Hello out there, selfie society,
If you don’t already know, the 5x5 format is very simple: a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound. With those constraints, conscientious decisions and creativity really shine.
Tamara’s winning entry from the “Complexity” Challenge.
For this week’s 5x5, our theme is “Me Right Now” — with only 25 seconds, how will you decide to share the vibes of what’s going on in your life? Maybe you’ll share 5-second snippets of your day, like a micro-documentary, or you could go for something a little avant-garde, full of color and texture and subtlety. Anything goes, as long as it’s made of 5 clips, 5 seconds each, and has natural sound.
Karl’s winning entry from the “Simplicity” Challenge.
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!
