I am complitely agree with Peter and John, I think that the best is to
make one rally cool FX shot with a good breackdown that shows that you
really knows the techniques you have used in your effect.
Short story is great but I think that this is better for a personal
proyect rather than to get a job.
A good short film needs time to get the enough quality, when you need
to get a job normally you don't have this amount of time.
So it's better to have a little very good thing that a bug normal thing.
