For this weekend’s challenge, we’d like you to utilize something you probably haven’t seen since summer camp…the flashlight. This challenge will focus on the lighting effects you can create with one, or many. Feel free to use whatever kind you have access to, whether that be the old-fashioned LED, a helmet-mounted one, or the app on your iPhone! Submissions should be one minute or under. Here’s an example of a video with flashlight lighting: [clip:82435074] And here’s another: [clip:78089073] #### The Rules: **+** Create a video that uses flashlight lighting!
