Each participant gets 4 weeks to produce between 5 and xx seconds of film When the time is up, the clip gets uploaded on the blog and the next one in line takes over. It is up to each individual creator to pick the style and media they want to work in - and to decide how they think the story should evolve.
I thought this experiment would be interesting out of a series of reasons:
First of all; Will a wide range of storytellers, with only a few shots each and highly unique individual styles, be able to make piece of film that will engage its audience on an emotional level?
- Will it turn into an evolving story or simply turn out to be a series of beautiful shots with an abstract storyline?
- How will the different creators attack the project? Will "the artists within" please their egos and try to top the other creators in originality and composition, or will they put their egos aside and collaborate on what's best for the progression of the project? - But then again what is the best for the project?
There are no rights or wrongs - just creativity.
Good luck to us all...
