Weekend Challenge: 5 Second Film
Hey there, my chilly chums,
As we wrap up the year, I wanted to give you a peek at next weekend's Challenge so you can start the editing process. But first...
For this weekend's Challenge, we're bringing back the 5 second film! You should learn from the masters, but we also made an example the last time around:
Let's see how much story you can tell, and what kind of laugh you can get, in just 5 seconds! Here's another awesome micro film from one of our previous winners, Ben Figueiredo:
Now, let's think about..
The first Challenge of 2014 will be the traditional Memory Bank! We're not taking submissions for this one yet (just in case you want to get your New Years celebrations in the video), but I wanted to give you a little heads up. I know I've got piles of footage to go through. And by piles I mean nested folders, but you all know that is just as daunting!
Now again, for this weekend's Challenge:
+ Tell a story in 5 seconds (with allowances for a 2-second intro and a 1-second outro)
+ 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, January 1st, 2014*** 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! 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!
