3 Shorts That Mastered Story & Music

While the runtime limits the potential for excessive building up of a character's history, the active initiative to get audiences to care for characters before they wind up in the inevitable conflict they're heading towards is absolutely crucial. And don't forget about the music. Never forget about the music.
3 Films. 3 Characters. 3 masterful Short films that stole our hearts. What these three films have in common, aside from the lack of recognizable faces, is a story that moves the audience to cheer for the protagonist. It's a common misunderstanding that we certainly bought into that short films don't allow enough runtime to actively provide a backstory for your lead character.
