Hey there, coolheaded creators,
Because the Long Portraits were so beautiful, we're going to double up on this simple and still video vibe. This weekend, try another classic: the One Minute video. It's uncomplicated -- no camera movement, no editing, only existing sound, one minute long. Check out Pierrick's winning video from our last One Minute Challenge:
That's it! Use "Balance" as a thematic starting point for this simple project. Like the long portraits, this video is a fantastic opportunity to think about framing and composition, lighting, and sound. You won't waste much time shooting, so try a few different setups before you submit your final minute!
+ Your video must be exactly one minute long.
+ You must only use existing audio (camera or field mic).
+ Hands off the camera, and no edits other than to choose your minute! If your camera is attached to a moving object, so be it, but don't zoom or pan yourself.
+ Anything goes for your video's title, but tag your video with "1minute" 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, March 18th, 2014***** at 11:59 PM (EST).
Only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.
+ The winner will receive a badge on their video, and 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!
