BREVITY

Cinedicta do not have a standard length. Their length is as varied as that of aphorisms in literature, but, obviously, they should be very short. The most common air time for cinedictum is less than three minutes. In brief, the shorter the cinedictum, the longer the reflection on it.

Cinedicta are great, precisely because they are so short. Their strength lies in their weakness.

Here is what the best minds of our age said about brevity:

Shortness is the sister of talent. Anton Chekhov

Brevity is the soul of wit. William Shakespeare

Beauty is eternity in a flash. Albert Camus

Art is always a limitation. The sense of any picture is in its frame. Gilbert Kit Chesterson

From two words - choose a smaller one. Paul Valerie

Better say less, but well. Kozma Prutkov
