Weekend Challenge: The You Show

Hey there, my congenial co-hosts,

This weekend, it's your job to entertain the masses. Come up with an idea for an episode of a yet-to-be-created show, and make some magic. This can be about anything! Though Veronica Osorio Videtta has a profile full of hilarity, a favorite of mine is Kate's Craft Corner:

You could take a page from Kate's book and teach us how to do something, or maybe you'd like to play Barbara Walters and interview people. Our very own Mark has a show called Don't Put That In Your Mouth, where he and a co-host taste all sorts of things. I present to you episode #010:

Think about the ways these shows are filmed and edited. They both make use of:
+ Many quick jump cuts (often for comedic timing)
+ Background music
+ Subject-centric composition

+ Create a show in a style similar to the examples, and make an episode!
+ If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, or something from the Vimeo Music Store! If you do choose to use a Music Store song, please throw a link in the description.
+ Add this at the end of your video's description: "Created for the Weekend Challenge: vimeo.com/groups/weekendchallenge"
+ Upload and post your video to the Weekend Challenge Group by ***Wednesday, December 11th, 2013*** at 11:59 PM (EST).

Only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.

+ The winner will receive a free Vimeo Plus account for one year, and one of our stunning new trophies! If you're already a Plus member, you'll get another year!
+ The runner-up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space.

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!

Is it my puter ? (I don't think so) Vimeo has been glitchy lately...non-loading vids...

I'm in...been thinking about a reality tv show for awhile, and this is the "fire under the arse" to get me going..Going to make it a channel. I love the fact I can create as many channels as I want, and I own the copyrights. ROCK ON Vimeo !

How can we prove the videos were specifically made for the challenge? Could it be that you are complementing us by counting on our integrity. Just incase you are not I got one of the characters in one of my entries to say the date.

I'm putting most of my eggs in the integrity basket, that's for sure! Although it's easy enough to see if someone is using an old video or adding something to the Group that just shouldn't be there.
