Metruk achieved for being the most popular short film among the all others within just 5 days. It is also available on MiShorts platform for buying & downloading.
Here is the screengrab which MiShorts team sent me this morning. (Right now it already hits 2517)
This result is a great motivation for me as I am in the writing process of my new short fiction film’s screenplay now.
Metruk (The Abandoned) had an invitation from MiShorts team so I’ve joined the platform and uploaded my film. Now you can watch & download Metruk by joining the MiShorts as using “join mishorts” button.
