Hey there, you lovable lot,
It's time once again for a Vimeo Classic: the 5x5!
Just in case you haven't participated before, let's go through the basics. All you've got to do is create a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound, based on the Challenge theme. This week, the theme is "Your Great Outdoors," so get yourself out from under that roof and into some wilderness to show us what the great outdoors mean to you.
Check out these 5x5's from our previous winners, Julien and Liam:
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 5x5 about your idea of the great outdoors! Remember that only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered. + Use only natural sound — using an external mic is fine, but let whatever was happening while you were filming be heard!
+ 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, August 5th, 2014***** at 11:59 PM (EST). Just follow the screenshots below:
+ The winner will receive a Challenge badge on their video, and free Vimeo Plus account for one year! If you're already a Plus member, you'll get another year tacked on to the end of your current subscription. + The runner-up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space in their weekly quota!
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!
