EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the new Viewfinder List, the entertainment industry survey which polls studio executives, producers and creatives for their top 10 short films, commercials and/or music videos. Much like The Black List, the Viewfinder List recognizes short form video content and the up and coming helmers responsible for it. Several helmers on last year’s list got feature jobs; how will this year’s helmers fare? The list was created by Jeff Schroeder (Brillstein Entertainment Partners), Aaron Schmidt (Langley Park Pictures) and Patrick Chu (The Montecito Picture Company). Here is the website for the full list: http://www.viewfinderframes.com/category/viewfinder-list-2011/
