Weekend Challenge: Dream Description III
Hey there, my sleepy soliloquists,
Dreams are neat and very personal, but that often makes them more interesting to you than anyone you're recalling the dream for. I think the raw material is great, but maybe there's another way to present it?
We're going to start the same way: go to sleep with your camera by your bedside, and right when you wake up, grab it and record yourself recounting your dream in as much detail as possible (but try to keep it under 2 minutes so you don't put US to sleep). Try get that moment right before you're fully awake — keep that camera within reach!
Then (this part is the twist, you guys!) create a video, using the audio from that clip! Mimic the imagery from your dream, recreate the plot with local street urchins, or create a shoebox diorama with pop-up elements and miniature marionettes; the way you go about it is up to you!
+ Document your dream first thing in the morning, then shoot a video using your dream description for the audio.
+ Keep your video under 2 minutes.
+ 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 ***Tuesday, January 21st, 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!
