5 Shots (5 seconds each): Pause

5X5: Pause

If you don’t already know, the 5×5 format is very simple: a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound. With those constraints, conscientious decisions and creativity really shine.

Our theme is “Pause” — with only 25 seconds, how will you decide to interpret the theme? Maybe you’ll share 5-second snippets of your day, like a micro-documentary, or you could go for something a little avant-garde, full of color and texture and subtlety. Anything goes, as long as it’s made of 5 clips, 5 seconds each, and has natural sound.

 

This project is great for practicing new techniques, and focusing in on something that you might not spend time on otherwise. Think about how you could use different aspects of moviemaking, like transitionsunique shots, and natural sound. There’s plenty of beauty and lots to tell in only 25 seconds.
