You're a certified creative type, but do you ever think about where your inventiveness originates? This weekend, we ask you to tap into your subconscious genius by exploring your dreams. To make this easier, we're resurrecting a classic Vimeo Project started by ErickC just over four years ago: the Dream Description.
To give this timeless challenge a twist, longtime Vimean Dustin Grella will create a dreamy animation using the audio from the winning video! (If you haven't checked out Dustin's project, the Animation Hotline, you're in for a treat.)
In addition to getting to collaborate with Dustin, the winner of this contest will receive a free Plus account! If you're already a Plus member, you can gift Plus to whomever you choose, and we'll give you an extra 2.5GB of upload space for your account. The runner-up will receive an extra 2.5GB of upload capacity, Plus member or not.
+ Go to sleep with your camera next to your bed.
+ As soon as you wake up, grab your camera and record yourself recounting your dream in as much detail as possible. But keep it under 1 minute! You don't want US to fall asleep, do you?
+ When you're finished, upload it and submit your video to the Weekend Project Group.
Remember that only videos made specifically for this project will be considered. All submitted videos must be approved by the Vimeo Staff before appearing in the Group, so don't worry if your video doesn't show up right away. We'll get to it. Promise!
All submissions are due by Tuesday, February 21st at 11:59 PM (EST).
