It's time for another sweet, sweet Weekend Project. Here's the challenge-
Have someone you know and trust take a camera of yours and instruct them to shoot what they find to be interesting during the course of an afternoon or so. If they're not familiar with the camera model make sure to instruct them in the basic controls such as on/off, record, zoom, etc. Let them shoot whatever footage they find appealing, try to allow only their perspective to influence the shooting subject matter and technique. Once they're done, your work begins. Take the footage they shoot and try to assemble something worth watching that is no more than 2 or 3 mins in total length. The most interesting video that demonstrates keen editorial choices and technique wins!
Make sure to submit your video to the Weekend Project Group. Please note that the Community Staff will approve videos for inclusion into the Group and will also be selecting the winning videos.
The winner gets a Plus account (for Basic members) or 25,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). The runner-up gets an extra 1 GB of upload capacity (for Basic users) or 10,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). Make sure you only submit videos made specifically for this weekend project!
Submissions are due on Tuesday (3/30) at 11:59PM (EST).
Have fun with this and make sure to share with your camera buddy the final edited video.
P.S. Big props to Taylor Gillespie, our new Community Apprentice for inspiring this week's project ;)
Update: This week's winner is Lea Amet with her piece Adolescence, a dreamy peak into moments of youth. The runner up is Rob Sargeant who took footage that his wife shot of a domestic home maintenance problem and turned it into a funny medley. Thanks for everyones submissions. Tune in later this week for the latest challenge.
