SHARE/CUT: A Vimeo Project

Stéphane Arbour Created by Stéphane Arbour Plus

You know how they always say a film gets rewritten in post?
This Vimeo project is the ultimate editing challenge!

Welcome to SHARE/CUT! The purpose of this project is to explore how many different films can be made out of the same original footage.

HOW IT WORKS

1. SHOOT
A member of this group starts a topic in the forum tab to let the other members know he will be a “star shooter”. That means that he or she commits to shooting 5 to 10 minutes of raw footage to share with the group.

Welcome to SHARE/CUT! The purpose of this project is to explore how many different films can be made out of the same original footage.

HOW IT WORKS

1. SHOOT
A member of this group starts a topic in the forum tab to let the other members know he will be a “star shooter”. That means that he or she commits to shooting 5 to 10 minutes of raw footage to share with the group. Be as creative as you like but keep in mind that in order for the challenge to be fun, (and just like in real life) editors need options!

2. SHARE
The star shooter must then post the raw / unedited footage and clearly identify it plus tag it to this group. Once this footage is posted, all the other members are free to download and start creating. Please note that some star shooters won’t be Vimeo Plus users and their ORIGINAL files will only be available to download for a week (MP4 after that).

3. CUT
Now the fun begins! Make any film you want from the raw footage. You have complete creative freedom BUT please respect Vimeo’s guidelines: vimeo.com/guidelines. So no porn! Also, if you include dialogue in any other language, please try to subtitle in English.

You are allowed to use ONLY ONE shot of your own in your finished film and all other images must come from the star shooter. Sound and any titles are entirely at your discretion. For help finding royalty-free music and sound effects, check out this forum: vimeo.com/forums/topic:15630 (by vimeo.com/karenabad).

The maximum length of your finished product should ideally be no longer than about two minutes. When you are ready to post your final film, please credit the star shooter / actors / musician as part of your video’s description and tag it to this group.

Voilà! Are you up for the challenge?
