Weekend Challenge: Seasons Past
It's the end of the hottest season here in the Northern Hemisphere and there's no better way to commemorate the sweet sun vibes than with videos of adventures. This challenge is a simple yet creativity-heavy one. Let your style ideas and editing techniques reign free here, because we really just want to see what you've been up to in the last few months!
Check out these Summer Feelings from filmmaker Sebastien Montaz-Rosset for a little film-spiration.
The rules here are easy: you just need to use footage that you've shot this summer (or whatever season you're in!), and compile it in any way you'd like. A cool, quick montage, maybe a slow-moving, mystical clip collection, or even a timelapse -- the options are endless!
We do absolutely encourage everyone to participate, not only those who just had a summer! Your video can be rainy, it can be snowy, it can be piping hot-- just show us what this past season has been like for you and those around you. We love all hemispheres around here!
Here are a couple more examples from a similar challenge last year. Matt Brass definitely got the idea with his winning video, American Summer.
And Calvin Keyes shook things up with his awesome pinwheel style in his runner-up video, Summer So Far.
Okay, are you ready? Please say yes!
+ Create a video showing us your latest season wherever you are.

Man oh MAN, these entries were excellent. Seriously, you guys, I absolutely loved the creative ways you all chose to show your season.
The winner of this week's challenge is Matthew M with his crisp, music-less beauty, Summertime.
And, because I'm extremely indecisive, we have two runners up this week:
Pizzaluga's super creative take, A Summer in Front of the Wardrobe, as well as andrew jay's adventure-ridden piece, When I was Gone.
