Stills In Motion

Out of the blue
of the sky and the water
black silhouettes
of bathers, parents children
playing laughing running
living a hot summer day
brief jolts of joy
like lightning bolts
out of and into the blue

Stills In Motion (SIM) is a concept designed to combine elements of traditional framed art and the new possibilities of video. SIMs retain the "permanent frame" character of traditional paintings, drawings, and photos. But they differ in allowing all the dynamic elements of video to play in that frame. Unlike in most videos, the camera itself does not move, though subject, light, focus, etc. can move/change in SIMs.

Clearly, the SIM concept is not completely new, but coining it and bringing together work under that rubric may be fun and stimulate more work along those lines. Related Groups are the "1 minute project" and "The Pictures Don't Move," many of which have already been added to this Channel.

So what is the same and what is different in the criteria of the Stills in Motion Channel?

THE SAME as in the 1 minute project and "The Pictures don't move" Group is:
1. No camera movement (zoom, pan, ...)
DIFFERENT in SIM is:
2. Editing is fine. It is not required, but also not discouraged.
3. No restrictions on sound. No sound, original sound, created sound are all fine.
4. Duration of 1 minute or less.

You are invited to add any videos that fit this profile to the Vimeo GROUP "Stills in Motion."
