See How Damien Chazelle’s ‘Whiplash’ Went From Short Film to Feature

Written by on September 21, 2016 


Before it won the top awards at Sundance Film Festival and picked up a trio of Oscars, Damien Chazelle‘s Whiplash began as a short film of the same name. Premiering at Sundance the year before the feature film would open it, the short picked up the jury prize in its U.S. Fiction category, and we previously featured it on the site, but today we have great comparison video to show break down the similarities.

Edited by Jacob T. Swinney, the video essay takes specific scenes from the short (starring Johnny Simmons) and then looks at how they came to be in the feature, in which Miles Teller takes the lead role. What’s most remarkable, aside from some more polished cinematography, is how Chazelle’s vision remained so consistent. This creativity looks to extend to his latest feature La La Land, which we loved at Venice, and we also have a batch of interviews for, following the Whiplash comparison and the full short.
