If like us you reside within the Earth's Northern Hemisphere, you've probably been enjoying the summer season. Because that's what summer is for, right? And since you are enjoying it, hopefully you've been filming it, too. That's what this Weekend Project is all about: footage of friends sipping lemonade in hammocks, underwater shots from your snorkeling vacation, and SD cards full of fireworks. This week, our challenge to you is to create a short montage of your summer so far. You can use any previously taken footage from this summer, plus whatever warm-weather exploits you capture this weekend. For inspiration, check out this video by Samuel Ebat:
And whether you're using older stuff or taking your camera on a sunny adventure, keep these helpful Vimeo Video School lessons in mind:
+ Use footage from this summer and/or this weekend.
+ Your video must be no more than 1 minute long — make it snappy!
+ You must upload and post your video to the Weekend Project Group by Wednesday, July 11th at 11:59 PM (EST)
Please remember that only videos made specifically for this Weekend Project will be considered. All videos must be approved by the Vimeo Staff before appearing in the Group, so don't worry if your video doesn't show up at first; we'll get to it!
The winner of this Weekend Project will receive a free Vimeo Plus account for one year! If you're already a Plus member, you can gift the Plus account to whomever you choose, and we'll give you an extra 5GB of upload space for your account. The runner-up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space, Plus account or not.
So stay cool and put together some hot shots — we can't wait to see what you create!
We had an amazing turnout this weekend! It was a close call, but our winner this week is Matt Brass, with his video American Summer!
The runner-up is Calvin Keyes with Summer So Far.
