issue, which is known to roll out a collection of artsy shorts each fall. Last year, the magazine released “Wide Awake,” a series of musical shorts starring the most talked-about actresses of 2012, including Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rebel Wilson.

Watch Polley and Winfrey’s short film below (which is cold), and check out the rest at this interactive feature created by the magazine.

“Making a Scene” was produced by Kathy Ryan and Joanna Milter for The New York Times and executive produced by Gary Ward.
