Short Art Has A Different Vibe Than Other Projects I love long-form content: epic scope books, five-hour video essays, and sprawling television shows. I also love binging YouTube Shorts and Instagram Reels. So, today, we’ll talk about short media in a deliberately brief article. I’m talking really short media. Short stories like our own Friday…
