Hey there, Congenial Constituents,
This weekend, it’s time for another Vimeo Classic: the 5x5! I love the 5x5’s format, which is a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound. With those constraints, conscientious decisions and creativity really shine.
The theme this time around is “Complexity,” and it’s up to you to find the best way to illustrate this within the constraints. Take time to notice in the intricacies of things you may overlook day-to-day.
Here are few oldies, but goodies -- one from Scott Foley:
and one from Nicolai Amter:
This project is great for practicing new techniques, and focusing in on something that you might not spend time on otherwise. Think about how you could use different aspects of moviemaking, like transitions, unique shots, and natural sound. There’s plenty of beauty and lots to tell in only 25 seconds!
+ Create a video made up of 5 five-second clips!
+ Use only natural sound.
+ Tag your video with “5x5” and 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, October 1st, 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!
