Shorts in Motion: The Art of Seduction is a Canadian anthology of 10 original, two-minute mobile shorts for video cell phones, by directors, artists and personalities, including: Ann Marie Fleming, Mark McKinney, Guy Maddin, Isabella Rossellini, Theodore Ushev and Denis Villeneuve. The series is presented by Bravo!FACT and co-produced by marblemedia and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).[1] It was one of the NFB's first ventures into mobile media.[2] Rossellini is the only non-Canadian director.



Shorts in Motion: The Art of Seduction integrates quizzes, advice columns and guides as well as downloads of all 10 Micro Movies which can be played back on mobile phones. For a further level of audience interaction, the ability to create and send e-cards via users' cell phones was also implemented.


The Art of Seduction was named Best Made for Mobile Video Service at the GSM Global Mobile Awards (Barcelona, 2007) and Best Original Content for Mobile at the Banff World Television Award (Banff, 2007).[3] It was also nominated for an International Interactive Emmy.
