May "you can look at shorts" be an idiom?
In any case, it has been found at the following context:
"With a first time feature director, it is always a little risky because you really don't know how he is going to behave on a set. You can look at shorts but that is really a different form, so you don't really know."
May it mean "You can do strictly your job, and no more expansions"
Thanks a lot.
