Ok - here is a project for the real Vimeonatii amongst us:

combining two projects i am excited about:
Vimeo turns 2
and
a Simultaneous Capture

on February 16th 2007 - Vimeo.com as we know it turns 2 years old {just a toddler}
and we all want to record something special for that yeah?

well an idea i have been trying to make happen for years with photographers is the idea of a Simultaneous Capture!
what does that mean?
that at the EXACT SAME TIME AROUND THE WORLD - we all capture video.
and we know that this is what we were all doing at that precise moment {give or take a minute.

problems:
we all live in different time zones.
for some people it would mean an early start, and others it would mean staying up late.

i say:
who cares. we just do it.

here is the PLAN:

On Friday February the 16th 2007-
UTC or GMT time: 11:00:00 {11am}
{UTC is Coordinated Universal Time, GMT is Greenwich Mean Time}

we all record 2 minutes of footage that captures something of our life and who we are and our loved ones around us.
{2 minutes for 2 years}
i think we don't have to do/say/sing the "happy birthday" thing - do that in the birthday project- for this just treat it like a documentary style or whatever...

don't edit it, just upload it and tag it with:
vimeo2simcap

i have picked this time because it is when MOST of the planet is all on the same date.
it is very early in New York, and ridiculously early in LA
it is late here in australia, and midnight in New Zealand....
but it is all the same date and it will be all at the same exact time...

ok now as i know you are all asking/thinking-
what is 11am GMT time where i am???

5 am no problem for you my friend

Iain Brew

Sounds cool - is this in place of my project or in addition - I think this is a great implementation of it :D

I am so doing this :D :D :D

Amanda

5 am here too! Good thing I stay up all night a lot!

DJ Paine

DJ Paine Plus

the asterix * means that daylight savings is in effect.

and i know it is way early for a LOT of our american friends- especially the west coast rollers...
but it is pretty much the only time we can all do it at once on the same day!

we can do it an hour later maybe... that takes us australians to about 11pm and put's the new yorkers at 7am..

what do ya reckon?

DJ Paine

DJ Paine Plus

LCF!!! sorry mate!
want to combine or split or what?

Iain Brew

Iain Brew

haha DJP it's ok - simple mistake - but I really like this implementation of my 'simulataneous' idea - should be a blast to work with you - I never though about making it for Vimeo's birthday - good job :)

I reckon we should both edit out our ideas or maybe somehow combine editing - ie music production / video editing - the possibilities are endless I think.

I will try my best!

I'm a bit silly but what 12:00 noon means, 12:00 PM, AM ? noon is it afternoon ? I could search a bit on Internet but I prefer seeming stupid.

Edit : And I'm in, of course !

Iain Brew

Iain Brew

OK! JEDI-MASTER
1) This is totally off topic to this discussion about our project, unless you plan on filming a Rap video at 3AM in the morning in two minutes...
2) Caps implies you are shouting, thus being rude
3) By hijacking someones thread, you probably aren't going to get views but rather, shunned and ignored for rude behaviour
4) I did have a look at your clip, and you should at least put a warning on it for extremely foul language as children freely use this site too and I doubt parents would like them consuming your content.

Maybe this is ranty but it irritates me when people SPAM here...

I really want to participate...waking up at 6 is going to be tough, but I think I can do it.

This is like 3 in the morning or something for me. I'll try to be awake.

sorry!!!

it's not fair for the west coast americans!

i will actually be down in melbourne on that day, so maybe you'll see a colab between me and the melbourne vimenatti

Remyyy

Remyyy Plus

I've got a sort of proposition. I've talked about that after seeing the great collaboration organised by LCF ( vimeo.com/clip:132737 ).
At the beginning and at the end of our shot, we make a quick move, vertical or horizontal. And during the editing, the transition is a shot finished by a quick move to the left for example and the next one begins with a quick move from the right. I've sort of used this "technic" on my last clip, so if you don't understand what I'm saying. ( vimeo.com/clip:134871 )
Of course, that's only a proposition, maybe too restrictiv, too complicate or whatever.

