Preston KanakIt is very clear that the more you do something, the better you will get at it. The concept behind Preston Kanak's 3 Minute Shorts is based on exactly this principle.

Before embarking on producing and posting a short film everyday for a year in 2010, Preston Kanak came across a book by Malcolm Gladwell titled, "Outliers", which mentions many times throughout the book a concept known as the 10,000 HOUR RULE. After reading this book, Preston decided to attempt to produce and post a film everyday for one year.

By the end of the year, he produced 365 films — ranging from nature films to corporate documentaries.
