I've somehow secured a BAFTA-winning TV Director for my next short (yay!). I'm a newbie, and my shorts were written to be stand-alone films only, not 'teasers' for features, tv shows, etc. My man says this is folly, and that all shorts should be preludes to something bigger. What say you? Thanks :-)

Sorry for the delay on this. The short answer is, it depends. Yes, shorts can act as teasers; there's no reason they shouldn't ... But no reason they SHOULD, either! I think it depends on your gut instinct here re: the story and whether you can spin them out. If this guy thinks you can though, it's all power to your mill. Good luck!
