+ Make a 17-second video with one 5 second clip, one 7 second clip, and one 5 second clip.
+ Use a haiku, either in the audio or with visuals like titles or text in the video.
+ If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, or something from theVimeo Music Store!

As you may know, haikus are a type of Japanese poetry composed of just three phrases (or lines) with a syllable structure like the (not-so-great) poem above:


5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

So, for this Challenge, your video structure should be similar to the poem structure, like this:

Just stick to that structure, and make sure there’s a haiku in the video. You should write your own poem, or use someone else’s with their permission. You can read the haiku, or with text on (or in) the video.
