Make It Simple. But Significant.
Before WHIPLASH was an Oscar winner it was a short. When Chazelle sent out the script for the
feature about a jazz drummer everyone passed because he had little experience. The short premiered at Sundance and helped secure funding for the feature. It also provided Chazelle with something money can’t buy: a testing ground and experience.
