Hi, I'm an ardent member of the 1 Minute Video Project on Vimeo. What the hell am I talking about? It's a simple idea: shoot something for one minute without camera movement or editing, using natural light and sound. Slap it up on Vimeo. That's it.
You might think: that sounds goofy. Or perhaps even worse—boring. But I disagree. True, these little snapshots (like the animated portraits in the Harry Potter books) are not "standard movie fare." But I'm a fan of staring at things and soaking up my surrounding environment. This just places a rectangle around that state of mind.
And sometimes I shoot just for sound. Listening is underrated! Soak up some surroundings.
