Aristotle once said that the greatest form of beauty is symmetry. Many filmmakers avoid symmetrical images in order to stick to the standard “Rule of Thirds”, but some embrace centering their subjects to create unique, complex images.
Director, Wes Anderson is known to center his subjects quite often! And hey, if it's good enough for Wes, it's good enough for me! Check out this great compilation, Wes Anderson // Centered done by kogonada below!
This weekend, I challenge YOU to create your very own centered masterpiece! You can choose to either tell an original story or showcase a collection of clips. The rules are simple; conceptualize, shoot and edit a video (no more than one minute in length) using only shots where the subject is centered. Keep in mind: your final video does not need to be symmetrical by any means, only centered! Feel free to play with asymmetry and balance as long as your subject is in the center of the frame. Good luck and have fun!Continue reading…
For this weekend’s challenge, we’d like you to laugh in the face of Monday’s monotony and create a video infused with repetition. Whether that occurs in the form of a recurring color theme or pattern, a cyclical motion or action, or something else entirely, it’s up to you; go wild! Be free, creative community! (Except the video should be under one minute…but we doubt that’ll stifle you too much.)
Here’s an example of a video featuring repetition (in this case, of a pattern)
Yoda once said, “Do or do not. There is no try. Only do.” Our nerdy selves can't help but notice-- that is one HECK of a call to action. And it got us thinking, what if we all channeled our wise, inner swamp alien and became as passionate about DOING as Yoda? The world would be a way better place.
So here’s where our Weekend Challenge comes in: CREATE A CALL TO ACTION! It can be as straightforward as “Floss More” or as intricate as “Save the Manatees!” No act is too big or too small! Whatever you are passionate about doing, get the Vimeo community onboard! Make a short video (no more than 60 seconds) urging viewers to act, and make Yoda proud. May the force be with you!

Greetings, Vimeans. Welcome to the new year!
I hope you've had a chance to peruse our 2014: Year in Video a.k.a. Staff Favorites page and watch curation’s Best of Vimeo 2014. Last year, the good people of Vimeo Video School chose three particularly perplexing pieces from that top 10 list and picked the brains of their makers. And we've gone and done it again for 2014! I guess that makes it an annual tradition.Continue reading…