Iain Brew

Iain Brew

I agree with Remyy - if people can manage this it would be great - make the editing/compositing much easier and it would result in a more realistic outcome.

If you are uncomfortable or if ths would not work for you don't worry, but if some people could it would make a cool effect :)

It'll be 11am for me. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Iain Brew

*gets excited feeling* this is going to be big - maybe i should throw caution to the wind and say revolutionary but - I have never heard of a project like this before on a video site - I hope we're the first :)

hereisjupru

this sounds like a GREAT idea!! 6am isn't too early.. you may get my pj's but hey that is me at 6am haha. I'm excited to see the end result!

DJ Paine

DJ Paine Plus

whoooo hooooo.

and i like the camera move idea. maybe we could ask people to limit their clips to about 60 seconds.

dalas verdugo

dalas verdugo Staff

I'd say maybe even shorter, since you're going to have to include the beginning and ending of the shot in order to do the edit.

10-20 seconds. Sounds short, but once they're all cut together it will be substantial.

Remyyy

Remyyy Plus

For the movement at the beginning and at the end, it's around 0.5 to 1 second. I've watched again the first made by LCF and almost every shots don't take more than 12 seconds and it's already long (I didn't say boring), so I think for something who isn't moving it's really a maximum.
I think 20 seconds is already too much. But that's not me who is planning so just a suggestion.

Abby

5am, i'm in :) it will prob be me snuggling with my doggy ;)

Alright, Im pumped......just got 9 days to waste now.

DJ Paine

ok maybe we can make TWO videos-
one for the birthday
and one for the joint edit...

Iain Brew

Iain Brew

Dalas: I agree - i only ended up using around 5/8 seconds of each clip to keep it moving and interesting

DJP: since it is a group project, I think group editing is great - everyone make their own version of it and upload (well, those who can be bothered too download/convert/cut haha :P)

Do we upload the clip, or do we record the clip at that time?

6am for me. Good thing that's the time I wake up to go to the gym.

I'm not sure what I'll film at 3am...

DJ Paine

bking- we all record a clip at the exact same time!

and record anything! just you, your life, your surroundings, something cool.
just a minute or two at the exact moment , then upload it.

and duplo, film ANYTHING! it will be cool.

Johann

I'm in! Knowing me, at noon I will probably have breakfast...

Sounds cool, it'll be 6:00am though and a video of me sleeping probably wouldn't be very interesting... unless...

Thommy Browne

6:00 am here as well. I'll keep my camera by my bed side and set my alarm.

I'm lucky it will be noon here... but knowing me I better set the alarm on my cell phone to remember it... ;P

bking - you film it at this time, and then upload when u can, also making a note of your location (maybe even include a Google KMZ location file too)

Sunrise in MA is going to be at 6:42AM on Friday the 16th. Check your location's sunrise time if shooting outside.

8 am in Buenos Aires... why i gave up Sydney for Buenos Aires is still a mystery! Count me in for the video though.

Tabitha.Cox

Sure why not, be 5 am here, usually the time my son has a bottle anyway.

djotaku

cool, I'm usually getting ready for the morning. By when does it need to be uploaded because that'll have to be later when I get home from work.

DJ Paine

DJ Paine Plus

can be uploaded anytime!

and just make sure there is a nice 10 second section that LCF can grab...

but film what you want... documentary style...
maybe film 2 clips- one short one and one longer....

All the people who live in places where it's really early could possibly contribute to The Bootylicious Bedhead Project vimeo.com/forums/topic:1012

Yes, duplo, you should wake up at 3am Friday morning. I just posted about this project on the blog, so hopefully we get a lot of participation!

O.K. just to be clear.
Its a quick camera movement at the beginning and end, and the clip goes for 20 seconds only?

same question as "f3ilter" 4 posts ago??? is there a last minute answer?

Remyyy

I think you can do it anyway. No more than 20 seconds (max) with quick camera movement at the beginning and at the end. In less than 10 hours !!!
