Short form feature examples

I'm working on my second short form edit, the first five minutes is good so far, but I've lost some steam. I was wondering if people could post examples of sites that have the feature film hosted on their sites. I know that most people don't usually host the longer edit because of time constraints of vimeo and video hosting sites. I'm looking for the short form features around 20 minutes. Meg Simone has some great stuff on her podcast and she has some great feature films hosted on her site. Joe Simon has great examples that I found using the search button. Any more recommendations would be great! Thanks.

Re: Short form feature examples

i too was wondering about good examples in terms of short form features (main features). I was introduce to John Hoel and i've been following him since. John Hoel on Vimeo

I do get a little annoyed that he uses so much slider actions but it is clearly his style. what i do like about john is that he uses the toasts and vows to tell a story. storytelling is where it's about in these main features in my opinion. before i start any main feature i start with the vows, toasts, audio portions of the event and work around that. then create my timeline before i even start editing, i find that when you create a timeline it gets easy and gives you a path to work towards. it gives you a guide, i wouldn't say a set path since you can always change the feature as you progress and think of other ways to do it.
