Hey party people!
When it comes to videos, bigger is not always better. For this weekend project, we've dusted off an old favorite from the archives, the 5 second video! The rules are thus: video must be 8 seconds in total (2 second intro, 5 second video, 1 second outro) and must contain footage shot this weekend. Other than that, your only limit is your imagination!
Our pals over at 5 Second Films have mastered the art of the mini movie, so peruse their hilarious portfolio if you're in need of a little inspiration. Our apprentices, Ian and Derek have also cooked up an example for you below!
Submissions are due Tuesday, March 15th at 11:59PM (EST). Submit your video to the Weekend Project Group or you won't be eligible for the contest. Please remember that only videos made specifically for this project will be considered. All submitted videos must be approved by the Vimeo Staff, so don't worry if your video does not show up at first.
The winner of this contest will get a free Plus account, or if you're already a Plus member, we're going to let you gift the Plus to whomever you choose (along with an extra 2.5 GBs of upload space)! The runner-up will receive an extra 1 GB of upload capacity whether Plus or not.
UPDATE: The results are in, folks! We had a tough time picking a winner, so we've decided to crown not one, but two talented Vimeans! Let's hear it for Adam Danger Smith for his video, Rockstar and Ben Figueiredo with Spark. Our runner up is Anton Luzhkovsky with As usual?
Thanks for playing, everyone. See you next time!
